Thanks, keep ' email coming.

It HAS to be a product that requires overnight shipping so we have the money advantage of making an extra $10 on margins which other companies don't have.

Btw I got the beef jerkeys from aufschnit, am not a fan. It's my first time eating beef Jerky's, so it may be that for a Jerry lover it's good, but i don't like it.

I know what UPS rates are and I know what GOOD UPS rates are, I'm telling you he has better rates than your 100K company had. He ships over $3 million in a year. He pays $3.50 for Ground package across the US, no residential surcharge. Overnight to FL $12 for 1 Lbs. If you know rates, this is AMAZING!!!

A typical average Ground package is around $7-8 and an overnight from NY to FL is around $25-35 and with a GOOD account, it's $20+.

My friend asked me to brain storm an idea of selling a product online which requires only to be put in an envelope and it MUST be shipped overnight. Any idea for a product or service that requires that? I can't think of anything, but i'm sure somebody here will come up with something.

He has EXCELLENT UPS shipping rates, so he wants to use it to his advantage.

Let's brain storm it.....

You don't get national executive status with the CSR. You can use the infinite code for perks when renting, but it doesn't give you status.

-750000. Just go to the benefits page and follow the link.

Just curious on what card are you guys getting the free GE application from? Thanks ..
 Would love to apply for a bunch of family members.

Just an FYI. If you apply for Nexus, Family members under 18 are free + you have the added benefit of Nexus.

1: i need word and excel (mic office) i signed up for the trial. what is the best way to get it permanently on my computer. I have to be able to transfer it to a different laptop as i am not sure i am happy with the laptop that i bought 9 thats why i bought it in costco-i know i only have 90 days)
2: what is a good (pref free) program to teach me how to type properly with using all my 10 fingers

For #1 you can buy on eBay 5 PC keys for pennies. Have very good experience with that UK seller on there, very prompt.

I use my GE card in Nexus land and it works

GE in a US Nexus lane works. Not when entering into Canada.

Good luck, just do not do $10000 in MS.

I do REAL spend, never did MS.

Applied, I hope I get the $1K. Got a 30K credit line. Thanks

I just product changed away from this card. Is this churnable?

While I wholeheartedly agree that having hilchos yichud helps avoid many negative situations there are plenty of men (though it may not seem like it these days)  who don't follow hilchos yichud or halacha and still act with the proper respect and appropriately towards the opposite sex.

Chazal say אין אפוטרופוס לעריות . You can't be smarter than חז"ל, and you know it well being that you are a man. If you want to tell me otherwise, I have a bridge to sell.

Anyone know if toggle mobile works in Austria?

It surely works but there is roaming charges, which come out very expensive when calling US. Local calls and  calls are very low.
