Hi! Debating whether to travel home over holidays this year. My visa expires this month and have changed employers since getting it stamped. Thoughts based on news releases, and experiences welcome
Arriving in Boston Logan Airport from overseas. How far is Delta to re-check bags in after clearing customs/immigration?
Has anyone successfully gotten MQD + MQS/MQMs retroactively applied to your Delta account when booking flights for your SO to join you on a trip? Doing Delta status challenge & curious if this works.
Will likely end the year with 190k pqm and $25k spend on United... Is there even a tiny chance of making global services?
When you track your travel expenses, do you include booked (and paid) travel for NEXT year as a current year expense or a next-year expense? I have separate excel workbooks for 2021 and 2022 but am curious what the norm is!
Mortgage rates: are these good? Trying to find the best with the lowest points. This home will be 5-7 year plan. Chase offered: 2.75% 1.57 points for 30 year or 2.8% .875 points for 30 year or 3.125%, no points for 30 year. Are these good? Gonna ask sofi next.
So I plan to prepare treats this Halloween for the kids in my neighborhood. What kind of treats do I get to minimize dental damage? Putting in fruits, nuts, or apple chips would feel like I tricked them and ruined the treat, no? Do I just put in regular candy but add in a small travel size Crest toothpaste (like they do at the dentist) and pray that their parents taught them to brush regularly? My conscience is torn. Please help.
Can anyone provide feedback on how to get a cheap / great prices for a rental car this weekend?
My company gives me a card for all travel related expenses. Does this mean I can’t claim the points?

I’m generally not a beggar but figured it was worth a shot: Does anyone have two United Club passes that are going to expire soon and you’re willing to share?
Any perspective on m&a with regards to the current situation? Is M&A going to be the most hit? What are people and especially people on Visa doing as backup plans?
Hi 🐠 does anyone have United drink coupons?
Can anyone advise how long you should wait until you chase a tax refund? I had to paper file my state return which I submitted July 15. I still haven’t seen anything come into my bank account.

Graduated in May. Starting this Monday with Deloitte. Positions requires weekly travel to NYC from DC. Told to only use green corp card for lodging and flights. Suggestions on how to maximize points?
This past Saturday, as I drunkenly tried to find an Uber at 2:30 AM, Amex flagged my card for fraud and left me stranded because calling an Uber at night looked like “suspicious activity” for my profile. Not even Amex believes I have a social life anymore.
Just tried out the Apple Fitness +, loving it so far. The Apple Watch integration makes the exercises feel more customized to you. Wish this was out during the earlier days of covid! You don’t need equipment to use it, but if you get a cheap bike or compact treadmill from Amazon, it’s will be way cheaper that peloton. 🍎🎄🍎
