Good morning everyone, I hope you had a good weekend. I started sharing my thoughts regarding working from home in a series of Work from Home Diary posts. Feel free to share your work from home feelings in the comments section below. For today’s update, I wanted to share my weekend activities. Before I continue, what does yard work and Hallmark movies have to do with miles and points? That’s a great question, read on to find out.
On Saturday morning, Laura and I went to Lowe’s to get some cleaning supplies, trash bags, and Amazon GCs. When we arrived, we saw a deal on colored bark (4 bags for $10) and purchased 8 bags. We had ambitious plans to clean up our front and back yard and to put out a new layer of bark. After several hours of work, our front and back yard looked great. Even though our muscles were sore, using the Lowe’s AMEX Offer on my American Express Blue Business Plus Credit Card to get 10% cash back on the Lowe’s purchases was a nice relief. The Lowe’s AMEX Offer is cumulative and pays 10% cash back, up to $100 cash back (so spending $1,000 will max out this offer). This AMEX Offer expires on June 30, 2020, but I expect another Lowe’s AMEX Offer will show up after July 1.
