What can you buy with P446,000?
How was your Holy Week? I hope you had the chance to rest and reflect on the blessings you’ve received. Now that everything is back to normal routine, let me start with the question, “What can you buy with PhP446,000? Perhaps a China-made car? A European trip?
Last March 20, my husband received a letter from Citibank, advising him that the credit limit for his Citibank-Shell credit card has been increased to PhP446,000. He laughed out loud when he read the letter and thought that yes, he can probably buy a low-priced car.
This is probably Citibank’s way of rewarding him for charging his purchases to his credit card. Citibank probably thinks that he has the capacity to pay for such a huge amount. After all, he was able to pay off PhP320,000 worth of charges in just one payment!
But before anybody reacts, the PhP320,000 he charged late last year was the hospitalization bills of his mother (God bless her soul). Because his family didn’t want to bring such a huge amount of cash, hubby just volunteered to charge the bills to his card and the payment will just be paid off online.
I wish I could say that we’re both eager to charge a lot of purchases in my husband’s newly granted credit limit. But commonsense tells me to just let the daydreaming pass. Masarap lang mangarap pero hindi masarap magbayad ng utang.
