Some Extra Income to Add

August 8th, 2009 at 12:03 am

I received a refund check in the mail today for $5, plus I earned a whopping 29 cents from YouData. So that will get added to my total for the week.

Have a great evening!

$2.73 Profit

August 2nd, 2009 at 06:22 pm

Today I went to CVS and got some school supplies, Softsoap Body Wash, and Blink Tears Eye Drops, and a bag of Sun Chips (just to bring my total to a bit over $20). After manufacturers' coupons, ECBs, CVS ($4 off $20) coupon, I made $2.73!!

I also had another $0.50 EB which I earned based on my spring spending. So that actually brings the savings to $3.23!!

Overpayment Refund

July 24th, 2009 at 01:45 am

I received a check in the mail yesterday from the physician's office for an overpayment on an office visit for DD. It is for $20, so I will include that in my extra income for the week.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

It Was a Busy Weekend!

July 21st, 2009 at 02:20 am

Of course Saturday I worked. I got out about 1 hour early...last patients (a family of three) didn't show for their appointments.

After I got home, I did laundry and yard work. I mowed the grass, pruned some bushes, and bagged the twigs/weeds.

Then Sunday I had another Cheesecake Factory mystery shop assignment to complete. Since it was for brunch, the children & I left at 9 AM, as it was about a 2 hour drive. It was located in a mall, so we did some window shopping (lots of high end stores that I have never bought anything at). After that we went to a tourist area near the bay and spent all day there. I bought several books for DD & DS at Barnes & Noble there...cost about $42. Then we got some ice cream that was $12. Throughout the day I found a dime & 4 pennies as we were walking around. Smile On the way home, we stopped at Walmart. We finally arrived back home about 11 PM. It was a fun day and everyone seemed to enjoy it.

+++
I got another refund check in the mail today for $10.97.

DD & I walked the dog tonight and I found another penny along the street...so 15 cents in found money over the last two days!

Have a great evening!

Samples, Survey, & Checks

July 16th, 2009 at 04:26 am

Today I received a free sample from Wal-mart that I requested a few weeks ago for a roll of Scott Toilet Paper and a package of Scott Flushable Wipes.

+++
I did a Pinecone survey last night & today I $3 was DD into my Paypal account.

+++
So far this week I have gotten $30.98 in refund checks in the mail.


Looks like I have another $33.98 towards the extra income fund!

Just an update

July 10th, 2009 at 11:49 am

I sold another item on Ebay this week. After shipping/selling fees I netted $6.94 so I will add that to my extra income fund.

+++
Yesterday in the mail I got a refund check for $2.97 plus a Rita's mystery shop reimbursement check in the amount of $2.34...all of which will get added to the deposit for the week.

Have a wonderful Friday!

Refund Checks + Gift Cards

July 3rd, 2009 at 11:17 pm

I got $6.88 in refund checks in the mail this week.

Today I transferred a prescription from another pharmacy for DD to earn a $25 GC at Rite Aid. The copay for generic prescriptions is $15, so I profited $10 there.

I recently got reimbursed for the Cheesecake Factory mystery shop I did a few weeks ago. The repayment of monies spent is rewarded in the form of a GC, so I got $30 for that. I have another mystery shop scheduled there for tonight, so I am able to use the GC for the assignment. This one I'm doing tonight pays $40 reimbursement!

So I will add the $40 from the GCs + the refund checks to my extra income fund for the week.

Have a great evening!!

Saturday News

June 14th, 2009 at 02:37 am

Today I found a penny by the gas pump when I was filling up my car.

Then in the mail I received a Rite Aid refund check for $4.99 + the title to my car that I paid off last week!! Smile

So a pretty good mail day and $5 to add to the extra income fund for next week!



Money In The Parking Lot + Refund Check

May 31st, 2009 at 04:32 am

Today after work I went with DD to Wal-mart. As we were walking through the parking lot to the store, I noticed some dollar bills in the middle of the road. Now I haven't found anything but coins in probably years. I was very excited to have found 2-$1 bills!! Smile

Also, I got a refund check in the mail today for $2.99.

So a total of $4.99 to send to the extra income fund!

Reimbursement + Rebate Check

May 15th, 2009 at 12:24 am

Last week I took a continuing education course one evening relating to my field. It was for 3 hours & cost $95. I paid for it several weeks ago, then this week my employer reimbursed me for it. Since I had already budgeted that amount out of my pay, I decided to mail a check for that amount to the car loan principal.

+++

In the mail today, I received a refund check for $14.95, which will get added to the extra income fund.

Have a great evening!


I found 5 cents!

May 9th, 2009 at 10:38 pm

I found a nickel in the Walmart parking lot today, right by my car door!

Plus I got a refund check in the mail for $1.49.

More $ to the extra income fund!!

I Finally Got My Rebate...

May 1st, 2009 at 11:42 pm


for the Goodyear tires I purchased in February. The amount is $25. I also got another refund check in the mail for $2.39. Both of these checks will be added to the extra income fund for the week!

Have a great evening!!

Another Check

April 26th, 2009 at 01:16 am

I got a Citicard Rewards check in the mail today for $52.71, so I will add that to the weekly deposit for the extra income fund.

I also got some samples in the mail that I requested online a few weeks ago--some coffee and a breakfast cereal bar.

It looks like Walgreen's is doing Register Rewards similar to CVS with the Extra Care Bucks as an alternative to their monthly rebate program...at least that seems to be the case in my area.

Have a great evening!!

2 cents & a refund check

April 23rd, 2009 at 11:12 pm

I found another 2 pennies...one last night at a convenience store and another one today again in the locker room.

I also got a refund check in the amount of $2.39. So an additional $2.41 to the extra income fund!!

Today was payday so now I'm going to work on the finances Smile

Just when I thought my only extra income would be 22 cents....

April 8th, 2009 at 05:58 pm

I received 2 refund checks in the mail today totaling $15.93! Yeah...so I will have something more substantial to deposit for the week into the extra income fund!!

Have a nice frugal day!

WAG + Extra Income Fund Deposit!!

April 4th, 2009 at 10:59 pm

On my way to work I decided to stop at Walgreen's since I drive right by it. I got items worth $6.77 for only $0.28!! I bought:

One a Day Multivitamin Drink Mix
Chapstick 100% Naturals Lip Butter
Skintimate Cream Shave

I will get $1.49 rebate on the One a Day + I got $5 RR on the other two items!

+++

I'm depositing $359.80 to the extra income fund for the week:

Saturday income.....$ 329.27
Refund checks.......$ 13.10
March interest......$ 7.41
Cell phone sale.....$ 10.00
Found money.........$ 0.02

That brings the account to $3,109.53.

Have a great evening!!

Interest + Cell Phone Check

April 3rd, 2009 at 10:03 pm

I earned $7.41 in interest from my various accounts in March, so I will add that to my extra income fund.

Yesterday I received a $10 check in the mail from selling an old cellphone at sellmyoldcellphone.com. I no longer needed it and it was an older model so I figured I could get a few dollars for it. I have some other cellphones that I plan on donating to a charity.

So another $17.41 towards the extra income deposit for the week!

Car Loan Update

March 31st, 2009 at 03:57 pm

My last principal payment of $70 has been applied to my account on the car loan, so now I only owe $2847.99!!

I plan to get a few more refund offers ready to send out today, then I must go to work!!

Have a great day!!

Extra income update

March 30th, 2009 at 10:54 pm

Today I got another refund check in the mail for $6.75. I will add that to my week end deposit.

I have 835 points accumulated with Global Test Market. Only 165 more before I can cash out. I noticed on the GTM blog that in the near future, Paypal deposits & gift cards will be ways that they payout as opposed to only being able to request a check. So I'm looking forward to that Smile


Found a penny + more checks today!

March 28th, 2009 at 09:43 pm

I stopped by a convenience store to use the ATM and I found a penny heads up on the floor in front of the machine!

In the mail I received 2 refund checks for a total of $6.35.

Since I already made the extra income deposit for this week, I have $6.36 accumulated already towards next week's deposit!!

Have a safe weekend!

Another good mail day + NSD

March 24th, 2009 at 10:42 pm

Today in the mail I received another $10.68 in refund checks. I also received the instant VIA Starbucks coffee samples that I requested a few weeks ago.

Last night I completed a Pinecone survey and today the money ($3) was in my Paypal account. Extremely efficient Smile

I had another no-spender today also!!

So another $13.68 to throw into the extra income fund at the end of the week!

Monday Update

March 23rd, 2009 at 10:56 pm

Today in the mail I received a refund check for $1.90....more $$ to the extra income fund!! Also, the $10 GC for Outback Steakhouse that I requested last week as a result of doing a health care survey arrived today. Very efficient! This is the first time that I've done surveys for them, so I wasn't sure what to expect. But I was very pleased with how quickly I received the card!

I stopped after work at the grocery store and picked up a cantaloupe, salad greens, collard greens, blueberries, etc. and spent about $13. I used a $0.50 off $6 of produce coupon that I printed from showing my rewards card.

Have a great evening!!

$2.54

March 20th, 2009 at 11:49 pm

Today I found a nickel in the locker room at work.

Also got another refund check for $2.49.

So another $2.54 to the extra income fund for the week!

More $$ to the fund!

March 19th, 2009 at 03:32 pm

A few weeks ago I completed a survey online for health care professionals with the incentive being $10. I got an email notification stating that my payout has been processed. It is payable in the form of a GC so I have to go to the website to choose the business from which I want the GC. I think I will choose the Outback Restaurant.

In addition I received a few rebate checks today in the amount of $52.93 so I will add that + the $10 survey income to my "extra income" fund at the end of the week.

Good mail day!

March 15th, 2009 at 01:09 am

Today I received a rebate check from Walgreen's February Easy Saver for $33.95 + a $7 check from Survey Savvy that I requested a few weeks ago. Both items will get deposited into the extra income fund next week.

I also got a sample packet of hot breakfast cereal that I requested from Cream of Wheat.

Now I'm off to watch the Suze Orman show!

$57 Store CC Rewards

March 3rd, 2009 at 06:34 pm

Yesterday in the mail I got a coupon good for $57 based on my purchases for last year at a local chain department store. I wasn't even aware that the store tracked expenses, so that was a nice surprise...some extra $ available when I shop for some spring/summer clothes!

Have a great day!!

Sunday news

February 22nd, 2009 at 06:22 pm

Today is going to be another no-spender. We have more than enough food for at least a week. There is plenty of gas in the vehicles also.

I looked at the coupon inserts in the Sunday newspaper and didn't seem worth much this week. I'm going to get some refund offers ready to mail out tomorrow for some items I purchased yesterday.

I updated my profiles on Global Test Market surveys. I have over 500 points there so I am half-way to cashing out with that company. I requested a $3 check from Survey Spot today also.

Have a relaxing Sunday!!

Found more $ and extra income deposit

February 22nd, 2009 at 12:10 am

Today I stopped at Sheetz on the way home from work to fill up gas tank and found a dime inside the store near an ATM.

$4

February 18th, 2009 at 06:24 pm

I got a $4 rebate check in the mail today from Rite Aid. That will go to the extra income account.

I have been comparison shopping with some auto dealerships and online tire companies to find the best price on tires. I found a couple of other sites besides tirerack.com that have lower prices + free shipping. I am still doing some research though.
