Is the SO a girlfriend or wife? This would impact how I'd approach the situation

like

So this is just me A wife gets a lot more access to my points than a GF. I'd use the points guy valuation chart to show / compare how much points are worth vs dollars and see if it makes sense to use points or dollars. However, with my wife there needs to be a clear plan/goal with points otherwise she could care less about holding onto to points. In our case it's an upcoming trip to Europe but that's just us. A GF doesn't get any say in my points. This is obviously past tense since I'm married now

My husband is a consultant and he doesn't get it 😂 He thinks when we pay with points it's free, so why would we ever want to pay with cash if we have that option!!!

Mine wants to have a girls weekend, and pay using my Marriott points. The redemption rate is terrible at about .5 cpp. When I offered to just pay with cash, she feels bad about it and wants to cancel the trip entirely.

Happy wife, happy life. Just let the points go.

Comps ar a casino, or cash back on a credit card. Liken it to spending one dollar, and getting something worth 50 cants with it or 1.50. You want to spend it wisely.

So glad my girlfriend is also in consulting

Senior privacy associate in BigLaw considering a move in-house. Would love to get some data points regarding in-house comp. I realize that a move in-house will entail a significant pay cut, and was wondering what is the highest you’ve seen for in-house privacy (or tech trans plus privacy) positions requiring less than 10 years of experience? (I am assuming they would be at FAANG?) My BigLaw total comp for this year would be $395k- just trying to prepare myself for what the pay cut will look like
