Opening a new card or using an existing?

Yea, but I just don’t know if I will have enough time to open a new card. If I do any recs?

Chase Sapphire Reserve

Card issuers might expedite the card or send you a virtual card number to use online if you ask after getting approved.

Best move is to open a Marriott card ASAP and ask Chase/AMEX to expedite

I have the platinum?

Depending when the event is, you might be able to put down 1 card now for the deposit and pay with a different card on the day of the event?

Marriot is sometimes on cash back portals fyi

How do you balance retirement savings with shorter term goals? I max Roth IRA and put in 10% to 401k on top of 7.5% employer contribution. But I also want to save for events in 3-10 years like bschool living expenses (tuition will be covered by sponsorship), wedding, down payment, and parents’ retirement. I’m also paying 1k monthly to student loans to get rid of them by EOY 2021. I understand I’ll lose out on tax/compounding benefits, but I’m assuming my future earnings...

Looking for some advice/suggestions here. 24 years old, TC is now 110k. I have 40k cash savings. $6,500 in my 401k and $6,400 in Roth IRA. Just was promoted and wondering if that’s too much cash to hold onto AND if contributing to a Roth makes sense. I contribute 7% with 100% match and 10% profit sharing at the end of the year to the 401k. Contributing $550 a month to the Roth. Would appreciate any ideas as I know it’s a good spot but just wanted to see if it’s the smartest approach.

This is a dumb problem - but need advice. I basically went from 78k/yr to 138k/yr in alittle over a year. Combined with my partner's income we've gone from contributing small abouts to a Roth IRA to not being eligible for contribute. Our combined income is 261k.

We're almost debt free except the house note (1257/month) , maxing out out 401k, but we planned on doing a Roth IRA and cant now.

So what are the next steps sense we complete blew over the Roth IRA step.
