Just Shmooze / Landlord Issue
« on: August 24, 2012, 09:39:06 AM »
So my co-worker (non Jewish) was renting an apartment somewhere in Brooklyn from a Frum (Jewish) landlord. Unfortunately, the landlord wax extremely dishonest in a lot of his dealing and attempted to cash rent checks that he said were lost (so my coworker had written new ones).
At this point, the coworkers lease expired and left the apartment 60 days ago. He has yet to get back his security deposit ($2900)  despite repeated calls, emails and letters to the landlord. I can not understate how embarrassing this is for me and how much of Chillul Hashem this man is making. All day he is complaining (rightfully) about how Orthodox Jews are supposed to be honest etc. and instead he is getting a complete runaround.
I am looking for suggestions and opinions on this. Should I try and intervene? Call a Rav in the neighborhood to have him help? All suggestions are welcome.

Credit Cards / Transferring UR points
« on: August 08, 2012, 03:04:58 PM »
From other threads it seems that transferring points to friends (not a spouse, domestic partners, family member etc) is not allowed under the Chase rules. Has anyone had experience transferring points to/from a friend and had any issues from Chase?

General Discussion / Disability insurance

Please post or PM if you have specific questions.

Credit Cards / Help me pick a CC
« on: July 19, 2012, 11:39:46 AM »
I have searched the forums and have seen the various options available but was hoping to get advice on what people thought was best.
I current hold the following cards:
Amex SPG
Chase Saphire Preferred
Amex Blue Sky (Dont use, transferred credit line to my SPG)
Citi Diamond Preferred (my first card many years ago. I never ever use this).

Travel is second on my list of importance. I would rather have cash back/sell my miles. The Amex blue sky preferred would give me 6% cash back at grocery stores which is one of my largest expenses. I am hesitant to do this since I feel that I should have one Non-Amex that I hold in my wallet. The Chase Freedom is great and I could link it to my Checking account but the 4Q doesnt offer anything of interest. As someone previously posted, I cant expect my wife to hold 5-10 cards and remember to use a different one on her specific spending. I would like to use my  SPG for bigger expenses/electronics.
Thanks for the help!

General Discussion / Site Suggestion
« on: July 12, 2012, 03:51:38 PM »
Hey Dan,
Everytime I find a thread interesting hit the "notify" button. But honestly, its a little annoying to get the emails. Is there a way to have a sort of "follow" button and when I login to the site I can go into that section and see all the threads I'm following? Anyone else like this idea?
