Booked my hotel directly on Ebates every week for a three week travel to Denver. Pocketed $130.5. Got good rooms in Marriott. With devaluing points, this seems better IMO

I've interviewed three possible additions to the team as new FAs. I liked the sliding pay scale we had at Edward Jones. Anyone willing to send me a copy of the current EDJ PDF showing the current scale they use, i.e., pay starts high & commission low the scale moves pover 5-6 years to where the pay goes to zero and the commissions (fees) go to max?

I’m confused by backdoor Roth pro rata rule. I’d appreciate any explanation or a link. 2 issues: 1. I switched jobs in March and converted my old 401k of $120k to a rollover-IRA and invested. Am I going to get taxed pro rata rule and get taxes if I backdoor $6k from my rollover IRA to Roth after 7/15 though it’s a new tax year? 2. My wife did a 401k rollover 4 years ago and invested IRA since. Does she get taxed if backdoor? 3. What if I transfer taxed $ from bank -> IRA -> Roth w/o investing?

After an interview, how long does guidehouse take to respond? I referred someone who had interviews, and then silence for past two weeks. They asked me if that is a de facto “no” or just slow. Idk

Doing a New York trip on Bonvoy points. Best hotel near Central Park? I’m a Plat, so something with a nice lounge would be cool. Looking at JW Essex House, Ritz, St Regis, but open to others.
