1. I got a CLEP exam refund
After several days of burying my nose in college algebra CLEP test prep, I emailed the nursing program coordinator to ask a question and YOU GUYS!!
I found out that I don’t actually need the college algebra credit after all. (!!!!!)
My advisor gave me the wrong info; the new policy goes into effect for the nursing class that starts the semester after I want to start.
You know how I almost cried when my advisor originally told me I’d need to take college algebra?
Well, I nearly cried tears of joy when I read the email saying I didn’t need to take it. That was such a huge weight off of my shoulders.
I’d been working so hard at prepping, and I was feeling pretty overwhelmed because the official practice test had a lot of stuff I’d never seen in my life before!
And now I am deliciously, wonderfully free. I never have to know how to solve things like this:
Anyway. I had already purchased the CLEP voucher, but happily, you can get a refund if you ask for it within 7 days. Whew!
(Although honestly, I wouldn’t even have stressed about the $90 because I was just so freaking happy that I didn’t need to take the test.)
2. I submitted therapy receipts to insurance
If a therapist is in-network, the practice usually submits the paperwork. But when you see someone out-of-network, you usually have to submit those receipts yourself.
Years ago, it was a pretty annoying process, involving actual paper mail. These days, though, it’s pretty quick and easy because it can all be done online.
Still, sometimes I put it off! But this week I logged on and got the receipts submitted.
3. I submitted for a covid test reimbursement
I have a stash of tests here, but Lisey needed to buy a covid test when she wasn’t near home. So, I submitted her receipt for reimbursement.
4. I got a free propane tank
I used to order my propane refills from Propane Taxi, and they had a referral program where you could get credits for sharing your link with other new customers.
I think I shared it on Twitter years ago, so I had some credits in my account when Propane Taxi changed over to being branded as Cynch. Luckily, the credits transferred, even though the referral program is totally different now.
So, I used the credits to order a propane tank for $0 out of pocket. Yay!
(The referral program has changed, but you can still get $10 off your first order if you click on my referral link. Cynch will accept your current standard-size grill propane tank for exchange; no need to order one from them unless, like me, you actually do need a tank!)
