Consultant with loads of points, any suggestions for honeymoon spots in winter? Outside USA.
Looking for a last minute trip for the July 4th week using AA miles and SPG points. Any ideas? Thinking Florida, Mexico or Grand Caymans

Is the a black market for rewards points? I want to get rid of my delta points for either American or Marriott points
If I can’t earn airline or hotel status, might as well get top tier status with Chick-Fil-A. Does this mean I’ve made it? And don’t judge the points—I just used a bunch of them. Lol
Currently working on plan C of a honeymoon as we don’t expect to be able to go Europe in June/July as hoped. Plan A and B were variations of Italy (relax) and Spain (mountain biking). Hoping to use bonvoy points. Any US centered suggestions? Maybe refocusing on golf/warmth/spa/food now.
Shout out to all the staff online at 10:30 right now. Bonus points if you haven’t cried today.

someone save this attorneys job. I hired an attorney with 5 years experience. I send her assignments and usually the law we're using. She never reads the breifs or memos we've prepared. Does her own research and usually misses the points. When I ask why she says she's intimidated by the memos etc and they're "hard". That drove me up a wall. We don't get paid to do easy things. Just because it's hard you give up? WTF.
I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card.

Any recs on finding a good tutor for GMAT? Should I look a different place for quant vs. verbal tutors, or are there tutors that can help with both? Also, is it realistic to think I can get someone for $150 an hour, or is that too low? Lastly, how many tutoring sessions do you think are necessary to reap the benefits? (Lots of Qs, sorry!) For context, am considering using a tutor specifically to help tighten up weak points between my 1st and 2nd sitting

For those who make significantly more money than their partners and don’t have kids — how do you a handle money? What are the tension points? Anything you’d do differently?
How do you keep from getting discouraged while job hunting? I’ve had 3 final round interviews in the past month and gotten passed over each time. Their reasoning is always “we went in a different direction”. Each of the interview processes was 4-5 interviews so it’s a big time commitment and really gotten my hopes up each time.
What are the best virtual tools for CM? I've used intuition and visual assessment prior to COVID. Now we find we need to more trust on how the client views the change needed (or not recognizing the need).

🐠 friends - anyone make money off a side hustle? $1K/month would be fantastic, but I'd settle for even $100. Before you judge, I had some unexpected medical bills, racking up an extra $6K in cc debt
