My mom has flown from Taiwan to the US once in her life: for my graduation. I’m now pregnant and would like to upgrade my moms flight when she comes to the US for my baby’s birth. What are some ways I can upgrade her flight for a steal? I’m United silver status so would prefer United, but open to other airlines. Currently not enough points so what’s the best way? Is it to purchase points (United? Chase?)? I’m clueless at this and would appreciate any help, thanks!

Lost sense of maximizing points/mileage value for int’l flights. Why is Detla redeeming so much more for some routes than Chase UR and even other partner airlines? E.g. non-stop economy btw Detroit-Seoul // Delta redeeming 160k on its own route while Chase UR 123k & Korean Air 80k for same route (code share)... I get it all depends on timing but still weird directly using Delta Skymiles on its own Delta route is more expensive than going through other methods....

Wanted to get opinion from community. Should I continue as EY FAAS manager M2 (120k) or take job as an assistant controller with biotech for 170k plus bonus and stock? Assistant Controller job would require me to be in office few days a week (about hour and half commute one way) whereas faas is remote for foreseeable future. I also don't know way to get promoted to FAAS senior manager ( m3-> senior manager?). I also don't know FAAS SM salary.

I have enjoyed my time in consulting and feel fortunate to have made good money during my time here. I no longer have a desire for wealth accumulation as I feel like it makes me do things I am not interested in at all - leading to unhappiness. As I look to exit, what are some blue collar jobs out there where you can go to work, come home and truly leave it at work? I don’t need to make a ton of money, as long as I have benefits for my family I will be good.
