Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are willing to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

The next person who mentions the UPS method should be taken out back and shot mercilessly.

One other thing I've 'reposted' before.
National Grid in NY, charges only $2.50 for a cc payment of $600. If you heat your home with gas, prepay for the winter.  Of find a family member or friend who'll let you pay their bill-( but collect the cash payment from your friend immediately.)

Do they send refund checks?

Yep Yep. You sure it isn't $2? I think thats what I paid. More importantly, even via check or bank account I believe they charge a service fee.

Have been using this for a long time! :)

I don't believe so but just pay it for your parents ;)

I think here is a pretty decent place to sell
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

90%. You will do better on eBay or something as far as sale price coming out closer to or above face value, but idk if it's really better.

If my AMEX AU cards are already on my main account login, and I can't create it's own login now,do I remove them first? How would I do that? Want to get the Amazon offer.

Take it off the new account & add it to the other one.

You can still remove it. It will just end the account it currently is under.

Here
Not helping me. The AUs don't show up on that page, only the cards for the account holders. I need to remove the secondary cards on the account, that link doesn't let me.
