Have I used my Sears Card.
Which is why it was "invalid" this morning when I went to buy a dryer.
Turns out it was all for the best, though, as I decided to go with it and get a new Sears Card, which comes with a $10 signing bonus,
Making the Dryer, on sale from $449 to $349 only $356, taxes included, by the time we factored in the $20 from the "Scratch & Sniff" card and the $10 card credit.
Not bad for a morning's work.
It will be delivered to the store on Wednesday, so there should only be a couple more days of weather -watching- line- drying laundry.
And tomorrow and Monday were supposed to be sunny, last time I looked, so it's all good.
And I was only a little bummed that I didn't win one of the $5000 grand prize scratches.
It's a little addicting, though- makes me want to go back and buy a pair of shoes, and some socks, and various and multitudinous sundry objects- one at a time- to scratch many cards and have many chances for many prizes!
It's probably a good thing I don't know my way to the Casino.
Some days just using the debit card is as close to gambling as I want to get!
