20k points for an overnight cancellation due to plane defect on American. Is that reasonable or can I ask for more?

Higher end of what I’ve seen

I’ve received 25,000 points plus my hotel, rental car, and meals reimbursed from Delta before. Look to get money and points if you have high enough status.

20k American miles are more valuable than delta miles tho

Seems reasonable

They offered 20k and expense reimbursement. I asked for an additional 20k on top. This was on Valentine’s Day FYI.

I’m a rookie who joined McK out of undergrad a month ago. Have never done anything with points/rewards for hotels/airlines. Where do I start? Make accounts for Marriott and all the airlines? Thanks :)


Seems like I can never get good redemption rates with Bonvoy points and after a year haven’t been able to use much. Saw that you can sell 100k points on eBay for about $700 after fees...worth it?


Hot take: $1M net worth is very attainable by all the consultants on this app. Consulting is in the top 5-10% (or better) paying jobs in the US. $1M net worth would put you in the top 6-8% as a 35-45 year old in the US. While everyone starts at different points (i.e student debt) and has different life circumstances resulting in different timelines, consulting provides solid income to allow you to save, invest and build wealth, if you choose.

What’s the general consensus (if it exists) about buying points on a mortgage loan? If it helps, I’m getting quoted at 2.875 rate but can buy a little over a point for 9k to get the rate down to 2.625% (loan is a little over 700k). How do I best think about this? I’m expecting this to be a long term home (20+ years ideally unless something goes awry)

Thoughts on living in Hoboken? I currently have apt in East Village but haven’t moved due to covid and lease expires soon. I’m starting to like the idea of Hoboken, especially since my office will be in Hudson Yards. Post-covid, I also think I’m less tied to living inside Manhattan too. I want space and feel like I could maybe even keep my car with me in Hoboken. Seems generally cheaper too, but I’m less concerned about price than quality of life. Would definitely prefer more bang for $. Thanks!

Has anyone successfully talked to their neighbors about noise during this time? New neighbors moved in and their footsteps are driving me crazy. Didn’t have this issue with the neighbor before, I don’t think they have any rugs down. I already blare my tv, use white noise etc to try to drown it out, but I still hear it. Talked to the office but nothing has been done and I would talk to them personally, but concerned with covid situation.
