Does anyone know anything about Dave Ramsey? It feels like a cult. My friends swear by him but I can’t figure out his logic. Like people that follow him insist you pay off a car loan at 1% interest before you invest anything.. or are completely anti credit card even if you use it for the points… what am I missing? It feels like the plan may be for lower income people who don’t manage money well but that may be completely ignorant of me?

AmEx is a 1% redemption rate, costs about $5K for a one way ticket. What’s the best way to search for low cost flights?

Not sure if this has been shared on here, but looks like Bonvoy is updating point redemptions to align with cash value of rooms vs seasonal peaks / hotel categories. So for example a Category 8 hotel in peak season is 100k points/night, regardless of nightly rate (let’s say it’s $2,000/night). I’m speculating you’ll see that jump to something like a 1:100 exchange so that the same hotel room in 2022 will be 200k points / night.
