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.

Re: I Remember When...
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.
