…a huge belated birthday splurge.
After four years of pining for an Hermes clic-clac bracelet, I decided that my golden birthday this year (30 on May 30) was a milestone worthy of such an indulgent purchase.
However, this wasn’t a purchase I could make spontaneously. It’s a lot of money to spend on an enamel bracelet no matter how long I’ve coveted one. In January, I started saving any blog income (ahem, affiliate money on my own purchases), eBay earnings and a little bit per paycheck in a Capital One 360 account.
Do any of you use Capital One 360? It’s pretty amazing. Dave introduced me to it when I started saving for this bracelet. You can setup a general savings account or create accounts with savings goals assigned to them (mine are designated for fashion splurges and travel). If you wanted to give it a whirl, you can earn a bonus of $25 if you sign up with my referral link and make an initial deposit of $250. (You don’t need to make minimum deposits moving forward and you don’t need to maintain a minimum balance.) There’s a bigger bonus of $50 for opening up a checking account, but I’m not sure what those details are. Either way, it’s a nice little bonus toward your next splurge. Are you saving up for anything?
