Okay, so went shopping and charged the purchase, when I got home looked at the receipt and it was for 3X what I had bought. Went back and talked to the manger and we straightened it out, seems they put the last 4 numbers of the CC in and the cashier was treating it like a debit card so it thought that was the amount, honest mistake but it would have cost me money if I didn't catch it.

I don’t need your attitude thanks, I have one of my own!

If you shop at Von's and you use your club card along with the online thing, you need to check your receipt, item by item. We have bought items and they were not charged the sale price. No problem when you bring back your receipt and show the items mis-priced, they will refund the difference. Just beware and ALWAYS check your receipt.

Sort of on the same subject: I just re-upped my verizon cell phone, with "free" phones after a mail-in rebate. I asked the salesman, just out of curiosity, what percentage of people actually go through and fill out the tedious paperwork required to reeive the rebate. He told me 75% do NOT file for a rebate. Very surprised at that number. 50 bucks is 50 bucks. No wonder they "offer" rebates.

Geezer - They (Verizon) send out a Visa/Citi rebate/debit card. I got mine for $50 in Jan.

Ok I was able to post that in the general discussion, wasn't sure where to put it. Just so you can see what I am talking about. It has been shared on facebook almost 10K times. Again, was just surprised they would post this

This was not a USGS advisory. THey don't issue them. That's why I was surprised to see the Sheriff do a facebook post. It was really just a reminder to be prepared I am sure

My brother has the bug out bag, because he has to leave quickly once the tsunami sirens start blaring. We have discussed having cash, water, portable phone chargers,food, family phone numbers, flashlight, extra clothing...things like this. I do the usual earthquake prep at my house. I am going to read about that earthquake advisory online, because I know they cannot be predicted. However, would not be surprised if they developed some sort of panel as they are developing the earthquake warning system now. Once a quake begins. areas further away get alerts, allowing them to brace or position themselves before the shaking gets to them. Pretty cool

It's just as news story about the swarm, not technically an advisory...they have tsunami advisories of course, warnings, etc. But usgs does not issue anything for earthquakes.

And btw I am on a list for years to get a USGS quake monitor at my home. This would be bolted to my garage floor. They ran out of funding but they said they would keep me on their list while they wait for more funding.

Just thought it was interesting as I have never seen that before. Suprised to see the Facebook post. I have an interest in watching the USGS quake site, and have often warned my brother in waikiki to grab his bug out bag and head for higher ground when there are tsunami. I follow and read all the tsunami warnings for him. It is very difficult to get a vehicle out of that area when the sirens go off and everyone is in a panic. We discuss what should be in that bug out bag and what he needs at his house often, because he has been through numerous hurricane warnings too. He lives a few blocks from the water.

Warnings issued by the California offices of emergency services and the California earthquake prediction evaluation council.

Benny the Orange County Sherrif Dept posted that earthquake info on facebook. I did see it on one of the websites they referred to. I have it on a screen shot I just dont know how to post it on here.
