Week 10 – 2014

This week was a little busy. I had to get dog food before my appointment. I had my appointment on Wednesday, but didn’t have enough for both dogs for when Monday came. Therefore, I left at 7:25AM to get the 7:30AM bus to get me to the grocery store. It is actually nice to get to the store this early. While I got dog food, I also picked up some food to hold over until mid next week. Wednesday, I went to the dentist which I just needed some fillings. In addition, I tried to get a different type of dentures approved which didn’t happen.

I also ordered what I thought to be a Bluetooth Keyboard. In addition to the keyboard, I ordered a 6” micro-USB cable, and a case that was supposed to function as a stand for my Sero 7. The keyboard was for the Nexus 7 so I could give it a bigger role. However, the keyboard failed to be a Bluetooth Keyboard. After contacting Amazon with this issue, I received an RMA. I did informed them that this was one of the results I received when I searched for Bluetooth Keyboard. However, I had to print out a UPS label which meant I needed to go to Downtown to print the label (since I have no printer), and since the keyboard will not fit in a drop box, I went to Manchester to drop off at the UPS customer service station. Taking a 13 there, I had to walk a bit – and to return, I was able to take the 18 which I then transferred to the LRT line at Allegheny Station. I had to wait, so I decided to get lunch. Considering I have only a little bit of food, this was just a pain on the wallet so to say.

Consequences with Loyalty to Capital One

A number of years ago, I have been approved for a Capital One card. I can’t recall the exact date, but I know it has been at least 5 years, but wouldn’t be surprised if it has been 10 years. So, why would I be so upset? Well, in recent times, I have been treated in a manner that is inappropriate in how I have dealt with Capital One. Unfortunately, this is not going to change things, but it will force me to literally make financial decision based on whether or not it is acceptable to Capital One.

Now Capital One wants to claim, they are doing so much for me. My interest rate is 13.9% which I am sure is pretty good in comparison to other people. Although, let’s face it, it ought to be. Nonetheless, this is of no consequence to me as I will explain later. There is also traveler’s insurance, roadside assistance and extended warranty of certain products. I will get to that later in this post.
