If you want to be gauranteed an amazing job on the sit, go to Phil K on second street. He can literally cut apart a suit and put it back together and it will come out perfect
Dominik in Jackson is very expensive but he knows what he's doing. I've used him before for complicated stuff that I wouldn't trust the regular Asian cleaners with.

Anyone have experience with ATT prepaid in Lakewood. I have Total Wireless which uses Verizon but service in Lakewood is TERRIBLE!
Depends where in lkwd. In Raintree, everything is terrible, except Verizon which is alright. Besides Raintree I never seem to have an issue with Verizon.

Worth a lot more than $2150 for MS70.
True. So you're saying people are gambling $750 on the <1% chance that the coin is worth $7,500+?

100%, one more thing , coins graded MS69 or PF69 Ultra Cameo and anything below are not worth any premiums, only the MS 70 and PF 70.
Any premium?????
People are paying $2150 for this coin on eBay when it's sealed. You're saying they're betting it's an MS70?

Interesting. The day is really kosher; itís just srach bitah from what I remember. One would think earlier than 50 should be ok...
-.5

IIRC
As soon as the seventh day starts, it's miktzas Hayom k'kulo and shiva nikkiyim are over and she can go M'dioraysa. However the Rabanan were worried a lady will go, then come home, then be with her husband during the day, and then see blood and then L'mafrya she never had a clean 7 days.
So they said no Tvila by day.
(I'm not sure why the usual rule "milsa dlo shchicha lo gazru ba rabanun doesn't apply)

I did a drop of research.. there's no question that said project needs to be done. Nice that they're trying to at least pretend to minimize the impact, but I'm not convinced it won't be a disaster full few months.. seems silly not to add more rooms..

Just seeing this now, It seems everyone agrees the only solution is to anticipate that demand will grow and start building more BEFORE you need it.

In the meantime, one band-aid hasn't been discussed:
How many minutes after shkiya will the Lakewood Mikvahs allow someone to go?
Maybe we can have Sfardim go before Ashkenazim, as they hold you can start earlier. This will free up more appointments throughout the night.

On a separate note, I'm not a Rav, but if the alternative is 1AM, or pushing off to the next night, there may be room for leniency in starting closer to shkiya.

i personally stick with my buyer no matter the commission wars altz hakaras hatoiv.
just pointing out though, that were the price to plummet you can return it to the mint...
True, but you don't get the shipping back and you pay the cots of return shipping, which can cost a bit if you ship insured.
Better than a $100+ loss, not as good as getting the CC spend and the $50 commish.

It's a tough call. Because what if the value of the coin were to plummet to $1200?
Everyone would still expect PFS, USA, MYS and everyone else to honor their price to those who committed. It's a two way street.
If PFS matches was one guy, they have to match for everyone else. Though I still think they should up it for ppl that ask.

8X next week on HAPPY GC, wonder if they work at other stores besides their designated ones.

221
Today at S&S my coupons scanned but did not give any discount.
But when I entered a dif phone number it gave me the discount.
It seems that even though you can buy more than 10 BB GC with your S&S card and get more than 10 coupons, you can't actually use more than 10 coupons per account.
Anybody experience otherwise?

Got a whole bunch of clawbacks there as well
Let's not call these clawbacks. If you earn MR points and they claw them back before you use them, that's a clawback. These are "we're gunna charge you cuz we gave you credits we didn't wanna give you.

We paly these games to get around the T&C's. Then when we get caught we cry like babies. Take the hit and just move on.
-1000
It's one thing to claw back points that haven't been redeemed or if someone bought the GC from staples and the credits didn't post.
But this is a whole new ballgame. Imagine if WF suddenly charged you for all you made off them.
Something tells me you would be crying like a baby :)

+1. I stand to lose nothing, and this is still making me quite nervous.
+1000
This means you really never know. SBS, Smart & Final, probably $10k of PGGMs, plenty of signup bonuses I wasn't eligible for... Who knows if they'll assign a cash value to them and just charge it?
I personally am not just gunna shut all my amex cards but this definitely sets a bad precedent.
