  1. Thanks very much – very helpful! I just wanted to add for people to beware of what kind of ‘bonus’ they are receiving…sometimes there are restrictions/time limits on the ‘bonus’ they offer. Sometimes they are so strict as to narrow it down to just a few days for redemption (like on the ‘rewards’ cards).

  2. Beautiful post! Thank you for the reminders to be patient and exercise self control. Your words are such a blessing!
