Today, I learned that my "Cash back rewards" for credit card purchases are mailed with the monthly statement. The same monthly statement that goes straight into the shredder or fireplace because I prefer to do my banking online. FML

at least take a look at your stuffs before you throw them away.

My grandma would give you a really good talking to, she keeps all her receipts in her pillow case....

Yeah, you shouldn't throw anything away without checking what it is. It could happen with other more important or valuable stuff and when you realize, they're already gone.

Banks usually are greedy and unless you put the country of Ukraine in your card you probably weren't getting much back. But the economy is shit so that extra pocket cash would have been nice.

I'm from Ukraine. Guess I'm getting a lot back from my banks.

A plastic zip-lock bag wouldn't suffice?

Oh god no, she does things the really old fashion way and if you even question her on her decisions she will most likely throw peaches at you.

Does she have an endless supply of peaches stored away specifically to throw at people who don't go with her decisions?? :O

Yes, she's actually throwing them at me as we speak.

At least the shredder and fireplace got some nice rewards, right? They could use that money to get married and take a nice honeymoon together.

Lesson learned, it was probably a small amount of money anyways. Just go through your mail more thoroughly from now on.

That's what happened to my report cards..."accidentally"...wink wink

My brother and I would team up to destroy our report cards. Even planned out which days we would be sick so we could get to them before my mom

I did that once. Then the ol man outsmarted me and went to the school to get copies.....good times

Me and my brother did that up to 6th grade. Then my mom caught my brother in the act with my report card. Lets say she has good aim and we never did it again.

So you'd rather do the work to avoid your mom finding your report cards rather than just do the work so that you don't have to worry about her finding them? Brilliant.

Is learning THAT terrible and boring for you that you have to do that to keep up an illusion of doing well in school? Good luck getting into a college.

34- your comment should have two thumbs up right now. My hand slipped and instead you have none.. D'oh, Sorry!

I do my banking online too. But you never look at statements? You are 100% sure the credit card bank never makes a mistake? You are 100% sure there are no unauthorized charges? You never keep statements In case you need them later?

This person may be a moron but you can still look at all your transactions online. Your entire statement is available online. You should still open your paper bill in case there are any notices or changes you should be aware of
