re: Car gurus: “Newly used” purchase - KingofZydeco
I bought a lightly used Jeep Wrangler that was a rental for about 1.5 years (23k mi). I got an excellent deal going used and saved about 12-13k off the new price. I was nervous about the rental deal, but more research made me more comfortable. ...

re: Is AT&T really that bad? - KingofZydeco
The problem comes in when you have issues. Actual cell service isn’t bad. I had issues with a BOGO iPhone deal that got screwed up and wouldn’t honor until I filed a BBB complaint. Luckily I had all the pertinent info documented and saved. ...

re: Getting started in home automation...suggestions needed - KingofZydeco
I personally would keep my alarm system old school for monitoring, but tie in the Konnected board for automation. SmartThings has a home monitor program, but it’s has its flaws (relies on internet connection). ...

re: Getting started in home automation...suggestions needed - KingofZydeco
Not sure of your home alarm system, but I’d highly recommend looking into Konnected. They sell a DIY kit that taps into your existing home alarm wired sensors and makes them “smart”. You can view all the sensors on the Samsung SmartThings app. I think it’s compatible with other platforms, but I use ...

re: mortgage interest rates - KingofZydeco
I tested the waters about a year ago and my current mortgage holder (Wells Fargo) could only drop the rate about 0.4% then. I kind of forgot about it until the recent news of the rate drops. I hadn't realized how far they have dropped over the last 12 months. ...

re: Anyone bought from crescent ford? - KingofZydeco
I just bought a Jeep from them a couple weeks ago... 2019 Sport S ... 21k mi. They advertised rock bottom prices but offered me about 2-2.5k less trade in for my old car than other dealers. I ended up selling FSBO, so that wasn’t a deal breaker. They also tried to tack on some BS “transport”...

re: HSA / FSA Married Couple Question - KingofZydeco
I did some more research and found this.... [quote]If your spouse has an individual policy and no other insurance and you are otherwise qualified (see above), you are eligible to have an HSA. However, if your spouse participates in an FSA you would not be eligible for an HSA. The reason for this ...

re: Lighting solution (wireless) - KingofZydeco
I’d probably do smart bulbs and control with Alexa. I’m sure there are ways to do a physical switch, but that’s a lot of trouble. Personally, I’d revisit running hardwire. Resale value plus it be easy to operate for the non-tech folks. ...
