Unexpected money

March 3rd, 2011 at 08:23 am

I found a bunch of "unexpected" money last week. First, I had forgotten all about the cash back on our credit cards. Over 20 months I accumulated $281 and my wife accumulated $221 in cash back, I cashed out $450. Our cash back is 2% on groceries and gas and 1% on everything else. That's a lot of stuff we put on our credit cards.

Then I got a check for last year's overpaid escrow of $370, and lastly my SEV value of my house was adjusted down 17% (ok, so I don't know if that's a good thing), meaning my property taxes will be 17% lower, or about $700 lower. Now if only I can get my tax refund.

    That's amazing. I hope you will be putting that towards your Emergency Fund!

    I like it when money comes from places that you don't expect. Make it count!!

    When it rains it pours, doesn't it? And sometimes we see that it leads to good things, and not only annoying ones. I think that I am going to look at some cash-back cards, it would be nice to have some insurance of money back on purchases that I am going to make (and pay off immediately) anyway!
