Why bother

I almost never shop in Chicago. I order most everything from Amazon. Why bother to traipse to a store when I get free shipping and great service from online stores.

  • Is this as a spawn of the Bye Bye Best Buy thread?

  • Nice humble brag Kelly. After viewing your picture I guess "power" lifting must be relative huh?

The recent crime spree started about 11:45 p.m. Tuesday when roughly 10 people walked into a 7-Eleven at 801 S. State St., prosecutors said.

The man was concerned by the group's "loud, rude behavior," prosecutors said, and tried moving to a different train car as the "L" passed through the 800 block of North Milwaukee Avenue.

Police were able to arrest six members of the group, including two juveniles, about 2 a.m. Wednesday in the 500 block of South State Street, court records show.

RCN customers on northide

Say, have any of you RCN'ers out there suddenly felt like your cable/internet bill is getting too high on a monthly basis?! Mine now has reached the 160.00/mo level!!
Carefully checking the recent fees on the bill, I see where premium sports channels like COMCAST SPORTSNET have suddenly raised their monthly, which alone has raised my bill now from 150.00 160.00/mo!!....Thoughts?

  • I dropped them many years ago for that exact reason. The prices were getting outrageous. When I called to tell them that I'm thinking of switching they did nothing to keep me, literally nothing. So I switched to AT&T who treats me better and I can negotiate with. A month...

    I dropped them many years ago for that exact reason. The prices were getting outrageous. When I called to tell them that I'm thinking of switching they did nothing to keep me, literally nothing. So I switched to AT&T who treats me better and I can negotiate with. A month after I switched I started getting calls from RCN customer retention asking to come back sbd telling me they revamped their plans. I told them I really wanted to give them a chance but they didn't want to hear about it so stop calling me.

  • RCN raises its Internet prices $5 a year. After a few years, I was paying $45 for 10 MBPS. When I saw an ad on TV for Comcast Internet for $20 a month for 25 MBPS, I called instantly and switched. Comcast requires customers to buy a modem and pay an installation fee. After eight months with Comcast, I am now breaking even on the savings and will begin saving money.

Rahm??

We've been away for about a month and it seems the #ResignRahm movement has disappeared. Please tell me that's not true.

  • William Martin Bucktown resident since 2007

    Martin Luther King Jr. used to inconvenience a lot of people.

  • Well please keep impeding people's free movement and let me know how that affects Rahm's decision to retire or effects his ability to do his crappy version of being a mayor.
