Good Day, Bank Promotions, Etc.

March 9th, 2013 at 02:39 pm

Mailed off the tax return, Certified Mail. The return was completed several weeks ago but we owed a bit so I was in no hurry to actually mail it.

At the same time I mailed off a couple packages for the eBay sales I do to raise funds for a non-profit, through the eBay Giving Works program.

Dragged DH in to the bank to sign off on some documents. While he was away on his most recent business trip I opened up accounts at BBVA Compass due to some very nice promotions. Not only will I be getting a free Kindle Fire HD, we will also be earning some nice cash bonuses after 2 years. I found out about the Kindle promotion at DepositAccounts.com and learned about the cash bonuses after walking in to a branch and talking to a banker.

Got some free (tho not very tasty) coffee while at the bank Smile

I remember the first time I walked in to a bank to ask if they had any promotions going on that they weren't advertising. I was so nervous & a bit embarrassed! Now I do it any time I'm jonesing for a higher interest rate or bonus. Most of the time there is nothing, but occasionally I hit pay dirt. Brand new branches are a good place to go if you want to try this, because they usually eager to get new customers through the doors.

Went to the library and checked out some DVDs and an audiobook.

Now it's time for a walk because there is a break in the much-needed rain. I have PUSHED myself to keep going for a walk every day since my dog died. It was hard at first but is now becoming routine. I carry some of my late pup's treats in my pocket, and if I meet a dog and the owner says it's OK, I exchange a treat for a little puppy lovin'.

So, financially this has been a "plus" day and an enjoyable one as well.

    The dog treats are a great idea. Makes you happy, and I'm sure the pups get excited as well!

    How do you like Farenheit 451?

    mrjube94: Farenheit 451 is an example of a book that probably would have been better had I read the print version, so that I could look at and really appreciate how the author had crafted his sentences. I liked it, but I think I may have liked it even more if I had the hard copy.

    I listen to audiobooks because I have a fairly long commute (1 hour plus each way). My routine is: NPR in the morning, audio book in the evening. Smile
    This time I picked up "Blood Oath" ... After resisting for decades, I FINALLY decided to give a vampire book a chance. Never read Anne Rice, Twilight, etc. This one seemed a tad more appealing than those books ever did.

    Yeah! You're right branch new branches of banks are the great place to go. That is why if you want to invest or looking for a bank that would accommodate you, visit the new branches near you, I'm sure they'll welcome you full kindheartedly. Update us on your new journeys!! Cheers!
