500 Million New Passports on Marriotts Dime?

Last week news broke that 500 million Marriott customers had their personal data exposed resulting from one of the largest hacks in US history, and the fallout is only getting worse.

Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer says Marriott should be on the hook for the $110 cost of renewing every effected customer’s passport. The reason, the AP reports, is that they are now more susceptible to identity theft to no fault of their own.  Marriott, however, did respond saying it would reimburse individuals if they do experience fraud as a result of the data hack.

 

Marriott urges customers who believe they have been effected by the breach to complete the enrollment process on the website and call center which they’ve set up together with Kroll, the firm they partnered with to deal with the aftermath.

Walmart’s Website Crashes As Soon As Black Friday Deals Begin…

When the clock struck midnight on Thursday, November 22, Walmart let the Black Friday deals loose.  It appears they didn’t accurately predict how many shoppers they would actually have, and as a result the website crashed.

It seems like a case of too many great deals, attracting a myriad of eager deal shoppers and just not enough server support.   Many shoppers were reporting in-stock items showing out-of-stock when they reach the checkout page.  Others have reported their shopping cart pages freezing up and preventing them from completing checkout.  So patience seems to be the key for the early deal seekers this Thanksgiving.

 

Walmart is one of the leaders when it comes to Black Friday deal shopping, and at TheDealExperts we are updating you hourly on the best deals being offered. Be sure to check back!

 

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

*Alert* CDC Warns Not To Eat Romaine Lettuce Amid New Nationwide E. Coli Outbreak!

The CDC has issued a new warning to US consumers nationwide to avoid eating romaine lettuce. This new outbreak carries a “particularly dangerous type of E. Coli contamination”, which has already infected 32 people across 11 sates, the Washington Post reports.

 

You can read more about this warning here from the WaPo:

The CDC recommends Americans to take precautions with these tips:

  • Consumers who have any type of romaine lettuce in their home should not eat it and should throw it away, even if some of it was eaten and no one has gotten sick.  

– This advice includes all types or uses of romaine lettuce, such as whole heads of romaine, hearts of romaine, and bags and boxes of precut lettuce and salad mixes that contain romaine, including baby romaine, spring mix, and Caesar salad.

– If you do not know if the lettuce is romaine or whether a salad mix contains romaine, do not eat it and throw it away.

– Wash and sanitize drawers or shelves in refrigerators where romaine was stored. 

– CDC is advising that consumers do not eat any romaine lettuce because no common grower, supplier, distributor, or brand of romaine lettuce has been identified.

  • Restaurants and retailers should not serve or sell any romaine lettuce, including salads and salad mixes containing romaine.
