I'm killing it with the AMEX business platinum promos (not corp plat). Effectively 10% return on hotels and flights EXPENSES (5 points per dollar, 2 cents redemption on airline travel).... I intended to dump the card after the 100k bonus and after deleting my MR cache, but I just may keep out with these indefinite promos running.

Living in Van. Previously lived in Toronto. Obviously rent prices are high as is cost of living. Generally go out and spend more often living in a city. Boyfriend and I on good salary but not saving much due to the above. Before we move home to our own country, we’d love to spend a year close to Vancouver where rent is cheaper, temptation is less, to save. A commute to Vancouver 1-2 times a month needs to be possible (his job). That can be a flight if it’s not crazy. Thoughts? Recommendations?

While the age of pensions has almost entirely been eliminated, I fortunately have one that is still actively accruing 2% for every year of service.

Appreciate any insight.

Hi Fishes,

I am about to join a new org in a few days and they have planned a travel to Europe for me to get Technical KT. But the thing is they said only for 2 weeks. They are going to file a business visa(I can stay up to 90 days). I want to spend some more time there( atleast 2 months). How I can convince them to increase this duration? Since I will be new there I'm not sure what to say. Only thing I know at this time is, the project is a bit complex and all developers are outside India.

Some say it's much tougher to do so under CA law but wonder if anyone has any insights. Banks won't likely care about analyst signing bonuses, but associate bonus at EB with diversity bonus can be significant. If she quits before, she won't be going to another bank.

I bought Lufthansa bulkhead seats which are actually listed as preferred seats on the 747-8.

Now they want to charge me more for bulkhead seats. Odds this works? I’m thinking 1/100.

PS there is more to the email about how I select seats for each aircraft methodically, would’ve never bought preferred seats for the A340, yada yada yada
