General Discussion / LG VS Sunpower Solar Panels
« on: August 10, 2016, 03:18:40 PM »
I know there is a general discussion about Solar Panels, but I am looking to have a more specific discussion on LG 310W solar panels vs Sunpower 327 W Solar Panels.  As an intro im in NYC so we get decent local tax breaks in addition to the federal breaks.

If I goto through Sunrun costco I can get the system for 19500 before tax breaks and a 783 costco gift card and probably pay with a credit card. 
If go through Sunpower I can get an equivalent system for about 27000 if I pay by check.  Is Sunpower really worth the extra money.  The final difference will not be as great as there is a 30% federal tax incentive which narrows the gap but still it seems like all in factoring the costco gift card its 7800 out of pocket vs about 12k out of pocket.  Any insights? 

Is anyone else experiencing this on the site.  The option to purchase virtual AA gcs is no longer available.

Today is June 1 so the credit for 100 on Golds should be alive but havent found the link to register yet.  Anyone know it?

For anyone who wants to get a free year of amex platinum this is a great deal! 

Get all the amex platinum benefits including priority pass, 200 each calendar year incidental airline fees, global entry, etc.

Even though the sign up bonus is very low, Im very tempted as a free year of Amex platinum is very useful.

Up In The Air / BA Avios Reward on AA flight change issue
« on: January 23, 2015, 12:23:32 PM »
I will try to be as brief as possible but there are a lot of details to mention here.

In May 2014 we booked avios awards for Pesach 2015.  At the time we booked we couldnt find ideal dates (April 2 - April 12) so we took March 31 through April 13.

A few months later we got an email that our flight numbers on the return were changed.  At some point about 6 weeks ago we called BA to get them to switch our flights to April 12th due to the cancellation (flight number change).  Technically, there was no real change as it was the exact same flight just a different number but he agreed to request that AA open up 5 revenue seats on April 12.  He never called back.

However, earlier this week, we checked our record locator and we saw it listed the flight on April 12 as well as 3 flights on April 13 for the same trip.

My wife called BA today to get our April 12 tickets confirmed and they now show as ticketed on and our April 13th flights are gone.  However, later on in the call they told us that they will not be able to put us on a flight on April 12 due to the fact that its a different fare class and that they will have to put us back on April 13 which is no longer available.  My wife is concerned that we may lose our seats on the return alltogether.  I dont think they can make us lose our seats.

Has anyone had experience in a situation like this.

Credit Cards / Amex Warranty Extension
« on: December 09, 2014, 02:51:32 PM »
Amex warranty extension used to be very simple.  Something was out of the mfg warranty and within a year after that.  You call up, they send you a check.  Now it seems every time I report an issue they are requiring a repair estimate.  But the problem is, to actually get a repair estimate is probably not worth the cost as I have no intention of repairing the item and some places will charge just to look at it.  FYI this is a dell computer

Any advice.

I traded someone one tablet for another.  We met up and his worked.and mine worked.  The guy calls me and tells me that when he updated the applications through the app store that it no longer worked, and that I didn't give him a tablet with a legitimate os.  That is completely not true.  I told him to just do.a factory restore of hdd has problems.  He then threatened me that he will blacklist the tablet he gave me with t mobile by claiming it was stolen.  If I goto the manufacturer and get them to issue a warranty replacement before he gets to do that, can they track the original back to the new one, or will I be.Scott free?  I normally wouldn't resort to these tactics but I feel that since he is playing dirty I need to protect myself.  Advice?  Has anyone had this happen to them Benoit?  Afterwards, I checked on swappa and I see that the device he gave me is on payment plan. At first I was concerned about חילול השם but I think he's trying to take advantage because he needed up

Credit Cards / PSA : Never pay someones credit card through an ACH pull
« on: October 22, 2014, 03:54:30 PM »
Last year I owed someone some money and he needed it really quickly so I called up his credit card company, American Express, to pay his bill. 

Fast forward to today.  I check my bank online and there is an almost 10k ACH pull to this guys Amex account. 

When I called Amex then I asked them not to save my info, apparently that did not help.

I called the guy he apologized profusely.  I am assuming it was a mistake.  However, now I have to wait for my nearly 10k to come back. 

Lesson learned.  if you need to pay someone do an online bill pay, do not allow them to ach pull from your bank.

Credit Cards / Which Bank do you recommend for a small business in NYC
« on: October 20, 2014, 11:06:35 AM »
I need a bank that provides outgoing ACH for very little.  I also need a bank that does not charge for incoming international wires. 
I can meet any minimum balances needed.  I have chase already and BOFA isnt an option.

Anyone have experience using two dental insurance companies to pay for braces.
My wife has metlife and I have delta and we would like to use both to cover the majority of the costs. Mine is the primary. Has anyone had experience dealing with this.

Hoping to get my first main site deal with this one.

i just tried 24 October to 9 November and I got $188

Unfortunately, the dates dont work for me as I cant get away to Italy for so long.  However, this works nicely for someone who wants to take an extended trip to Europe or go off to Israel using a cheap cash or mileage flight in the middle.

Credit Cards / Reopening an Amex Platinum Card
« on: September 09, 2014, 10:19:59 AM »
Does anyone know if I cancel my platinum and reopen it whether they would give me the credit again.  the reason i ask is because I cancelled an account and then had to reopen it in order to get extended warranty coverage and when i tried logging into it allowed me to select an airline for the credit again.  Has anyone done this and gotten the 200 credit?

I posted this in the main thread but noone responded as that thread seems to be pretty inactive.  Hoping someone sees this and can help.
