Re: Amazon now offers free shipping to Chile

Yeah, just tried the Gift Voucher purchase, it was immediately declined. Won't even bothering to contact BancoEstado, its more trouble than its worth.

Re: Amazon now offers free shipping to Chile

Just don't try ordering on Amazon through a BancoEstado CuentaRUT Visa card, even if foreign payments have been activated. Would you share why? Was thinking about that. Nothing much to say, really. I reauthorized the foreign purchase feature on the BancoEstado website, but the sale still didn't go ...

Have used them quite often in the past, never had a problem.

Re: Self-service gas station

Are both license plates blocked because it is under a criminal investigation? Did the authorities block them or ask the different websites to block them? The plates are visible on both vehicles. But the camera doesn't have the resolution to display them clearly. The whole image is only 576x320 pixe...

Re: Elections April 2021

That had me worried. But no, voting isn't compulsory:

Re: The Big Patagonia Resettlement Idea

Reminds me of a long-gone poster on this forum who proposed settling in the Patagonian wilderness with his child bride. He ended up being quite rude when he met the inevitable polite scepticism. He called me a metrosexual faggot, an insult I fondly remember. :)

He was a troll, of course.

For something like those screens, you could get them from Aliexpress from a lot of vendors.
If you see a listing marked "International" as the top pic shows, that's exactly what those MercadoLibre resellers are doing.

Re: International shipping unreliable

A few years ago I read about someone who received a package from family in Europe. When opened, there was a bag of Chilean candy replacing the weight of items removed. Among other household effects, we had a Casio keyboard shipped here. When it was unpacked, the instrument had been removed and repl...

Re: mailing from Chile to US and vice versa

If its any consolation, England isn't a sovereign state either.

Reino Unido followed by the Postcode works for me.

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

There is no debate here. The facts are that many people maximise the positive of Allende or Pinochet and there are people that maximise the negatives of both. Some are doing it from an ideological perspective and some are doing it from just remembering what was done to them or for them Quite a lot ...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

Pinochet was thoroughly demonized by the Communists on a worldwide scale. They were so successful that even his ideological successors have disassociated themselves from his image. The same weaponization of Human Rights is ongoing with Piñera and his government who are routinely catalogued as Assass...
