Re: My first store card in 10 years

Nice!!!! I can't wait for the charge to apply and see how big I can make my certificate. :-) I saved buying some little items so that I can come back and get them for free! B-)

it should actually tell you when you log in. 

pending points. 

250=5 dollars they never fluctuate on that. 

 

x2 on the purchases, hdmi cables alone add up quickly. 

and best part is even if you use the cerificate it still goes towards more points =)

Re: My first store card in 10 years

They are doing system maintenance so none of my purchases show up until after 2/23 so right now, it shows I have zero points. :-(

I don't know if it was the store card or not but it sounds like you all think it is. I'll be sure to update when it arrives. If I only got $500, I would have closed it too! I was expecting a denial due to my 8 inquiries or $500. I was absolutely shocked! It was the biggest initial credit limit given since I fell off the credit pedestal 10 years ago. I can't believe that dark BK cloud has finally begun to move out the way! Move! LOL :smileyvery-happy:

Re: My first store card in 10 years

Thanks again all. I forgot to say that and I also wanted to say my husband needed HDMI cables too for his PS3 and they are very expensive...I hated that was needed too! I was going to go back up there and get the cleaner for the TV with my points. Do any of you use that special store cleaner for your TVs or am I wasting my money on that stuff?

what special cleaner? i just use a cloth. and 

yes the 50 dollar hdmi cables are really no better then the 30 dollar ones unless you have a FANTASTIC system. they really add up though (tv to cable,ps3/xbox dvd player, etc...) 

 

i have tried both (20,30,50) i hooked up the 50 one to my 3d player, 30 to my 360 on the 3d and 20 on the 360 to the 37' tv.

Re: My first store card in 10 years

Okay. That is what I was thinking. I was just going to use a damp cloth to wipe off the screen like I do to my laptop. I had a feeling that cleaner wasn't necessary.

We don't have an AWESOME system except for the home theater system...that was expensive. The TVs are pretty average in terms of pricing.
