The Numbers Are In!

I got a notice today that my reimbursement for my trip to Chicago was going through with the final numbers that I’ll be reimbursed. Recall that I calculated that I would get reimbursed $929. My total expenses for the trip were $768.

WELL… I’m actually getting back:  $1017.75

A near full $100 OVER what I thought I would receive. Lucky me!

I’m getting 267.30 for my car related expenses (I hypothesized it would be $269 – so I was pretty close there!)

I’m getting back exactly what I paid for my hotel ($460.70).

And for my per diem expenses I’m getting $289.75 (a full $90 over my predicted reimbursement of $200).

So I’ve decided that I’m going to do the following with the reimbursement money:

1) Refund my emergency fund, since I paid for the trip with the E-fund

2) Get the oil changed on the car – since it is time (hopefully there will be no other mechanical issues to fix, though you never know)

3) Put the rest on my credit card
