If I fly American for 44 weeks out of the year, and I get 2 biscoff cookies per flight, and I take 4 flights a week, then I eat 352 biscoff cookies in a year 🍪

One reason to not fly American. AA miles expire but United, Delta, Southwest and JetBlue don't.

Have 145k AAdvantage miles saved up for a 2 person Japan trip next summer. Cutting it close the saver rates of 35k per person per flight, which could hinder flight flexibility. It worth getting another SUB, or is this usually a good enough stockpile for 2 people?

First time flying American in years. So no status. What are the other costs, charge for bags, pay for choosing seats, etc? And any work arounds? Usually fly southwest, but they do not offer service to where I’m flying. TIA

I’ve already hit annual spend for AA gold but need about 7700 EQMs (only at 15 EQS so that won’t cut it). Based on research a $400 flight is least expensive way to hit Gold. Worthwhile?

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
