Re: What happened to the CC that rounded up and put $ into Savings

Even though most of my banking is at one place, I did open a rewards checking account at a Credit union for 5.09%, have to use the debit card 12 times a month, online banking, direct deposit or auto debit or online billpay, and online statements. 


This year it's gone down to 4.09%, but that's still the best interest rate around, and after I do the 12 debit transactions it's a savings acount for me. 


I could never do keep the change because there are littleally months where I need every penny I've set aside for spending.

2/11/09: TU: 773, EQ: 790, EX:790
11/16/08: TU: 773, EQ: 785, EX: 780
Goals for 2009: 0 Credit Card Debt & 0% Util (achieved 2/6/09), Mortgage! (achieved 11/2/09), getting closer to 800 scores (I crossed this earlier this year, but I'm sure I'm not there anymore!)
