It's a nice deal however these laptops are not the $1500 laptops you think it is even though it's an i7 it's a weak i7 and the hard drive is slow
what kind of hard drive is considered fast?

You know Wall Street hates AAPL when u see :

NFLX jumps 17% when reporting a profit of $24 Million  ,
AMZN jumps 12% when reporting a $550 Million loss


AAPL reports a $13 BILLION profit and drops 3%
its probably going to close at 134-135 though

anyone going from monsey to queens in the next hour or two? I need some dry cleaning to get there

When I was buying items at the target, the cashier always pushes for the customers to apply for the RC to save 5%. When it came to me I said, I have one and used it. She then asked me where I got it. I saw that she really wanted it so I was nice and then asked if she can load my card. She did without any hesitation. What I don't understand is, she is advertising the card to every customer, why can't she just apply for the card like she would do if a customer  agreed to get the RC?

Anyone know of a good deal for a laptop in the 450-600$ range that would be fast and good for business work (i will buy a warranty hopefully so it doesn't need to be top of the line in sturdiness but i would like it to work well)
Look for Lenovo ThinkPad with an i5-4200M processor or higher, these laptops aren't pretty but very sturdy and have much better processors than the ultrabook type processor. You should be able to find something under $550.
   I bought a Lenovo G500 (intel-core i5-i believe it was 4200)in the beginning of Jan 14. I've had problems with it. I don't download much on my computer so it can work faster. It just wasnt working right but I didnt know what the problem was. Then when I called in for a battery problem, ironically the laptop froze and when I tried turning it on, it wouldnt load. The tech guy tried many things and ultimately told me to send it in. After I hung up the phone it started working again. But again, there was definitely something wrong. They ended up changing a ton of things including the motherboard and it worked ok until a couple of months ago. It wasnt working properly again and eventually when it would go to sleep, it wouldnt start up again or when I shut down, it would shut down the programs and there would be a black screen but the fans would work and the green light AND the BATTERY light was on (even though it wasnt charging). When I would turn it on, it doesnt load until a restart. I'm out of warranty now but I complained and they are going to "fix the problem" free of charge. I'm hoping to sell it after I get it back because I'm afraid of more problems. So I'm not too sure about Lenovo's but their customer service is amazing so I would recommend a 3 yr warranty

My laptop had different hardware problems and when I was under warranty I sent it in and they fixed it. Its giving me more problems now and I'm not under the warranty. I spoke to someone high in the company and he's "giving a one time out of warranty fix." Last time I gave it in, I thought they would scan for ALL problems but it turns out that they didn't. This time, being my last time, what problems would make them do a FULL check up?

The status of my rebate has been reading "sent.....etc." for the past 2 months. What's taking so long

Credit Cards / AA Bonus Miles

I got an email stating that if I gift miles to someone I'll get bonus miles. If i gift 100k, there will be 60k bonus miles. Did anyone else get this email? If I gift them which account will get the bonus? (if this has been talked about in a different thread I apologize in advance)

Went to load today. So, first of all they had to bring the CS Supervisor to do it and he asked for photo ID. Then when I told him to load 250 he says that there's a max of 1000 daily. After some confusion I had to explain that I'm loading only two hundred and fifty dollars at which point he laughs and says "Oh my bad, cuz people are coming in here everyday trying to load $2,500 in one shot."  ;D
monsey is getting annoying with that. When I went to load 500 the manager told me (right before I swiped) "I almost added an extra zero, that would've been good" I just replied "good for you". and he said "no for you" and I said "have a nice day" with a smile and left. I bet it was the same manager

this can be added to your RC for $20 profit on each one, why is everyone talking about selling?

Chase $200 offer for opening a new bank account with direct deposit (which is up for grabs if anybody wants it)

How can I look up the status of the rebate?

I build up the nerve with one swipe when i buy something at the register, then head to CS to get the 14 additional swipes it takes to complete my 5 cards.
I have a friend that must buy something when he loads up. Hakaras hatov he says
