re: Redbox is increasing fees again - TigerRob20
When Netflix first came out, Blockbuster started offering a mail in service that was coupled with in store returns (circa 2005). For the first few months, you could return your mail order movies to any BB store and get a movie from in the store for free. (for 2 or 5 days). I must have rented 30-40 m...

re: MSY Parking. USPark or Park N Fly? - TigerRob20
How much are the taxes/fees for USPark. $8.95 a day is the base amount, but what would be added to that? I don't think you can use the US Park $4/day coupon during the holiday, but I could be wrong. ...

re: Can you tv gurus tell me if this is a good deal/tv? - TigerRob20
I bought a Sony TVwith the same specs a year and a half ago for the same price. A refurb unit of the same TV you mentioned was avaiable on Amazon for $940 tonight. Looks pretty good to me. A Samsung TV will only stream stuff from a Samsung phone. You'll need an Apple TV for IOS devices. Eta....

re: Home audio system - paging hopeful doc - TigerRob20
If this is the start of the project, wire the speakers to a central location. That's not hard to do, and you can set up the speakers you want at that price point. After that, sonos is not a bad option and you could add additional components as needed. At the very least you would have everything ...

re: What's the best private school in EBR/W. Ascension? - TigerRob20
Dunham is probably close to 12k by now. Edit [link=(http://www.dunhamschool.org/files/Fee_Schedule.pdf)]LINK[/link] Yep, I was right. Don't forget all the fees and food, which bump it up another ~2k. I went to Dunham. Great school FWIW, with a friendly environment. But anyone who went/go...

re: Should I Get another Credit Card, SWA Rapid Rewards? Will it hurt credit score - TigerRob20
Get a personal and a business card when they offer the 50k points bonus. If you hit the spending mark after the first of the year and earn the 100k points in 2015, you will only need 10k more points (which you will already be almost halfway to with the spending needed to get the 100k bonus) to get t...

re: Sonos and alternatives for basic wireless audio - TigerRob20
You can have outdoor speakers hooked up to a Sonos connect. The internal Amp drives speakers without needing a receiver. [link=(http://www.amazon.com/SONOS-CONNECT-Wireless-Streaming-Amplifier/dp/B001CROHU4/ref=pd_sim_e_1?ie=UTF8&refRID=0NG58VYJPWCFAPPMV3MB)]LINK[/link] Obviously you can get ...

re: help choosing some pots and pans - TigerRob20
If that is your budget, go with All Clad. Get one of their box sets and a few saucepans to go along with it. If you have some extra leftover, get a nice 8-12 qt stock pot. I have a set similar to this: [link=(http://smile.amazon.com/All-Clad-Stainless-Tri-Ply-10-Piece-Cookware/dp/B004XC1SAC/r...

re: So, I'm in the process of planning out my media closet. Help me please. - TigerRob20
If you want to play music with different zones throughout your house, I highly recommend Sonos instead of a zoned receiver. It works incredibly well and allows easier control of your music and rooms via an iOS or Android device. While the new stuff may seem expensive, you can pick up older compo...

re: So, I'm in the process of planning out my media closet. Help me please. - TigerRob20
For my setup, there is one HDMI from the TV to the receiver in the closet. I also ran Ethernet to the TV, which also terminates in the closet, but only for future needs. If you have access to the wall behind the TV, I would suggest installing a removable panel that makes it a little easier to change...

Those SW cards contribute to companion pass status, where you can get BOGO free flights for up to two calendar years (if earned correctly).
