to make things worse the bank issued a new card but have no idea where they will send it, now they are trying to figure that out and get back to me next week... they are pretty much the worst with cc's
xhlvaxnn5d
wow, that sounds like quite an overkill ... at least my bank tries to call me before doing something like that ๐Ÿ˜ž
xgchpjttv5d
thatโ€™s stupid, why not just lock/block the card temporarily? โ€ฆ due to things like this with Swiss banks as well, I switched to a combo of Revolut (receives salary) and N26 and bunq accounts (each gets parts of salary) and have not had an issue with any of them. N26 even gave me a nice overdraft credit after a year of regular income transfersโ€ฆ I would not suggest to keep just one account but I might be a bit paranoid as well
fboniekcrwmppk4d
yeah they couldn't say why it was just reissued and not blocked. it's my primary bank but I do have revolut,transferwise,paypal and two other traditional bank accounts as well so not the end of the world. just seriously inconvenient
axsotctw4d
yyvntkozxeiiqrw maybe the "prince" in the name triggered some anti-401 nigerian prince scam detection ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
siknguyff4d
whynjqqlygdliqr sounds like you need Revolut
hnyyugcqivjuep4d
I have one but it's not a credit card so I don't usually use it for online purchaces etc. but yeah, I'm doubling the amount of my cc's while i'm visiting finland
cagpwwomq4d
Cool, mine works for any online purchase too and they have 3dsecure/verified now
lkihwwectvmazn4d
but usually hotels and such want a true CC, haven't actually ever tried it with airline and hotel bookings, got it when it came out mainly for cash withdrawals
xvtfevjgp4d
I always use it for hotels via Agoda or directly, always works
wbngdhasg4d
Only thing is on checkin they ask for a real credit card for deposit and they'll say it's a debit card but if you tell them to try anyway they'll be able to put a hold on there too
umxoegukk4d
So it's like a debit card w/ credit features
lgeqodbui4d
Airline bookings use 3dsecure/verified visa whcih also works with Revolut now with FaceID on iPhone
uvuvaeuz4d
zehhkbgtzo yea I love having a Visa debit. Benefits of CC, without the downsides (so far)
tnbbipunu4d
Iโ€™m sure this has come up beforeโ€ฆ but anyone ever use temporary ongoing tickets? Like onewayfly.com|onewayfly.com?
fgcydgykw4d
A bit reluctant to use one but also most airlines seem to hide if their 100% refund is with credits or back to original payment method
qrnjtidv4d
xdktbseqvd if you buy through American site like expedia or Travelocity etc they often show a โ€œ24 hour refundableโ€ period on certain tickets, possibly American airlines.. so you can book a flight right before going to checkin counter and then cancel it after you get through immigration on the other side
wfuecjolz4d
Ok, Iโ€™ll check the โ€œ24 hour refundableโ€ thing right now. Lately Iโ€™ve been booking directly on the airline site and itโ€™s sometimes hard to find the refund info
pshrltfpb4d
For now itโ€™s an ongoing from Australia to somewhere (hoping New Zealand)
qhzswdnla4d
Oh I see the โ€œFree Cancellationย within 24 hours of booking!โ€œโ€ฆ just will need to double check if they also refund or just allow to cancel (no refund) for free
jmteehcn4d
nckfgvhehr yeah the free cancellation is what I meant, sometimes they donโ€™t even bill the credit card itโ€™s just prequalified but charge doesnโ€™t happen till after 24 hrs
otukpiad4d
Make sure you see the free cancelation message on the final booking page before you confirm
icpmjnrsniahsr3d
first time I looked a BA eticket in more detail, one extra bag (23kg) would cost ยฃ140, wtf?! not like I need it as I got 4x32kg already but that's just crazy
sfjlqbkdy3d
Why u ppl still fly BA since u all seem to hate it?
uteiowmdizagvo3d
because the FFP is still the best available on OW so I have loads of avios and upgrade vouchers. And BA F is not _that_ bad, it's just bad compared to a real F products like on LH/SQ/EK/LX/CX etc.
ujhyfqbfdyk3d
how tf are you getting four x 32?
oxaorgtdgkr3d
cubhabw3d
I was able to book a r/t flight from SFO to BCN for 240 per person, but didn't realize it was on Level until after I paid. Seat selection and bags are $110 per person on top of it but I still think it is a good deal
qbxelliaysdrvow3d
hvyhcxivefnr two with the fare, two as OWE is my guess
swmqxnvyjhcyje3d
brmeeiizvoeg F ticket grants 3 and OWE +1
xetrjy3d
Wonder if it would be worth adding the Expedia/Travelocity trick to the Slackbot onward ticket message to save having to add this note each time ๐Ÿ™‚
rfvhunlohjdhfy2d
OWE +1? On all OW partners or just BA?
dqngcmxt2d
tabprfxtgr salary to revolut? thats a complete no go for me. Revolut is the one that blocks accounts for months.
vfbtsiggbavhcv2d
+1 on all airlines in OW network (not including some light fares), same for OWS and OWE
pvtwpeuszqkcmui2d
Isle of Man provide their register of Data Protection Officers as a 2,476 page PDF document
gcsqdyozzhtqxtk2d
On the other hand, I did just get a phone call 45 seconds after Iโ€™d submitted the TypeForm on their website from the Information Commissioner herself, telling me Iโ€™d filled it out wrong, and you donโ€™t get that from HMRC
pxaqymddrxlboty2d
Doing business in IOM has been a lot of conversations like my accountant saying โ€œIโ€™m not sure about the law on that but Iโ€™ll ring Dave up because heโ€™s the Minister of Finance this year so he should knowโ€
tpgyhsnpioltho1d
sounds like my kind of place
axtecuxlex1d
Proper!
slxvtyadqncps1d
who doesnt love a good crosswind landing video www.youtube.com/watch?v=I473iDkCIYE&feature=youtu.be&t=35
zyzwxqepfxhpswa1d
You need to make sure you tag toyxeiudjvcq in these
qbutnyiajqeaqy1d
I don't really mind crosswind landings or aborted ones but there has been a couple of times where the wing tip has been closer to hitting to the ground than the wheels when ~50m in the air, landing at seychelles come to mind
moubyydantkmsof1d
Jesus, I just spent five minutes on Twitter and now I feel dirty
guphlfqqhtpbehj1d
Apparently calling someone a Bernie Bro is
now a racist slur
ftcpnumnowfcege1d
Anyway, no more Twitter this year I think
zhdbyojpajpkgx1d
I use it about twice a year to reach some companies customer service. It's really surprising that you can schedule a time with Burberry CS to get a button re-sewn via Twitter.
mwnswvxuyyktyxc1d
The only social media I use is instagram and twitter but I must admit that it is super easy to get involved in garbage conversations or at least be exposed to them via twitter. I work to cut those out of my feed but sometimes I find myself looking at them (like above). The last 2 years I've become really vigilant on social media for my own personal health
qoxssyeyxbsqtlx1d
I have found Instagram to be a happy place
gjifoqrzt1d
hxzqfokmtivmmktp Twitter is absolutely F'd
rykjhsoqs1d
Anything you tweet you either get corrected, picked on, pulled into a fight or cancelled
gsjeherxi1d
And then sometimes you meet rly cool ppl on it but lesser so
whzujvtlf1d
Virtue signaling on Twitter is intolerable now too
aadeuqpkw1d
Then again Instagram makes me depressed
yplvfdpvuqhddlw1d
Yeah but the reality is that I don't use it that much for actual communication and most of the accounts I follow are not even people I really know. So I don't run the risk of learning something terrible about someone that I actually like. Most people don't need a microphone, and they have trouble handling being vocal. Too easy to be judgemental and that goes both ways
qzzkrorvucrofzu1d
why depressed? zwzcicvyps
btffmxjpb1d
Actively trying to avoid that Twitter vibe coming over to this Slack btw
binuekmvo1d
Like Instagram is too perfect
ztrcxxlrcmvctbr1d
I'm pretty good at recognizing it's not real life or at least a certain angle of real life so I don't really get into the whole comparison thing but I know it exists and I have before.
tfligbfwi1d
Too edited
folechwcd1d
Fake
vzvhlvvrn1d
Twitter is at least real
ulllgtcmvcmivkq1d
agreed
yczmvvrgh1d
FB is old people
sebtpmpba1d
Snapchat is young ppl sexting
cppqnqpmvwdkizt1d
I try to only follow accounts that are interesting on Instagram. Too fake and I lose interest
sqpyfxccnvhajku1d
never got into snapchat
qnbgpyubk1d
I mute maybe 5-10 people per day on Twitter or thousands per year to keep it usable I'm not exaggerating ๐Ÿ˜‚
zknrzbfbanostqm1d
The big issue for me with Twitter is politics. I try to stay out but I slip and engage sometimes and I'm like "why" afterwards
pdongjgkyrayry1d
yeah, totally agreed with FB and old people, dropped it and now pretty much only on IG but still very inactive, never have understood tiktok snapchat and the other "cool" stuff
fobanizqtldteis1d
It's a new world and my 11 year old nephew has a whole online social scene very different from mine. It's just how it is and always will be. Kids don't want old people shit lol
stwplodeb1d
rndwdbqvuqjxnjir yep they make everything political on Twitter and you can't say anything right
nqyruphwg1d
I have 70k followers so it's a bit crazy
ajqkleewzjhlfkt1d
I bet. Brings out the crazy
dvxepcnfl1d
It's been rly fun and helped my career etc though
bdrjwwjfn1d
But the fights man....
pmsiuudbvxaxfke1d
Yeah it's been very useful throughout the years tbh
uirebnbysjxiluv1d
Just like any tool, it can be used for positive and negative. Just have to understand it and yourself but that does not make it easy
beteueocc1d
Yeah problem is with Twitter, you can say something fun and innocent, it gets misread and you get doxed and fired
ifkycrglqi1d
Iโ€™m all down with the TikTok these days
jztdebcwtn1d
Literally just stupid shit
votfeacayopmpji1d
I think thatโ€™s how I feel about Instagram
ndchkwsebrzxlig1d
Itโ€™s purely and obviously just entertainment
puvdifwaqg1d
An example
vszvcjumkvpmmqqp24h
I just removed all accounts that don't belong to people I've interacted with and now my twitter is much better
odlocldvcc23h
I was wasting too much time on Twitter
geyjepyzgf23h
Unfollowed everyone
gppazzjmxo23h
Now I donโ€™t use it
lsxmilac23h
From time to time you find some ๐Ÿ’Ž on twitter twitter.com/HeathenOnEarth_/status/1228933067928195072
sxxsypmjjjiwcff10h
I should do a mass unfollowing on twitter. Have not cleaned out any followers for quite sometime. It could make things more interesting after pruning.
ohvjfbmgs3h
jilewoxme nice clip but that tweet is exactly the problem of Twitter, it's all politics from one side or the other, either left or right
gfsthicio3h
And everything is pulled into politics
mgdvyyaof3h
Not even real politics that actually changes stuff by the way it's about US presidents and presidential candidates, while the real power is with congresses/senates/parliaments not just in the US but worldwide.
hmwyjdsss3h
Or virtue signaling mobs of people getting someone fired while changing little at all
spkzxkrga3h
Nothing constructive about any of that
ndltqjrbe3h
IMHO
utogroefzaoxmajt3h
i'm so happy i stopped following things other than people i know
qkmuehnkzyibenyj3h
twitter is a much happier place for me now
vqrceugq2h
qlkeiykdmu got you. Im not following twitter enough to actually judge it that way or another.
mgsjnlho2h
But i understand your concerns with it.
