Hi y’all! I’m kind of on unexpected hiatus; I’m not on vacation exactly, but working remotely for a couple of weeks so that I can help take care of my goddaughter during a really busy period for her parents. It’s great, but man, I don’t know how you people with kids do it! She’s such a constant bundle of energy that when she goes to bed, I can’t do much more than the dishes and collapsing into bed myself.
Anyway, apparently I am not going to have the wherewithal to post regularly for a little while 🙂 But I did want to quickly share that I’m side hustling this month by opening a new bank account and depositing $5000 into it. I’ve gotten bank account bonuses before, but usually not for this much. The cool thing about this is that I couldn’t have gotten the full bonus without the $5000, and I don’t think there was ever a time in my life when I had $5000 in savings to send somewhere! Even for this I had to combine all my savings accounts since my emergency fund won’t be full for another few months.
I’m trying to decide if this should be a one-time deal, or if I should do this regularly. I have no problem with taking bonus money for an account I’m actually going to use, but I’d feel weird about taking it if my plan is just to close it as soon as I’m allowed to. Maybe not though if I had my $5000 deposited for a while so I knew the bank was using it? Has anyone else done this as kind of a regular side hustle, the way people cycle credit cards for the intro bonus?
Exhaustedly yours, C
