One way makes it a weekend that's much longer than 4 days...


Also- Mexico, Dominican, Puerto Rico, Montreal, Vancouver, San Francisco, New Orleans, Nashville, Miami- are all great options for 4 days.


Where are you flying from?

One way?

What do you want to do? See a big city? National monuments? Hiking?

Could be flexing back to client site

Syria. Free accommodations.

Syria haha. Flying from EWR or PHL. Not flexing because not on a travel client right now. One way or round trip. I'm sure round trip options for that many points are probably in the Midwest or bumblefuck

Turks and Caicos 5 hour flight. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

That's one way to Europe

Go to Puerto Rico

Too less wont find anything most likely

You'd be surprised, you can probably get round trip to Calgary and head out to banff. Might be able to pull Montreal or Quebec City. I've gotten Miami for 25k out of philly too

I've done a long weekend to Amsterdam for 34k points flying by Lot Airlines. Plus Norwegian now has $300 flights to a bunch of locations and Emirates has the sales for $800 (total) for 2 people JFK-Milan.

Time to declutter! Getting rid of stuff you don't need is proven to help reduce anxiety. Where do you start? Grab a box or trash sack and designate one for donation and one for trash. Do this at the beginning of the week and commit to filling both up by the end of the week. Post a before and after pick. This challenge is worth 5 points total.

Planning a one week trip to Yucatán. My first time in Mexico. Not a fan of big resorts. I’m an introvert, would love to find a quiet place to recharge. I looked at Palmul, which is between Cancun and Tulum. Does anyone know the area? I’d also love to drive around a bit. Maybe an overnight trip to Merida. Can I just get a rental car and explore? I’ll be traveling around alone. Female.


I have a few problems 🐠 help me out here: I’m 24, and have been with my gf for nearly 3 years. I feel she’s the one, and she wants to get married in the next 2 years. Now, my concerns: - If I get married soon, I’ll never be able to experience the single life again. I still want to travel and work abroad and have new adventures - We don’t see eye to eye on what our end goal is. I want a power couple, but she wants to be stay at home wife/mom after 30 All else, she’s perfect. What can I do here?

Feel like I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about splitting chores recently / managing house work and I want to make a plug for an app I found recently called Sweepy! You can set up the tasks that you want to do together and complete them as a household - tasks can have different amounts of “effort points” and different recurrences, and household members sign up to do different amounts of work (app will tell you if it’s not enough to complete all the tasks on your list).

Anyone know of big law firms in Dallas where you can be M&A, make market/bonus by billing in the 1900-2000 hour range every year and not get fired. To early to decide if I want to shoot for partner or go in house. At this point, just don’t want to bill 2000-2400 hours a year to get a garbage bonus (5%). Double points if the culture isn’t god-awful. Does such a place exist?

I just found out I am being paid less than both of the people I manage ($6k and $10k less). The issue though is they both have a different job than me - they are project managers and I am in more of an overarching strategy role. But I do manage and represent my entire dept. I haven’t been at my company for a full year yet so negotiating my salary is hard (especially because we are very large and matrixed). How would you approach this? Is this normal? I’m just feeling very frustrated.
