Requested a credit refund check from American Express for some Christmas gifts that I returned.
Bought a gift for a birthday party my daughter is attending today. Got a $17.99 gift, used a $5 off coupon, and paid with a $15 gift certificate I had. Net: $3 profit! :)
We have my daughter's birthday party today at Chuck E Cheese, so it will be a high expense day. We did make cupcakes ourselves with stuff I had on hand, and I made up the goody bags with some stuff I bought on clearance. This saved the Chuck E Cheese cost of cake ($10) and goody bags ($2 each x 9 kids = $18). So saved close to $28.
