I don't know that I'd want a $1800 + $180 KMart giftcard, but if it was only $300...that might be cool. Yanno?
Menards does that here, and we are doing TONS of remodeling, so it would probably be a good plan, except that I don't think it works for those of us who get direct deposit since we have no paper check to take in.
I had previously posted that this is going to dental/medical, and that is true, but really it is freeing up other money to finish our remodeling. But I swear it's all necessary remodeling, not that we just want granite countertops or SS appliances. We are fixing things that are water damaged and/or just need help. This 30 yo mobile home needed a lot of help.
