Credit Cards / Carrying a balance on cards
« on: July 03, 2018, 11:38:57 PM »
A few of my cards have balances, I was busy traveling etc, didn't take a salary from my business and just really left some of my cards to keep a balance.

Anyways,  I don't have the funds to pay the cards to 0, I'm annoyed I'm donating to the corporate banks but it is what it is.

I have a plan to pay my cards in full, but yes the interest hurts, a friend suggested  I call up and request an interest freeze for 6 months on the condition I pay xx a month etc.

Does this work? I do like most of my cards, so I'm not keen on getting anything closed. Thanks

p.s. yes, I can churn, but it's not always realistic, I rather pay my cards to 0 and no interest for a few months would help.

Season 1 was incredible. Season 2 had me binge watching this week, in fact I've barely slept all week. But as compelling and addicting as it was. It was one of the stupidest and pathetic shows with the ending having no closure... in fact, it made no sense!

I am so effing pissed. Flying May 27 MIA - BCN, BCN - TLV later that week. Was planning to return TLV - MIA june 6. Air europa had a great flight with stopover in MAD at $400. I realized I had a 75 euro voucher, I tried for like 2 weeks to reach someone and they say oh voucher expired WTF the email they sent with voucher has no wording that iot must be used by a certain date.

They said email us at ... I did, no reply. So I figured what the heck I better just book right ? flights are all 1k+ from them, next best option is Tap at 600 and 13h stopover vs 19h on air europa (was going to use a few hours to explore madrid and stay in hotel.

Any ways, i'm screwed right ? The airline will no honor the older price even though they BS'ed me ?

A friend has been hounding the heck out of me to read the book. So I finally got it, it's incredible. Wondering if any one else has read / listened to Dr Peterson.

Interesting notes, Rabbi Sacks quotes him, but essentially the Lubavitcher Rebbe laid out some of this, specifically how advanced civilization like nazi germany, Buchenwald which was near Weimark, city of Goethe, Schiller, Herder, Wieland and Bertuch and considered the cradle of civilization.

I like the discussion of balancing vice and virtues, which is healthy IMHO. Like it feels good to eat junk food even when you're on a healthy diet because it puts your values in prospective and lets you run amok.

Credit Cards / Capital one interest ?!
« on: April 11, 2018, 12:50:59 PM »
I dont use my capital one card often but was trying to free up balances on my chase cards.

Go charged with interest, I contacted them, I said "hey I paid to 0!" they said well, we charge based on your avg daily balance. ive never heard of this before.. Is this allowed or ?

So, Maui will wait, just too dizzy looking at the flight plan. Plan B is:

Miami - BCN -greece -Israel.

Return.. any ideas ?

I see BCN to greece is like 75$ and greece to israel like 50$

I want to spend a few days in Barcelona at the wineries
Greece I have no idea, open to ideas and suggestions, maybe 2-3 days, I like sea port towns, older cities etc the country.

Israel about 10 days

On return or way there, I want to visit Seville for a day and Lisbon Portugal for a day.

Can you be of help? Happy to have any of youse join in Barcelona for visits to Elvi, Clos Mesorah, Capcanes and in israel to a dozen wineries and slaughtering a lamb

Chaggai was one of the last prophets; he was on the Beis Din of Ezra and was a member of the anshei kenesses hagdolah. Thus, he prophesied during a period after the destruction of the first Beis Hamikdash, when the people were in Bavel. He was a student of either Yechezkel or Baruch ben Neriah, and was a prophet in the days of Daryavesh, king of Persia.

ok, but...

According to the Rambam, Chaggai lived until the destruction of the second Beis Hamikdash.

He would have been 500+
