re: Is this banking behavior normal? Re: Holding check - Dead Mike
[quote]the OP has enough money in the account. As to your other comment, sure. But it is 2016. With Check 21 and all the electronic services out there, it's pretty hard to believe that banks still need 5-10 days to verify funds. Plus, if the check does end up being returned, your bank will charg...

re: Is this banking behavior normal? Re: Holding check - Dead Mike
[quote]Without too much fluff: Every time I deposit a check over $1,000 with Regions they try to put a hold on it - up to 7 days. This happens every two weeks, with nearly the same size check written from the same account. My normal branch overrides the hold but other branches wring their hands abou...

re: Taking the Old Man to Boston - Dead Mike
I'm headed to Boston, trying to stick to a modest budget. I definitely want to try a lobster roll and NE-style clam chowder, was considering Yankee Lobster Company for both but I'm also thinking about getting chowder at Neptune. Thoughts? ...

re: Best Crawfish Tail Meat - Dead Mike
I tested my luck with Chinese tail meat (Thibodeaux's) and the second time (Boudreaux's), it ruined an etouffee. I've been getting Bonanza tail meat (LA product) from Leblanc's and it's been great....

re: Things to do in Boston - Dead Mike
Going to Boston in a few months as well. Trillium Brewing will be a definite stop for me, although unfortunately I don't think they're able to run a taproom or anything at the Fort Point location. I was considering Harpoon Brewery as well, based on the responses here I may have to make that a defi...

re: Roth IRA advice. - Dead Mike
I haven't had the need to talk with anyone at Vanguard for years, but my one experience with their customer service department was excellent a few years ago. I had a Roth contribution and I wanted to recharacterize a portion of it, but - and maybe this is one flaw of theirs - reading their website ...

re: Need a small, short term loan. Any suggestions for where to get one? - Dead Mike
Unsure. Discover, for instance, might start you with a $500 limit as of a few years back. Capital One, from what I'm told, is pretty stingy with credit limits as well....

re: If you take out a 2 year installment loan from a lender, make two monthly - Dead Mike
Consecutive on-time payments is what generally carries the most weight in determining credit scores, so you won't have as many on-time payments as you would otherwise. Honestly not sure what marginal benefits having a paid off installment loan would have on your credit. I wouldn't worry about it, an...

re: Defeat the APRN Scope of Practice Expansion Attempt - Louisiana Senate Bill 187 - Dead Mike
I haven't read the entirety of the thread, so take my post with a grain of salt. While I agree with aspects of the OP's argument, I do question the fact that a specialist who does not work with midlevel providers is the vociferous advocate against expansion of midlevel provider freedom of practice. ...

re: Cashing a check with 2 names - Dead Mike
[quote]It seems like the best thing to do it sign for him, mobile deposit it and be done. Could there be repercussion for signing his name and trying to deposit it this way? Do they look at the checks that hard when they are mobile deposited?[/quote] I doubt that a human will look at the endorsem...

re: Cashing a check with 2 names - Dead Mike
Definitely don't sign his name on the check if you're planning to make a deposit in person. If they're following policy then they'll generally require the other individual to be present to verify the endorsement if they aren't on the deposit account....

re: FBD Monday Revolution - Dead Mike
[quote]Yeah. Just doesn't taste good to me. Not to mention the price. Twice as much as ghost for half the enjoyment. [/quote] I really liked the fresh G&G I had on tap a few weeks ago, and I just got a bottle at WF, but it was a little pricey for a 22oz bomber. ...

re: Does living in Boston area suck? - Dead Mike
[quote] Baton Rouge is an even smaller city with a lot of college aged people. I know Baton Rouge isn't as nice as Boston, but if that's what you are going for, there are a lot of towns like that that don't get as cold. [/quote] I think he meant small city in terms of footprint, in that Boston i...
