They're giving me a gift card for the full retail value of my laptop bag toward a replacement.

 

There are two that I'm considering, and they're +$50 and +$150.  

 

I'm going to pick one out in person at the Fashion Valley store on Friday.

 

I share the tendency to take advantage of a loss reimbursement to "upgrade". 

 

In 1993, living in the heart of Philly, our home was broken into on the first floor while we were asleep on the third floor.  Fortunately, they went for the A/V equipment in the living room and ran (apparently).  Our "watch" cats blissfully slept through the incident with us on the bed.

 

I provided our insurance make/model numbers and the claims adjuster offered up equivalent replacement equipment.  I inquired whether I could "buy up", paying the difference and was told I could.  When I priced out the desired upgrades, I was thrilled to find out I was entitled to mfr invoice pricing.  What should have cost an increment of over a $1000 at the time wound up costing just 40% of that; some of the higher end stuff has some steep incremental retail pricing.

"Member Deals" offers from Navee Fedrul. 

 

One of the offers interested me, so I clicked to see it.  Link went to NF's login page. 

 

Tried to log in with my ID/password, they wanted 2FA also.

 

Got the text message and entered it.  Selected the option to remember by browser for next time.

 

Logged in successfully, but I was taken to my account summary page rather than to the offer.  

 

Logged out and tried another link in the email.

I thought I was set with a hotel for three nights in Orange County next week, but it's apparently been so long since I've booked work travel that I can't remember how.

I'm greatful I don't have to use Concur or similar.

Doesn't make a lot of difference to me. 

 

What I value most is the ability to pay with the personal credit card of my choice.

 

So far over my long tenure with this company I've gotten away with ignoring polite requests to get a corporate credit card, but before everything got shut down I was getting some signals that those days may truly be numbered.  I don't know anyone else who still does this.

 

For several years I got an annual call from a sweet woman in corporate accounting named Marcy, who'd explain to me that it was unfair for me to front personal funds when I'm traveling on behalf of a publicly-traded company with deep pockets. 

 

I'd thank her, and then she'd email me a corporate card application... which I'd immediately delete.

I'm lucky. We don't use any outside expense management booking programs. We have a customized Oracle application for our expense reports and that's it. We have some spending amount policies in place though. We book however we want to, and use our own credit cards.

 

If they ever decided to stop us from using our own cards, then I might as well shutdown half of my credit card portfolio.

I hope you got this squared away. 

 

If one was forced to use only company credit cards would that possibly mean forfeiting reward points?

The points/miles from the hotel/airline loyalty program for the stays/flights go to the traveler, but using a corporate credit card means no additional rewards for the spending.

email from an employer from whom I separated 25 years ago, "requesting" that I discontinue use of their AVIS AWD corporate discount code.

 

Sigh ... it has reliably saved me 15%-20% over the next best AWD code I can put my hands on.  I checked my AVIS account and the code has been removed from my profile.  Thanks for the memories ??

I feel your pain. Years ago I used to get a discount on Marriot stays, thanks to Raytheon...............I never worked for Raytheon.

Sync keeps hounding me to go paperless.

 

If IRC, occasionally Citi, upon login, is immediately popping up a window listing my accounts, each with a check mark indicating I want to "go paperless".  The button to proceed merely says "Continue". 

 

I suppose one could uncheck each box and select "Continue", but it's easier to just click on the "X" at the top right to close that pop-up.

 

I grasp the motivation for them to aggressively push "paperless" and the my eco-friendly alterego cheers them on.  Unfortunately, no email is going to grab my attention as a prompt to review statement charges the way a hard statement in the mail does.  I continue to take a pass.

Well my car insurance automatically changed me to paperless without allowing me the option. Big pain in the arse when I forgot to have my new policy printed at the UPS store (don't have a printer) and I was at the car dealership awaiting a free rental for the day. I didn't have the latest policy and had to jump over loops to clear it up.

      REMINDER!
      Account Status 05 (Account transferred)
      to become obsolete for reporting
      Effective April 2022
       
      As noted within Exhibit 4 (Account Status Codes) in the Credit Reporting Resource Guide (CRRG®) since 2020, Account Status 05 (Account Transferred) will become obsolete for reporting in April 2022.
       
      Refer to the Transferred category within Exhibit 6 for a list of Special Comment Codes that should be used instead of Account Status 05. Refer to Frequently Asked Question & Answer 46 for guidance on reporting transferred accounts, and to Frequently Asked Question & Answer 47 for guidance on reporting sold accounts.
       
      All guidance that relates to accounts being transferred or sold has previously been updated to advise that the Account Status should be reported as of the time of transfer or sale so no further updates will be made to existing CRRG® FAQs (46 & 47) as a result Account Status 05 being retired.
       
      The Metro 2® Task Force recommends that data furnishers transition away from reporting Account Status 05 as soon as possible.
       
      If there are any questions, please e-mail metro2info@cdiaonline.org.
       
      Thank you,

      ·     Use of Special Comment Codes to identify the “transferred’ condition
      ·     FAQ #46
