Yesterday I got 3 Walgreens gift cards from Gift Card Rescue that were discounted for 3% off. That's not much, but I use them all the time so I might as well have the $3+ in my pocket. I get another 1% for using my credit card to purchase them.

I went to Staples today and got a $50 gift card that came with a free Sharpie pen, plus a $10 bonus card that can be used the first 2 weeks in January. I paid for the card using an 8% discounted Staples card. So no out of pocket money.

I went to Safeway and Walmart this morning. At Safeway I got 3 free travel size boxes of Tide, some celery and some coleslaw mix. I looked at my receipt when I was done and saw I was only $4 away from another .10 off in gas. Since I was going to get gas next I went back and got $4 of tomatoes on sale for .99/lb.

I got gas and saved .70/gal. Paid $2.59/gal and spent about $48+ to fill up my tank and two 5-gal gas cans.

At Walmart I used a bunch of coupons and got several trial size items for free. 2 Herbal Essences shampoo, 1 Pantene shampoo, and 1 Old Spice body wash. I'll donate the body wash but can use the shampoos.

When I got home there was a call from my credit card company wanting to know if I made a purchase from match.com. I definitly haven't signed up for any dating services, so I called them back. They are cancelling my card and sending me another one tomorrow. What a pain. I have to call the 3 utilities that I have set up for automatic deductions and give them the new number, but at least I don't have to pay for someone else's charges. I have no idea how someone got my number and I don't know why if you stole someone's number you would use it to pay for dating services... As much as I hate credit card companies tracking my every move, I'm glad it was caught so fast. The purchase was made this morning.

I finished reading my book Drink of Me by Jacqueline Frank. Paranormal - pretty good.

    Purchasing dating services with a stolen number does seem quite strange. I would think it would be very easily traceable. Stinks having to get a new card .. knock on wood - it's been about three years since I had to get 3 new numbers in the space of 18 months or so. Not fun.
