Using the $20 off $50 Amex Offer you can get some pretty decent deals. One great deal that really stands out is 100 stamps for $49. You can then use a filler like Ketchup or Sriracha to bring you just above $50. Basically getting you 100 stamps for $30. That's far better than any of the DDMS deals of $15 off $75 stamps on ebay.

If you use UXD0N (my referral hopefully Dan will replace with his) you get $10 when you place your first order. I believe the +1 trick still works as well.

Re: FBI Raids Orthodox Homes
Maybe special-needs children (whose families were targeted), incur higher costs because Medicaid pays for their therapy and their aides. Those costs are still high for recipients who have an aide at home 24/7 and multiple therapy sessions a week.
I don't think 70k over 3 years is that high. If you every look at how much a delivery without complications costs before insurance "disallowances" you can be talking in the area of 50k. It's possible that these numbers being thrown around are whole numbers before the traditional 80-95% disallowance on a particular charge. Medical reimbursement is an interesting area where what is billed and what is paid often have no semblance to each other. Not saying these people are innocent, I just think that the numbers being thrown around are pumped up to make their sins look more egregious.

Re: Amex Offers Discussion Thread
Yes boss 🤦‍♂️.

Also, how long after someone posts one is it okay to post it again?
It's a recurring issue on this thread. I posted a year ago how I had some Sam's offers show up on business cards that didn't have them before. Turns out the second round targeted a much larger number of cards. I didn't see any cards targeted with Dunkin but I appreciate the nudge to do a quick check.

Imho if you're a regular poster who's with the program then obviously you know how to use the search function. I hate the bossypantsness of some people here...

Re: Amex Offers Discussion Thread

Typed it in the wrong thread and then deleted it mistakes happen. The key is to acknowledge them (which I did) and rectify it (which I did when I was made aware of it).
 Unlike 99% of idiots who double down on the stupid by continuing discussions in the wrong thread.
Seems to me you're very forgiving of your own mistakes but not anyone else's. Just chill.

Re: PSA: Don't swipe recklessly for others
You missed the point. If they can't cover Januarys high volume then there is a big problem. They are not looking to screw anyone. The question is can they cover unexpected situations. If they front someone 1mm of product and that person goes belly up now what happens?
I had no issues before or afterward and they were proactive with the check. If they went belly up I doubt you'd take a total haircut unless they really were botching things up. But I think you'd have other clues to that well in advance. You can never totally mitigate risk. You do what you are comfortable with.

While the risks might not be clearly defined, there are clearly risks so you work to protect yourself. Most people working a regular job (for example) with clearly defined risks don't protect themselves from a much bigger risk of getting let go or not being paid timely.

Re: PSA: Don't swipe recklessly for others I feel like the key word for this thread is recklessly. I use buying groups and though I would hate to take a total haircut the max I've ever been owed in total was apx 30k. A loss like that would suck but I've paid back more than that in student loans so I know I can dig myself out of that hole and a it wouldn't wreck me. But a 200-300k loss, that would wreck most anyone's finances. It's basically like having your home burn down and you are uninsured.

I think that the BG's and other shtick can be a great way to get extra cash to sock away. Personally I try to max out my Roth IRA's with the extra "income" so I never end up relying on it. That's really a big sticking point in this game. So many people end up relying on the point revenue that once a stream dries they have all sorts of nasty things to say instead of being grateful that they fell into such an easy revenue stream in the first place.

But as many have said there's risk involved. It's very hard to know your risk tolerance. I work for a large fund company and I overhear CSR talking with clients about their risk tolerance on a scale of 1-10. It's laughable when you hear, um I think 8? If you think your risk tolerance is an 8 you should expect to have 50%+ drawdowns perhaps 2-4 times in a 50 year investment plan. If you want to think about risk tolerance 30k = crashing an uninsured brand new car into a brick wall for a total loss. 200-300k = burning down your house without insurance. If you really think about how you would feel if either happened to you, you'd start to have a clearer idea of what your risk tolerance is.

Southwest free flight changes on all flights thru 3/31/19 "Currently, we are offering flexible accommodations through Sunday, March 31. Due to high call volumes and extended hold times, we strongly encourage Customers to cancel, rebook, and check flight status at Customers who are holding reservations may rebook in the original class of service or travel standby (within 14 days of their original date of travel between the original city-pairs and in accordance with our accommodation procedures) without paying any additional charge."

Bad advice.

I booked a random flight DEN to LAS. I got the below message:

You may change your trip date/time at no additional cost if you stay inside the restrictions below.
Departure airport must be: Denver, CO - DEN
Arrival airport must be: Las Vegas, NV - LAS
Travel dates are between: 3/17/2019 to 4/14/2019
Note: Changes made outside the conditions listed above will not be protected under our established reaccommodation practices and may result in a higher fare.

Re: PSA: Don't swipe recklessly for others
Thanks for the link.

It's too bad this wasn't a panel discussion. I certainly could have helped clarify some of the mileage situations and assumptions discussed in the final hour that may have changed the answers given by the Rabonim.

Clearly he wanted to argue about selling points with me, but it wasn't an argument I wanted to enter, nor was it one that I had to enter as I've never advocated selling points.
I thought you did a good job. I don't know why he felt the need to spin this about the flights. Totally irrelevant. He's also a bit of an interrupting cow. Really trying to push his agenda.

Re: Iran's Top Terrorist Taken Out By The U.S. Here is my 2 cents just cause I'm bored and I really should stop fighting with Persians on Twitter (maybe they'll hack me next). It's mostly rambling though....

I think @BP16 is spot on. I think that despite the media portraying Trump to be a warmonger he's been very cautious about ratcheting up the violence. But since he has a reputation for being unhinged Iran is also pretty nervous about how far they can go before all hell breaks loose. To @Dan point there is clearly no war yet and it looks like smarter heads in Iran might not want a war.

But there is also the chance that hot heads in Iran like those in the Quds (Jerusalem / Holy) force trying to start the Shiite (twelver) version of Armageddon. I think that's why taking out Soleimani was so important. Aside from what was very likely a threat to American troops (how imminent is yet tbd) it's pretty clear that for the past decade plus he's been at the helm moving all sort of pieces in place for an Armageddon push to topple the zionist regime so to speak.

I really don't like describing secular things biblically but with Iran it really seems there is a biblical aspect to what they do. I know very little about Islam and even less about Shia but it seems they have messianic beliefs (Mahdi) very similar to Judaism. And just like there's a bunch of evangelicals down in Texas that support Israel out of some sort of religious drive it seems the same is true with some Shi'ites in Iran. I bring this up because there are plenty of curveballs that could be thrown right now from various militia groups to nasrallah to some quds generals looking to set a name (or bring along the Mahdi). So I would not rule out a hot direct conflict with Iran. They have a tendency to blow up Israeli embassies (or tour buses) which can suck everyone back in pretty quickly.

I do think there will be a pause right now (from Iran not necessarily militias) if for no other reason than the downing of the Ukrainian jet. Cooler heads in Iran need to figure out a way to blame this on someone fast or risk losing whatever international support they have left. I hope the pause lasts a while. (I kind of feel bad for the soldier that shot the missile thinking he was a hero for downing an American aircraft and he and his family might likely have already been executed soviet style???)

For the longest time I've considered someone like Zarif in Iran to be a lying snake I also think that he's a moderate force who might actually be needed by the US if we were to try another regime change. I think Zarif and many others might actually be relieved that Soleimani is gone in a KGB sort of way where you can't express relief for fear of reprisal but boy do you feel it. He likely has eyes on Rouhani's seat which should be available to him next year. If someone like Biden wins the election next year and assuming we're not in a full out war I can see Zarif and Biden being in a position to redraw a nuclear agreement (which would likely be the same mess as under Obama but maybe not).

But Trump is a wild card and I think that regardless of what the media is saying, this is really helping him out politically. Also, North Korea never gave their "christmas present" which makes me think they're pretty nervous and want to finalize something too. If he gets some sort of real treaty out of North Korea I don't see how he could possibly lose the election.

So to end my rambling I really hope there won't be a war but I think it's way to early to write it off. If this becomes protracted I see this also helping get Trump reelected but if that's the case then I think the next Iranian president will tilt more Ahmadinejad and less Rouhani which could make this conflict get really really hot.

Re: Iran's Top Terrorist Taken Out By The U.S.
I really find it odd so many here believe killing this terrorist will save lives. Like the guy who took his place isn't just as bad or worse. Or the orders don't come from the top. Was this guy some great master mind that was irreplaceable?
Of course it will. Soleimani had a very strong handle on numerous militias. The next guy will at the very least have to do a lot of leg work to build trust across numerous factions who, in other circumstances, would be enemies. And that's assuming that the Quds have a smooth transition and there isn't any internal vying for power.

Re: Iran's Top Terrorist Taken Out By The U.S.
Not cancel the Iran deal. Now they will try harder than ever to get the bomb.
They were going for the bomb regardless. The deal gave Iran a ton of breathing room to let soleimani build militias and support throughout the middle east and beyond. If Iran got a bomb without having a strong network it would be much more susceptible to say an airstrike or similar campaign. It's actually kind of neat how Iran has so many proxies it can use to carry out mischief to distract the world.
