Before my mom freaks out, I do not owe anything on this card; I just charge stuff and then pay it back at the end of the month so that I can earn points, but it takes me forEVER to earn anything. And once I do earn a gift certificate, it takes me just as long to decide what to spend it on!
I decided to replace my Roeckl Chester riding gloves with my $30.00 in gift certificates. At $48.99 a pair, they're not exactly cheap which explains why my current pair is very threadbare, holey, and rather faded. With my "discount," I paid a less painful $23.94 (darn shipping!). They're not here yet as I only ordered them earlier in the week, but I am looking forward to using a pair of gloves that don't have holes in the fingers.
The Roeckl Chester Gloves come in some nice color combos; my first pair were all black, and I also have a pair of white ones for showing. This time I ordered the black with brown trim. I know these are on the pricier end of the spectrum, but I can afford it, and I really like them. I think they're worth the money, especially with a gift certificate.
