I paid for a Pesach program with a Chase Visa card and initiated a chargeback because the merchant was only offering a 65% refund. My claim was denied because VISA's policy is that government regulation overides existing polices, so if a program could not open due to COVID-19 it's not considered their fault.

Does anyone have ideas on how to respond to this other than sue the merchant?

Goods For Sale/Trade / Earn $75 while doing me a favor
« on: December 24, 2019, 06:29:53 PM »
Ask: Will pay $75 for anyone that can hook me up with an official repair estimate for a broken printer.

Background: I have a Canon Pixma G4210 that broke (no longer wirelessly connects to a computer and also has a roller that doesn’t work). As the 1 year warranty recently passed, my only hope is the Chase extended warranty. However, Chase requires an official estimate from a service repair place. Speaking to various places, I gather that the cost to repair will probably exceed my $320 cost but none are able to give me an official estimate, just an e-mail or a house call for a high fee. I already tried Canon (manufacturer), Staples (the seller) and a bunch of others in NYC.

Fine Print (not so fine): $75 to be paid in any form requested. Must obtain actual written estimate in pdf format showing cost to repair (or statement that cost to repair exceeds cost of printer), items broken, printer model, address and EIN of repair place.


Add: $5.99 Extended Download Service charge to bring total to > $30

Use Amex card after adding "spend $30 get $10 back."

There are cheaper versions which may work for your needs.

Does anyone know what the current exemption amount for clothing shipped from the UK to the US? I thought it was $800 but got a bill from FedEx for a $300 item.

Tech Talk / Website Recovery
« on: May 13, 2015, 07:55:41 AM »
My wife has an e-commerce website that uses Zencart as the backend.  She was using an old version which needed to be updated. Instead of changing the files individually, we updated all the files. This effectively erased the entire website.

Is there a way to recovery the website? We have not manually backed it up.

Just took a flight on Delta from SAT and there was this frum, male flight attendant.  He was hilarious.  Should've gotten his name.  Anyone know of him?

Just Shmooze / Halachic Source for no music during sefira
« on: April 20, 2013, 09:27:53 PM »
Does anyone know what the earliest Halachic source for prohibiting music listening during Sefira? The Mishna B'rura doesn't mention it so it must be more recent.
