re: What purchases per month do you put on your credit card? - Teddy Ruxpin
[quote]CapitalOne Venture. It’s 2% back of all purchases regardless of category, but it will only pay the 2% as a reimbursement of travel expenses, which is the only way I redeem points. If you want a true cash back, it’s only 1%. There’s also a $99/yr fee. There’s probably slightly better deals out...

re: 53 years ago today, iconic Ali/Liston picture taken - Teddy Ruxpin
I think I saw some thing about Hank Aaron that he was scared when those guys ran up to him as he said he had been receiving threats leading up to the record. Didn't know if they were friend or foe....

re: Seattle surpasses Austin as fastest growing big city - Teddy Ruxpin
In Austin, the suburbs are located in exactly that kind of area all over Lake Travis. Also, "suburb" may not even be the word to use anymore, as goods and services may decentralize from downtown making "burbs" more complete and not a "half and half" existence. It's really hard to tell what wil...

re: What purchases per month do you put on your credit card? - Teddy Ruxpin
Everything. I don't mind paying the $2 fee that wipes some value for things like electricity for one particular reason. Since pretty much all frequent flyer account transfers require moving points in 1,000 increments, there is nothing worse than having something like 49,975 points for a 50k ...

re: Seattle surpasses Austin as fastest growing big city - Teddy Ruxpin
I'm about 15 minutes from downtown. If I head 5-10 minutes closer I'd lose about 1000 SQ feet at same price. If I move about 10-20 minutes away I'd own a castle :lol:...

re: Hurt Shoulder - Teddy Ruxpin
I'm going to have to see a doctor myself. Shoulder area hurt one day. I don't think it's cuff because I had improvement and can move it around. I think it may be a nerve that finally became a bigger problem for me. Affects strength a bit because it feels weird. Tingling in last two fingers on ...

re: Seattle surpasses Austin as fastest growing big city - Teddy Ruxpin
We're going through a big city code overhaul right now. Austin has a lot of rules against density and the neighborhoods near downtown and major arteries are trying to keep it that way I think. I don't know how much longer South of the "lake" (it's a fricking river) is going to go without tall c...

[quote]Other cities like Nashville, DFW, Austin, Hou, etc. have suburbs exploding and outpacing the big city. [/quote] Ya Leander is the fastest growing city "under" 50,000 people I think I saw in the paper today. It has likely already surpassed that. I believe it grew by 14% last year. Pfluge...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - Teddy Ruxpin
They just keep sending you mailers? I'm well aware of 8/65 so I'm just curious if you're hitting a public offer over and over or the mailer over and over since they've apparently removed 24 month language. I'll have to pay attention to mine if that's the case. I got my wife under 5/24 to doubl...
