Last week my son brought over a form from the “Great Iowa Treasure Hunt.” Any money that is not claimed for a certain number of years is turned over to the Iowa Treasurer. They post a list of names of those who have money owed to them.

My son typed in my name as a joke and was surprised to find my name was on the list. It turns out, I had never collected the money from Upromise that I earned by turning in codes from McDonald’s gift certificates.

I had it on my list to do, but it was not a high priority because we did not eat out often. It was less than 20.00 and I was impressed that Upromise didn’t just keep it!
