General Discussion / lost/stolen by UPS
« on: May 14, 2020, 05:40:11 PM »
I had to return an expensive item through UPS ground. Wanted a receipt so I went to UPS store, to be told it's in the wrong kind of box.

Went to my office, packed in the right box, and bumped into the UPS guy and figured I might as well and asked him to scan it. He said he would do that right after he dropped off and scanned that item. I did not actually see him scan it (could not follow him around).

Now a day later it is still not in UPS system. Cannot get through to any live person at UPS due to covid and not having a record of pickup.

I saw him the next day and he claimed he scanned it and can't help me.

Is there anything I can do?

IAD-TLV summer flights $700 Iberia, many dates
$700 is hard to beat for a summer flight on a regular airline, but more than 6 hour layovers in Madrid

Deals/Deal Requests / Multipurpose copy paper?

Where are you buying copy paper now that there are no easy rebates at staples for (almost) free paper? Got used to  doing that, but now ran out.

Tech Talk / Bose QC stopped working
« on: June 25, 2018, 05:51:27 PM »
Have a set of QC  15 that are/were great, but the light won't come on anymore and it doesn't work. Did some fiddling and research and is probably related to the wire that is on the battery door, opening and closing many times, it wears out. Seems to be a known problem.

Bose will replace with a QC 25 for $135.

Is that my best bet or any other suggestions?

Up In The Air / Help - Change Flight Date Due to Medical Emergency
« on: February 05, 2018, 03:31:29 PM »
booked  someone with biz plat 50% in J on UA, they had a medical emergency (can document)  and cant fly the original date.

On another thread I was advised to call Amex not UA.

They called United and said they might waive the change fee $450 but not the fare difference which is over $1000 even in the same fare class.

The original flight is soon, so any help you can give is appreciated.

On The Road / Amex not covering taxes on Israel rentals?
« on: January 23, 2018, 01:10:32 PM »
 Amex started covering rentals in Israel in September

See this post

I submitted a claim for car rental damage in Israel with Amex. The car rental companies here charge 17% VAT for damages, and now Amex claim they only cover the damage but not the taxes. I never had such an issue with chase. Did anyone have a similar situation? Is there anything I can do about it?

I checked my T&C and they exclude taxes on repairs , unless required by law to cover them. I assume in the US they do cover taxes, but seems in Israel they won't? If correct, why use Amex to rent?

Deals/Deal Requests / Looking for Iphone 6 unlocked
« on: November 13, 2017, 05:02:54 PM »
Looking for Iphone 6 unlocked or Tmobile, 16gb ok.

Bought off ebay from a major seller but it has issues (it's ebay!)

Any deals on a good seller for cheap (< $250 )? Is it possible to get it new? Some sell it as new but unclear from ebay comments if it really is.
