On The Road / Avis vs National vs Hertz
« on: November 06, 2016, 07:23:15 PM »
Avis Presidents vs National Executive Elite vs Hertz President Circle

I have Avis and matched to the others.

Price aside, which is the best from the three? I did notice that National offers "Private Airport Delivery - We'll have your car waiting at most private airports within 50 miles of us. (in US and Canada)"

I was going to post this in Just Shmooze section but there may be some useful advice that will come to all new parents here.

I had my first born child last week and his bris will IYH be this Thursday. I have not been so much on the site in last 7 months due to my promotion at work b'h (LNHA). Any recent and active tips would be much appreciated. My wife is going on a shopping spree and needs one of everything, please let me know what and where are the best places for us newbies :)

On The Road / Missed my stay and they charged me
« on: September 04, 2012, 11:17:42 AM »
I searched the forum but came up empty on a topic which I thought I'd for sure see here.

I was in Miami and had called SPG for a quote at Four Points Miami Beach. Truth is I don't remember if I had created the RSVP. They claim I did and didn't cancel it and was a no show so they charged me for the 1st night (I don't have any emails showing the RSVP or me cancelling it (i may have deleted them all, idk). below is the email thread i had with them, start from the bottom and read up.

Any ideas how I can get out of this?

Dear Mr. AAAAA,
Thank you for your response. I have reviewed your reservation, unfortunately the call was not recorded so I may never be sure what happened during your conversation and can only assume a misunderstanding occurred. Taking into consideration that the confirmation email for the reservation was sent and that the system shows that you located the reservation online, we are not in the position to refund the no show penalty you were charged. We are aware that your opinion of our service has been affected by the handling of your concerns and do hope that in time, you may consider to stay with us in the future.
If there is anything else I can help you with; please do not hesitate to contact me.
Regards, Santiago Erhardt

General Discussion / How soon do you throw away the box after purchase?
« on: December 12, 2011, 04:57:46 PM »
The subject line explains it all.

I will keep boxes until they get in the way then dispose. Should I be keeping them? How long? Does it make a difference what its from?

Tech Talk / TV help
« on: November 29, 2011, 09:47:56 PM »
I would like to buy a TV for my bedroom. It will need to be mounted on an arm bracket higher up. I measured approximately how far it would be from my bed. It will be about 12 feet from me.

Currently DD has a deal posted now: LG 42″ 1080p 120Hz LED Ultra-Slim LED HDTV, Normally $799.99, Now Just $499 Shipped From Amazon!

I don't know that much (read: nothing) about TVs nowadays. Its been a while. The only thing I know I will probably want to do it add a Xbox later on..

What size do I want/need to get?

Ideas please..  thx!

Groupon has a great deal going on...

$24 for a 30-Day Passport Membership to New York Sports Clubs ($49 Value)

This deal is not exclusive to just one location, you can go to any NY location during the 30 days !

Tech Talk / Ipod Shuffle
« on: October 12, 2011, 01:56:57 PM »
I just got an Ipod Shuffle from a friend. He had it laying around collecting dust so I repossessed it for him.

Now that I have a Ipod Shuffle.. I cant seem to get it to work. I charged it overnight. Now it just won't connect to my computer. I'm currently running on the newest Itunes.

I did check online for troubleshooting but nothing helped...  :-\

Anyone with any ideas? (other then going down to the store..)

Credit Cards And Finance / Roth IRA
« on: April 11, 2011, 05:12:11 PM »
I need to open a Roth IRA account in the next few days.

I don't plan on doing any major trading but I do want to have the option. Different companies have different trade fees, annual maintenance fees and other fees.

Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Any suggestions, tips, and helpful info would be much appreciated.
