Timing

Good timing, for once.

My discount broker, TD Ameritrade, has periodic offers for people who add new assets either to their existing account or to a new one. Most of these promotions are not all that attractive to me, and I'm not often going to be moving money or stock around, anyway. Then came an email in February: move in assets, and get Apple or iTunes gift cards (three different levels, depending on the size of your deposit) or an iMac or Mac Book Pro if you move even more. *Apple fangirl squee* And the other bit of timing? We're moving money around as we work on settling my father's estate.

So: younger brother and I each qualified for the maximum amount of gift cards (I'm thinking iPad for mine), and the estate account got a free computer.

The Apple promotion ended March 31, and Tuesday I got an email for their new offer: golf clubs. I'm sure they are very nice golf clubs, but I haven't played golf since summer camp, ca. 1967.

I hope the estate chose the iMac. They're NICE.

An iMac (27") will be procured, if not 2. I was about to replace my "lamp" iMac anyway, and have been drooling over the 27" iMacs not that the display problems seem to be solved. My brother's household, always a Windows shop until elder niece got a MacBook Pro recently, will get *something* with the estate's credit chit, and we'll equalize the money later. The debate of desktop vs. laptop for their household was still ongoing last I heard...

Wow. Now that's a promotional deal I could get behind. Good for you!
