Re: Best way to transfer money to a kid in Israel without sending cash? Ideas?
What's the best way to send money to a child in Israel? I don't want her to worry about large amounts of cash and sending with family and friends puts a burden on them.  Cash advances on credit cards are pricey.  Ditto with wire transfers.  We are looking at amounts totalling about $2000 a month.  Your advice would be appreciated.
the easiest way is to put in the money in a reb meir bal hanes pushka @ home and your son should take it out of a pushka there ;)

Re: Selling on Amazon Master Thread
He's talking about a listing where he's already at the top, he should be getting significant sales without resorting to tricks. In regards to new listings, I'm not saying I don't understand why sellers do it, it's very obvious why - they want to take a shortcut to success. I'm simply saying that a) it's dishonest and b) these types of shortcuts don't usually lead to long term success and c) if they do have success, they also have much more risk if/when Amazon decides to crack down on them. Even if they decide to stop doing it at a certain point.
Correct if you have the top page etc.. no need for any potential headaches, and amazon really went after the sellers that had 100's of fake reviews from companies that sold fake reviews (similar to buying likes or followers on insta) someone that just gets a few fake ones its not what they are after.
you all got a good point and you are all right
i am not getting 100's of paid reviews i just got 2-3 of them and not planing to do more of this, i did it because i saw my competitors more down the page with more reviews got some more sales then me so i just wanted some kind of a boost, but over all you are right and it doesn't pay the risk to get full of fake reviews.

Re: RIP/BDE Master Thread
It’s so sad.

I have seen recommendations to leave something on the baby that you wouldn’t leave the car without, for instance a shoe/phone/purse etc.
This is ironic that your phone you won't forget but your little one you could forget!!

Other idea I heard of to put a pacifier on your keychain (won't work for Dan) so when you turn off you car you'll remind yourself of your tzadikel/tz'deikisel

Re: Riddles! 1.   Which word would you use if you needed to describe a person who doesn’t have all their fingers on one hand?

2.   If a plane crashes right on the border between Canada and the United States, where should they bury the survivors?

3.   Imagine you are walking now in to a dark room and you see there an oil lamp a newspaper and some kindling wood, but you only have one match! What will you light first?

4.   One day a man got caught in the pouring rain, unfortunately he did not have an umbrella, hat or anything he could use to stay dry, but not a single hair on his head got wet! How so?

5.   How can it be that every single person in a plane crash died, but two people survived?

6.   What do you sleep on, sit on and brush your teeth with?

7.   In some months there are 31 days, in others there are 30, how many months have 28 days?

8.   A man dressed in all black from head to toe was walking in the middle of the road, all of a sudden, a huge black car with its headlights off came around the corner and screeched to halt not to hit him, how did the driver of the car see the man in black?

9.   There was 3 highly important rooms in the house of a highly important man, 1) filled with valuable top secret documents, 2) full of money, 3) full of expensive jewelry. But one day the house went up in flames and all the 3 rooms were catching fire, which of the rooms did the police start to extinguish the first and foremost?

10.   What’s the biggest problem with snow boots?

Re: CHASE closed ALL accounts!!!!!!!
I just wanted you to be aware of something crazy. I have 5 Chase accounts (Presidential Plus, Marriott, Saphire, IHG and BA). Today I went to the gas station to fill up my car and my card was declined. I tried another card and it was declined again. I went home and called Chase to find out why. It turns out they closed all my accounts yesterday. I asked them why? I am a lawyer/cpa with a credit rating of approximately 835. It made no sense. The representative said because on review Chase felt that the current monthly charges were much higher than usual and when they close one account, they close all. On my Saphire account ending 3743, I have a $25,000 credit limit. I wanted to buy gold coins, 3 transaction each for $13,000, a total of $39,000. Since I have a $25,000 credit limit, I knew it wouldn't work. So, I previously mailed Chase a check of $50,000. After the check had cleared my bank, I now had a $50,000 on my Chase account. When I made the first $13,000 transaction, I received a fraud alert to which I replied that it was me making the purchase. At the end of the day, I bought $39,000 of gold leaving a credit balance of $11,000. The following week or two, I charged an additional $3,000. Total, I have a credit balance of nearly $8,000. Chase owes ME money. I don't owe them. I have a credit balances on 3 of the other 4 accounts. My Presidential Plus card has a balance of $44 but its not due as my last stmt had a zero balance. Supervisor is supposed to call me but I am very very upset. This will kill my credit rating and I will have to change c/c for my phone, etc.

Any suggestions?
always have accounts with more then one bank!! specially if you use chase, i use chase but have accounts by apple bank, capitol one.

Re: What's on your Israel shopping list to bring back to the US?
With all due respect, IINM I don't think most consider Belz hechsher in EY first, or even second tier. Unlike in the US where Eckstein is considered amongst the top tiers in Kashrus.
bunch'u stupid politics, they are a good hechsher!

June 03, 2019, 11:57:30 AM
Re: What's on your Israel shopping list to bring back to the US? The hechsherim situation in Israel is very corrupted, it started with some idiots in the eidah chareidis that used to be the hechsheirem monopoly in Israel (specifically in Jerusalem) so when someone tried opening an hechsher they made sure (thru terror) that no one is gonna eat from them!!! this is what happened to belz and then again to rubin , machpud is a different situation because of sfardic halacha is different then ashkenazi in certain things

Or 10k to get such a card.
  Does the card work to get into any lounges , upgrades, status? Or you would need to do that all on your American Express account which has this card added? Pretty worthless otherwise.
They want you to give them all your CC info and they will give a new copy of your card

Re: DW gift ideas
I'll try a different approach, anyone have any experience taking a large number of balloons in their car?

I have a camry and I figure I can fit 10 in the trunk, and another 15 in the car between the back row and the passenger side. I just don't want to place the order at party city only to see that it wont actually fit. (Yes, I know I'm at 25 instead of 30 but I don't think I have a choice  :-\ )
make sure not to accidentally pop your trunk while on the road ;)

Re: Car Lease Master Thread
How was your experience with RODO would you use them again? Better than dealing with frum company?
So let's do it in a time map:

Wednesday 10:00 at night I placed my order, I was prompt to upload a picture of my ID card, picture of existing lease, and social security number.

Thursday 9:00 in the morning the inventory was confirmed with the dealership through Rodo that the car is available before they do the credit check.

A hour or so later I got a notification that I'm approved for the lease and the car is now reserved for me!

By 12 o'clock the car was technically ready for pickup - if not for Corona.

So the car was ready for pickup in about 14 hours from placing my order until the car was ready for me!!

I'm going to pick up the car myself instead of the free delivery option they offer because they told me that due to Corona the dealership can't promise me on a date for delivery, so Rodo is providing me a Lyft car ride to the dealership that's a 52 mile trip!

So my answer is yes I would very likely use them again, and it was a very good experience
