This is the first Saturday in awhile that my husband and I have been home. The morning found us in front of our computers reading our favorite news sources and columns, but then we took advantage of our down time … and then we started cleaning.
While going through papers that I was intending to shred for the compost bin, I found a letter from my bank. And while I usually just give this mail a cursory glance before filing or shredding, this one caught my attention – my bank has set up a program for debit card users to acquire reward points when using your card for purchases. Considering that I use my debit card for everything, I was all set to register for the program until my mind whispered “what’s the catch?” And sure enough, if you go down to the teeny, tiny fine print – there it is. A non-refundable, annual $12 fee to be part of the program.
I have to be honest – the idea of getting reward points for using my debit card is still pretty attractive, however, I think this is one deal that I’ll be content to let go.
