I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card. My meal expenses are per diem so I'm thinking about the AmEx Gold card as it has 4x points on dining. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on personal cards for consultants and how to go about my corporate card as well! TIA
Just wondering if this triple dip would work: Book Marriott hotel through United MileagePlus Shopping giving 1 mile per $, Marriott points for stay and 6 points per $ for using Bonvoy Brilliant card?
Please DM me if you are looking on selling Marriott points. I am short on points for a vacation
I have no idea what to do with all these old etihad airlines blankets, but I also don’t feel like throwing them away because they are warm.
Which is better: waiting Day if to switch flights on American Airlines or calling a couple days before? I don’t have status (I know bad me) so I can’t switch for free.

Hi fishes - I’m with an MBB as a 2y Partner looking to move to B4, for a bunch of reasons. In active conversations with two of them. While compensation levels seem similar for now, the other posts on this bowl suggest we end up making more at B4 than MBB. (Referring to the 1.5M number of a y4 partner at b4). What is the real trajectory that people here have seen at B4? And how much of that is bonus - base - other components?
I have a date tomorrow after an important meeting with my client. I won't have time to change before. What should I wear that will take me from day to night? I'm female BTW
Has anyone had the conversation on how we get Ss and Ts ready for returning in the fall? I’m not talking about mask usage, hand washing times, physical distancing in classrooms, etc. I don’t think we can expect Ts and Ss to come back and just hop right into academics. Need sometime to process together, get some SEL, be face to face social again, etc. Just wondering if districts out there have gotten a head start on this task.

🙋♂️Raise your hand if you think you’ve had COVID but never tested positive or tested positive for antibodies in the last 8 months.
