Ahhh, my favorite kind of money. Last week I filled out an online health assessment to get $65 from my employer. Then I joined an online stress-reduction program to get an additional $65 from my employer. I tell you what, if the wellness programs themselves do not contribute to my wellness, the sweet $130 most definitely will.
Then I was just now filling out a class-action claim that I have been carrying around in my purse for about three months, and it appears I will be getting $25. It's some antitrust lawsuit revolving around credit cards and foreign ATM charges, and since I used my card in England in 2005 (this last trip was too late), I am part of the class. I sincerely doubt that I racked up even $10 in fees, so I count this as pure profit, my friend.
Also, if you or anyone you know bought diamond jewelry between 1994 and March 2006, you can be part of the class-action lawsuit against DeBeers--as long as you bought your diamonds from somewhere other than DeBeers. You can get up to $640 back, so anyone who dropped a big wad of cash on say an engagement ring or a pimp cup would be wise to visit the website and get to filing. The tip-off came from WiseBread, which has more info about the lawsuit. As for me, I never fell for the right-hand ring campaign, so I don't qualify--but it turns out that the mastermind behind that load of shite was DeBeers anyway.
