Paid off my high interest Chase card!

This is how I did it.

Sold items from around the house. $320.
Income from 2nd job. $1708
Rebate from first energy for purchasing a dehumidifier $25
AT&T uverse rebate card for my anniversary $20
Savings from house cleaners $119
Reimbursement from Accumulated money from dependent and health savings accts: $904

So happy to see that 0 balance.

The limit of chase is 7400. My plan was to transfer 7k to my Amex balance of 23k at 15.24%. The offer expires 5/31. Now I don't know. It is so nice to see that 0 balance that I can't believe that it's going to go back to 7k even at 0%. I have 0% until 6/2015.
