The amex wishlist this year is paying off better than it did last year. So far, I've managed to pick up wish certificates from petsmart, walmart, and borders. Connie snagged one from Amazon too which means that I've pretty much covered all the bases as far as those go. The only thing I'm interested in now is trying to pick up multiples of the Amazon cert. It offers 25% off all Amazon purchases until you get a discount of $125. That's pretty spiffy considering the amount of money I've spent there lately. The downside is I've already picked up just about everything I want. Since the start of the month I've bought:

  • A Flip Mino HD to replace the Ultra

  • Around a dozen different DS and PSP games

  • A Canon SD770 IS 10 megapixel digital camera

  • 2 boxes of Toblerones

So what's really left for me to want to buy? In the end, I might just end up using the discount to buy something just to flip it on ebay or something like that. It's not as good as finding something I actually want, but I think I've spent way too much money as it is. I'm usually a pretty thrifty person, only buying things on sale or when I can get a good deal on it. I've had the same digital camera for the past 5 years or more. I'd still be using it today if it weren't for the fact the damn thing's not compatible with vista which means I can't use it with the laptop. Besides, I got a great deal on the replacement since there had been a glitch and I got a 16 gig SD card out of it for free. According to someone's calculation, that means I should be able to take and store 10,000 pictures on the thing. Certainly more storage than I'll ever end up needing.

About the only other thing I might want in the relatively near future would have been an upgraded laptop. There have been some really great deals but the one I'm using is less than a year old and I just put in new ram to boot. It's probably something I'll consider again in a year's time. Till then, I think I'm going to check to see if anyone in the family was planning to make any large purchases and could use some of the wish certificates. I just don't want to see them go to waste.
