Credit Cards / Re: Applying for mortgage
« on: May 18, 2018, 09:21:23 AM »
How does opening up business credit cards impact mortgage application assuming they are within the same month (or 2)?

Pulls are recorded which may raise questions by some underwriters, but they will certainly affect score, though how much would depend on credit profile.

Delivered? To Conrad MLE?

lol... no.

You have to bring them. Though I suppose if you had the type unlimited funds required to have POM delivered to MLE, you can just bring your own chef.

I realised that for some, it is a source of much needed secondary income. Rather than a game or such.

I do realize that, done right it represents a few hundred extra dollars a week, which can be crucial or at least helpful.

Sometimes I parlay my personal experience with things into the big picture, not because I think the world evolves around me, I just forget that each person is different.

For me, churning is often a distraction from my day job and inherently a waste of time.

Not to be difficult, but your main argument--i.e. that these people are wasting their time with buying groups because they could be, in your opinion, "doing something more productive or more effective or more [insert whatever]"--has not been addressed.

Why do you no longer think that?

Great math, flawed logic.

Few deals are 5k swipe in 10 min, nevermind the time wasted on cancelled orders etc.

This does not change the fact that it diminishes your capacity to become an adam gadol.. you will remain an adam katan.

I rather look at it as a nice easy way to get free points were relevant and i'll do as a favor to friend and family.

You could easily make $210 or $500 an hour if you actualize your potential in life.

Oh, I see now. You're willing to remain an adam katan, just as long as the reward is worth it.

I have a full-time job which keeps me pretty preoccupied (and I think most would agree I haven't squandered my time getting where I am), but I'm able to do this on the side where and make thousands per month for a couple hours per week.

Maybe that's chump change to you, maybe that few hours is keeping me from becoming an adam gadol, and/or maybe I'm just better at it than you.

Not sure I'd agree with any of those.

I know how much I make in my full time job and I assume the owner is making way more. What's it point?

This.

Anyone who is not Bezos makes less than the other guy.

You work in a company, your boss makes more than you. You own your own company? Your clients make more than you.  In both case, by your definition, you are someone's b**ch.

Would getting the Chase Marriott 100K X4 = 400K get me to the SR BOB for a few nights? just called SPG they want 95K per night for the BOB SR and book 4 nights get the 5th night free.

Or what is a good strategy to get a points property in  BOB? intercontinental is not easy
Ha, you'd barely get 1 night for 400K.

95K SPG = 285K MT

Anyone have experience smuggling wine into the maldives.

...and in other news, a man frequenting the online deals site, DansDeals.com, got arrested today for breaking one of the Maldives only three customs rules.

Family members are worried and do not know when or even if he will be afforded access to an attorney.  When asked, friends expressed both concern for his welfare and incredulousness. "Listen, I like wine as much as the next guy, but it simply boggles the mind why he would he try to smuggle contraband into a foreign country. I wish him the best and hope he doesn't spend the rest of his life in prison. I just hope it wasn't Manischewitz," said Baruch from Boropark. 

Yehudah from Monsey worried, "can you imagine the shame his family is going through right now? Forget the white table cloth on shabbas issue, can you just imagine what the shadchanim will think, 'so his father went to jail in a Muslim country, huh? I wonder what else he might have done while there...'"

No comment from the Maldivian government was forthcoming at press time.

And that's all for the top of the hour. Joanne, back to you.

If someone moves 100k per year a more, wont it trigger an audit from the irs, being that he is receiveing more than 100k a year from a certain corporation?
If that's the barometer to get audited, then half of DDF would have been audited already...
