Hi Ladies, How do you approach when your daughter (8) is invited to a sleepover/pool party at a hotel with other girls she’s friends with? I know the family a little from afar as our kids are in the same class/extracurricular activities but I don’t know them well. I’m going to assume the mom will be there but I just don’t know how to approach the convo without coming off weird.

AMEX Platinum: Just saying thanks to all the tips y’all share in here. I was able to get a $500 statement credit (other option was 50K pts). Just call and ask to be transfer to retention services and explain politely that the annual fee isn’t justified due to COVID and lack of work travel! I also cancelled my Clear membership and got that pro rated refund too (or keep it and get 2 months free).
Booked some Marriott stays on points before the change in redemption rates. It’s now fewer points for the same dates. Is it possible to get the difference back? If so how, call or cancel/rebook

Wasn't giving much attention to scaler curriculum due to the first job which cost me missing out offers from Amazon, DailyHunt, Travel triangles and much more. In March 2020, joined Innefu Labs (Startup) and started giving all my time to learning the scaler things in April 2021 got 14LPA CTC from Make My Trip. Refer code: VIKA3F1E

My daughter is turning 17 in October and has been trying to figure out her path after high school. As expected, she’s changed her mind several times and I expect it to change several more. I mentioned to her this morning that the military would be a great option and she showed a lot of interest. We live in a very rural southeastern town and we’ve done our best to ensure she has an open mind, but I think the military would give her the opportunity to travel and experience other cultures.
