Sooooooooo... my hard drive didn't come. Had to fight with Amazon but I got my expedited next-day shipping costs refunded, but I've got a literally-not-even-screwed-all-the-way-back-together laptop to work with today, and ZERO of my files (i.e. no photos for my blog!).
This Thrifty Thursday post is going to be a tip that not a lot of people know or use...
That's how I found out that all this time, for years, I could have been using Shoprunner for FREE (a service that gives you free 2-day priority delivery and free returns at a lot of various online retailers). It's normally $79 per year, but if you have an American Express card, you get it for free! Some of the retailers I've used this service for so far include Kate Spade, Express, and Neiman Marcus. So it's not like Shoprunner hasn't partnered with some major brands. It's definitely nice to get free priority shipping, without having to meet a minimum purchase amount, or pay extra.
If you've got an AmEx, you might as well go grab your Shoprunner membership. Even if you never use it, it's not like it cost you anything.
