Well normally I see others in Egypt, India, and so on receive PIP first and then the next day the US will receive theirs. I am hoping PIP tomorrow for everyone. Fingers are crossed! If it doesn't happen, then that means we won't see it our payment until 28th 29th or 30th! The 28th is a long way away.
Google is reliable. We aren't suppose to get payment until 30th, but they pay early, around the 25th. So alot of people expect payment around 25th. We start these posts so people can give us the heads up of when we will receive payment. We rely on ourselves to let each other know so we know what day to expect payment. Its kind of fun to talk to other people too.
Practically there is absolutely no reason not to and for the rest of the world it is a normal day AND for bankers/traders many are still working and the global system does not stop for the US eating turkeys/whatever.
How can banks not allow incoming funds BUT are prepared to allow outgoing payments?
They can't have it both ways to suit themselves and if anyone has this kind of problem...go and kick a$$ at the bank.
