December 29, 2011 Mobile Deposits

I recently discovered something VERY awesome about having a Chase account.  No longer will I need to go to the bank or an ATM to make a check deposit.  All I need now is my smart phone! That's right, if someone writes me a check, all I have to do is take a photo of the front and back of the check and it will be deposited instantly into my checking or savings account.

If you have an android phone or iPhone, you can download the Chase bank app.  Then, go to menu and choose "Deposits".  Select your account you want it deposited to, the dollar amount, and then take a photo of the front and the back of the check.  You'll receive an email shortly after letting you know that you made the request, and then another letting you know that it was accepted.

I don't know about you, but I think this is such an amazing time and hassle saver. Definitely a good reason to switch to Chase. Sale

I thought I'd share this great deal if you need to stock up on drugstore products.

Let me break it down for you:

  • 4 shower creams @ $3 each
  • 2 body creams @ $3 each
  • 3 hand soaps @ $2.75 each
  • 2 mini candles + candle holders @ $2.00 each
  • 1 scentportable @ $5 (not on sale)

That comes out to $39.25 BEFORE my coupon.  Then, I used my $10 off a $40 purchase (the lady let me do this with a little less than $40).

How did I get $10 off a $40 purchase?  Just print it by clicking on this link.

If you don't feel like going to the store, there's a sale online too.  If you go through, you can get 6% cash back.  Then, go here to get to the sale.  Make sure to use code 10WINTER11 to get $10 off a $30 purchase, or GIFT20 for 20% off.

Amazing ModCloth Deal!

ModCloth is one of my favorite online stores, with cute dresses, shoes, accessories, etc.  I just recently got 2 cute dresses from here, so I can definitely say I love this store.  It's hard to ever find stuff on sale here, so this is a real treat!

Right now, they have a lot of adorable stuff on sale here.  To sweeten the deal, they are offering 25% off all sale merch with code SALEAWAY.  Now for the best party: ShopAtHome is offering 10% cash back on all ModCloth purchases.  I highly urge you to sign up for ShopAtHome.  It's a great way to get cash back on almost any online purchase.  I've already gotten over $13 back from just 2 purchases (Old Navy and ModCloth).

Check out this deal scenario:

This qualifies for free 3-6 day shipping, AND I'd be getting $7.49 BACK from ShopAtHome!  So, you're only really paying $67.50 for a really nice jacket and a dress, worth about $100.  Great Deal!

SmartyPig No More!

For a long time I have been singing SmartyPig's praises because of their adorable website, user-friendly-ness, and best of all, high interest rates.  For a while it was over 2%! A few months ago, they lowered their rate to about 1.7%.  Then, 1.1%.  I was still a loyal SmartyPigger.  Now, they just decreased their rate to 0.7%! Can you believe that?  They're not even competitive anymore.  As soon as I was able to, I closed my goal and sent the money back to my checking account.

Here is a link to the blog post that SP posted about their interest rate decrease:

If you are/were a SmartyPig customer, feel free to comment with your opinions.
