Mortgage rates: are these good? Trying to find the best with the lowest points. This home will be 5-7 year plan. Chase offered: 2.75% 1.57 points for 30 year or 2.8% .875 points for 30 year or 3.125%, no points for 30 year. Are these good? Gonna ask sofi next.
Dow off 700 points also
Partners. Do team members just come and go from your perspective? Feeling very disengaged and demotivated… do leaders actually care to talk people through these low points in their careers or is this something we need to figure out on our own? Want to talk it out but feeling like a burden more than anything.
Really getting smacked with LinkedIn “so proud to announce..” posts this morning. Do you get extra points or something if you parlay your achievements into one post and also post a logo of each brand name?

Currently working on plan C of a honeymoon as we don’t expect to be able to go Europe in June/July as hoped. Plan A and B were variations of Italy (relax) and Spain (mountain biking). Hoping to use bonvoy points. Any US centered suggestions? Maybe refocusing on golf/warmth/spa/food now.
Last night's buy at 3096 goes 1.5 points over the objective that I called last night in Europe. There were two HWB long buying opportunities last night. New Target 3159.25 probably hit in today's NY session. We are trading Micro HWB's right now. Basically, we are goin to hit new highs and create a potential double top situation. Be careful being long at that new objective. If it's a dip into new highs situation, we could sell off violently, like we did yesterday. Bullish Above 3126.
Has anyone had SPG points deposited into their account for stays that happened weeks or months ago (and were deposited correctly at the time of stay). Not complaining, anyone else double dipping?
Anybody’s mom and husband don’t get along? Lol running out of ideas to have them get along. I have a newborn and my mum is here to help with him, and she and my husband don’t get along. Love my husband, he’s great and very helpful with the baby and for me as well in terms of emotional support (postpartum has been harder on me than I thought) but he and mum don’t see eye to eye. Some points of difference- mum is super religious whereas he’s atheist etc etc

Any tricks to converting your Amex points into gift cards or some equivalent to get a better Amazon conversion? $70 for 10k points seems weak when a lot of the retailers do $100 for 10k.
Final night of a 3 night stay at a Staybridge in a nice part of a nice city the other night paid completely with IHG points. Came back at 2am to find cockroaches all over the bathroom. Called front desk and they didnt have bug spray nor an additional room. Woke my friend up at 2:30am and my wife and I ended up crashing on her couch. As we left that night night manager said "I actually have a two bedroom but didn't offer it to you because you were only two people". Manager calls wife (continued
NONE of my SPG points show up on the new Marriott app Bonvoy. What to do??? That’s a years worth of stays!!
Chase reserve - about to complete an year. Don't want to pay next year's annual fee. What are my options - convert to Chase preferred/ freedom etc.? Is there a way to keep the value of the points?
I really like my job. It took 18 years but I'm finally doing something I'm good at, enjoy, and get decent money to do. I do not want exit opps or hotel points.

Advice please, especially if you hire. Going to law school and choosing between UPenn law and Michigan law. Scholarship at Michigan and will graduate with about 90,000 less in debt from Michigan. But Upenn ranked slightly higher and better in the fields I am interested in. Also have a family. So better chance of finding an internship in philly where I don't have to leave my family during the summer. Also thinking about going into politics or back into consulting.
