Let’s start with this first one as I think a number of you got in on the amazing deal that let you save literally hundreds of dollars on Dell buys over Cyber Monday when you add in the AMEX SYNC offer. I got 4 laptops and flipped them in a day on Ebay. All in, after costs, I only made about $35 each unit. So I was really looking forward to the money back from BeFrugal but it was not showing up. I had to start a tracking ticket on each order and they have now confirmed I will be paid for the clicks. You may want to do the same if you are not tracking for your orders!
Next up there were a number of comments about my review of the GATCEPOT 15k battery bank. I felt it is a nice unit but a bit under powered and when I tried loading up my 20k brink I only got it to 52%. To me that showed it was not what was promised. I guess I may have been flat out wrong. Notice what “Bob” (real name withheld for privacy reason) e-mailed me I should have done:
“You did your test the wrong way. You need to test charging the 15,000 mAh unit from the 20,000 mAh unit.” – Bob
OK Bob I did what you asked. I power up the 20k bank to full 100% charge then overnight charged the 15k bank from that bank. Well now – that is an interesting result isn’t it. So this shows me the GETCEPOT may in fact be the better part of a 15k brick as advertised (I hate being wrong).
Also, I was slammed by a number of folks that I should have tested charging my phone over and over from dead and see if it would take it to full 3 or 4 times. I will be doing just that as I plan to keep and use these two banks often. Bottom line is I was maybe a bit too harsh in my review but still personally feel it is a little under powered. Let’s call it a 15k-ish bank shall we? 😉
Lastly, as I talked about a few days ago, you are just about out of time if you want to apply, be approved and make a charge and score 10,000 bonus MQMs for 2016 for $450 fee of the Delta personal or business AMEX Reserve cards. You will kick yourself if you have to pony up and “gift” mega bucks to Delta to buy MQMs after the first of the year if you end up short! – René
