The company I work for has the option to "cash out" some of your PTO and receive the money as a type of extra bonus instead of taking the time off.
The two conditions are
#1) You can only cash out your PTO twice per year.
#2) You must leave at least 40 hours in your PTO bank.
I had 140 hours in my PTO bank and received a check for 100 hours of extra pay.
I will be applying this roughly $2,500 to my American Express card reducing the $5,100 total balance to around $2,600 dollars or so.
This will make a big dent in my debt pay off.....
I have a plan in place to pay off the remaining $2600 possibly this month, but I want to make sure it goes through so stay tuned.
