But the local hiperLider still no longer accepts cash for the self-service checkout so I waited in line today for a human to handle the evil cash.
I'm still trying to understand the reasoning behind that one :?

Noone else has complained about cash yet, so it probably was just that one almacen.

Re: Banco de Chile deposits through Servipag or ServiEstado? and related stuff

Thanks mem and eeuu. It might just be that one almacen that wasn't taking cash. I left after they said I couldn't deposit cash with CajaVecina (not MultiCaja like I originally wrote), and didn't try buying anything. Noone else has refused cash yet.

Re: Banco de Chile deposits through Servipag or ServiEstado? and related stuff

I thought about risking my life today, to take the bus to a ServiEstado. But they're only open until 2 now on saturdays, so that didn't work. My next option was to make deposits at the local CajaVecina. Last time I checked, they only allowed 100.000 per day, but it's better than nothing. Except now ...

Re: Don't be scared, be prepared.

I've been walking instead of taking colectivos or micros just to avoid particular cantagion zones. But it is already out there, we will all be exposed to it in time no matter what precautions, keep your immune system strong, don't engage in microbial concentrating dangerous activities and live your...

Re: Don't be scared, be prepared.

after a series of bugs circulating in our circle this year, as soon as we all started hiding we started getting better. no planes. no kids in school. not interacting with anyone outside our campo, just the family. I'm trying to avoid buses, because I think that's where I pick up most bugs here. I"m...

Re: Don't be scared, be prepared.

Plus, all the vitamin C and other supplements and advice I passed on helped. I used to get sick back in Michigan, every time the seasons were changing. But I discovered that about a tablespoon of cinnamon each day prevented it. So I'm doing that now, along with some old zinc supplements, and old mu...

Re: Quarentines and fines

I'm getting a lot of stuff by email about the virus, that's only in an image (not text). So it can't be easily translated with something like google. I just hope it's not too important:)

Re: Don't be scared, be prepared.

plenty of those going around and flue season is just setting in. I just got over one that took about a month to shake. pretty much just a regular old cold. Thanks, that helps. I don't want to freak out too much over a typical cold:) According to what I was reading last night, you probably had 2 or ...

Re: Don't be scared, be prepared.

Does anyone know of any "normal" viruses, colds, etc. that are currently going around in Chile? I'm trying to decide now, how much to panic later, if I start getting sick.

Re: Banco de Chile deposits through Servipag or ServiEstado?

Dude, setup a Cuenta de Ahorros with BE and if need be, store excess of CuentaRUT limits in that account. A few here have been doing that for quite a while. Then everything is just done electronically no virus-laden cash needed just like TPTB want! I plan to set up another account eventually, but i...
