Super Congrats!  Have fun!  Smiley Happy

 

A little humor:  In my household it's 95% ON, not 5% off  Smiley Very Happy

 

Just to keep perspective for DW, who has a terrible time passing up a good sale, bargain or discount Smiley Happy

Yeah - I hear you.  It's vacation card for gas and other emergencies.

Many congrats on the card.

I must admit, I'm a little jealous since I can't get that card Smiley Sad

Oh well, I'll just have to stick it out with NFCU Smiley Very Happy

Congratulations Pattycake!  I've enjoyed using my for the past 2 months or so.  I haven't spent a lot on it, but have already gotten back over $10.  You'll really like the card!

Re: Got my PenFed card today!

Oooh - I like the $10 thing.  I'm planning to use it for groceries and other things, and I told my son that if he needs to buy a laptop for school, to let me know so I can use my PenFed card for it to get the cash back.

 

This is going to be fun.

lessons - your FICOs are nothing to sneeze at..maybe in a few months you'll be able to get one, too!  I can't qualify for NFCU, and I'd really like to.  So it all works out!Smiley Happy

Does DW know about all the wonderful shopping you can do online with ShopDiscover? You could "save" the gas as well then.
