I made $163 on a sick day!
Posted 30 September 2008 - 12:41 PM
during the last year I've been so distracted with wedding planning, that i have neglected to take care of annoying little things.
-netflix billed me for a movie that must have been lost in the mail.
-I was overcharged for my summer gym membership.
-the worst was a late fee on a tuition payment that I'm not incharge of paying. it should be covered through the grad school, so someone else was late.
-emusic charged me for a subscription i never used & tried to cancel several times. their customer service was the worst!!
so i sat down yesterday & made a bunch of phone calls. my grand total in refunded money- $163! i felt much better about sleeping the day away.

usually i'm on top of getting back money that i didn't owe, but i've been so burnt out lately. the wedding planning really took all my energy to do extra stuff.
i still need to confirm i wasn't overcharged by tivo for subscription i bought my mom a year ago. that is going to take longer than the others. i'll need to lay out a bunch of cc statements. i kept getting overcharged & then would call for a credit. but, i didn't take the time to make sure all the credits covered the overcharged ammounts.
it's so easy to just let it slide, but who knows. i might have overpaid $40.
unfortunately the overbilling from school is going to take more work to fix. i'm still dealing with that one so i guess i tallyed up the $163 too fast.
the other thing i took care of was that dillards never sent my 20% off coupon for completing my registry. I got that taken care of & next week I'm off to get the rest of my fiestaware with giftcards.
it's unfortunate that you can't trust bills to be right all the time. i get so many errors that i wouldn't notice if i didn't spend the time every so often to look for them.

i've never done this one b/c i don't carry balances, but if you call your credit card companies, you can often negotiate a lower interest rate.
I also reshuffled my money in various savings accounts/ cds to get a better return.
my sick day is coming to an end though. I'm going to have to drag myself to work eventually. i'm waiting until everyone that i could possibly infect is gone.
