Bad idea for airline miles for sure. I have a friend who is banned from ever redeeming or earning miles on United because ofnit

Large bookings for people who do not have the same last name is a first guess

Id just use them - what are you trying to sell?

Not that interested in luxury travel so points don't have as much value to me as someone who's more interested in booking international F / J tickets

I sold systemwide upgrades for AA on ebay. Knowing what I know now about actions AA has taken against people who sell miles, upgrades, etc., I probably wouldn't do it again.

I think if you use a reputable points broker, your risk is generally just getting in trouble with the airline. I don't think there's much risk that the broker won't pay you (unless you get caught by the airline before the buyer takes the flight).

Hello Fishes,

I am new to the investing world. I have invested some 80k in Nifty fifty index funds. I wanted to increase my investment in other MFs and stocks.

Can you advise how to start it considering short term and long term financial goals.

Short term goals - like for 2-3 years

Long term goals - like for 5-6+ years or more depending upon the performance

I have seen multiple you tube videos but seems to get confused on how to start and which funds to pick.

Thank you!

Making a lot of money relative to the average but feeling poor? Median after-tax income was ~$55,000 in 1981 and was ~$73,000 in 2020. Using a Bank of Canada inflation calculator $55,000 in 1981 is equivalent to ~$165,000 today, which would put someone in the top 10% of earners today. But in 1981 the median family had that extra money. Who can I blame?
