RE: Installing a safe?

First now every body knows you have a safe, next they know you have a firearm and an iPad. Just saying ??? To answer your question if I had one I would not have it in the open but easy to get to and be able to see to open and yes have it secured. JimR What are you smoking? I have 2 safes and a bunch of firearms. But you don’t know who I am so who cares.... Hey I am in California now so.......:B JimR

RE: Blocking "Restricted" Calls on Smartphone

I've had no problem blocking calls on my Samsung Android phone (Verizon), but when I receive a call that reads "Restricted" on the screen, it can't be blocked. The call is undoubtedly a scammer, and it's a sly attempt to prevent blockage since no number is displayed. These people are a pain. :M This statement is not correct. I have received Restricted Calls and all as I remember were from Law Enforcement. That said I assume a scammer might be able to use that but in my experience the scam calls use a phone number close to mine. JimR

RE: Mail Forwarding Cost. Virtual Mail vs Priority Mail

Why is everything coming Priority Mail? Do you have large items or so much that you need that? Is it business instead of personal mail ? We just have first-class mail, with advertisements and junk mail automatically discarded and don't spend anywhere near what you do. We order our mail when we want it, but actually get very little paper mail. Most of our statements, notices or correspondence is online. Priority mail has a tracking number and for me it is a bit more comforting than no tracking number. But ya it is more money. JimR

RE: Mail Forwarding Cost. Virtual Mail vs Priority Mail

PawPaw_n_gram "You need to look at each thing you received this year. Was any of it something you NEEDED to physically receive. That can help you with the costs. So far for us, scanning works out to be more expensive than receiving it physically." This is what I was looking for a comparison of the costs. I am assuming that for me the costs may be close for either service so will see probably after the first of the year. I had issues with my mail order RX as they would put me on auto refill and send it to BFE, this happened more than once so I just do the retail stores. The thing with the scanning is I can wait till I see an important piece of mail then the order the send. Thank You JimR

RE: Mail Forwarding Cost. Virtual Mail vs Priority Mail

I have USPS Informed Delivery. As mentioned, it is far from perfect. I like it though. So I would be very happy with Virtual Mail. Sounds like it would be more complete. I, as well, have slimmed down my paper mail. Many utilities, credit card companies, etc. offer paperless billing. We could be gone 3 or 4 months and get maybe two pieces of really important mail. Our neighbor collects our mail. She'll open, scan a letter, mail us a particular piece...as per our instruction. So with USPS Informed Delivery and neighbor...well, sounds like that's about what your Virtual Mail is. I'd say go for it. Can you go back to the other way if you don't like it? Janss Your neighbor is your mail forwarding service using Virtual Mail as I understand the information from the many mail forwarding service around the country that offer this service. I did cut back on all my mail and went to digital format billing and such. I am a full timer and have been using Dakota Post since 2004. The Informed Delivery Service with my Daughter may work. Thank You For the reply JimR

RE: Mail Forwarding Cost. Virtual Mail vs Priority Mail

So you are getting priority mail twice a month for $7.50 a mailing. It seems to me you have little to complain about. If you are concerned about the amount you could cut back on the frequency. Before I started out as a full timer, I worked on cutting out as much paper as possible and often went months before collecting my mail. I am not complaining I am just asking about Virtual Mail. Perhaps I worded thing the wrong way will edit. Also the last cost was $8.15 per mailing JimR

RE: Mail Forwarding Cost. Virtual Mail vs Priority Mail

not sure what you mean by virtual mail but if your forwarder allows you to pick and choose which mail they forward you might want to create an account with the US Post office and then sign up for their INFORMED DELIVERY SERVICE (free). you'll get a daily e-mail showing the front of the envelopes that have been processed for delivery that day. USPS Informed Delivery My understanding is that the Informed Delivery Service cannot be used for a commercial address such as a CMRA. Do you know of anyone that's able to use it with a CMRA account? CMRA? CMRA = Commercial Mail Receiving Agency JimR ok, well all i can tell you is our experience. we used America's Mailbox last winter. all of our mail was forwarded to them and all of that mail showed up on the daily USPS Informed Delivery e-nail. that's how i kept track of what should be in our weekly delivery of mail. but because most of our commercial mail had been switched to e-mail the amount of postal mail we received each week was small. it always fit in one of those small plastic envelopes. minimal cost. rk911 When you say forwarded to Americas Mailbox you are saying that the post office had a forwarding address and then forwarded your mail to Americas Mailbox? That would make sense but I have my mail sent to Dakota Post directly and do not think that the Informed Delivery would work but will check on that. Thank You JimR

USPS Informed Delivery Virtual Mail is a service that some mail forwarding companies offer. They scan the mail and post the scan on the internet via their portal for you to view when you get notified of such a scan. They can if you want open the mail and scan the pages inside for an additional fee. You can choose what to have sent to you eliminating junk or not needed mail. You would have the ability to save up the mail and have it sent when you want. The ability to see the mail (unopened for me) may be the cost saver of only sending when needed, say once every 60 days thereby saving some postage. Not trying to be a tight wad but Virtual Mail may give me more options at a possible savings or even a break even with what I am paying now but with the ability to see any very important mail that needs attention.

RE: Mail Forwarding Cost. Virtual Mail vs Priority Mail

Let me try to understand. You’re complaining about $8 and change to have a box mailed to you? Last flat rate box I sent, which is the cheapest mail, was more than that. It may have been big enough to hold 2 weeks of mail. Grit Dog I am not complaining about anything. My post is aimed at those that have Virtual Mail and whether they like it or not and are they saving any money. I am currently paying about $345.00 a year and Virtual Mail may be a cheaper option at $239.00 a year plus any scan cost and a mailing fee of $2.00. JimR

Mail Forwarding Cost. Virtual Mail vs Priority Mail

Hello I am using Dakota Post in Sioux Falls SD for my mail forwarding and I am happy with them and the yearly service price. I am not planning on moving my mail forwarding service. Over the years the cost of postage has gone up and up and now the cost for priority mail twice a month is $195.60 annually (postage only). I know I could cut that in half by a once a month mailing but I like the twice a month service. So sans the yearly cost of Dakota Post just looking at the mailing costs: Is there anyone out there that uses a virtual mail service and how do you like it and is it a cost saver? Thank You JimR

RE: Direct to stop SD transmission on Dec.31

I received an email from DTV that I need to change out my card in the SD receive to continue to receive service as soon as Jan 11, 2021. This was about the 5th or 6th time for the email but this was the first with a drop dead date, more or less. So does that mean that SD transmissions will continue??? Who really knows for sure??? PS this will be my third card sent because they continue to send it to my service address where I am currently not at even though they say they are sending it to my mailing address. JimR

RE: Amazon Lockers

I did an Amazon order and I had it sent to the locker but the lockers were limited because the weight was way over 10 pounds. My locker was at a drug store behind the counter not in a "locker" So it seems to work jIMr

RE: Roadside Assistance Plans Specific Coverage

Hello Floridastorm, Thank you for your inquiry, Good Sam Roadside Assistance does include trip interruption assistance. Please see the below link for the inclusions. membership. https://images.goodsam.com/goodsamroadside.com/mbb/GRA%2058263_Rev%205.2020_Platinum_plus.pdf Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Have a good day. Thank you, Ella Good Sam Customer Care Team From how I read the coverage it states accident and does not state breakdown. Trip Interruption Assistance for When Accidents Happen "If you have an accident more than 100 miles from home, we will reimburse you up to $1,500 for all eligible expenses, such as, meals, lodging and car rental while your vehicle is getting repaired". Possibly in the actual contract it includes breakdown. I read it the same: TRIP INTERRUPTION ASSISTANCE4 Members and Associates are eligible for reimbursement for the cost of meals, lodging and car rental if Member’s vehicle is disabled due to a collision with another vehicle more than 100 miles from their home.

RE: Roadside Assistance Plans Specific Coverage

The Good Sam Extended Service Plan does. Reimbursement up to 10 days. $100.00 per day for meals and lodging and up to $60.00 per day for rental car costs. JimR Are you sure that the Good Sam plan reimburses in the event of a breakdown? I read it as in the event of an accident. Yes I quoted from my Good Sam Extended Service Plan under the Gold Terms and Conditions Service Plan under Trip Interruption. I have a Class A Motorhome. If I need a tow I will call my tow company and then have Good Sam pay for the covered repair. Under conditions I can get reimbursement for motel and food and a rental car. If I have a collision my insurance or the other guys will cover the cost of the repair in that policy I do believe I have car rental and not sure about any other coverage for motel or meals. JimR
