How would those who lost their homes have been able to rebuild without Costco? Thankfully it will be there to help.

The house I grew up in is 7.1 miles away from that costco, I remember when the Lowes went in and then the Costco in that location.

Yeah it actually looks like the fire's northernmost part is about 2 miles south of that house.

There is a grocery strike in my state right now. It has made me even more happy to be a church member, they're the only grocery type store that has seemingly treated their employees right and have taken the pandemic as seriously as :capitalism: allows. Wish they were a union shop, but the pay and bennies are close enough that they might as well be.

I think Costco's strategy is to treat their workers so well they don't want to unionize. Like there are costs to running a union, in theory "rational" businesses would calculate the cost of running a union for their employees, and then calculate out benefits and wages such that it doesn't make economic sense for their workers to unionize. But that is so obviously not what happens; it always makes me laugh when people refer to firms as rational "profit-maximizing" entities. And yes I mean rational in the technical economic sense.

Can someone just tell me the good credit card to use

The Costco card is good for gas and travel, not actually so good at Costco.

You can frequently get 5% on wholesale stores, but usually via rotating categories on some card.

If you combine that with executive membership that's 7% back.

If you use the Costco card at Costco, it only gives 2% back.

Has anyone ever like.. reversed their card situation. My mom has an exec membership and I didn't realize that meant she didn't get rewards for my spending. I am much more devout and go to church much more regularly, so I'm wanting to reverse the situation, I'll pay for the executive membership and she'll just get a free card.

But you know I've been a regular atendee for 14+ years, i want my hymnal to reflect my tenure.

Next time you're there you can stop by the membership desk to get the exact details on what they can do, but I'm fairly certain they can just switch you to be the primary person on the account. Your mom will probably have to go in there and officially take care of it herself though, since she's currently the primary on the account.

That's cool, do you think I can do it at a business center? I'm going up to Seattle to see her this weekend, I can just go to the one in Fife since there's no business center near PDX

Those croutons are terrible. Until I tried them I didn't know croutons that were anything but delicious even existed.

Go get a fresh baguette loaf, (actually a slightly stale one works better) leave it on your fridge for about 2 days, cut it up into cubes, grab a wok, throw a bit of olive oil in there, mix it around, put in your cubes, add a dash of salt and pepper, toss them around, add a bit more olive oil.

Fresh croutons are on a whole other level.

It hits your credit on multiple axes. It's a hard pull, it's a new credit line (average age of accounts), more revolving credit, presumably you're going to use it (higher credit utilization), and ultimately it frightens and confuses your loan officers, who are skittish and easily spooked.

I opened a new $500 Home Depot card for the sweet discount before my first mortgage closed and it ended up costing me an additional .5%. I didn't have any other debt at the time.

I'm guessing whatever models they use for some reason place a heavy emphasis on people taking out a bunch of debt then abandoning things. I opened a couple of CCs for the SUB this spring and now I might have to get a mortgage and I'm deeply regretting it.

It's actually really frustrating in a way because churning subs is really smart if you can do it effectively, and would indicate a high chance you're properly utilizing your credit, but I'm pretty sure when the powers that be use the term "based on your creditworthiness" what they actually mean is "based on your profitability".

Mortgage Lenders ask for like 7 copies of May 2021's Pay Stub 4 times through the process and you think they'll just be like "oh a new 10k line of credit cool cool"???

It's actually pretty dumb though, right, like what difference does it make if you open a new line of credit right before or right after. Like does that magically mean you'll max it out? That your DTI ratio will really change? It's an incredibly archaic way of judging "creditworthiness" and totally opaque, and almost certainly massively racist.

There's no way they are using deep learning to actually figure out the odds of being repaid and determining your loan and rates on that basis. There's obviously a ton of other poo poo going on behind the curtain.

Amazon wouldn't price match me on a set of 2 new twin dell monitors where the price dropped like $100 like 7 days after I ordered them. I talked to a rep and she started arguing with me about the cost of price matching which is something Amazon used to do, and even when I demonstrated mathematically that no, Amazon would not go out of business if they kept price matching, she just kept arguing.

I was pissed off, so I "returned" the monitors while ordering a new pair at the cheaper price, then just sent back 2 old monitors I had instead of the new dells.

A powerful blow struck against the fortunes of Jeff Bezos and Amazon, they are definitely trembling in their market caps.
