Guessing OP used the wrong words. I think flights are booked centrally at Accenture and not charged to a CC

I’m already platinum at hotels, so I’m not worried about that

SPG for hotel and CS for everything else

Why can't you bill flights?

@C1 why do you use SPG for hotel when seems like CS gives you the same thing? Just trying to understand. As I’m reading seems like CS does everything SPG does and more Accenture doesn’t allow us to bill flights on the card. Must use the corporate travel system

Amex

Well I’m convinced. I signed up for CHASE. So I think I will use it for everything but hotel and continue to use Amex for SPG/Marriott hotels only

We are closer to the end of this initial selling than the beginning. All this technical selling on a 15 minute chart simply brings us back to a 4 Hour Halfway Back long of May 20 to Highs. And, we find support right in the middle of this HWB long. I think we can go a little lower to break the long in a dip below the 61.8% red line. Alternatively, we can hold here and rally. Either way, tomorrow or next week, we are due to rally 300 Nasdaq points. Take profits and be smart.

New England Friends: we are a couple in early 30s (No kids yet and a small dog) planning to move to New England from Chicago. Our options are Hartford, CT and Boston, MA. Below are few considerations - 1. SO does not need to travel and will commute to work and I might need to travel when COVID is over. 2. Will prefer a dog friendly neighbourhood. 3. Both are from Midwest so winter does not bother us. 4. Planning to sell our condo in Chi and buy a SFH in the location. Any recommendations?
