$11.50 and now saving $17/month

January 4th, 2013 at 02:46 pm

The $11.50 is the current "rebate" balance on our new Wells Fargo credit card. We only have one other credit card...Capital One of which we have no problems with. When we refinanced last year, Wells Fargo offered up their credit card. They give you 1% on every purchase and after you reach $25, it is credited to the principal balance of your mortgage. Since we don't do credit card rewards, this seemed ideal. We are moving back from Capital One and using the WF card when we charge something....why not, I say? Every bit helps! We are uncertain if we will keep Capital One. We don't carry credit card balance so I am not sure that we need 2. Just don't want our credit scores to take a hit if we cancel...currently we are around 850 for both of us. I wonder how much of a hit we would take? Any thoughts? The only reason I can think to keep it would be that the credit limit is a little over double what the WF card is.

Also, FINALLY getting rid of AOL to the tune of $17 a month...this has been on my list of things to do for far too long....DH finally got on me last night and asked me to switch to either yahoo or gmail. He will then cancel AOL saving us $17 a month. Should have done this sooner as there was really no reason not too other than the fact it seemed too daunting....in the end, it really wasn't. Again...every little bit helps!

    Years ago we tried to get rid of AOL and they were persistent. Hope you can do with little trouble.

    We switched our AOL to free AOL service about two years ago. That way we kept our long standing email addresses. It was easy, just a few clicks online in the account section.

    I had the same experience as rob62521 several years ago when we quit AOL. They were terrible to deal with and it did lead to a huge headache. I hope that there is some insurance that they have changed their tactics in the interim, because I was really unimpressed. Good job on getting out from under that unnecessary expense!
