What announcement ?

likefunny

Only downside I can think of is that they may announce point dilution that would detract from SPG’s attractiveness. You would then have opened a new line of credit for a lackluster reward.

I dont think the changes will go into effect until the end of this year so you might be able to hear the proposed changes and decide if you want the card

Hasn’t that been happening for some time already ?

I'd like the answer to this question as well please...

Should we be transferring the points to Marriott to make most of the 1:3 points rate?

Interviewing for a great position in industry (tech). They have equity comp & great benefits. Spoke to their HR, then interviewed with 2 people in the tax department and am getting scheduled for a next round of interviews. The only problem is: the office is about 1 hr from my house (I own). They said repeatedly that they want someone who will be in the office 5 days a week. I would actually move but can’t rent out my place now due to some repairs going on that will take 4-5 months. Thoughts?

I have been networking but my conversations have translated into involvement in pursuits/leads.

ITW Illinois Tool Woks is another loser. I'm sharing all active trades. this is another re-opening trade. I opened this at the end of November, and the long is down about 45%. The trade is only down about 15% though as the shorts have been rolled a few times already. Since I have 82 more days in the long, I can roll the shorts at least 7 times and even at $1 each the trade is a small winner. If TIW even goes down another 50% it becomes a decent winner.
