Okay, so I missed paying off the Sears bill. I mean, I was IN Sears on Thursday, the day it was due, but I forgot. Blech.

So I called, on my way down to Atlanta, the next day. They couldn't accept payment by phone, as it wasn't delinquent. I asked them to put a note in my account that I would be paying it the next day. Then Ro and I went out of our way to find a Sears on Saturday, and got to Artlite 3 minutes before closing. But, I made the payment. Two days late. And bonus, I knew why I wanted to be at Artlite, so 3 minutes was actually enough time to shop. I just would have preferred more browsing time.

Totally no surprise to me, when the next statement, which came yesterday, didn't reflect the payment, and showed a $35 late fee, plus $26 finance charges.

Amazing surprise when I called to find out the new payoff amount.

The computer told me I had a zero balance.

They forgave the late fee and reversed the interest charges before I even called about it. I even checked with a human to verify that that was indeed what had happened.

And, I'd thought Sears was notoriously hard-nosed about credit.

W00t!

One credit card down.

Many to go.

Thanks. It's so encouraging to finally be at this point again, where we're paying off debt, rather than accumulating it.
