Deals/Deal Requests / Re: Hoover factory sale- up to 80% off

It is a good sale.  Prices better than on amazon, though the boxes are damaged (doubt that's a big deal).
From CR:
Hoover has been reliable, not quite as good as Miele or LG.
Best upright a kenmore scores 74. The Hoover models and scores are below:

I just grabbed a 30600 for $79.
And yes, I know CR is not the end all, be all, but besides my own experience (still have a Hoover upright bought T Costco 16y ago that works fine, was about $40 then), what else is there to guide?

Good luck.

In-store and online. Not sure if stackable with anything else.

Promo code = FOOTBALL

Here's a link.  Also included attachment below.  Hope this is helpful for someone.

people don't have multiple bb accounts under their name. It's only 1 per ssn. People as well as myself use family and friends accounts which they don't care or sometimes don't even know what to do with  8)
Thank you.  I don't want them to grow up too fast, but sometimes I wish my children were age 18+.  ::)

I feel like you never read about easy, successful ATM experiences here. Why don't more ppl just use the cashiers?

People are more likely to write about difficult/bothersome experiences than when things go normally.  Lots of reasons for this "reporting bias".

Wow! Lots of issues in the East Coast. Not many doing it in my area in CA AFAIK, so may be why I've been successful at loading or just luck. I have 4 BB accounts so I'll test my $10k worth of OVs at a MP at 2 WMs along with financial services in the next few days. Was successful last week when I met the load limits for the month, so wish me luck.

Apologies if this is common knowledge, but I am interested to learn how someone can have 4 BB accounts.  I have two, but one is mine and one is my wife's.  Is it one BB account per Social Security #?  TIA.

Data point: I made a reservation on Priceline.  Called Avis to add the Wizard number. Agent told me that the price would be higher with the Wizard number,so he suggested just adding it at the counter for points. (I'm not sure he understood that I've already paid for it via Priceline.)

I am approaching 60 days since the AF posted on my Amex Plat.

I have charged the 3k spend and an additional $5500. I have done PGGM and GE.

I plan on telling them that I am canceling because the main reason I got it was for the no Foreign Transaction fee, and the same benefit is provided by the Delta Plat which I was just approved for and is much cheaper.

Is that a good strategy? What can I add?

Hi, I know what PGGM is, but what is GE? (I did check the Acronyms wiki.)  ???

Coupon worked for me, my wife and our three children... We fanned out across the store.  It didn't really "work", but the cashier or manager gave it to us.
