Finding $500 Money Challenge

Every once in awhile it is a good idea to look for money. Here are my first suggestions:
1-have coin counted at the bank and deposited.
2-check to find unclaimed property
3-returns - Home Depot and other retailers
4-review credit card statements for automatic transactions that you don't use anymore ie dietary supplements,
5-review suppliers ie cell phone, internet, cable
6-checking out type - check with banker to see if you are in the right account
7-if you have paid off a vehicle recently, check that gap insurance is refunded.
8-if you have refinanced recently, check that you received your escrow check refund from previous lender
9-check with lender to see if you can refinance and save $150+/month
10-do you qualify for real estate tax freeze (seniors)
