Got tickets, my total price was below $1,000. 859 total for 4 orchestra seats on June 13th. These were a lot less than the MYS cutoff price. They must be making a killing on these then, right?

If they do Iím sure they will increase the commission to maintain loyalty

Any reason why not to use a business account?

I never had one.

Received a call from HSBC asking about my frequent deposits of checks from MYS. They implied I should be using a business account for this. Anyone else get this?

Embarrassing and awful. So much for being a light unto the nations.

Well they do have Daas Torah to rely on.

The more I'm hearing, the more I'm starting to agree with your view. My trust level in my fellow Chareidy brethren has plummeted to near 0. Add the recent London Dayan story, whom 2 of his kids are great friends of mine, and I can't even trust Rabbi's.


You believe the rumors are true? Maybe he resigned for other reasons.

If a buying group mistakenly over pays you for an item, is it a Ribis issue?

I contacted them about it and they "fixed" by overpaying me even more

Where is the loan?

Just want to follow up and say MYS fixed my issues... Obviously there's going to be more negative posts than positive, just like on Yelp you're only really inclined if you have a bad experience.

Thought I should say they made good, and I'm back to doing business with them. Although their payouts are slower, I do enjoy knowing the product arrived that day with their efficient tracking / scanned in portal.

What were your issues?

The accepted Halacha  is not like Rav Moshe regarding shabbos timers...

FTFY

Donít want to start another (off topic) halachic discussion, there is enough of that happening already

Praise the Lord.

May be good, but itís indicative of the fact that he will come in with an opinion and will take one side of an issue and tilt the show toward it....

Sounds like every person with a radio show or equivalent.

He had Rav Dovid Cohen who agreed with him that many of the tznius guidelines such as long skirts , type of material etc. are opinions of poskim rather than clear halachos with a mekor, but pushed back when Lichtenstein suggested that based on a teshuva of Rav Moshe allowing a tefach of hair to be uncovered etc. there is no obligation to follow guidelines that are machmir , pointing out to Lichtenstein that in places where this is the accepted mode of dress, to dress otherwise becomes assur....

Somehow Rav Falk never made it onto his show....

Good.

General Discussion / Re: Custom Suits

There is someone called the suit lady. In Teaneck I think.
I never used her (Iím not a custom suit kind of guy) but people say sheís good.
Theres another custom suit place opening in 5t every day if you need more options. Andrew lock is one although my friend said he doesnít really know what the high prices are for for an average good custom suit

Andrew is good. Itís Made to Measure and full canvassed construction, made in China I think. It will be out of your price range.

Looks like a mod needs to split this thread again

Every discussion of Halacha needs to be split off.

So it's bad to knock off 9% but totally reasonable  to knock off 10% for a cash payment demand?

Any discount is fine as long as taxes are charged on the (reduced) price.

Asking the Department of Motor Vehicles to not charge you tax on a cash transaction is another story.
