We recently enjoyed five glorious days in sunny Florida, which was such a nice escape from the cold weather in New York.
We stayed at a luxury resort with five pools, a lazy river, arcades, kids programs, and more. I found an amazing deal online for the flight and hotel stay, so we just up and went!
Lucky for us, we have a small airport 20 minutes away from us in Westchester and can just board a plane and get to Florida in three hours — we don’t have to bother with the traffic and large airports in New York.
Landon and I rented kayaks, we rode a jet ski, we played shuffleboard and mini golf several times, Landon used the pools and huge water slide every day — it was a blur of one fun thing after another. And the weather couldn’t have been nicer.
We even got to spend a day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Once we got back home, it was time to stock up and refill the fridge after our trip.
I used a new debit card for the first time during my run to Target: have you heard of the Green Dot 5% Cash Back Visa Debit Card yet?
If you are looking for a smart bank account that rewards its cardholders with cash back, this might be just the card for you!
Traditional banks often have unfair fees or inconvenient hours, and you have a better alternative now!
The Green Dot 5% Cash-Back Visa Debit Card is the smart bank account with no overdraft fees or bounced check fees.
I used the card to pay for my groceries, because I earn 5% cash back on purchases just by using the card!
You know me — I’m super frugal and I’m always looking for new opportunities to save money. To get money back when I use this card is one more way to free up funds for other things that are important to me, like buying organic food or having extra money for fun trips like flying to Florida.
Green Dot is a super easy bank account to get and use, and I like that there is no credit check to get the card.
I’m very protective of my credit score and avoid credit inquiries, which goes down every time you have someone run a hard inquiry for credit cards and car loans, etc. That doesn’t happen with this card.
You can use their mobile app to manage your money, pay all your bills, deposit checks, and send money to friends and family.
If you need your paycheck faster: get paid up to two days earlier with ASAP Direct Deposit, and receive government benefits up to four days before benefits day*.
Find it at 100,000 locations nationwide and online at GreenDot.com. I bet you can always find it where you already shop; no extra trip needed.
This debit card might be a great option for you! I enjoy having it.
What will you do with the money you’ll save? I’m already dreaming about and saving up for our next trip.
Earn up to $100 cash back each reward year.
