Jagular and Texaco

Jagular told me about the Texaco gas card in response to my ‘Where did Citgo go?’ post. I cannot remember if there is a Texaco close by but I will surely look out for it because I do so love to save money on gas. Thanks for the heads up Jagular. By the way if you have not read this guy’s blog you are missing out on a LOT! He has the serious posts and the funny ones and he writes about EVERYTHING. One question I have...

$10 bet…day 2

I made a bet with my boyfriend on Sunday 11/26/06 that I could lose 10lbs by Sunday 12/26/06. Why? Hmmmmmmmmm, maybe I went a little bit crazy for a few seconds. He did not think I could do it so we got the amount whittled to 5lbs lost in the two week period. That really got my blood boiling and I am convinced I can do it. In fact I will do more than 5 lbs and we will see what he has to say to that! Answers to some of the burning...

Red Flag! There is a card that I do not hold in my hand that is showing up on the report. No….I called customer service and told them I do have one card with their company but my credit report is showing that I have two. The lady says...

Big mistake

On a point of order…I got this fixed but did not want to delete the post. I called the credit card company and there was a problem with the website. I did pay on time…and the payment did go through. The website was just showing the wrong information. 11/26/06 Today I noticed that I had committed a debt-reduction sin. I completely forgot to check my software for the due date of one of my credit card...

Where did Citgo go?

I recently wrote about getting 3 cents off gas when you use your gas card. Well those gas cards were run by Circle K-Citgo gas stations. All of the Circle K-Citgo stores have been replaced with Valero gas stations. Valero does not offer the gas card with the 3 cent per gallon discount. I guess those gas savings are all gone now? Where oh where did Citgo go? Now I have to pay regular price for gas just like everyone else who did not...

PayPal card…again

One of the best cards I have found for daily use is the Paypal card. It is a debit card that you link to a paypal account. You can then link this account to your checking account for backup or have it as a stand alone account.The card gives you 1% cash back on all purchases. When you think about it you may say that 1% is not a lot to get back. Now compare this 1% cash back to 0% which is what you get when you use all your other debit...
