Flex Flees Nussbaum

– Photo by LDP

It seems that Nussbaum will not be accepting your CUID as payment for breakfast this morning, so best go start looking for that 5-spot in your other jeans. 

According to the nice people behind the counter, this was not an act of Flex-deserting a la everywhere else, but a simple case of a broken machine.

Unfortunately, no information is available on when (or *gasp* whether) the machine will be fixed. 

Here’s to a quick recovery, Nussbaum Flex, and to daddy paying for that bagel.

    @.... it wasn’t working at milano yesterday either. not that i care, but just an addition to the story.

  • again says:

    @again this is CUIT’s fault. the system underlying flex needs to be changed. it’s completely outdated. dozens of other schools have much better systems

  • agreed says:

    @agreed Chipotle had the same deal yesterday afternoon. Off-campus Flex is a joke. Everyone, the buyer and seller and especially the people waiting in line, hate it. I understand that every new system will have its issues but Flex is actually getting worse with time.

  • the same says:

    @the same vendor, Blackboard, runs NYU CampusCash. why aren’t there any problems down there?

  • Ridiculous says:

    @Ridiculous Why does a simple transaction that takes ~3 seconds on a credit card take 30 or more on Flex? Why is it down for prolonged periods? If we want vendors to accept it, it should be ultra-reliable. Remember when HamDel took Flex? Now Westside is running away and the system is broken. Someone should be fired. Oh wait, this is Columbia – they’ll be promoted instead.

  • i wonder if this says:

    @i wonder if this whole flex dilemma is scary to aj…at least hell have another thing to complain about

  • alsow says:

    @alsow why does CU feel the need to charge vendors using flex more than credit card companies charge? What kind of incentive is that?
