The topic: It’s been a while since I really wanted something

----------------------------------------------

And I really want the new Silhouette Cameo 3. I skipped the 2 because it wasn't new and fabulous enough, but the 3 has dual blade holders and blue tooth and an LED screen and an autoblade (that automatically adjusts to the paper) and storage. And that's plenty reason for me to want to upgrade.

I ordered a bundle on Amazon, the bundle has extra blades and mats. There were more bundles, but I don't need the sketch pens (just got some a few weeks ago), absolutely do not need vinyl (I have a huge storage container in the garage full of different flavors of vinyl), not interested in the silk screening (I print transfers and have a heat press). This was the only bundle that had items I didn't already have as well as items I do buy. I put my order in only to realilze that it wasn't shipping until the end of the month. And then I had an epiphany.  Amazon promo codes!

I checked my MyPoints balance, I'm -->this close<--- to a $25 card. Then I remembered our BankAmericard has rewards, maybe one of them is Amazon. And it was! Enough points there for a $50 Amazon card. I ordered that and took a survey over on MyPoints that put my balance over the needed amount. What, wait? I have to wait a week for them to show? Well, crap.

I went over to Amazon to cancel the order. I can't. It's processing. How can it process when it's not even available for shipping? I contact the seller and the order was cancelled. Now there's not so much pressure about payment. Saving seventy-five bucks is nothing to laugh at.

What's really cool is a few years back I went ahead and purchased the business edition of the Silhouette software. I still have my first machine, the one that did 8.5" wide paper and with the business edition, more than one Silhouette machine can be used at a time. I never made much use of it, but I sure will with two Cameos. It should cut my time down immensely.

I'm so stoked!
