On this topic, has any amazon rep ever followed up with something they said they would follow up on?
He claimed that he gets fined by Amazon if he does not. I was skeptical (and still am) but fortunately, he did follow up.

Web sites that disable paste to confirm password  :-X
onpaste="return false;"
I assume you mean when you are choosing a password for the first time. Some site don't let you paste even when you are logging in. I challenge them to articulate what they are protecting you from. If this gets annoying enough, I'll write a program to type out the contents of the clipboard.

Chabibi. I'm asking for data points from either way.
I can confirm that I used samsung pay directly to pay with a card that was linked to chase pay and it counted as chase pay
I can confirm that yesterday I used Samsung Pay directly (without logging in first to Chase Pay) to pay with a card that was linked to Chase Pay (installed on the same phone) and it did not earn bonus points. When the Samsung Pay app was showing the card, it showed the Chase logo (outside of the rectangle depicting the card) which I thought was enough of an indication that it would count like Chase Pay, but alas it did not.

I tried to buy a gift card at self checkout but couldn't. There were no staffed checkout lanes open at the time. The person working the desk that supervises the self checkout was able to add the gift card to the same transaction as the rest of my groceries.

So it sounds like one has nothing to do with the other?
 Meaning while I open multiple bank accounts it doesn't have a big impact on my cc applications?
 Obviously I'm not going to overdue it with either.
If you decline overdraft protection, they should not need to check your credit. Most banks pull your Chex report.

Good point.. forgot we can do this - should work. If no one else responds I'll try in next few days and report back.
I used my offer for Uber Eats when they offered free delivery last week.

anyone knows of a software that can recover deleted pictures from an Android phone? (Or app) I tried Recuva but my Phone doesn't show up
I assume that your photos were not on a removable memory card. With that assumption, I have no answer to offer. If they were on a memory card, get it connected to a computer and there are several options.


This was posted in Serve thread:
Look what they have to do to keep the card alive.

  Effective February 1, 2019, the following fees will apply1:

•Card replacement: $5.00 per replacement Card, for standard delivery of 7-10 business days. This fee will apply if your Card is lost, stolen, or damaged and you call or submit an online request to have a replacement Card mailed to you.

•ATM transaction decline: $0.75 per decline. This fee will apply at a MoneyPass or other ATM, only if you enter an invalid PIN, exceed your ATM withdrawal limits or your Account has insufficient funds.

Is this true for Bluebird too? I think I lost a Family Account card.

if it was a weekly rental, and PC was for a weekly quote , it makes sense....
I asked again and they agreed to take off the $40.

What does Amex do if UPS tried to deliver a card to me twice and then returned it to sender? Will they resend it to me, or wait for me to call about it?
If you're in a hurry to get it, they might be able to contact UPS even while it is in transit to have it directed to where you can receive it.

I can't find the right thread, sorry.

With the current 5% categories I can get at Lord and Taylor if I shop thru Chase web portal it's +2%. So my question is would that total 7% or is one or the other?
You can't find the thread because portals aren't discussed on this forum. It's the former.

If I use PC 204609 and put in the return date I want, which is 5 days plus a few hours after pickup, the code does not work. But if I put in a return date of a full 7 days later, it does work. What happens if I reserve for the later return date and then return it earlier? Will they really void the PC and charge me more?
Often times rentals will charge you more for an early return.
One of the reasons I have seen, is because they need to deal with parking your car, and/or less ability to re-rent on the day you return.
The long story short is, yes you will almost always pay the had rate you saw when you were reserving if you return early.
I believe hertz changed their policy, that if returning earlier will cost more, they charge the original quoted price.
I returned it 1.8 days early. They did not charge an early return "fee", but the PC 204609 vanished, causing me to be charged $40 more than the original quote. Ouch.
