Anyone else can't...

Re: Anyone else can't...

I lay it out a month ahead of time. (Wife ALWAYS MESSES UP MY PLAN of course)

 

Then I leave the cards I have said will not get use that month at home.

 

It saves me a lot of headaches.  (Unless wife finds where I hid them at home of course)

Reading this thread made me think about how I paid for my sisters baby shower today(for my mom she's paying me, I just wanted the points), it was over 500 dollars so I put it on my cities dividend cars to fulfill requirement and get the 100 dollar bonus, and than realized I could have used my freedom (the party was at a restaurant!) and I would have 30 dollars back and figured out a different way to spend the 500 on the dividend, dang!

Yep, that's me! Once I realize I made the mistake, I feel the urge to go back, return and repurchase. I don't, of course, since that would be really silly and unnecessary. I just end up feeling really guilty that I didn't potentially earn the maximum rewards possible Smiley LOL

I would leave them at home, but I am always paranoid that once I am out and about, I will go buy something and think about how I could've used the card I left at home and would regret not having the card. So with all my intention of leaving some of my cards home, I always end up taking them all with me anyway. I think I have a problem! lol

Re: Anyone else can't...

No, I dont have that problem.

 

I pick out 1 card before we leave.

 

I only carry one card at a time.

 

The other cards stay under lock and key. (For my protection as well as others lol)
