As you can see above some of the lesser known(smaller) companies are substantially lower priced.  However at what expense? what has been you experience if any with them: 

Are they less up front with fees, taxes, insurance etc..?
Are they tougher on CDW insurance meaning do they want written proof of coverage or otherwise they make you purchase their CDW insurance ?
Are they tougher on international travelers with foreign passport requiring for example written liability coverage or else they make you purchase their liability coverage?

Any other thoughts, experiences?

General Discussion / Jewelry for DW
« on: March 12, 2018, 06:05:09 PM »
DW wants custom 2-tone ring that is most durable; in other words least likely to fade or tarnish over time.  She wants to wear it everyday

If value of metal is not a factor whats the best option: stainless steel, 10k gold, 14k gold, pewter? other metals ?

General Discussion / soft baseballs
« on: August 24, 2017, 01:29:27 PM »
looking for soft baseball that wont hurt my children when it hits them yet durable enough to be hit with a bat and last a long time and also travel as close as possible the same distance as a real baseball.

My experience has been that either the balls are too soft and don't replicate a real baseball or if they are more and less same and size and weight as a baseball they fall apart after a day of batting practice etcc...

any recommendations?

General Discussion / ellipticals
« on: June 24, 2016, 09:47:31 AM »
Wanted to know which elliptical you have a good experience purchasing and from where? Looking in the  $100-300 range.  However I often hear these "cheaper models" break down and you a left without recourse

I heard Costco is the way to go as they will stand behind their products and fix anything that goes wrong?
