Metal credit cards don't go through shredders


My Chase card is metal. I found out the hard way metal cards don't go through shredders. Instead, you have to call the credit card company and ask for a postage paid envelope so you can mail it to them. They get rid of it.

The questions remain:


  1. Do we trust the U.S. Mail? 
  2. Will the credit card company start paying for destroyed shredders?
The answers are no and no.

A stupid chat with staples.com



Here's a new one. The staples.com agent told me that Staples sends spam!

It was not spam at all. It was an email sent to me in error, saying there was still merchandise in my cart.

This is one of the vagaries of using underpaid agents from third world countries who speak too little English.

Here it is:
