Re: I don't want that Visa Paywave thingy - is there a bank that doesn't have it?

That's my concern. When I spoke to ANZ, the guy said "It's not a problem if you report it promptly", but define "promptly". What if you don't notice?

Re: I don't want that Visa Paywave thingy - is there a bank that doesn't have it?

I'm presuming Customer Services would have told me if I could change the limit on it, but I'll email to ask.

I don't have a problem with ME not using a PIN, I just think if I lost my card it gives...

I don't want that Visa Paywave thingy - is there a bank that doesn't have it?

My ANZ card expired, so was activating the new one and noticed it had this. I told them I didn't want it as I don't find putting in a PIN number terribly onerous and it's more secure. Apparently if I...

Re: Holiday Let, Perth

We used to rent a nice apartment in Quinns, if that's not too far out. Look for The White House on stayz.com.au.

Re: Be careful, snakes are on the move

Sorry to hear that, Jacqui, and thanks for the warning.

And on the subject of things that are poisonous to cats - poinsettias (although I never knew that about lillies.)

Re: Dog information required

Thanks so much, everyone. Lots of food for thought.

I don't really want a dog (as opposed to really don't want one) and husband is actually the same (stupid comment came as they were being licked...

Re: Dog information required

In our case little Johnnie is adopted, which makes it even more important that we think carefully - giving animals back because it's no longer convenient is not a message we want to be sending.

Re: Dog information required

Yeah, well one of my reasons for not wanting one is the cost, but the life insurance would sort that out.

Dog information required

My soon-to-be-late-husband ;) made the mistake of asking Mini (6.5) "would you like a dog?"

So all week we've had tears etc. about getting a dog. We've not said yes yet, but we've said we'll give...

Re: contenets insurance how do they work help?

I'm with Suncorp too and have portable bundles cover (or something like that). It includes $x amount for computers, $y for CDs, $z for DVDs ( as specified by me) but nothing is listed separately.

Re: To pool or not to pool, that is the question

Thanks for all the responses guys (although still can't decide!)

To pool or not to pool, that is the question

We have a small oddly-shaped back garden that needs "something" doing to it - the lawn is crap and has a large, round dead patch where we had a big paddling pool last year.

Re: shipping packed by company and packed by owner help

When I lived in Singapore there were lots of stories of stuff that melted en route because the container wasn't refrigerated.

Do you know if yours is?
