2010 quickies

January 5th, 2010 at 06:51 am

* Anybody got their PerkStreet bonus money yet? I haven't. The first one is suppose to be that $5 for making a credit card purchase. Maybe it's a lump sum thing they deposit at the end of the month? I should've kept the email. Frown

* I'm basically loaded and ready to do some more trading this year, but I haven't made a move yet. The year is still young, and if there's one thing I've learned about trading, it is that one should never be in too much of a hurry to lose money. Big Grin

Actually, I'm just wondering if I will even be able to do this once my job is over. My current job is pretty sweet. I get to sit down and actually do all this part-time trading while I'm at work. Will I be able to do this on my next job? Will I even have internet access or get to sit down?

If so, I'll probably continue to trade, but if not, I'm seriously considering just plopping down with Vanguard and go completely passive.

* I admit I'm in a bit of a funk about my job situation. But then, I would read about all the troubles other people are having, and you know what? I can't complain. My life isn't so bad! At least my problems are strictly financial, and it's not like I'm even in a bad financial shape really.

* Saw UP last night. Wow, that was a bitter sweet movie. The bonus short feature was hilarious, and fleshes out what happened to the dogs in the beginning.

* Last but not least, here's today's moment of zen.

    (2) Make your first direct deposit before 2/15/2010. After three consecutive months of direct deposits totaling $1,000 or more each month, we'll add $100 cash back to your perks balance. We promise it won't take us longer than four weeks after the end of your third month to credit your perks.

    Hey, thank you for posting that! Ok, it's been about a week now, so I'll wait a few more and see what happens.

    My name is Laurie McLachlan and I work for PerkStreet.

    We try to credit your $5 cash back bonus to your perks account as quickly as we can though it could take up to four weeks.

    I'm glad that you decided to open an account. If you have any questions about your bonus, you can always call us anytime at 866.792.2834.

  5. Broken Arrow Says:

    Wow, thank you for responding Laurie! No, I still haven't gotten anything yet, but it's been two and half weeks so far, so I'm not sweating it. If it doesn't show up by Feb 1st, I'll give you guys a call.

    But if you are still reading this, do you know if these perks are maybe totaled and dispersed monthly? Is that why it could take up to a 4 weeks?
