re: Buying a Car - Question - BeaumontBengal
During my search, I showed one dealership an offer another dealership gave me with the other dealership’s logo on the offer. I think they were trying to see if I was lying or not. They couldn’t match it and they politely let me know I had a good offer and that was that. I do not think any back ch...

re: Buying a Car - Question - BeaumontBengal
You should only have your best interests in mind. Get the best honest offer you can. I just did this a week ago. Got 20% off MSRP and below invoice. It was a 2017 vehicle. Be sure to put a payment down on credit card to hold the vehicle after price is agreed upon. I had a colleague agree...

Windshield replacement with Safelite or dealership? - BeaumontBengal
I cracked my windshield today. Crack is fairly large and grew over the day so it likely needs to be replaced. The windshield has technology in it such as heads up display, rain sensor, and adaptive cruise control sensor. I’d prefer to have the windshield replaced at the dealership because of all ...

re: O'brien has cost the Texans a couple of wins this year - BeaumontBengal
I’m not surprised about running the ball on third and 4, but they could’ve used one of their timeouts at the end when it was obvious their defense wasn’t set up correctly. Could’ve called it just before the Seahawks snapped the ball....

re: The top 1% of Americans now control 38% of the wealth - BeaumontBengal
[quote]425,000ish[/quote] Income and wealth are not the same. A newly graduated physician can have a high salary but is $250,000 in debt, leaving him with negative wealth. Nonetheless he pays significant amounts of taxes and is made a villain because of his "wealth."...

re: What is it about the Iowa Hawkeyes? - BeaumontBengal
I only caught the end of tonight, but historically their emphasis on the running game shortens the game and they're always above average on the lines. Not sexy at all but allows them to compete with teams that are more talented and explosive....

re: Can someone explain how charging for ER "facilities" and ER "physician services" works? - BeaumontBengal
So your gripe is not price gouging as you've referenced multiple times in this thread. Sounds like you haven't met your deductible. I'd expect to be billed out of pocket until you reach your deductible....
