General Discussion / Re: Car Lease Master Thread
« on: January 13, 2019, 02:42:35 PM »
This is kind of the wrong thread to post in, but I’m looking to BUY a car, preferably in the 14k-15k range. A full size car like a Camry or Accord, maybe 2-3 years old. I was thinking that my best bet would be to buy out someone’s lease when they’re done, does anyone know how that works?
 Is my assumption wrong, that I would get the best deal by buying out a lease?
Any advice is greatly appreciated! TIA
Car auction prob your best bet.

Do you think with Amex ,a better chance is with a credit card and not a charge card?
Don't really have experience with new accounts on amex,

My daughter has been an AU on my Chase Unlimited and Amex Gold(PRG) for 5 years, she is 18 now and in college,Amex has her SSN but Chase never asked for SSN, will this hinder a Chase approval? Or better try Amex Everyday or a charge card? If I go with Chase I think Freedom is the easier to get approved for.
Out of all their cards freedom will be the easiest since they will approve with low cl

Yes. They just put the points back, and Charge your card again. I did it many times.
Ok thanks

Interesting...
I booked 5 tickets in econ with LOT on amex travel with cash, and on the confirmation email it says "congratulations, this flight qualified to receive a 35% airline bonus" (but i didn't book with points) so i called amex and they told me that yes indeed it does qualify but since it was a cash ticket i have to wait 48h and call back to switch it to points so i can get 35% back.
Anyone had anything similar?
And is it worth switching to a points ticket and taking the risk that they might not honor it because there is no reason they should.

at first 100h seems like a joke but in reality many people do 72h regularly. whats one more day? ;D
It is just trying make a point that doesn't matter how long u do it wont raise the temp.

Not exactly, the lower the temp the less tender it'll be it needs the higher temp to break everything down, although it will b more meater if u do lower temps but not as tender.
U can do 131 for 100h it won't reach 155 because that's what sous viding does.

The higher temp with smoking/oven is to break down collagen. You can easily go 131, you just need more time to break it down. That's the beauty of sous vide. You can have every piece of meat med-rare and be not only safe but soft as butter!

I usually do 142 for 50/55. I want to do 131 but I had lactobacilluous so I’m nervous
Brisket needs to be at high temp its not like reg steak that u can do at 129-140. when i smoke my briskets ill try to reach minimum of 195 200, so the  muscle and fats can  breakdown in order for it to be tender.

I'm new to sous vide,after sitting on the sidelines for a couple of months decided to hop in.
 I did a brisket on 140° for 40 hours and seared with a torch.seasoned with just black pepper,kosher salt,pink salt,and a dash of liquid smoke.
taste was great but more on the dry side(to begin with,the meat was already trimmed and had very little fat)    any tips?
I've done 155 for 55h came out delicious.
