Unexpected Savings

September 20th, 2020 at 12:32 pm

My cell phone bill was $38.13 lower than last month. When I logged into my account to see what the difference was I found that I paid my last installment on my cell phone last month. 30 months of payments! I won't be trying to upgrade this cell phone anytime soon. I just pray that I don't start having problems with it. I upgraded to the iPhone X between my trips to England & Scotland and Greece because my phone was overheating & burning through the battery. I didn't want to go to Greece with an unreliable phone. And the iPhone X was such an upgrade as far as the camera. I have great pictures from Greece.

Although I get my credit report regularly I'm not sure if my phone was on it as a recurring payment. If so, it will probably drop my credit score by a few next update then eventually go back up.

I also received my $40 Costco gift card in the mail. It was part of the Groupon special when I purchased my membership. When I have room in my freezer I'll make another trip.

    My sister and I were just talking about how problems always seem to start occurring right after something is paid off or the warranty expires. Hoping you phone doesn't!

    Way to go on paying off the cellphone. Set up a sinking fund account and start saving for new phone.

    iPhones give such a long life! I got 6 years out of my last one and bought this one outright 2 years ago. I basically keep them until you can’t do iPhone updates anymore which means they are officially obsolete. Hope this one lasts you a long time too!
