Received Rebate Check for Using Other Peoples Money

We received our rebate check this past week from our American Express Credit Card. This is an example of how you too can use other peoples money (credit card) for buying your everyday purchases and receive a cash back rewards check at the end of the year. Ours was only in the amount of $48.06 and that isn't alot of money but every bit helps. We live a rather frugal lifestyle and our spending habits aren't as high as they used to be when we were raising our family.

Think of the dollars you spend everyday raising a family and paying your household bills online, then take 1% of that and your cash back rewards check will be much larger than ours. Next time you are paying your bills online or go shopping for your everyday purchases, think about using a cash back rewards credit card and earn a cash back rewards check at the end of the year for paying your bills online and purchasing what you normally would anyway.

You will notice this check isn't made out to our name but rather to Costco Wholesale. That's perfectly okay because that's where we shop and this rebate check just lowered our next shopping trip to Costco Wholesale by that amount.


We're still looking forward to another cash back rewards check from our Discover Card, as you know they offered us an extra $20.00 Cash Back Bonus reward for using our Discover Card for our next 20 purchases.

This is My Money Game

I'm obsessed with my Discover card rewards. It's great to get 5% back on some things. It's easy to forget that you have to pay off your card every month in order to get the most from this benefit.

Christie,
Thanks for the visit and comment. The savings all add up over the course of time. Make it a game for paying all credit card bills in full each month so you can maximize your earnings.

Just a reminder, you will need to enable your profile for others to view your blog. I would love to stop by your site.
