People who work in consulting.. how do you manage to travel to your home country? I’m in a project right now that ends in a month. It’s so hard to get a drop box appointment or a visa interview appointment for stamping and of course cannot travel in the middle of a project. It’s challenging to plan around this. Would love some insights into how y’all plan around visa appointments, projects and utilization.

Hello Everyone, i am working as a contractor with ZS and now i wanted to come to zs office. Will ZS reimburse all my expenses including travel and stay for a month.

I have the Amex Bonvoy card ($95 annual fee) and am thinking of canceling it. Not really sure if it's worth keeping it considering how little the Marriott points are worth.
One downside I see is that I have had this card since '97 (my first card) and I read that credit score considers average age of cards so am concerned that might take a hit. Thoughts on canceling?
Secondly, what are the best cashback cards nowadays if I don't want to pay an annual fee?
TIA!
