Yeah that locked-in credit card sucks because I wanted to switch to a card with a higher cash back percentage.  Although... not like an extra 1.5% cash back on a $12 bundle is going to make or break the value considering I end up buying maybe three or four of these per year.

Can you switch it to paypal?  Then you could pick your card on the fly

I'm getting a new iPad for the first time in what feels like a decade so I'm excited to check out some games that will function better than on my Galaxy as well as things available only on iOS.

The big one I'm hoping to get into is Civilization VI. I like turned based games that are fully fleshed out where I don't have to use some virtual joystick. Does Civ VI go on sale often?

Any other recommendations where gameplay just works great on an iPad and is more advanced than most phone games?

Looks like the DLC is on sale again right now for 10$ for the full game unlock, at least thats what my notice said

Ill throw my hat the tv ring. So a month ago I wanted to replace my old 1080p 40in office tv and do a proper mounting with a nice new 4k one. Since it was also the office tv I didnt see a need to spend an extravagant amount so that threw me into the realm of the upper budget tvs.

 

I landed on the 55in tcl 6 series, 55r625.  I went back and forth between that and the cheaper hisense, from what I could tell the TCL had bit better all around specs but the hisense was ~150$ cheaper. I actually leaned towards the hisense because I prefer android tv and its ability to load whatever you want over the roku interface of only a certain selection of apps all of which may disappear at any time (like the twitch one which is gone). 

 

In the end I went TCL though because the mounting pattern on all the hisense tvs is somewhat non-standard (300x200) and so you need a specific mount that can do odd configurations like that and I already owned a tv mount to use.  Plus the picture quality was a bit better on the TCL and figured I could just keep using my firestick4k for android stuffs. Also the input lag being lower on the TCL is a plus since I can use the pc on one of the other inputs.

 

So far Ive definitely been pleased with it, great picture quality and improved sound (my old panasonic tv had horrible sound).  I mostly avoid the interface anyway since I just use a cable box and the firestick4k and that has my needs covered
