Re: Citi Premier Master Thread
Do purchases in store at gas stations (not at pump) qualify for 3x TYP's?
Sure. It was nice for buying $500 cards at 7-Eleven.

Re: Misc Credit Card Questions
So it sounds like one has nothing to do with the other?
 Meaning while I open multiple bank accounts it doesn't have a big impact on my cc applications?
 Obviously I'm not going to overdue it with either.
If you decline overdraft protection, they should not need to check your credit. Most banks pull your Chex report.

Re: I need Electric Help... Any electricians out there?
If I may ask, how is the hot wire roaming loose? If im not mistaken most put a wire cap on the hot wires and electric tape if needed.
 Not the safest thing to have hot wires running loose in the ceiling.
 Either the braker would blow or God forbid cause an electrical fire if you have exposed wires in your ceiling.   

Here are some examples of how the hot wire is roaming loose:
a mouse has nibbled at the insulation
a cockroach has nibbled at the insulation
some other creature has nibbled at the insulation
the person who installed it accidentally nicked some insulation and either didn't notice or pretended it didn't happen
old age combined with heat has caused the insulation to fray

Subsequently, a change in temperature causes a slight movement of the metal wire, causing it to make contact with some other metal.

If you want to talk about what's the safest thing, it's not the safest thing to forget about grounding either, yet somehow that happened.

If it was properly grounded and then the hot wire made contact with any part that's grounded, that would blow the circuit breaker saving you from getting a shock. But with no grounding, you don't have that protection.

Re: Staples Master Thread (Visa Rebates And Other Major Deals Need Their Own Thread)
Thought this deal was expired but still showing discount. up to 10 cards.
$100 MC GC for $100 (no $6.95 fee)
***While supplies last. May not be valid in combination with other offers. Offer subject to change. Offer Expires on 02/02/2019
(Will this also trigger Amex 10% offer?)
Last week's deal did expire. This is a new deal. I assume that means any limits are reset.
Last week I got 10% back from Amex. Should still be eligible.

Re: Amex Offers Discussion Thread
He must have a UK card.
You can charge an Amex in £ even if not a UK card. But in addition to the currency, the wording (Centenary vs. Centennial, 22 July vs. July 22,) seems to also be directed at British readers, so you're probably right.

We used priceline for getting good cheap flights. #PreDD.
We used Priceline to name our own price for gas and groceries.

Re: Amex Offers Discussion Thread I just added this helpful information to the bottom of the Wiki:
For cards not issued by American Express (such as Amex cards issued by Citi, USAA, PenFed, Bank of America, etc.)
Add offers to your card at this site:
You will be prompted for your name, card number and email address.

The offers there are the same for everyone, as they appear before you enter a card number. The best offers that I would like to add (Staples, Lowe's) are currently not appearing there, but who knows what might show up in the future.

Re: OBi Master Thread
  How can I tap into the obi to continue to run my internet to my computer?

 There's only two ports, lan and internet.
 Or is the lan ?
Its internet port connects to the internet. This can go directly into the cable modem* or into a LAN port on another router.

Its LAN port is used if you want to use this as a router, in which case you would plug your computers into the LAN port.

* I don't think the Obi202 or its Polycom replacement have gigabit ports, so if your Optimum service is faster than about 90Mbps, you don't want to put this in between and slow everything else down.

Re: Amex Offers Discussion Thread
Shoprite offer, any idea if it will work on gc (visa or store gc)? Nothing about it in t&c. Cs claimed it should be fine
It works. I bought Visa.

Re: Dewalt 18V 4 tool combo $189 free shipping!!

If your in the market for a drill Dewalt is the best on the market. The impact driver alone is usually in the $120-$135 range.
Thanks, in for one!

A few minutes ago, I finally opened the sealed box it was delivered in, almost 7 years after it was delivered. The battery is charging now; we'll see about shelf life when I try to use it in a few hours.

Warranty is long gone. I hope it works!

Re: Gift Card and gas Promo at Stop & Shop or Giant
I specifically asked the store manager if there is a promo for MC, and she told me, yes.

Anything I can do now?
Go back to that manager and ask her to manually add points.

Re: Optimum internet
thanks probably need to go with optimum... anyway to get a good rate or the standard throught google is the same...?
If you are eligible and don't need something faster, try Altice Advantage Internet. If you are not eligible, try Optimum 20 plan, which may be further discounted with auto pay. Buy a cable modem to avoid paying a rental fee to Optimum. If you buy, you may want to get one that's better than what you need for the plan you are signing up for now so that it can handle the highest speed you think you might want to upgrade to later.

Re: Best Buy - mystery discount
So even though I started the thread, I forgot to use my mystery reward certificate before it expired on Sunday.

I called the automated BB help line and it asked me for the phone number associated with the account. Once I put in the number it said - you have recently expired certificates, would you like them reinstated. When I answered yes, it reinstated this certificate along with another that recently expired and gave each of them an additional 60 days.

Not bad considering the original mystery certificate had a 10 day window!

Re: Chase Freedom Master Thread
The language of the new categories is "purchases made using Paypal".

Does this mean purchases only, not sending money to family and friends?
Is this quarter’s 5x bonus for PayPal only purchases or will it include sending money to another person?


What is included in the PayPal category?

Purchases in the PayPal category Include purchases made using your Chase Freedom card with PayPal. Purchases made using PayPal at merchants in the current 5% quarterly categories will be awarded a total of 5% Cash Back rewards on up to $1,500 in combined purchases. Payments made through the Xoom transfer service are not eligible for 5%. Must have/open a PayPal account. Please note, Friends and Family or Person-to-Person (P2P) transactions made with your Chase Freedom card on PayPal may be prohibited.

I still don't know the answer. The FAQ above is too cryptic. When Discover had PayPal as a quarterly category, sending money to friends and family got the bonus.
Try sending a small amount to see what happens.

Re: Jewish Music (New CDs, hock, and opinions)
Pianist (also sings a bit) is Rabbi Keilson, the Mashgiach in the Mesivta.
At Ari Goldwag's wedding, he spotted a piano in the hotel hallway outside the ballroom and made himself comfortable there. After a few minutes of his playing, a lady peeked out of an office window overlooking the hallway and commented to the effect that it was the most beautiful thing she had ever heard. This was coming from a person whose job was probably to sit in this office right above the piano and who heard it played regularly.

Can we get some IDs on the performers? I see Shloimy Kaufman and what I assume is his son (Nachi?). I recognize some other faces, but can't place them...
Cantor Joel Kaplan at 2:19.

Re: Jewish Music (New CDs, hock, and opinions) אשר בחר בנו by דודי קאליש מיט קינדער was released this week.
It's available from but there is no brief preview of each track, just a behind the scenes glimpse video.
I could not find it on Spotify or Amazon Music.

Re: Is It Ethical?
I bought something using a cash back portal and got some money credited to my account. my order then got cancelled. 3 months later my cash gets unlocked and is now able to be cashed it stealing or unethical to take it? or too bad on them?
Assume they only are ready to pay you because the merchant you ordered from paid them. If you decline to accept the payout, are they going to refund the merchant?

I'm not equipped to answer you, just contributing to the discussion.
