The Cougar Den will close on December 17th at 3pm and any remaining Cougar Cash in student’s accounts will be gone.
If your account hasn’t already been depleted, you should spend it soon. If you don’t, you may find yourself forgetting about your Cougar Cash till after the semester is over. All that cash will be a missed opportunity.
Last year, I became overworked with my exams and essays, and I didn’t think about my cougar cash. I had stocked up on pop and ice cream in previous years, but I missed my chance that year. I had let about 20 dollars vanish with no treats. This year I am determined to not let that happen again.
If you don’t know what to do with Cougar Cash, here are some ideas:
- Christmas Presents: I have brought candy for my family as an extra Christmas present. You can turn treats and drinks into nice gifts.
- Give it to a Friend: If you don’t want anything, maybe your friends will. Making someone else happy can be rewarding.
- Buy and Save: You may not want anything now, but later in the month, you may crave some ice cream, candy, or nuts. You would be thankful that you had some saved.
- Bake: You can buy certain types of candy and bake them into other foods like cakes and shakes.
There is a lot you can do with your Cougar Cash so don’t let the opportunity go. Also, make sure to purchase the food soon. As the end of the semester approaches, many items will go out of stock.
What do you do with your Cougar Cash at the end of the semester?
