Re: Third party retrieval of a Vale Vista using power of Atty

According to the BCI, you can do it, in theory at least.

Re: Third party retrieval of a Vale Vista using power of Atty

Some years ago, one of our clients informed us that he had paid an outstanding bill by Vale Vista, and we could pick it up at a local Banco Santander. When we want to the bank, they told us that we needed an authorization. When I, (as the legal rep of our company) asked who was supposed to authorize...

Re: Election Constitution 2021

This morning's statement by Pamela Jiles marked a new low. Filthy gutter language, vote solicitation (in favour of her husband, no less), insults and threats to destroy what's left of the Pension system all in less than 30 seconds live on TV. Looking on the bright side, that little speech only lesse...

Re: Election Constitution 2021

I voted Rechazo, and nothing has happened since then to make me think I was wrong. Constitutional change forced through with bully-boy tactics, playing on populist resentments and making unrealistic promises is not the way to go. pretty much anyone with a "eco" green, bla, bla, bla environmental rel...

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.
