Many Accomplishments Today !

August 22nd, 2011 at 04:05 pm

Today, in between work, I was able to accomplish a lot today!

-Called about a medical bill. Did all the legwork to prove THEIR error and still got the runaround. In the end, they confirmed I was right Smile Worth the 20 minutes on the phone

-Mailed 2 entries into an Acme sweepstakes. I had free envelopes & postage, so what can it hurt?

-Mailed a check for the water bill instead of paying a $1.50 online fee (don't you hate that?)

-Mailed a complaint letter to the CEO of Walmart. I tried contacting the store through email & a call to the store's manager, with no response in over a week. At this point, its absolutely ridiculous. So I wrote a letter regarding an incident where I was in line behind a woman who was berating the cashier (totally sympathize with the cashier at this point!). However when the customer left, it was my turn in line and instead of helping me, the cashier and the manager who had stepped in to help started a conversation where the cashier said "All customers are liars" and the manager agreed. What the heck? Ignore your next customer to degrade all the people who shop at your store? Hopefully the letter will turn into a teachable moment for those employees

-I listed a TON of stuff on Craigslist. I have only sold 1 DVD to a woman for $4.00, but it was so worth it to see her 7 year old daughter jumping up and down and screaming because she was getting The Dark Crystal Smile Totally made my & her day!

-I deposited $255 in cash towards my Germany trip as well as a $9.10 Ebates check. I had to laugh, when I picked up the mail coming back into the neighborhood, there was a $50.00 rewards check from Chase Smile

    Geez, that's the first I've heard of a FEE for paying online. I thought all these companies want to steer you in that direction becus it saves them money in mailing out paper statements. Go figure.

    Noticed comment re: on-line fee for utility payments. I suggest a review of other financial institutions, credit unions & on-line for better service, less fees, less greedy etc. If you pay off your CC each and every month when due, there is a benefit to charging utilities for cash back rewards.

    Yeah - the water company is a pain. They do charge for the online payment service (including credit cards). Between that & the yearly sewer bill, everything else is pay onlin for free Smile
