Divorce question: As part of divorce settlement, my ex owes me $50k in credit card debt. Their lawyer offered $0.50 on the dollar to settle by lump sum today. The debt owed to me is currently accruing 18% interest. Would you take it? Why or why not?
If you have a negative balance on your credit card (overpay every month) and use it until you go back to zero, do you still earn points/ cash rewards on your usage. Context: I am trying to see if I can essentially use my credit card as a debit card but still earn points at the same time.
Based out of Boston, considering moving to Jetblue (currently on United). I feel Jetblue has better connectivity from Boston. Any advise on whether this is a good move?
Got a message saying I could change my United flight with no change fee because of an itinerary change. I checked and there are fully refundable rates I could change to (current rate is not fully refundable). Couldn't I change it to a fully refundable rate then... Get a full refund? What's the catch? Is it that normally you would pay $200 change fee to go to a fully refundable fare? In that case it still seems better than losing your entire fare in the case you really can't make a flight.
Fucked up and forgot to cancel my Westin hotel booking when I was told to be remote this week. Got charged for one night. Can anything be done?
Hmm... keep my whole Sunday and fly Spirit Monday morning? Or give up and fly American Sunday night?
For those that fly Southwest, do you ever book business select or just buy cheapest fare?
Flying in and out of a city just for an hour client meeting, bill the full day for travel time.
If two Delta Diamonds are on the upgrade list and have purchased the same fare class at the same price, what would be the next tie-breaker? (Assume no certificates are being used)
Anyone else feel odd when separated from their spouse post-pandemic? I have always been wildly independent - solo travel, full life, separate friends - but after being in the same space nonstop during the pandemic, I find it so hard to leave him for work or personal travel. I even miss him after nights out with friends! What is wrong with me? Anyone else?
This is by far the worst hotel ever. How many points you ask? They don't even have points! Air conditioning, no? Noise, yes? Can I call reception? No, would need a phone for that (if you ask me what I
Thoughts on Delta Partners? (The TMT firm)
I asked the waitress at my hotel bar what time her shift was ending so we could hang out, and she shut me down. I think she did so because I was wearing my MAGA hat. How many points should I demand?
Checked in at Ritz at 10.45 pm, room had some loud background noise or echo. Called front desk to report and they sent an engineer. Engineer came and said this noise is too loud let me tell (cont)
I’m 25. Not a saver. Never have been. I’m not sure why, but I dislike the idea of locking money away in a 401K. Is saving really that important? Are there non 401K options?
I’m an attractive 42 year old happily married mother of 4. I’m not drop dead gorgeous but a 8/10. Dads of my kids friends text me to invite my kids to activities and additional sport practices. I’m pretty naive and assume they’re doing it because they like my kids. I don’t want to send the wrong message by accepting. Are they interacting with me because of my kids or because I’m attractive? If I bring my kids to the functions am I sending a message that I’m interested in something else?
Has anyone ever reported repeated micro-aggressions from a partner that were taking a toll on your mental health to HR or otherwise? If so, what approach did you take? Would doing it during an exit interview be a good idea? Or is it perhaps better to just leave the firm without saying anything to avoid burning bridges?
Sometimes it hurts to think about how well I know some airports. What terminals/airports were you frequenting before covid?
Heading home from a fun agility lesson 😊😊
Plan on moving to Dallas Texas next year. Currently with Deloitte MTS team and will be a senior at that time. Im wondering how the culture of the office is there? Also, how is the culture of the other firms. Im not opposed to moving firms. Just finished working three 80 hour weeks, so that would be a big plus to find a team where that is not expected on a regular basis!

How do I bill for menial tasks? I am constantly under counting my hours because my tasks are clerical/finding this or that/ excel sheet updating. I take hours since I’m new but I bill very low since my tasks don’t seem to match what the client requires. Any insight ? What should I write ?
I just barely started at my firm and got staffed on a project which requires travel. My firm only allows me to expense hotels on a personal card, everything else goes on the corporate Amex. I’ve had a venture one card for 2 years now but am thinking about getting the chase sapphire reserve. Kind of lost here - any advice?
SPG fish... 166k points at St. Regis for deluxe room vs 75k points at Le Meridien? Going to Rome for a week and those two are my options... is St Regis worth blowing all my SPG points?
