Tech Talk / Re: Dropped my phone In water.

Just a note about using rice to dry out a phone.
Those packets of 'desiccant' that keep things dry during shipping work too.  Perhaps even better.  I'm taking about those little packets that come in pocketbooks and shoe boxes, etc.  Don't throw them away. Save them for when something gets wet. The packets can be warmed in an oven (at 150F ?) to get them dried out to work again.
Or you can just microwave it on high with your phone for 60 seconds  ;)

Why are any of them at fault if he gave them both the same number?
Both meaning the OP and the first buyer that acknowledged the credit card change (before he swiped) and still used the incorrect one.

The second buyer that used it right away is definitely at no fault.

My MinchaMinderô system is live!
Now you can put together a full tutorial (hosted on with a Donate button :) ) so others (like @jmz above) can utilize your logics for their Minyanim.

Extra Mitzvos for everybody!!

actually two hours before he made the transaction he told me he wont use that card!
Nowhere in any of your previous posts did you mention he acknowledged your mistake.
so then it is his fault not Amex's
Certainly not Amex.
Iíd go with both are at partial fault and should split the cost.

The dispute is on the basis that I didnít authorize this guy to use that cc

(Im NOT looking to steal here Iím just trying to work something out, if I can, without having to pay the $100)

You said that you did authorize it, you just changed your mind later on (and he may have not seen it in time).

You are the only one at fault here for mixing up your cards..

On weekly-sale this week (ending today) at Empire Kosher for $6.99 (limit 4, with $20 minimum non-sale items). Says regular price $10.99.

I don't feel comfortable with them having my banking login. If they get hacked they can do a lot more damage with that
Another point on these banking accounts, youíre not worried about the points expiring, and youíre likely signing into your account at least once a month (so you know around how many points you have).

Airline and hotel points on the other hand, youíre likely not signing into them nearly as often, so itís more susceptible to expiration.

How do you order from Alibaba? Any way to just checkout like Amazon?
Alibaba is a wholesaler / custom manufacturing experience. You donít just order what they have in stock.

AliExpress is kinda like Amazon.
