Why NOW Is Home Fix-Up Time
In the summer of 1998, there were two movies about an asteroid coming to destroy Earth. TWO! “Armageddon” & “Deep Impact”. The odds of that happening are about as remote as, well… an asteroid destroying our planet, AM I RIGHT PEOPLE?! Pardon me for yelling into the microphone.
Here’s another freakish coincidence – of discounts. Now through June 30th, all THREE cards I wrote about here are giving 5% cash back at Home Depot (Citi Dividend), Lowe’s (Chase Freedom), or Home Improvement Stores (Discover it) up to a certain amount. The 5% cash back is limited to purchases up to $6,000 annually (Citi Dividend) and $1,500 per quarter (Chase Freedom & Discover it). Besides 5% cash back which could total $450 tax free, you could also get $200 tax free in sign up bonuses.
Another 10% off
If you are planning on doing some fixing up around the homestead, please read my post “Craigslist for Coupons = Big Savings”. That will tell you how to find 10% off coupons.
$10,000 for only $8,350
Let’s say you have a $10,000 project. Slap down the 10% off coupons. Suddenly your project only costs $9,000.
Pay for $6,000 at Home Depot. Use Citi Dividend. 5% = $300 cash back.
Pay for $1,500 at Lowe’s. Use Chase Freedom. 5% = $75 cash back.
Pay for $1,500 at Home Improvement stores. Use Discover it. 5% = $75 cash back.
Both Chase Freedom and Citi Dividend offer to pay you $100 if you spend $500 in the first three months since your card was opened. Doing the above will get you $100 from each = $200 total.
When all is said and done you will have earned approximately 16% off with coupons, cash back and sign-up bonuses.
