It is probably safest to assume that they are sending your browsing data back to their servers and on-selling that info later.

So, your buddy is selling them for $1.00 per weightmeasure to Supermarkup. Supermarkup is selling them for $6.00 per weightmeasure (500%...

One reason would likely be that the supermarkets were given special treatment by the current government through lockdowns. They could have...

You could always double down and get another one (or two for $2.52 each if Wakrak's method works!)

Depending on how much the tape costs, you might argue it was cheaper to buy a new one!

Maybe you get a different IP address is you request a hostname lookup from a different location (provided via DNS4Me's DNS Server), and...

The [GetFlix FAQ]( seems to imply that your connection is going through GetFlix's server, and then being...

Fair enough :-) It just sounds a bit too dodgy for my liking, and you won't know until its too late. I think I'll stick with a VPN that...
16/01/2022 - 18:09
Okay - Looks like they are selling a proxy? The DNS stuff sounds like snake-oil, but a proxy would work regardless of whether you use their...

How will a different DNS provider make any difference to whether the 'service' allows you to connect? You would still need a VPN or proxy,...

Fair enough - there would be no issue at all with deductibility that I can see, but a warranty claim, is a maybe, or at least a potential...

Hi Gatkins, When you say that you 'wanted it as a business purchase' - what do you mean? What difference would it have made if you got an...

No - me neither!

My view is that I only buy something on its own merits, and never for the (potential) cashback. If I get the cashback, that's a bonus.
15/01/2022 - 21:44
Okay.... not sure you understood what I was saying?
15/01/2022 - 21:43
Whilst I totally agree with your comment, it still makes me uncomfortable entering a domain name, and getting taken to a host. I suspect I...

Including HFREAC40 ? Was your account deactivated before you entered the code?
15/01/2022 - 19:23
Thanks Arsonist - It looks like it works for me.
15/01/2022 - 15:20
I would speculate that the code was only valid for the one account perhaps?
14/01/2022 - 22:15
Yes - and when something goes wrong and we 'lose out', whatever the value of the loss, consider it a payment for further education (as long...

Perhaps not entirely the point. If my son had wanted to do something like that, I would likely have facilitated it too even if I thought it...

I thoroughly endorse this comment - insurance brokers can make a huge difference, both in getting you a lower premium (or better coverage),...
13/01/2022 - 11:46
Maybe you would be better off using a broker? I have done so in the past, and I got a better deal for a lower premium, but my requirements...

Yes - better than Jacinda's plan that we all buy dedicated single-use bin liners. Plastic bags from the supermarket got, at an absolute...
10/01/2022 - 23:30
For the freezer, we use the plastic bags that bread comes in - we would be throwing them out if we didn't re-use them for freezer bags, so...

I would do it in Excel myself, but you could add it into a calendar instead. Obviously lots of ways to do that, but if you want to keep it...

I think you decant it into your mouth.
07/01/2022 - 18:54
Fair comment - the CC mantra is 'bugger it - I don't need it, but it's a great deal'!
07/01/2022 - 18:54
In store only otherwise you could have ordered online and collected if the store confirmed your order :-) If you 'divide' into 300ml...

I only have about $6 owing to me, so not overly concerned if they are paying creditors using a credit card due to cash flow issues.
