Inflating the sadly deflated Extraneous Fund

November 7th, 2013 at 09:35 am

I made a note in my calendar to follow up with Bank of America regarding a promotion (spend $500 get $100). I completely forgot about it until I flipped through the calendar.

I made a quick call and my redemption options included a check in the amount of $108.23. I opted for that and I should have the check in my mitts in 14 days. Hoot hoot!

So: $100 from tomorrow, $15 from dog walking, $50 (realistically garnered from grocery account), and this $108.23, I am feeling a bit better.

I also forgot to add the issue with the heater/thermostat. We're running at 63 in the mornings and 69 during the day. Our thermostat doesn't seem to be working. It came with the house and we've been here going on nine years. DH thinks it most likely is the problem because the furnace did run fine after it stopped working efficiently and we put new batteries in. That was last week. I'll have my stepdad do it next Monday. Not sure how much thermostats cost, either. Til then we'll love our space heater and have to wear extra sweaters.

Adding to the list of thing the extraneous funds needs to cover isn't as fun as adding funds to fund those. That is sort of a tongue-twister in itself.

And I haven't even factored in my birthday funds. Smile

    Very nice! Are you going to do the Capital One checking account promotion I mentioned on my blog? The money takes 50 days to receive, but could be a good snowflake for you at the end of the year.

    I didn't qualify because I already had accounts from when it was ING Frown Though I am considering the teen account for my girls. I wonder if that would qualify for the bonus.

    Darn! If I find another offer I'll let you know. The fine print on the referral offer does seem to indicate that that if the teen is a new customer to Capital One than they qualify for the bonus.

    Take a look on the My Money Blog (I think that's the name ..errr) He had a post within the last three weeks about a bank account paying $20/month in interest if you make 2 direct deposits/mo totaling $1500 and 2 ETF payments.
