Some prefer a honest broker that has the cash to back up the deal, always responds to emails within half an hour pays within a matter of hours with cash/ chase qp or a check-wtvr you ask, does not abuse your accounts (make twenty transfers in and out of your UR account) and is not a professional drei kop.
IME its not worth always haggling for a couple of bucks extra. Sometimes your doing a deal for thousands of bucks...you wanna deal and trust a yeshivishe drey/k kop?? Whats preventing him from forgetting to pay you...etc
Only shocking part of this post is "Location: Lakewood". Sounds like a glitch. Your rant is quite the opposite of what I've experienced in that formally Jewish city

Call any of the 10 brokers that advertise on the bmg bulletin board (or in the voice etc) and not one of them will give you those rates.

Then you're not getting top dollar.

There is plenty of competition in this field in lkwd, so its hard for anybody to be paying too low.

Call any of the 10 brokers that advertise on the bmg bulletin board (or in the voice etc) and not one of them will give you those rates.
+1
I did and besides his united rates. he is right on amex 1.5 or chase ur 1.8 is very accurate.
-1 unless you are calling Slomow.
and even he is not giving 1.8
All prices came down in the past few weeks.

Its just someone trying to bump up the prices.

Now every guy in lkwd is gonna call his broker and say " I saw a sign in bmg that says. . . ".

There is no set amount. If a broker needs miles now, he will pay a little more, rather if he doesn't.

If you don't like the prices go somewhere else. I personally would go to someone I trust, when dealing with this.

True. People are free to shop around but no one is "stealing from you" if he doesn't give as much as the next guy.   ::) ::)
Maybe he sells to that next guy and the tiny difference is his whole profit!  ;) ;)

I thought your post over there was quite ridiculous. When you and everyone on DDF take advantage of elals price mistake and thousands of other ways to milk companies its ok. But when Lakewood people do it en masse it magically turns into abusing the system and a chilul hashem. 

Nice double standard you have there.

Not really. When people take advantage of free bonuses (which are given away willingly, to entice customers) or airline price mistakes (which the DOT enforces, because the onus is on the airline to triple-check before publishing), that's fine. Those are "deals".

But when I hear stories of how people buy an air conditioner for the summer, and then return it when the summer is over (just before 90 days are up), jokingly referring to Walmart as their "gemach", that makes me cringe. And when Walmart gives me the third degree when trying to make a legitimate return, because "sorry for the hassle, sir, but people in this area have been abusing our return policy" (true story!), that downright pisses me off.

And let's not forgot how Amex offer matching got killed in no small part by the wise guys who took out full-page color ads offering $1600 for signing up for a Plat, while shamelessly ripping off Dan's instructions for getting matched to 100k, word-for-word, with no credit or compensation to him whatsoever...

I was not aware of the Wal-Mart etc, but makes sense considering...
let's ignore the whole getting grants, gemach trafficking, etc.

I'm talking people being dishonest with me, and (trying) to rob me.

the proportion I've had of the latter surpassed by far any other group or people I've dealt with.

i unfortunatLY got to hear that so,many people have the same issues.....

some people really abused this one.
I asked the woman at returns if I could get a GC instead of putting it back on my Amex because I closed that one already
and I got an earful about "People in this Area" returning GCs for Cash!

It was when I drily expressed "surprise" (not!) upon hearing that this story happened in Lakewood, that yeshivaman attacked me. So it's not such a far cry at all.

I followed that thread well.

Taking advantage of a loophole like that to the point where the employees take notice, is not called a "deal". It's called "abusing the system".

If it's a loophole, it sounds like you meant to say that its something ethical. If so, why the double standard? But let's say you are referring to something unethical (in your opinion). I believe that if an act is unethical it doesn't matter whether you're the only one doing it or if everyone is doing it. You're abusing the system, causing a chillul hashem, and doing something repugnant. You are bashing "Lakewood" for something that people do all over. You can't hold society responsible, when it's a bunch of individuals making their own decisions. You believe that Lakewood people must think to themselves, "maybe I shouldn't do this because everyone is doing it?", but Brooklyn people don't need to worry about that, because in Brooklyn their acts are less noticeable?

In effect you are saying that pulling shtick is OK as long as you know that nobody else is doing it, which I think is quite dumb.
