Got the Chase card

June 17th, 2014 at 03:21 pm

Finally, the Chase Freedom card arrived in my mailbox. I verified it this morning, and I'll use it later today to pay my insurance premium.

I haven't received the reward yet from my Quicksilver card, but I've more than reached the $500 goal. I assume it will come in the next billing cycle.

Yesterday was a no-spend day. And I didn't use very much of my own food stores, either. With all the free muffins and fruit available, I made them my breakfast and lunch (supplemented by the yogurt I brought from home). For dinner I made a couple of cheese quesadillas and finished up a head of lettuce in a salad.

This morning there were still muffins left, so it was my breakfast again. I'm sure the fruit is in the fridge -- I didn't investigate yet -- but I will later.

I have two packages of chicken breasts to process when I get home tonight. I think I'll cook some chicken strips to put in salad and freeze the rest.

I'm out of Keurig cups, so I think tomorrow I'll just bring a bag of coffee. The drip coffeemaker is still set up in the break room. If I make a pot, someone else might take a cup -- but I think it would still be cheaper! And I actually like the drip coffee better.

Today it's muggy and windy -- storms are forecast, but may be hit or miss. I managed to stay dry this morning -- this evening's walk may be something different!

    I sent in for the chase freedom through an online link but when they sent it to me in the mail there is no mention of the 200 back when you spend 500. Was that how yours was? I guess i need to call!

    Yes, I applied online, but the paper included with the card did not mention the $200 bonus. If you call, I'll be curious to know what they said.

    My packet mentioned a $100 bonus. I just emailed them and they credited the extra $100 to my account immediately after I spent the $500 requirement.

    @guppy, I don't think the Chase bonus will be in your mailer, but it will be applied. You can use the message system on your account to verify with customer service.

    I notice there are small containers available for sale that are easily filled with regular coffee and used in the Keurig or Tassimo coffee machines. It's way cheaper to buy K-cups on line but the downside is how many boxes you need to order to bypass mail charges.

    My packet came in the mail on Saturday, and there was no mention of the $200 Bonus or any Bonus.

    Snafu, I used to have a refillable cup but I gave it away! Didn't think I'd get stuck with a Keurig again!
