TDS Ending Its Rewards Program, Has Bill Pay Problems & Appears, In General, To Be Floundering!

The TDS online Bill Pay system was NOT working for 4-days! That is pretty basic stuff. Not being able get payments for 4 whole days is NOT good.

Then, while this was going on, they tell you that they are ending the Rewards Program!

Had a call from a TDS Supervisor Thursday morning. They are still messing around with my 15Mbs (backup/redundancy) Internet connection. I don’t really care because I use MetroCast’s 160Mbps Internet service for my work. I still won’t commit to their 1Gbps.

Heads Up: TDS plans to offer unbundled 1Gbps, in Alton, soon.

But, I get the feeling that TDS is struggling.

Just checked their stock performance (this being a stock I do not bother to follow).

NOT good. Recent results, last week, were not great.

Amazon has the same pre-order price with FREE shipping with Prime.

Got the TOP flyer, in an e-mail from ‘buydig.com‘ Friday morning. When I first saw it, given that ‘buydig.com‘ is noted for its “deals”, I fully expected to see an impossible to turn down, mouth-watering deal — maybe 4 interest free payments or 0% APR for 6 months. Nothing NADA. Just free shipping and some stuff about ‘Visa Checkout’ that has always confused me given that I have PayPal (and am an eBay shareholder). Or I thought they would offer a highly discounted price. Na!

I checked Amazon Prime. Same price, same FREE shipping.

So why would I get it from buydig.com?

Amazon, if I use their Storecard (which I do 80% of the time) gives me 6 months ZERO-INTEREST and 5% reward!

Plus why pre-order? I am sure I will not have to wait long to get one come August. So why start paying for one now.

Plus now I am having further doubts. The Sony RX10 II might now have this automated 4-step (or greater) PIXEL STEPPING/Stitching that you get on the latest DSLRs like the Pentax K3 II.

More to think about.
