So my spg points and nights have still not merged with my Marriott account. Anyone else having this issue?

Recently passed the GCS exam this cycle- I understand people use this specialty to their advantage in a job app process but was wondering if anyone has asked their current employer for a higher rate for their specialty?

I received a phone call from Airtel Digital yesterday. They are looking for Java Backend Engineers. The HR asked me about my NP. I honestly told them 90 days, but they are looking for someone to join in 45 days. I told her that I could finish my work in 60 days and join Airtel in 60 days, but she was not agreeing. She told me to start servicing notice.
The question is, how can I convince HR?
I have a total of 1.3 years of experience.

I can’t justify these annual fees for travel cards given I’m traveling less and frankly the airlines are getting to be such crap. So I’m transitioning to cash back. I see BofA has a 1.5% cashback card with no annual fee and you can get a 75% boost (to 2.62%) with 100k on deposit w BofA or Merrill. So I’m considering moving my retirement savings to Merrill for this deal. Has anyone done this? Have reservations or thoughts?
