I’m in the middle of status challenges right now if that makes you feel any better. Let’s hope we can all stay healthy and get this under control quickly, and then chase the points after!

Same. 🤷‍♂️

Just buy gift cards

Don’t buy prepaid visa / MasterCard gift cards. Store gift cards / Amazon gift cards are just fine.

They may extend the period. Or you may be able to ask for an extension.

Buy a peloton

I am watching the RNC convention after watching some of the DNC convention last week. They are opposite. It does seem to me that RNC is much less negative and alive. DNC was brutal & came across as fake due to the prerecorded events. If this convention continues like this I expect Trump to pick up a couple points. I prefer positive politics over negative from Biden.

I have about 190K total (loans are my only debt) and am of the group that’s fine paying off slower overtime for more cash flow now but w/ interest so high I’m thinking paying itwould put me ahead?!

Question— do you share your comp with close friends? Me and my roommate have been friends forever and while I don’t really share my specific pay, Im not sure if I should share it with her.

She asked me if I knew what my raise would be and I just told her the % but not the actual amount. Is that unnecessarily secretive? We’re in diff industries too.
