Thanks guy for the info.

FYI – Chase is beta training a new feature called MyCar.

https://autopreferred.chase.com/garage?offercode=WEB

MyCar is a new online resource you can use to track the maintenance of your cars, understand their market value, check for safety recalls and more. The MyCar site is currently in development and we’ll be adding even more tools and features so that managing your cars becomes simpler and you can focus on enjoying the drive. At this time, MyCar cannot support the following brands: Subaru, Jaguar, Land Rover, Aston Martin and Maserati.

There is no cost for using MyCar.

most of the Walmart groceries and fresh produces I purchase became in store purchase only for the past 4 months. I don’t see how throwing some Insta markup would be useful. doesn’t this defeats the purpose of neighborhood stores?

Yup Instacart always charges 25% at least more then the grocery they are working for. Tops markets in upstate NY never gives the circular prices when you order online thru Instacart. Advertised blueberries in Tops store are 1.99/pint..instacart 3.99 from same store. Phonies. Everything marked up lots. Plus tip and fees. So I have been ordering from Shoprite from Home during pandemic…EXCELLENT. Great biz model. same prices as in circular and just 14.99 fee. plus tip.Well worth it and they seem to have 90% of order and no substitutions unless you want a sub but they text you first. And they use refrigerated ShopRite trucks in all this hot weather. Got ice cream and milk.and fresh fish…ice cold. Instacart kids use their hot dirty cars. Got notified last week that Stop and Shop has switched over to their own peapod service same as Shoprite. Same prices as in ads. But 9.95 delivery plus tip. And Peapod and ShopRite from home code as grocery for AMEX BCP for 6%.

Instacart at local Publix adds between 9.5-10.5% to almost every item I ordered – all the essentials had a 10% mark-ups and any BOGO savings/coupons are kept by Instacart.

Whole Foods curbside pickup makes more sense for us – and Chase Amazon can give you 5% back.

If it wasn’t for the DoT and chargebacks, I would personally be out thousands of dollars on flights.

Only California would find a way to screw over even more small businesses during a crisis. The exodus from California will only accelerate with decisions like these

Yeap, not surprising. They are government that is simply too inept to understand simple shit like “part time work” – which is what uber is designed to be. So if someone casually works Uber for 8 hours a week they have to be considered an “employee” and get healthcare and retirement benefits? Nuts. Absolutely nuts.

As someone that travels a lot for work, I ran into a perfect example: It was a construction worker for downtown Chicago. Everyday he would use Uber to go to work – and use Uber to go home – and it helped him pay for his daily parking expenses.

You don’t appear to understand that part time employees and contractors are different things. Nobody is demanding that someone Ubering for 5 hours/wk gets full time healthcare and retirement benefits. Rather they’re demanding that the one consistently doing it for 40 hours a week get them.

You’re so confident that CA is inept yet you lack even the most basic understanding of the laws. California understands “part time work” just fine.

Uber should put restriction on how much it will allow a driver to work in a week.

Uber is economically useful if the drivers use it truly as a side gig.

Debit that is an easy solution. Limit drivers to 4 hours / day, 20 hours / week. That will make it a part time job.
