He’s asking for people with United GS (Global Services), which is an invite-only frequent flier status, to upgrade his flight for him using a United upgrade currency (Plus Points). Source: I, a lowly 1K.

Why a GS? Would a 1k work?

Idk. United customer service told me an upgrade request from GS is prioritized over 1K. The fare code is different, not sure though.

Pretty obvious but has anyone else thought about the impact on effective comp that comes with the lack of travel, and the consequences for talent management? Banks are jacking base salaries to the moon, but our industry is barely budging.

Consider the loss of food expensing that had netted us hundreds of dollars per week. The lack of payment in lieu of travel on weekends. The rewards points/miles we’re not accruing. The tax-free nature of all of it. Is it any surprise we're hurting for talent?

Mortgage strategy question: moving from HCOL to MCOL city, selling current house and buying a new one. Will net enough equity from the sale for up to 20% down payment. How do you think about mortgage rates, points, PMI, etc for the new purchase? I'm in favor of putting less down and investing the difference, but not if the terms are worse.

And I'm talking with both a broker and a credit union - is one better than the other?
