Re: Correos Chile is horrible!

Ok. The process is a pain now. A few years back you could go to Seremi and get a personal use certificate for stuff like vitamins and minerals. Send the certificate back to Correos and get your stuff. I had to do that at least two or three times. Then one time I went to the local Seremi office and t...

Re: Correos Chile is horrible!

So you have to go to your dr. and get a prescription for the vitamins. So they have to write down on the prescription what the vitamins are and the dosage? I am curious, how much does your Dr. charge you for this service? I guess after the first time, they know what you needed. Space Cat, can you gi...

Re: Correos Chile is horrible!

Space Cat, can you give some more detail on your iHerb orders as they pertain to vitamins. That is, when customs wants more information from you, what are all the hoops that you have to jump through? What do you mean by recipes for vitamins? Prescriptions? I have sent over 50 small packages over the...

Re: Bamboo Flutes

Rune,

I saw this before and meant to make a post.

Really nice work. Are you still making flutes? If so, just Indian Bansuri flutes?

Re: ATM fee

For an update on this long thread (will be 10 years this coming July 2019),

What banks/cards/networks are not charged fees or refunded fees? I am talking about an international transaction fee or an atm fee that your bank may charge you. Like mine does. :(

Re: ATM fee

Has anyone looked at and charted the exchange rate they are getting from the various here banks when you use their atms? On Dec 20th, I withdrew 200000clp from BICE with a machine transaction charge of 2500. So the total was 202500 clp. The amount that showed up on my account was $294.10usd. So that...

Re: Laptop stolen from idiot

In the land of scammers and thieves I can't argue with that. And they're very patient too. I know a guy who pretended to be my friend for about 2 or 3 years, before he started asking for money. I always knew something wasn't right. Well he probably asks all his friends for money. The better the fri...

Re: Laptop stolen from idiot

Sorry to hear about that. Stuff grows legs when you get on a bus! I have friends who had stuff taken from their backpack on a bus while they were sleeping.
