Navient aka Sallie Mae Just Paid Me!

In this post I wrote about paying off the last of my student loans, and how completely excited I am to move on to a new chapter of my financial life. 

I also mentioned how I overpaid by a few cents, just to be sure I paid in full. I wondered if they would send me a refund check and said I would post if they did.

Well, even better… For years I used a Upromise credit card. The benefits were linked to my student loan bill and paid cash automatically to my loan every month. They made a payment I was unaware of, so I received $11.70! I was so excited when I saw I had mail from them. The feeling of them owing me money is pretty epic! I put it in my savings account. Obviously it’s a small amount, but every little bit matters. 

In this, it’s really just the principle. 🙂

  2. Wow! I can’t believe they repaid you so fast, that is epic in itself. You’re so responsible. I would have run to my nearest Mexican happy hour, ordered myself a margarita and had chips and salsa and yelled to anyone who would listen that this meal’s on the government… lol!

  6. My husband just got a check in the mail from Navient as well. We were skeptical about whether or not it’s legit. Any issues with this check? Was it actually valid?
