Welcome to money Monday, where I share my highs and lows from a week of money management. It was a plain-Jane week for us.
This week I started planning our 2019 family trip – we’re thinking Hawaii…? In my mind it’s more of a challenge than anything. We’re not your typical “beach” family, instead preferring ice, snow, and harsh landscapes. That’s why we love Iceland so much… and love live in Alaska!
My challenge? Hawaii, I dare you to make us love you.My challenge? Hawaii, I dare you to make us love you. Click To Tweet
I have a feeling the tropics will win.
Wise Money Management
This week I saved money by getting a $100 statement credit on my Alaska Airlines VISA. The credit was awarded after I met the required spending on a travel card that I applied for three months ago.
This awesome deal netted me a $100 credit (this basically covered the annual fee), 30,000 miles (that’s three round-trip tickets to visit my folks!), and free companion pass.
I found this deal by keeping an eye on Flyer Talk.
This week I accidentally double-ordered from Amazon… twice! I now have two sets of a men’s bowling shoe (that I didn’t need), and two bottles of kids vitamins. The vitamins will go into the cupboard and get used, but I’ll be sending the bowling shoes back, a $7.73 mistake.
At least Amazon makes returns incredibly easy (just print off a return slip and drop it off at your local UPS store).
How did you manage money wisely this week?
