What is the best way to travel without using credit cards?

Question by Craptacular Wonderment: What is the best way to travel without using credit cards?
I know I can use debit cards to book flights, hotels, etc.

But as I understand it, once the items are booked, the money in your account is immediately taken, and I’d rather that money remain in the account until closer to the travel date. Or am I mistaken on how this process works?

Is there a better way?

Thank You for the tips!

What’s a good website to print coupons without downloading programs?

Question by myonlymoon: What’s a good website to print coupons without downloading programs?
I want to print coupons online but nearly ever website says I have to download a program to print the coupons. I’m looking for a site where I don’t have to download anything and can just print. I don’t want to download any viruses to my computer! If anyone knows, please respond below. Thank you (:

Answer by Roddy
The vast majority of manufacturers will require the download for their coupons. It’s how they keep you from cheating and printing out a thousand of the same one.

Trusted sites:

Coupons.com
Smartsource.com
Redplum.com

There are other legit sites out there as well. These three are the main ones. Many blogs and other web sites simply link to one or more of these for the actual printing. Even Walmart coupons are actually printed by Coupons.com. Blogs like Coupon Suzy will have a little icon somewhere on the page that says “Powered by Coupons.com”.

Manufacturers put out a limited number of prints. Once that number is reached the coupons are gone until the next time they decide to do it. If none of them required the coupon printer a dozen people could get them all and leave everyone else with nothing.

What defensive items can you carry in the UK without risking prosecution?

Question by BiggerPuppy: What defensive items can you carry in the UK without risking prosecution?
In UK law it is illegal to carry anything that could be considered an offensive weapon in public. I read of an eccentric young man who was prosecuted for carrying a walking stick in public because he did not need it and it could be used as a weapon! The police are also under a great deal of pressure to make as many weapon arrests as possible to boost their performance figures. I was with a friend in the local park when two gangs in the distance started fighting. We phoned the police. He went to his car and picked up a baseball bat and ball. The police stopped him on his way back into the park and asked him what was going on and he told them. They asked about the bat at which point he just waved the ball at them. They shrugged their shoulders knowingly and let him through. Does anybody else have any thoughts on what defensive items you can legally carry e.g. a pointed golfing umbrella on a rainy day?

How I do tell a buyer without offending her, that she is being cheap and not listening to what I have to say?

Question by BOOOOOO: How I do tell a buyer without offending her, that she is being cheap and not listening to what I have to say?
I sell on eBay. One of the items I sell is the 24/7 eyeliner travel set from urban decay. I have a bunch.

So this lady from the Philippines put in an offer for 2 at 25 each after her offer for 20 and 24 were declined and I let her have them for that much.

BIG MISTAKE!

She then asks if she can buy the rest for 20 each. So if you guys know about how ebay and paypal works with their fees, I’d pretty much make nothing.

So, I told her, if she’s willing to cancel her auction, I can get reversed the fees from selling the items, and give her 4 (just 4) at 22 a pop.

So she agrees, but she gave me the hardest time! She was asking me for discounts left and right!

She wanted 3 dollars taken off since I was sending it out local (the auction was FREE SHIPPING).
She wanted freebies, I told her she was getting a sample.

So, despite telling her I cannot let her have more than 4 sets, she is asking for more. What do I tell her? She doesn’t understand even though I told her I wouldn’t make much money and that I can sell them for at least 5 dollars more, she expects to buy more.

Do I block her from bidding? What can I do? I sold them to her outside ebay, so if I got on her bad side, she would sing like a bird to them about it. Or, if she doesn’t know it’s not allowed, I could get a negative.

How do I fix a problem I should have completely avoided by just saying “no” in the first place?

Answer by tid
You’ve dug yourself into a pretty deep hole by going to her outside of eBay. If you’re going to do anything about it, make sure you are very careful and have thought it out carefully before you do anything.

At this point, I reckon you can just try as much as possible to close this one deal with as small a loss as possible. Just remember next time to say “no”.

Is it a bad idea to pitch a clothing line without physical garments?

Question by nick: Is it a bad idea to pitch a clothing line without physical garments?
So I am going to start my clothing line an I would like to pitch the idea to a local skateshop (it’s called vertigo, it’s pretty big but it’s a Texas only store with 4-5 locations) but it’s too much money and work to print a SINGLE shirt, and I don’t feel comfortable getting let’s say 500 shirts printed without anything a solid deal. And also, when I pitch my clothing line what should I expect to get in return, if anything at all?

Best answer:

Answer by Lynn Bodoni
It’s a very bad idea to pitch a line of clothing without samples. If you aren’t committed enough to your line to print up a few samples, most stores aren’t going to take you seriously. You are asking the store to invest in your line, but you aren’t willing to invest in yourself.

I was an assistant buyer for a clothing store owner for five years. Any vendor who didn’t have a few samples worked up would not be even talked to.

What is a good way to deal with depression without going to a counselor?

Question by nick k: What is a good way to deal with depression without going to a counselor?
My girlfriend of 5 years left me about 3 weeks ago, little did she know that i had bought and engagement ring for her. And about a week ago a cousin of mine died over seas in Iraq. Him and I were really close he was like a younger brother to me, we hung out together all the time he was pretty much my best friend, besides my old girlfriend. I have tried to get my girlfriend to come back to me but she just doesn’t want to. Ever since she left I have been really depressed and everyone at my job notices a change in me, I just don’t tell them cause its really not there business. I guess my question is is there a way to deal with depression without going to a counselor, or taking any pills? Am I able to go to something like a local rehad center? I am interested i knowing what you all have to say.

Q&A: Any good massage marketing tips without getting creeps off the street?

Question by ♥: Any good massage marketing tips without getting creeps off the street?
I have my cards and brochures and local businesses such as physical therapy offices, health food stores. I have package deals and referral programs also. Any other safe marketing ideas to increase clientele base. It’s tough to market in this industry.

Best answer:

Answer by daisy
you know how restaurants or smoothie shops will have a card that you get punched every time you go in? you can create a card that they get 1 hole punch for every 30 min of massage and after 10 punches they get a free 30 min of massage–very good for regular customers. that way if they get a 1 hour massage they get 2 punches. they win and you get a regular customer!

you could offer a client a free 15 min add on to there next massage if they refer someone to you–15 extra min is not that big of a deal to you and hopefully you’ll get a client for life.also when your massage is over you always wish you had just 15 min more right? well,by offering to add that 15 min it will entice someone to refer a client to you.

i worked for this company that did free 15 min chiar massages on teusdays. most people will want more and will usually schedule an hour. also on monday it was senoir day and they got 15% off if you were 55 years or older. i dont know if its just you or you have a business with multiple massage therapist but you could offer “girlfriend day” on a wenesday and charge a reduced price for “couples” massage.

The best way to advertise is through word of mouth. if you are diligent,and treat evryone with resect and honesty they will refer others.its the little extra things you do that will keep people coming back to you as apposed to the other massage therapist down the street. little things like advising people of exercises or stretches they can do at home to help with problem areas or letting them pick out a certain scent of lotion they want to be used on them when they come in.Those things bring dedicated clientelle.

Good luck!!
