Amazon Credit Card Bites The Dust 1/25!

Gone!  We paid $99.01 to send our Amazon Credit Card out the door forever!  So I'm sure our credit score will take a hit because I just called and also closed out the account.  Ha!  I'm aiming for zero as a credit score by the time this is all done.  I just want these things gone!  So why did we even have this one?  They were offering $30 towards any purchase at Amazon.  It was near Christmas two years ago and I really wanted to get the kids an advent calendar.  I found a Lego one where they got to build a character every day.  Price=$30.  So I got if for free, but Chase (the holder of this Amazon card) got more than that from us.  The finance charges they got over the next two years on our purchases that we didn't pay off was probably in the $60 range.  So my "free" Lego advent calendar really cost me $60.  That's stupid math.

  4. Thanks, Diane! We're excited to finally pay something off. Thanks for encouraging us. It's going to be a long haul, but we're ready. I just figured out I'm going to be buying 50 boxes of cereal for $17 and 30 boxes of granola bars for $12 with the new ads coming out tomorrow. I guess we'll be stocked for a while:)
