Got an offer with Amazon that requires occasional international travel. What’s the travel and stay policies like, can any Amazonians share? Also does Amazon reimburse mobile bills? Heard they are very petty and expect like by line itemization?

Getting ready to do hard pull on credit report for mortgage application. My better half is in 700-719 range (lenders will take lower score between us). What do we think is the better option to increase her score—increase credit line at current credit card, apply for new credit card, or do nothing? Thanks in advance!
On my notice period and bench for the next couple of weeks. With wfh I'm basically doing whatever I want (running, reading, swimming, day trips nearby) during work hours. Can't travel abroad cos UK visa is being issued. Any activities/places I should visit in London that get jam packed during the weekend?
Didn’t make Marriott platinum last year but still a platinum this year...? I didn’t even make gold either because I left consulting. Is this an error?
Flew Delta Premium Select from DTW > PWG on the new Airbus 330 plane. It was the best experience I’ve ever had, worth every penny 👌🏻
Starting my first traveling project tomorrow, what time do you recommend I get to LGA for a 9am flight? Flying delta and don’t have premier status/pre check yet.
Can I ask for miles on delta - they are deplaning us after delaying the flight. They do not have another aircraft lined up... I took this flight so I could get a full night rest for work and now won't
What are the ledger growth expectations (dollars or %) at your firm this year? I’m finishing the first year as a new tax partner (not B4). Started with 1.9million ledger and grew to 2.7million with pipeline worked from past years that turned to wins. The pandemic hasn’t allowed much time or travel to refill the pipeline. Now there’s pressure to add 500k and grow to 3.2million by end of 2nd year. Feels like a big number for a second year tax partner.
Was so excited about fly day that I walked all the way to the bus for that terminals with the rental car keys 🙈
Does anyone know how to stop credit card companies from sending their offers? I get a stack of the same ones every other week when I'm home and its annoying to keep shredding them every time.

Any tips on how to figure out what one *really* want to do for their career? I know consulting isn’t it, but I’m having a hard time finding a role or company or even another type of career (e.g., law or education) that really speaks to me and seems fulfilling or exciting or at least worth the effort to switch into. Any tips for introspection or how to navigate this weirdly defeating feeling are very welcomed :)
Just got a pretty good job offer to exit, but I’ve been on the beach for about two months, and kind of feel like my company has forgotten I exist. Is it okay if I keep two jobs and then quit once they staff me/remember I exist?
How do you travel with your face serums & oils?
Looking for some advice. Currently contributing 10% to 401k and maxing out Roth IRA, and remainder of savings (usually $800-$1200 per month) putting in a HYSA for a down payment on a house. Hoping to buy in 2-3 years once we (partner & I) have a sizable down payment. Should I continue to put all my non-retirement savings in an HYSA for a downpayment or should I also contribute to my brokerage and invest to grow wealth? (24yo, $85k)
How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.

Avoid investing in coins looking at online post by random guys. If they are shilling constantly then most likely they bought it at very cheap price and ready to sell once innocent followers buy in. STAY AWAY from SHILLERS and high circulating supply coins. Do your own research and hold onto those if you believe in the project Not everyone makes money catching green candles.
