Looking for some advice on how to handle this situation… My boyfriend of 10+ months is divorced (6 years total) with 3 kids. He has a very amicable relationship with his ex. Two of his 3 kids have birthdays 5 days apart coming up next month. In lieu of a party, they asked for a weekend at a hotel/indoor water park. They have done this in the past. However, he asked how I felt about him sharing a room with his ex and kids, with separate beds. Continued…

My wife got a job that requires us to relocate to San Diego. We have never lived there and know little about the city. We are planning to rent. We stayed in a hotel in little Italy and really loved the vibe there, but it’s too expensive for us. Are there other neighborhoods with similar vibes - restaurants, bars, lively, good for walking, clean, safe, young, diverse and accessible that are more affordable? Please share recommendations. How much should we reasonably budget to rent a 2bd/2bath?

Those of you who have went from having no car to having a car in the city...do you have any regrets? Even before Covid, I’ve often felt so “stuck” without a car, but I‘ve always been too cheap to seriously consider it. (Should mention that I don’t travel much for work, so that might make a difference in answers in the bowl.) Is it life changing!?

Landlord is raising my rent by $436/month next year - a 21% increase! Horrible!
I thought the housing market cooling down would have prevented a huge increase, even with inflation. I want to buy, but my wealth is tied up in the markets so I can’t afford a sizable down payment right this second. Where did you pull your down payments from?
My wife and I each have our 401ks through Vanguard. What fund should we allocate them to? And why? It seems like the wisdom is to just allocate 100% to the 50, 55 or 60 fund.
Thoughts on ARK innovation ETF?
I have a sort of stupid question. Internet trolls, please refrain from stampeding me if you can. My question— at what point do you spend your money? I am such a saver. I save and save and save. Even if I do a big trip or buy something big for the house, I still do it from my income/not my savings. When are you guys spending out of savings? I feel like I’ve brainwashed myself a bit and I’m going to be 90 years old still squirreling money away and not using it.
If I buy a car and finance it, but may no longer need it in 1-2 years, is it relatively easy to sell back to a dealer? I live in a city and haven’t had a car, but moving to suburbs for about a year. Thanks
I invested $4000 into my Roth IRA through august of this year. Then I learned that my income is too high to contribute anything to a Roth in 2022. Am I screwed or can I sell $4k worth of investments and transfer it out?
Hi all! I’m new to stock market and I was wondering if any of you could give me advice on which stock to buy? Especially the market is low right now! TIA!!

Anyone ever dealt with fraud at Marcus? Had to call three times to get them to even initiate the process, now I have to mail in a written statement, and it can take up to 45 days for a decision.

I'm selling my home before the end of the year. What can I do to maximize profit before I have to pay tax on it?
My understanding is this classifies as short term capital gain. Is there anything I can offset? Is my understanding correct that if I have long term losses (from sale of stocks), I can't allocate against this?

At what point does it make sense to turn over my investments to a financial advisor?
I’m currently invested in a S&P 500 index and I’m paying very little in fees. I’ve heard advisors can be expensive but I would expect them to outperform the S&P 500 because of their price

Chase is offering 100k pts right now, and I think the chase ecosystem is more robust.
You can also get chase bonuses again after 48 months if you downgrade your account where Amex bonuses are one and done (you’re never eligible again)
Bonus is probably better for chase rn
But i have amex gold main expenses are groceries & restaurants so if thats your thing bonus is pretty good on that as well
All depends on what you spend on
I have both. Chase is the best way to go right now. Promo code if you need one: Enjoy Our Best Offer Ever! Earn 100,000 bonus points with Chase Sapphire Preferred. https://www.referyourchasecard.com/m/6c/6L5/GJZB/1568545450
I have both. Use Amex exclusively for groceries, chase for everything else
Definitely both. The bonus categories for the Amex gold are too good to pass up, and your best value would be transferring to airlines.
Sapphire preferred is a must have as well for their transfer partners (my favorite transfer is to hyatt where you can get insane value for points), and the ease of use if you want to use it at 1.25 value. Additionally, if you hold the sapphire you should also get the $0 annual fee freedom unlimited, which gets 1.5% casback, which you can combine with your sapphire points to get even more value.
Check out The Points Guy for more info.
Best every day spend card is the Amex blue small business. $0 fee and $2x on everything up to $50k
