  1. I was shocked. As soon as I finished it. I logged back on to check the status, and it was approved.
  2. No. It is approved. I have the receipt with the next report date. I have the IE extension. doesn't work for me in Linux Mint.
  3. I just did mine online. Received the approved receipt about one minute later. Perfect. Had to use Internet Explorer. Impossible to type in Firefox or Chrome. I am based in Lampang.
  4. Formica, Wilsonart, and a Thai made laminate are readily available in Chiang Mai. The Thai product is definitely inferior. There are several furniture builder suppliers that carry them. They also have good quality plywood to use as a base, or you can use Viva Board, which isn't affected by water or bugs.
  5. Want to travel to the Cook Islands on the cheap with my Thai Friend. Was thinking we could fly Air Asia X to Sydney, and some other airline from Sydney to Rarotonga. Can this be done without any Australia visas If we don't leave the transit area in Sydney? Would Air Asia require an Australian visa to fly? Thanks for any info.
  6. Did a quick look at their website. If I am reading it correctly, they can't be used outside the US.
  7. So I have received my 100k bonus points from the Reserve card plus the 50k bonus I received from the Chase Preferred card. With all the purchases I have made recently, have enough points for two round trip business class tickets on Singapore Air. Trying to decide between South Africa or Japan. No visa needed for either of those for my Thai partner. :) I believe those tickets are worth about $4000 US if you were to buy them. Not a bad deal at all.
  8. The rules are the same as everywhere else. They put up a sign with instructions next one in Lampang. Still no go.
  9. There are a couple in Lampang. Unfortunately, despite posted instructions, most drivers can't figure out how to use them.
  10. I also have a nexus 6. It is much more difficult to replace the battery in that phone. Had trouble finding a shop that would touch it. Also, the replacement battery I got off ebay only lasted a few months. Trying to source an OEM battery now. I would not buy another nexus 6.
  11. You don't have to book through Chase to use the $300 travel credit. I just bought a Nok Air ticket direct, and the credit was automatically applied to that.
  12. Also keep in mind that if you purchase travel through Chase, the points are worth 50% more.
  13. Assuming you never paid for any restaurant meals or purchased any travel, you would need to spend $15,000 a year to make up for the effective $150 annual fee.
  14. As I said, the speed is not sufficient in my area for VOIP.
  15. I don't know what you are talking about. On 12/30 I made a purchase at Tesco Lotus with my Chase Sapphire Reserve card for 826 baht. I was billed 23.11 USD. That is an exchange rate of 35.74. On that day, Bangkok Bank shows a TT rate of 35.67 baht / USD.
