Credit Cards / Amex (Canada) Messed Up
« on: January 31, 2019, 03:29:53 PM »
To make a long story short, I called in Amex 2 weeks before my due date on a business platinum card to cancel the pre authorized debit of $46k, and I made manual payment.

Fast forward 2 weeks I see my bank in overdraft, what happened? Amex did pull out the payment!!

Frustrated I call them they apologize, promise to send a refund cheque Express Courier, ok!!

I ask Amex if they'll cover my interest and fees on payments that bounced due to the overdraft, they say well if we can verify that you indeed called in and requested to stop it we will refund you, I gave them the exact date and time the call was made, Lo and behold the rep called me back 2 hours later that they pulled the call and I'm 100% right, in that case once I have documentation of the fees incurred they will process a refund.

Is the matter resolved? So I thought, the refund cheque finally arrives Today, but they put my personal name and my personal address, the credit card is on my business name and address but no mention of my business name or address on the refund cheque, the bank will not accept it.

I just put down the phone with them, they promised to send me a replacement refund cheque ASAP, now I've come to terms with what ASAP means, and it ain't fun.

What compensation can I expect for these troubles ?

ETA: I realized I couldn't make the long story short after all

Hi All,

Sorry for bothering but we can use your help here, let me explain what is going on:

KDP (Kindle Direct publishing) is a print-on-demand book publishing platform which is a great tool for small publishers or authors to sell books cost effectively, until now there was another company called CreateSpace which was acquired by Amazon in 2005 but operated completely separate until this year

the issue?

I'm involved in a non-profit which which greatly benefited from CreateSpace selling various Hebrew books, now that opportunity is likely sunsetting, i'm asking you to please take 2 minutes to petition to KDP (Amazon) to support hebrew for new published books.

Code: [Select]
Here you have a sample message you can copy/paste

Support Yiddish and Hebrew on KDP

Dear Amazon/KDP,

I have been a customer buying printed books in Yiddish and Hebrew sold on Amazon and printed through CreateSpace. Now, with CreateSpace merging into KDP these languages are not supported anymore.

Unlike widely used languages, minority languages need the support of the print-on-demand system to be able to grow and flourish and to make reading material accessible to its users I implore you to please reconsider, and include Yiddish and Hebrew in the list of languages supported by KDP -- specifically for print.


To send the message please click here:

(After logging in with your amazon credentials you may need to click again)

On the left side you will find:
"Moving from CreateSpace to KDP"

Copy Paste and submit (or write your own)

Thanks in advance

Deals/Deal Requests / ISO: Full Featured Espresso Machine
« on: August 27, 2018, 11:19:52 AM »

Does anyone have a recommendation (preferably first hand experience) for a reasonably priced espresso machine must have the following features built in:
  • Water Reservoir (so that priping is optional)
  • Built in or attached grinder
  • Built in milk steamer

I will edit the post to add links on models i find during my research to get feedback on them

The Breville BES840XL looks like a good option, only missing grinder ?
Breville BES870XL Barista Express Espresso Machine looks like has it all ?


I'm trying to find the cheapest service for photo prints when ordering minimum prints at a time like 1-2 photos

Amazon prime prints looks like 0.09+Free shipping, is this the best/only option out there?
