So what's the deal with zoom anyway? Why is it so popular? Like why would a consumer opt to pay for this over the various free ones like...

Simple profiteering. I hope when all this is over, consumers boycott their brand for this behaviour.
02/04/2020 - 16:02
true, now that the borders are closed, it's really the local transmission stats that matters - but there doesn't seem to be any sources...

## Merged from [Have we past the worst of the pandemic?](/node/527249) In the past few days, it looks like whilst the numbers are still...

i didn't receive an email. They just changed my flight without telling me. Surely, if they cancel the flight, they have to offer a refund.
26/03/2020 - 15:17
Did your call them? I'm hoping I'll get a refund cause the flight is cancelled
25/03/2020 - 19:22
So just checked, it seems Virgin has cancelled my flight to the Gold Coast. However, they've moved me to a different flight - of course...
25/03/2020 - 16:16
So do that. I'm sure there's normal non pandemic usage of these masks. It must be the same with other things we need to stockpile. (Eg....
23/03/2020 - 11:19
Yeah so basically I'm just waiting till 48 hours before my flight. Hoping they'll either cancel it before then literature I'll get the...

Someone mentioned elsewhere the masks in the bushfires are different to the surgical masks we need now
21/03/2020 - 15:49
That's nuts. I completely agree if there is a shortage, it needs to go to the people on the front line. But also crazy there is a shortage...

I just asked this question regarding masks (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/525773) Wouldn't mind your expert opinion on the matter.
21/03/2020 - 15:19
The official advice regarding masks seems to be don't need it unless you're sick. I mean the first problem with this statement is that you...
21/03/2020 - 15:14
It's really naive to think it's just "hoarders". It's not - there is actually a shortage but the shortage isn't because of a decline in...

what happens if your broker goes broke? you hold the shares - they're just "brokering" a deal to buy or sell them for you.
18/03/2020 - 16:49
Don't just shut down the schools, the whole country should be in lockdown. It's absurd we haven't done this. I don't know what are we...

Actually, looks like it's changed now. https://newsroom.virginaustralia.com/release/virgin-australia-announces-new-measures-help-guests "If...

Note this is travel credit for international flights only. Domestic flights you only get to re-book for free (but still pay the difference...
16/03/2020 - 10:46
there's no way they'll retract the travel credit option after announcing it. I would just wait.
16/03/2020 - 10:39
damn, just saw that :( Now i'm going to have to hope the flights get cancelled completely.
16/03/2020 - 10:34
But it says "If they want to cancel their flight, they are eligible to receive credit to a Travel Bank with no cancellation fee"
16/03/2020 - 07:49
not really - they're just waiving change fees to change dates. Not as good as a travel credit.
15/03/2020 - 23:38
look up debt recycling. From a tax perspective, that's the best way you can buy stocks if you have a mortgage.
14/03/2020 - 22:53
What's the difference between this and the latest 2020 edition?
14/03/2020 - 17:24
Funny, I just did a quote on a few insurance companies. I can't find any that actually ask for existing damage to a car - almost like the...
12/03/2020 - 23:00
what safe investment gives me a guaranteed 10% return?
10/03/2020 - 22:42
huh, that's interesting, i never considered that. I just figured insurance companies would have that buying power to push down costs but I...
10/03/2020 - 21:32
i figured in 5 years, the car will be 8 years old - it'll probably be worth like $5000ish - getting to that price range where most people...
10/03/2020 - 21:13
yeah i think that's what they said. But they do want to assess it, so hopefully. I imagine not all insurers will allow this so might make...
