When I visited the local hardware store last week, I noticed a promotion they were running by the checkout counter.
- If you signed up for their debit card, then you could receive 40% off your first purchase.
Normally, I wouldn’t participate in something prefer this because I already have a debit card. On this morning though, I was intrigued because I had a big purchase coming up as well as I could legitimately use that 40% off. I needed a new air conditioner plan as well as it was going to cost me several thoUSnd dollars to have it installed. Before signing up for the debit card though, I took an information packet apartment with me as well as I study all the great print. I wanted to be sure that I could use it on the air conditioner plan that I wanted. It wasn’t worth signing up for if I couldn’t. Thankfully, there was nowhere in the great print about not being able to use it, so I went ahead as well as registered for the card. This turned out to be 1 of the best financial decisions I ever made because it saved me thoUSnds of dollars. I was able to charge the air conditioner plan to the debit card as well as after that I was reimbursed for 40%. I also was able to pay off the new AC plan within a matter of weeks so there was no interest gained. I’m legitimately glad that I saw that promotion during 1 of our visits to the hardware store.
