Sweet Little Mortgage Chip

October 25th, 2013 at 06:58 pm

This evening, I have an email that Swagbucks has deposited $5.00 into my Dwolla account. I logged in, requested a transfer to my bank account, and was advised the transfer will take 2-3 business days.

Since October is waning, I logged in to WF and transferred $5.08 to my mortgage. (Dwolla gave me eight whole cents during the verification process. So generous!)

Swagbucks just got a whole lot more fun for me. Currently, I have enough to redeem for another $5 Dwolla gift card. That will make a fine little mortgage chip in a week or so.

Tomorrow morning my mom and I are driving north to Redding to visit my niece. She lives in Tacoma, WA but is in Redding for a week or so. We will spend the night and drive home Sunday. Should be a fun weekend. Smile

    awesome! what's the difference between paypal and dwolla?

  2. Petunia 100 Says:

    They are very similar as far as I can tell, Starfishy. Dwolla does charge a $.25 fee on transactions over $10.

    Unfortunately, there is a limit of 1 $5.00 Dwolla gift card.

    I think you are correct, Kaysmom. I did see the "limit 1 per account", but I had thought that meant 1 at the discounted price of 400 SB.

    I wrote to customer service and asked, and received a reply which did not at all answer my question. I replied and asked again, and received a reply asking me to rate the quality of service I had received. So, I guess I will not be receiving an answer.

    However, I do not see an option to purchase $5 Dwolla cards for 500 SB.

    Poo! I suppose I will just have to wait until I reach 2500 SB and redeem for a $25 PayPal credit.

    I think it's great that you're putting these extra little chips towards your mortgage - they may not seem like much, but when you do it often enough it's surprising how you can chip away at it. Smile

    Thanks Travis. Smile
