I Got A Payout... Yipee

Airbnb really stuck it to hosts with Flexible or Moderate cancellation policies. I guess I got lucky. Had the guest cancelled 12 hours earlier, I would have gotten zero.


I have been notified that my monthly payout for a March cancellation will be $66.60 for a $535 booking.

And my $1200 “stimulus” check was direct deposited this morning.

Now if I could only find some organic whole wheat flour for making bread…

I got some payment for reservations cancelled up to 8 April. Since my policy is strict but all were cancelled more than 7 days before the checkin date, I am receiving 25% of what I would have received had people cancelled normally which would be 50%. Then I had one which is not eligble since they booked after 14 March and then found they could not enter the country. So I gave them a full refund under a different criterion.

Glad to hear you got some stimulus cash.

If you’re looking for flour, check your local bakeries and restaurants. Some places around me have been selling bags of flour.

Yes, here too! I found out by asking my neighbors on NextDoor @NordlingHouse, when someone else specifically posted looking for flour.

There’s drama and bickering like there is on any forum :wink:, but it has been useful during the pandemic. Maybe ask your neighbors on there.

Got loads here, I’ll pop out tomorrow, get you a few kilos and email it to you.

Now, yeast, that’s another story. Fortunately I’m well stocked and have a starter on the go.


i got $39. After about $4,000 in lost earnings. :persevere:
