A few years ago, Brad and I heard about Advanced Formula Ultra Plus Laundry Detergent. It’s a high efficiency detergent, requiring less dosage and less waste to recycle. It has 275 washes for every box. Unfortunately, it also has a steep price tag: $28.61 per box (including tax). We’re glad that it lasts so long!
So when Brad went to purchase a box at Sears last week, the person at the register asked him if he would like to subscribe to a Sears Master Card. We don’t usually use credit cards, but this time Brad made an exception. With the Sears Master Card, the laundry detergent cost only $13.61. We saved $15!
I called Sears a few days later and paid the bill over the phone at no cost. Then I went ahead and cancelled the credit card during the same phone call.
Over my lifetime, I’ve had a number of Sears credit cards that I cancelled immediately after subscribing. I don’t advocate the use of credit cards, but on occasion I have used them for a special deal like this.
Do you use any credit cards for special rewards?
