I’ve found that 70+% of my spend is on food in some capacity, so I get the 4x there. I also make sure to check in on offers every few weeks and add them even if I’m not sure I’ll use. There are often Bonvoy reimbursements. Offers alone have paid for my CC fee, and then grubhub / Uber is gravy on top of that

Groceries are 4x points. And book flights directly at the airline site for 3x. There's also 10 dollar monthly grubhub credit besides uber eats.

Can someone walk me through how to do a backdoor Roth. I have a traditional IRA with Vanguard and with the max contributed for this year. But I don’t have a Roth account. Can I still roll the $$ over? Is there any point to rolling it over now while I’m above the Roth contribution limit? Or should I wait until I leave this job for a lower paying gig sometime in the next few years? Also, I I am maxing out my 401k and cannot take a dedication on the contributions to my traditional IRA.

United lost my son's car seat on a 3 hr flight. It was registered as a checked luggage with the proper csrseat tag and everything.

Anyway to get points for the inconvenience, I'm Premier platinum if it matters. They did give me a free loaner carseat until mine arrives but it's kinda crappy tbh.
