  1. FYI, deadline is 5/15 to update the Amazon biz account sign-in, it took two trys for it to update for me. - Primary Account Managers The Corporate Accounts Program allowed the use of identical sign-in credentials (e-mail address and password) for both personal and corporate account information. This capability will no longer be an option when the Corporate Accounts Program is concluded on May 15, 2011. Customers with an existing corporate account can continue to place orders and access their corporate account information until May 15. To continue placing orders using this account
  2. I checked my Chevron account online statement today to see the total due. I've had this account for years and my account is usually due on the 5th. Today I see they've changed the terms to 14 days, so now my account is a few days past due. I didn't see any notice of this. I opted-out of paper statements because they charge a $10 monthly fee for them. I usually only print out page one of the online statement. Just discovered there was an 'extra page' added to the end of the last statement that said the terms were changing to net 14. Sneaky way for Chevron to get a $10 late fee from many
  3. Good luck with that Riled, I'll keep watching for my status to switch from '25 days' to 'refund was authorized.' My DH has a part-time job with a school district and they only partially-paid him last month because of the California budget crisis. This is turning into 1983 again for us.

  5. Did anyone who filed their California 2008 return in late January or February get a refund yet? I filed 2/4 and am waiting for a direct deposit refund. FTB website says "Please allow up to 25 business days to receive your refund" for me. (It's only a little refund, but I could sure use it.)
  6. Now $455 was $1,000. I use this Chevron card a lot, oh well. (I was late once on a payment last fall, but less than 30 days late.)

  8. I've had good results using Bach Flower Rescue Remedy. You can get it at Whole Foods or health food stores. It's in a tincture bottle. It contains some alcohol, as does valerian tincture so you need to dilute it, you don't want to burn their little tongues. I put a few drops on a teaspoon with some water, then carefully drip the water into her mouth. It may take a few tries, try from the side of her mouth. Or put Rescue Remedy drops in her water bowl. Good luck.
  9. Congrats, $19 annual fee ain't bad. I just got a $60 fee for a Cap1 card that's six years old. I called to complain about it, but the Indian cs rep wouldn't remove the fee, or I think that's what she said to me.
  10. Back before the BK law changes, I paid $600. I can't imagine not using a lawyer these days. Stop paying the CC payments and use the money for a good lawyer.I found the BK info on this attorney's website very useful. http://www.moranlaw.net/planning7.htm http://www.moranlaw.net/faq.htm
  11. BK 7 ain't that bad, the stress will lesson, you'll feel a lot better right away. You're wasting your money paying the high interest credit cards every month, health insurance is more important. In a few months, when you can't make the $3K payment, you'll start to get calls, lots of calls from the cc companies, it's grueling when that happens. Those settle for a 'fraction of the debt owed' radio ads are a scam. You need to BK. I'd assume all the equipment will be valued at garage-sale prices, not what you paid for it, so you'll get to keep everything and get a fresh start and just start over a
  12. "For customers of Bank of America . . . From 12/6/2000 Through 12/31/2007" I just submitted a claim, deadline is May 1, 2009.
  13. I just e-filed with the free TurboTax version last night, haven't gotten an email yet. I wonder if it takes longer if you file with the free version? Here is an IRS PDF that lists the e-file refund dates: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p2043.pdf
  14. It's been over 12 years since my two kitties have past away, I still miss them. If you're open to trying natural remedies, you could try putting a few drops of Bach Flower Rescue remedy in her water to see if this would calm her down.
  15. Wow, I can't believe your deadbeat absentee-landlord is trying to sue you. Search for your address on your county assessor's website. You may be able to find out some details about the property.
