More Unexpected Cash

January 25th, 2011 at 04:16 am

This evening, my nephew surprised me with another $100. I believe I will throw it at my credit card debt.

In other financial news, my Inbox dollars account is up to $41.64. If I request a check, I get the message about the $3 fee. I am waiting for a $6 payment from Nielsen (that one is paid after 35 days) and $15 for applying for a Sony card (through Capital One). Once I hit $50, if there is still a $3 fee then I will just pay it. At the moment, I prefer to wait just a bit longer and see if I can avoid it.

And finally, it looks as though my income tax situation for 2010 is refunds of $1600 or so. I received my 1098T (for tuition) today and will run a diagnostic tomorrow to determine which credit works best for me, or perhaps take the deduction. Then I will be all ready to e-file, and will be more concrete than "$1600 or so". My car insurance will need to be paid soon, so I will deposit $800 into checking to cover that, and the rest will go towards credit card debt reduction.

    That's too bad they're still charging a fee. Maybe it's because you're wanting a check?

    I just hit a little over $30.00; and they want to charge me a $3.00 processing fee. It also said, if I can get my account to $40 in the next 30 days, they will waive the fee. I don't think so. It took over a year to get to $30. I have requested my check for the balance and I am going to close down my inboxdollars once I get my check. But, of course, they credited my account with a $3.00 for being a loyal inboxdollar member. Really. I am going to start using all my online searches through Swagbucks and Easier to work with.
