  1. Should have bought the bitcoin when I mentioned it. You would be substantially better off this morning. LOL.
  2. The last time I used the online system, six months ago, I got the approved report back in five minutes. Chiang Mai used to process them.
  3. Six days later, still pending. Not impressed.
  4. If it was me, I would buy bitcoin in Thailand and convert back to my home currency. Will have pay some fees, to do this.
  5. A data point on what office you report to would be useful. Mine has been pending for three days now. Based in Lampang, but it says the Chiang Mai office handles the online report.
  6. That is not the usual way a tax increase is implemented. A price increase may be phased in as new stock comes online. Tax increases are usually immediate, as the cost of the stock is not relevant. It is a law that applies to sales, regardless of when the stock was purchased.
  7. Still no change in prices for beer, Gilby gin, or 100% grape wine at my local Lotus Express. What was this all about anyway?
  8. Can you supply any info on home brew suppliers? Something I was thinking about, even before the tax hike.
  9. AMEX at Service Stations?

    I think the US AMEX cards have better sign up bonuses. The problem with all AMEX products, at least up here in Lampang, is that there is no place to use the damn thing. I can use my Chase Visa card just about everywhere. Plus I get 3x points on travel and meals. Can transfer them to a bunch of different airlines and hotels. Pretty disappointed with the AMEX experience in Thailand.
  10. AMEX at Service Stations?

    Yeah, they don't like that. They also don't like it if you try and use a mail forwarder as your address. Don't know if I am going to reach the spend level on on this card to get the bonus. So few people accept it around here. I bought some tires for my truck yesterday that would have gone a long way to the bonus. The shop had about six different terminals. He tried it in all of them. No luck.
  11. AMEX at Service Stations?

    $95. The first year is free. Will likely cancel it before the fee is due. I am mainly after the sign up bonus of 25000 Starwood points.
  12. AMEX at Service Stations?

    Mine has no foreign transaction fees.
  13. AMEX at Service Stations?

    Mine is purple. Linked to Starwood Hotel Group. What difference does that make?
  14. AMEX at Service Stations?

    We have a huge PTT on the highway between Lampang and Chiang Mai. Surprised they wouldn't take it. Will try some others.
