Thinking of switching from delta to American, am I crazy? I fly from LGA as my home airport. But like the American network and find flights are consistently cheaper when I’m searching for personal travel. I normally get silver/gold status depending on the year. Is my American experience going to be good?

I’m at 760 nights & 9 years as platinum at Marriott…but I was at 750 nights & 9 years last year (pretty sure? Maybe going crazy). Do you have to hit 10 years as plat within a 10yr time span? Or 10 years as plat at any point in your life?

Worth buying a home right now? I’m In the MW & breakeven on a townhome vs renting apt is ~3 yrs. Mortgage (+taxes) vs rent ~=.

Or i can buy now and take the risk of selling lower in 5 yr

She basically called me blind for not seeing that the Covid crisis was nowhere near finished and then accused me of not having enough work to do.
