#MileMadness Day 2: OfficeMax Clusterf***
Enough said really. How f**ing hard can it be to have a promo that works the way it’s supposed to? Fortunately we are not tracking gas as I must have spent a fortune driving across town. More importantly I wasted hours of time. This aim to create efficiency, diversity and originality is a PIA. I am sorely tempted to just do $5k with my Citi 5x at CVS every single day from here on in….
In the end did $1k at my grocer again (super efficient as I was able to unload in store via money order and deposit at the in branch bank ATM), then did $2k of $200’s at Staples which I’m unloading through Evolve, and $2k more at CVS with Vanilla’s. My regular cashier asked “you’re not doing 10 today?”. Sums it up really. Went to Walmart too to unload some other GC’s I have (hey I don’t have to limit myself to $5k!) and couldn’t resist some MO’s either. I need to work on my totals as I went over my bankroll so I will have to factor down my amounts to account for that, but all told think I earned about $240-250 on the FMV basis.
From here on in I think the focus will be to simplify and focus on 1-2 strategies per day. No accounting for OfficeMax type situations though…
