Deals/Deal Requests / Re: T-Mobile 3rd line free!
« on: March 05, 2017, 11:55:59 PM »
what's left out of this thread is that if one ports in a line onto a new account, one is eligible for a 20% discount on tmobile one services for life.  it's called t-mobile's insider hookup.  you get a code from an employee and enter it online.

it makes the 3 lines for $100 with kickback about $64 and no taxes/fees.  Heck,   5 lines would be an additional 40, but perhaps get another $20 ($10 * 2 kickbak) and with the 20% discount, comes out to 5 lines for $80 if don't use a lot of data, and if you do use a lot of data on some lines, it only goes up by $8 a line (i.e. still get 20% off the extra $10 you're spending).  And if there's only one line that uses a lot of data, make it the free one as not elligible for the kickback anyways.

Basically, its very possible to be spending less than $20 a line with what they were offering this weekend.

what I get for looking at the wrong forum (and/or trusting the forum description)

t-mobile is currently running a promotion where one can get 2 lines of t-mobile one + 10GB of 4G hotspot, double speed of their international roaming.  also includes 1Hr of gogo wireless on planes (per flight, unlimited flights).  It's really $110 but you get $5 per line bill credit for using autopay

This is a good deal in and of itself.  And remember, on t-mobile taxs are now included, so its $100 straight up.

Ending tonight they have get a third line free, this makes it even better.

Further, if you don't really use data on all your lines, you can enable kickback, which gives you $10 back (per paid line, so the free line wont work, so if you only use data on one line, make it the free one).  This could bring down your total monthly charges to $80.

Further, if you port in a foreign (i.e. non t-mobile) line onto a new account, you can get a "insider hookup" code (from an employee) that will give you 20% off your t-mobile one lines (i.e. that $80 could now be $64 for 3 lines, and if you have more than 3 t-mobile one lines it will include them all, won't include tablets, hotspots or wearable devices though)

might be too late, but you can call in to port a line and then try to get the hookup code later (people are selling them online, but not cheap, but in the big picture, even a $150 charge could save you lots of money)

Up In The Air / transfer time in istanbul
« on: January 31, 2016, 06:27:57 AM »
I'm looking at tickets to Israel for Pesach and the cheapest tickets are on Turkish Air.  I'm wondering how much time one should provide for transfering between the flights.  One itenerary gave me only 1 hour on the flight to Israel.  which seems too little?   Otherwise I'm looking at a 3 hour layover which seems like it should be more than enough.  I'm figuring the first itenerary isn't a good option but wanted to check in and see what others thought?

Credit Cards / Re: Evolve Money - Another opportunity

Right now I use Serve for that purpose :)

me too, but I end up paying at minimum 2% of the face to get it on serve (no walmarts near me, consider it pretty good that I only have to do 2%)

Credit Cards / Re: Spend My GCs and Keep the "Spread"!
« on: July 07, 2014, 09:38:54 AM »
I don't get why people think staples is so much better.  Occasionally they have deals where one can get it below 3.5% ($7 fee for a $200 card), but generally not.  Even when they have it, one has to put in a decent amount of effort to get it.  i.e. unless you value the points at more than 1 cent a point (possible) you're only making 1.5%.  This guy is offering nearly double that with minimal effort.

if its not a scam and you make all your money, whats not yosher about it? you might be a  navul b'rushut ha'torah but what does it have to do with the above?

ok, I get your sarcasm (not at first though), but I wonder how one can a RY and think this is even in the realm of acceptableness.

Even if it wasn't a scam and you'd be able to make all your money back, one has to ask if this is yosher.

When people go up to shamayim, hashem is going to call a lot of us navul b'rushut ha'torah (including myself probably).

I'm worried about it costing some oft he charities more than the value (i.e. think paypal where it's flat fee + %age)

Any recommendations for ways to empty a debit card with only 5 cents left on it?  I figure I can use it at the grocery store and have them do multiple swipes, but somewhat embarrassing.  :(

any other creative ways people have?

btw went to my cvs tonight to try and do serve load.  It failed (even though there's a pending charge now on my amex, need to follow up with that over the next few days and make sure it falls off)

I was asking more if thetoad had him arrested.

no.  I dont care that much.  people can do what they are going to do.

I'm not arguing with that, just pretty sure people are.

wondering how many people stole unused cards from say a wallgreens on elsewhere that didnt sell them on credit card and checked out on them at a cvs.

pretty sure I saw someone do that today, there were no VR cards at the CVS I was at, and he was checking out with them.  I called him on it "hey, where did you get those cards", "uh uh uh, I must have gotten the last few".
