AA doesn't status match they sell you a status challenge for gold or platinum only

I’m thinking you want the miles and not the status... I would get the AA miles. I’m sure those will come in handy at B school.

Stick with a Delta and aim to hit Platinum again before you leave. That way you’ll have Platinum stays nearly through end of school. Best benefit is the free cancellation of award tickets.

But wouldn’t the flights out of the AA hub be cheaper on Delta than AA? I’m out of a delta hub and all flights on delta are expensive but flights on any other airline are extremely cheap. Yes you’d have a stop, but cost is different

Im a recent grad and I finally got a offer today as a marketing coordinator. I’m not super excited about this position because it requires me to travel everyday to physicians office’s and market with them directly for a health agency. I get compensated for gas & they offered me 22 an hour. However I preferred a job in social media and digital marketing so this is slightly out of my realm of experience. I’d like to hear back from other interviewers but not how long is too long to wait to accept?

Why do you think so many in their 20s and early 30s on here are so conservative with their money (e.g., putting money in HYSA/CDs, building 6-12 month cash emergency funds, renting instead of buying a home)? It reminds me a little of the depression era mindset my grandparents had. Seems like a sure fire way of decreasing long term returns. On the bright side, maybe it will have the long term effect of decreasing wealth inequality.
