Just Shmooze / Re: Is It Ethical?
« on: Today at 04:48:55 AM »
I bought something using a cash back portal and got some money credited to my account. my order then got cancelled. 3 months later my cash gets unlocked and is now able to be cashed out....is it stealing or unethical to take it? or too bad on them?
Assume they only are ready to pay you because the merchant you ordered from paid them. If you decline to accept the payout, are they going to refund the merchant?

I'm not equipped to answer you, just contributing to the discussion.

I want to try this. I installed the app and signed up. I was able to add a Chase Visa but got error for every Amex I tried to add. Anyone else have a problem with this?
I contacted them. They fixed the glitch and then I was able to add the Amex cards.

Anybody know if the b15 bus goes directly to terminal 5 or does one need to take the green airtrain? (and is the airtrain free?)
It looks like the bus stops at the terminal 5 Airtrain station. The Airtrain is free to get from one terminal to another.

Anybody have any staples coupon codes? (such as $20 off $100 etc)
I cant seem ti find any valid ones online.

Yesterday, they sent me $25 off $75 online order, plus free 8oz hand sanitizer. Sorry I can't share it, it's nontransferable. Get on their email list and look out for these things.

Not really,

So now they are out of stock. When I wrote my post, one card was available for 0.5% off.

I'm looking to max out the Freedom bonus, not interested in other merchant gift cards.   I was wondering if Costco cards can be resold at a premium because people don't need a membership to enter the warehouse and use them.
I doubt it. In fact they can be bought at a slight discount online. https://www.cardcash.com/buy-gift-cards/discount-costco-cards

Although your own wholesale club shopping for this quarter might be under $1500, you could buy Costco (or other wholesale club) gift cards for your own future purchases, to the extent that you could afford to prepay.

A switch is dumb, it just routes the traffic between ports. Your modem would have to be set up for DHCP, as the default gateway, etc (likely the case already). If it doesnít do that and/or want to do other fancier stuff (like having reserved IPs for certain computers on your network, custom DNS, etc) then you can use a router thatíll do all that for you.
Most home modems (especially the older ones) only have 1 port for Ethernet out. If you want more then that hardwired (not wireless), you can plug in a switch.
My comment was on YitzyS's post which I assumed was referring to either a modem (without built in router) with multiple Ethernet ports or a modem (without built in router) with one Ethernet port into which you plug a switch. Either way, each computer or device you plug in would need its own publicly routable IP address. Whether static or dynamic, I assumed Optimum charges extra for more than one at a time.

FTFY

I know people who specifically don't have a router, because they don't want their children to access their internet, or to even know that their is internet access]. Rather they plug their computers into the modem with an Ethernet cable, which puts internet directly from the modem to their computers, and they don't have wifi access in their home.
If you don't want WiFi and have more than one computer or device that needs internet access, you still want a router, just not a wireless router. If you plug more than one device into the modem, don't you have to pay extra for additional IP addresses?

You could even walk to Lefferts station(next stop) and pay $0
I am considering this for a quick trip into JFK for a Global Entry interview. Because I will have nothing to schlep with me, I don't mind walking a few blocks. Is it really possible to do this walk without illegally walking across the A train tracks, paying an unnecessary subway fare at the Howard Beach A train station just to get to the other side of the tracks, or walking on roads with no sidewalk?
