This morning, I was checking my Gold Box on Amazon like I do every morning, looking for the 5% off deal of my dreams, when I saw a flashing banner telling me I could spend my Discover Rewards points on Amazon. Since I always forget said points exist, I went ahead and linked my account.
Imagine my surprise when I suddenly had nearly $200 to spend on Amazon.
With almost 200 bucks to spend, I could buy most of the Christmas presents I'm responsible for and still have money left over. Or I could go hog wild and buy a few books with this sudden windfall to reward myself for NaNoWriMo and put the rest toward Christmas gifts.
I went with the second option, of course. Although my definition of "a few" turned out to mean nine.
At least the money I spend on Christmas presents will go toward my reward points and thus continue to fuel my addiction.
