Adjacent topic: does anybody have experience they can share with the ‘Save Wealth Premium’ credit card? Conceptually it could be rewarding for high spenders, but seems to not be part of the credit rewards dialogue.

Men in relationships, how much do you spend average per month with your girlfriend? Talking dinners, activities, etc.
We do split costs but most costs tend to fall on me. I've noticed my saving rate going down considerably.
We're having fun and no regrets but I'm realizing my credit card bill per month is very high. 3-4k per month on 150k salary.
Has anyone flown out of Stanstead recently? Have a flight to Spain next week so wondering how early to get to the airport with Covid protocols and the fact that we’re no longer in the EU
Interested in your opinions. Last year I took a government job. Before I was working as an independent consultant and netting more - obviously without pension and benefits though. (Lost work due to pandemic.) With extra medical expenses this year (outside of government insurance) I realize I’m simply not making enough money to do what I want and need to to (medical + travel + investing). Everyone tells me to stay for security and WLB.

Recently received 80k offer for Amex Gold and 150k offer for Platinum. Currently use CSR for travel and dining, which we will downgrade later this year as wife got CSP for 100k bonus (which we might upgrade to CSR to keep 1.5x redemption). Considering Gold for groceries (family of 4) and potentially for dining over CSP/CSR. With groceries, 4x return will just offset AF. Have no exp with MP. Worth getting gold? Can I later (next month) also get Platinum for bonus for when travel starts again?

Need advice. I’m at a small consulting firm and was hired for a specific project and it’s a huge mess. We are a big team with different sub-teams and our entire team is just an unorganized mess and our client is hostile and extremely unwelcoming and unhelpful. My core teammates and I I sit around going wtf are we supposed to be doing all day and our team lead seems as lost as we are. I get the scope of work, why I’m there, all of that, but the rest is clear as mud. One teammate already (cont)
