American employees would be holding the same card but with “AA credit card promotion - today only. See your flight attendant”

American Airlines is annoying about that, yes.

It is a good reminder to customers that their dollars support many airline jobs beyond pilots and flight attendants.

I said I’ve been at Kpmg for a year and have 1 year of internship experience in total. Was the 2 years minimum really a deal breaker? I’ve been on cyber projects at Kpmg

To con't the conversation on engagement rings💍 - what do they symbolize to you? My BF and I got into a discussion about this last night. He views them as an investment and an "asset" on the books for his future family. He also has grandparents who had to finance their trip to America by selling their jewels. I see the ring as more of a gift to the future bride that is an expense that can be sold for money if needed, but isn't an investment. I'm fine w/ lab grown, he is not. Thoughts?
