About how many Avis points do you need to do anything with them? Have no sense of scale....
Which CC is better for sign-up bonus - Citi Premier 80K points or Chase Aer Lingus/Iberia 100K Avios points?
I churn somewhat regularly and am under 5/24 by 1. I think Citi's points are more valuable but maybe I should knock out another Chase card before I'm at 5/24 again, even though Avios isn't as versatile?
Has anyone taken Kaplan practice test vs. the gmat official practice test? If so how would you say your score/the difficulty compares? I got 100 points lower on the gmat practice test and wonder y
on the thread of credit cards…if anyone is interested in a capital one venture x I’m happy to refer! I think it’s 75k bonus points as long as you’re not a current capital one customer. DM me!
- perks: $300 travel credit, lounges, travel insurance, tsa precheck, anniversary 10k points

Can we have this thread to post what items fellow fishes bought using the Hybrid Productivity Allowance?
I’m sure many fishes like me would be sitting on it for a long time.

I have a requirement to insert a row in database only if it meets following requirements
Ex: there is a column "points", a new record should be inserted only if points in the new record is greater than highest points already inserted in db or else throw that points are less
How i should approach this if i get lot of requests (say 10k) all a time. How can I achieve consistency and handle with less response time
Should I start Kirk Cousins at Chicago or Russell Wilson vs GB (tonight)? Standard points league. Please provide reasoning behind your decisions
Never traveled for consulting before! If we use corporate codes, do we still get points even though price is discounted and not full price?
A woman here: just accepted a fantastic job offer and managed to score 4 of them being unemployed during the search. I want to reward myself for the hard work of owning my career. But I don’t want Hermès, Chanel, VCA or Cartier as it feels like an empty purchase now with all the wfh. I thought of new Balmain blazer, but again WFH. What would you buy for yourself as a reward? Extra points for sustainability. No Tesla, please; I hate the way they treat their employees.
Is there a typical signing bonus in ME for EM / Principal at MBB if switching from a competitor? Any anecdotes or data points (e.g. xx% of base salary) would be super helpful
Best Hawaiian island vacation? Assume no points
Need 75K Hyatt Points. Plz DM
I know everyone here are CSR obsessed but anyone have the Amex Platinum? Just got a sign up offer; how does it compare now that CSR cut from 100,000 points?
I have the Amex Bonvoy card ($95 annual fee) and am thinking of canceling it. Not really sure if it's worth keeping it considering how little the Marriott points are worth.
One downside I see is that I have had this card since '97 (my first card) and I read that credit score considers average age of cards so am concerned that might take a hit. Thoughts on canceling?
Secondly, what are the best cashback cards nowadays if I don't want to pay an annual fee?

Hi ladies, I am nearly at the point where I want to start having kids. However, I have made a career change somewhat recently (about 1.5 years ago) so I am not really experienced in the tech industry. Would having kids be detrimental at this point in my career (is it always detrimental)? Has anyone had experience of having a big career in Tech and being a mum? Any tips or advice?
Note: I do have a very supportive husband but his work is not very flexible necessarily.
Would you prepay your mortgage (2.75%) or invest? Would you refinance 15 year or 30yr? I understand that over a long run, you can invest the difference and increase wealth. But it generally takes 10+ years to break even. What’s your reason NOT to do the 30yr mortgage?

Please let me know if I’m thinking about this right; in theory, the housing market next year is supposed to be better (more supply from builders and more confidence in buying). If it’s not a need at this second, why do people not wait for next year to buy? If rates are projected to go up, prices should come down.
This is a potentially a really dumb question but why is the industry doing badly? Is it clients going to smaller shops? Is it them spending less money on advertising in general (and if so why)?

Junior at an AmLaw 100. My girlfriend is a law student (1L) applying to summer atarge firms all across town, including my own.
I have not introduced her to anyone at my own firm, as I don't think that has great optics for either of us.
But in the event she gets invited in for an interview or more importantly as she begins now to reach out to people at the firm for coffee etc.. what's the most appropriate way to handle this? Particularly if I have worked with the person.

Anyone else had a poor experience at the company? It was a very painful process to come to terms that the dream job might not be so dreamy after all. I went through moral harassment, lack of scope, a dismantled team and unprepared HR people that were not able to help me, nor take any actions towards port leaders. So, if anyone out there is struggling like I was, just know you’re not alone.

Quite a simple and probably stupid question, but if a company buys a machine for R&D, does the cost of the machine goes into the R&D expenses in the fin. Statements, or does it shows as depreciation during the lifespan?
If both, wouldn't this incur on counting the cost twice?
