Can you get an edu from bmg?
Close to impossible..

Does anyone know if chometz can be bought from S&S?
Most are recommended to wait until after Lag Baomer.. unless it's fresh bread..

I don't think that the OU following a psak of R Soloveitzik is a great example or a shock
Add R' Aron to this as well at least according to R Herschel Shacters teshuva regarding fish... I tried to confirm with Y(?)Shp.. (You can PM me if you're not sure who I'm referring to) he told me that he has heard this claim before but unfortunately the one & only person who can actually (& honestly) confirm this was niftar not too long ago..


2. Local food establishment supervision. This is a totally different story. The OU does have the standards and procedures, but in these cases it is much more dependent on the local Mashgiach and the owner of the establishment. I don't know what their standards and procedures are, but I'm sure they are quite transparent and can be asked. In this area they are not necessarily better or worse than others, they just have their standards. It's not common to have a dual supervision on a food establishment, but it's likely that in places where those exist, the OU might be relying on the other supervision for mashgiach hiring and oversight.

This is one particular area that ou is much better then most in regards to mashgiach timidi, who hires them etc..

In KCLs own words that their hasgacha is mainly on the person.. this whole thing kinda actually makes sense...

Did the same store work with non variable load?

not true
-1. I bought yesterday a bunch of BB variable and I got the coupon
It's possible it was store specific, cs told me they had a lot of of people try and it didn't work, I insisted they try it for me and didn't work either..

He was referring to amazon.
BB works fine.
I didn't qoute his post because I wasn't referring to Amazon. And no, bby only works for cards with actual denominations not the variable load

The variable reloads are not working either

Who does it inconvenience? think about it for a second.

If you are not a regular - do you want to chance that 3 year old information on GoDaven is correct?

Go Daven info happens to be very accurate, they recently revamped their site and is fantastic.
Over the last few weeks I found myself using it many times.  People who are semi- regulars but don't necessarily remember the exact times find it really helpful...

I believe BoA has web-based virtual CCs. Cap1 has a virtual CC Chrome plug-in that actually works reasonably well.
Re cap1 it's not available on the spark business card
