Considering its supposed to launch in July and we’re in July and haven’t heard anything I wouldn’t get my hopes up.
If you want groceries delivered I guess it might be worth $98/yr but for everything else one has a wider selection including higher quality on Amazon.
Walmart+ will reportedly feature free same-day grocery delivery, reserve delivery slots, offer notifications when slots open, and provide discounts on fuel at its gas stations. Because Walmart is the leading US grocer, and since Amazon doesn’t operate gas stations, Prime can’t match the value these perks may have to consumers.
There were speaker boxes you hung of off your car in drive ins. I wonder how audio will work at WM. Cars didn’t have a.c. so the engine wasn’t running.
Nowadays people are apt to keep the engine running for a.c. so 2 hrs of idling across the country to add to the ozone layer. Hopefully they’ll tell people to turn off the engines. Special appearances? Since most in the film industry are around L.A. I’m guessing any special appearances will be on the West coast.
I agree with your thoughts. I, too, wish they were not so quick to throw in the towel. They could have done what you noted other buffets are doing to survive, but they didn’t even try. Disappointing to say the least. Thank you for the good, timely information. If you ever figure out the website to get the proof of claim paper, please post it.
One lesson I learned from this experience is not too buy restaurant gift cards in large amounts, especially from restaurants that are financially struggling. A long time ago Hometown Buffet was selling their gift cards for half-off when they were financially struggling. I bought a bunch and luckily I didn’t get burned and was able to use them all up. When a retail store goes under, you can almost always use their gift cards during their liquidation sale, but with restaurants since they don’t carry stock like a store does, no such luck. They just close and you are out your money in gift cards.
EDIT: Through Google searching I found where a copy of the Proof of Claim 410 form can be downloaded. It can be found here.
My battery on a brand new dell failed after about a year or two. Of course it’s not covered under warranty.
Depends on how much you use the laptop on battery. Mine is plugged in most of the time, with charging on at 50% and off at 90%. Even with minimal usage, a good battery probably would not last more than 5 years.
@mistercheap It’s interesting to see what comes out of this. There were a lot of businesses that started in the 1980s for reasons that escape me, but I can see a lot more new businesses starting in the wake of covid and a lot of established institutions going belly up.
wow, that sucks. Sorry to hear this, Office Depot has really been great the last few years, filled a lot of the void of Staples’ hey day.
@niniss I’ve always made it a point to never buy more than 6-8 months ink supply at a time, slowly but surely, the ink recycle party has been dwindling. Limits per month have been dropping over the last 5 years, then Staples added the $30 per 6 month ink spend kicker too.
It still shows this online:
For the health and safety of our associates and customers, we have temporarily suspended ink & toner recycling. Please check back for further details. All rewards previously earned or issued will remain valid.
May be store specific.
Not sure, might be, so you might want to call your store first to check. It worked for me though. I just recycled 10 carts about 2 hours ago.

I wonder how that will work when I buy something on a whim only to find out they are an Amazon “reshipper” or whatever it’s called. They basically order from Amazon and have it sent to me and I find the Amazon gift receipt inside the box and see an Amazon warehouse sender address? On a couple of those, I see the Amazon price a bit cheaper but then again I’ve seen it more expensive.
I suspect that only the buyer and the eBay seller know if an item was drop shipped. As long as you can find the qualified item’s product page listing it cheaper on Amazon than what you paid on eBay, I think the supplier/shipper is irrelevant if you get the described item in the expected condition, at the listed price, and by the date promised (and I wouldn’t even confuse matters by mentioning it in the price match request).
What is more disturbing to me is your observation that you’re receiving Amazon warehouse items… if the item was listed/sold as new on eBay. That’s grounds for filing a eBay/PayPal dispute (and items that aren’t new and unopened invalidates eligibility for eBay’s price matching anyway).
Just FYI, these are not really meals per se; I went with my daughter yesterday and this is what we got. This is one “adult meal” and one “kids meal”. But better than nothing for many and sufficient for snacking I guess
@fivetalents Looks great! Can we put some links to some suggested materials people can get on amazon, walmart, target, etc?
Everyone is certainly welcome to post such links and suggestions! However, what I love about this method is that the materials are easily and cheaply available at local dollar stores, Walmart, grocery stores, etc.
Better yet, most people already have a bandanna/scarf and rubber bands/hair elastics at home. Even if you don’t and you don’t want the risk of an extra B&M trip, there are many viable substitutions around your house.
Instead of a bandana/scarf, consider things such as a thick/densely woven t-shirt, jeans, sweatshirt, pillowcase, blanket, tablecloth, etc.
Instead of rubber bands or elastic hair ties, consider cutting horizontal strips/circles from shirt sleeves, tights/pantyhose, leggings, exercise pants, plastics bags, socks, etc. (you may need to twist and fold the circle in half to achieve the right length).
If you don’t have the optional pipe cleaner or garbage bag twist ties, use one from a loaf of bread or check your junk drawers and plugged-in power cords for those super thick twist ties that pretty much all new electronics come with to wrap up cords.
The optional HEPA filter is likely the only thing you might need to buy (Jerry rigged options like paper towels, used dryer sheets, and coffee filters are poor substitutes IMHO, but are probably better than nothing in a pinch).
