I bought an engagement ring with the store CC and was given 6 months no interest. Well that six months is almost up, and I'd love to be able to get my CC's 1% cash-back. Problem is, if I transfer the money to my CC, I don't get the 1% back.
I have the money and can pay it off, but 1% is a significant amount and I'd like to finagle that 1% into my wallet if at all possible.
Is there anything I can do?
Thanks for the help,

Any Advice on the best way to sell a ring and not get ripped off? A friend of mine has an engagement ring he would like to sell (the relationship died some time ago, before he popped the question). It was originally worth $2,500 and he would like to maximize his return. Clearly, a pawn shop is not the way to go, but neither of us know what other options there are.

ProductFilter: I'd like a phone with a digital answering machine that can be set to be absolutely silent by default, but which will ring if the caller enters a numeric password. [more inside]

In Arthur C. Clarke's novel, "3001: The Final Odyssey
", he postulates the idea of a "ring around the world", an artificial ring surrounding the entire globe, sitting in geostationary orbit, connected to the Earth with four space elevator towers at 90 degree intervals.
Has anyone ever rendered or painted what this would look like from space, or on Earth?

I have the key to get into my apartment. The key to open my apartment complex's gym. The one for the pool. The remote to open the gate to the complex. The mailbox key. My Albertson's Preferred Savings card. My car key. My car remote. My office key. Two random keys that unlock things I'm not sure I even own anymore, but other than that, I use all these keys on a daily basis. My keyring currently composes half the bulk of my outfit on any given day. Please help me. [more inside]

There's already been a question on AskMe about engagement ring advice, but I'm looking for something a little different. My buddy just spent $10,000 on an engagement ring because his fiance is feeling the pressure of being a brand new attorney in NYC and wanting to look the part. He didn't want to, but he did it anyway, cause her family was giving her the "If he loves you, he'd spend the money" spiel and it was really getting to her.
What could he have done at that point? She's a great girl, just a little prone to doing what her family wants her to do, so "RUN" isn't an appropriate response. Also, what is an appropriate price? $10,000 is about two months salary, but it seems extreme.
Google's not really any help....strangers who I've interacted with (ala MeFites) are significantly better than strangers I have not (ala some random webpage).

Whenever a cellphone rings on a TV Show, I momentarily think it's my cellphone ringing -- or, if it doesn't sound like mine, some other phone in the same room as me. I don't just think this because the sound sounds like a phone; I think it because it sounds like the ringing is coming from outside the TV -- from closer to me than the other sounds coming from the TV set. Has anyone else experienced this? What causes this auditory illusion?
