Tax savvy people, i have questions. my employer reduced everyones salary during the first 6 months of covid, but offered a “bonus” (aka back to normal rate) if you were required to travel during this time. How will the temporary salary cut + travel bonus affect my filing? Idk I’m feeling petty

I'm racking up a backlog of points that I'm not spending, SPG, Marriott, Amex, Chase(SR), AA and Dellta. What's the best way to keep track of them all and manage for best redemption?
When a hotel issues you points as a courtesy, do they pay for it out of their income statement? How does that work?
With Hilton now. Should I switch to SPG or Marriot? Do it before or after the official merger?
Qn about SPG platinum breakfast amenity - is it valid only once during the stay or for each day? I'm told I can use it only once during the stay 🤷🏻♂️
So I realized I love every apspect of consulting but the travel ( assuming pre- Covid ) what forms should I look into?
People have been poo pooing going to Hawaii due to lack of reservations for activities and poor service due to understaffing. I have a Maui trip planned in Sept and I'm thinking about putting it off. Is it that bad? I'm staying at the Ritz.

Getting married next month and we’d like to have a joint checking account to cover shared expenses, however I don’t want to miss out on all the points I can rack up by consistently using my delta platinum card (spending thresholds = point bonuses, etc). Also my credit card bill will likely be a mix of shared and personal expenses, so how do couples go about this? Open to any advice. Thanks!
Changin Delta flight to tonight. No point in even going to the airport if you have not left home yet!

What's a good way to tell a potential case (that's expected to be crazy in hours and has brutal travel) that you're working on MBA apps and need a little time on weekday evenings and weekends?
General musing - it seems like the vast majority of recs in here are for super expensive hotels and resorts (St Regis, etc). I work in consulting and make good money but can’t fathom spending $600+ a night on a hotel. Am I really in the minority or is it just that ppl staying at the Ritz want to show off?

Are any top consulting firms hiring for experienced analysts currently? I know ACN and some others are cyclical for resources 2-3 years out of college, but I’m looking to make a move sooner than fall
Well fuck. I got laid off. Just when you think you’re in the clear, 2020 brings the pain. Guess it’s true that the big title comes with a big target.
If we mandate masks for US citizens who are fully vaccinated why don’t we check Covid status of illegals and prevent them from entering? Heck, they shouldn’t be allowed to enter anyway!!
Just got a big raise (50%+) starting July 1st that is going to move me out of income limits for direct Roth IRA contributions (prior to raise was under the limit) even with maxed pretax 401k and HSA - however I am already halfway through contributions ($3000). What options do I have to address these excess contributions?
Cloud strategy SM TC and culture for Deloitte and PWC? Approached by recruiters for both.
Question for you all: Left D to Company A for a 50% raise in TC and slated to start in <1 week. However, just got an offer at Company B for a 100% raise in TC compared to D, or 30% raise in TC compared to company A. Both firms do similar work but B provides a more solid comp package. Job duties would be relatively similar. Is the % jump worth burning the bridge? Would have chosen Company B if the offer came sooner but the % difference in A to B is at my [personal] 30% threshold. TIA!

How safe is Houston downtown for a female staying alone with a young kid for a few months? Being very close to the office and daycare, and availability of public transport (doesn't drive) are reason for preffering downtown. However, have been reading about the recent crime surge there. If someone is generally back home by 8 PM or earlier, and will probably take Uber locally, is it still risky. Also welcome any good apartment suggestions. Thanks
Does referral (a random one e.g. from someone at MBB whom you don’t personally know), make a difference in applying for roles with MBB?
