Baby (sized) Expenditures

April 29, 2008

Continuing the spending trend, I ordered a universal car charger for my phone from Meritline yesterday using the coupon code: NSUCT4OFF.

Originally priced at $6.99 with the $4 off, it came to $3.24, and I’ll get 1% Fatcash and 2% Citi TY points on the transaction. I went with the cheaper universal charger even though it requires me to supply the data cable connection to the phone because the more convenient charger was $11.

I wish I had waited, though, because that one went on sale today for $10.99 with a 60% off. All of 40 cents more, but I would only have to carry the single charger, and not the charger plus the data cable. Hrm. Should I exchange it?

Oh well. I’m not willing to pay more [postage plus restocking fee (15%) plus difference in price] for convenience.

On a happier note, I bought myself a lovely treat at Trader Joe’s last night. In addition to the usual half gallon of milk and a dozen eggs ($1.99, $1.49), I picked up a package of sweet pork italian sausage and a package of fresh pesto tortellini ($2.99, $1.99) to make sausage and onion pasta for my lunch tomorrow. The fresh, refrigerated pastas are a bit pricey, but it’s still cheaper than the sausage and pepper pasta I was craving from Macaroni Grill ($11?). I’ll let you know how it turns out!
