Saturday afternoon I went with a colleague to see The Descendants (we both really liked it) and even brought my own snacks, apple slices, to fend off the temptation of buying treats. I had enough Scene points for a free movie, so there was no cost involved.
Then, I decided that I'd check out Home Sense for a white ceramic vase to replace the one I'd shattered during the move. I had a gift card with what I thought was about $48 on it. Turns out, there wasn't $48, instead there was about $10 left -- I can't for the life of me remember what I'd bought using the card between Christmas and this weekend, but I'm sure I did. So, when the cashier let me know that I still owed about $20 I debated cancelling the order and having her refund the $10 back on the gift card, or paying the $20, knowing that I didn't make it through the entire 7 days.
I paid the $20. I'd have gone back to the store the next day to get the replacement vase anyways, and I was already happy with my 6 entire days....lesson learned: check the balance of your gift card before assuming what's left on it!
