You can use transfer partners to get max value on airfare or hotels but unless you are planning a big international trip, it’s probably not worth the hassle as domestic transfer partner options are limited. Personally, I just book flights using the AMEX portal to get 1 cent per point and I’m happy with that.

Need some wisdom on my potential error:
I recently stopped contributing to 401k to put that money into paying down massive MBA debt instead.
I know there are tax savings and money will grow at compound rate, but paying off debt that will severely limit my short term options is also important no? Also, I have a regular brokerage acct w/ Betterment that I'm treating like a 401k (won't touch it, will add to it eventually), but unlike 401k it provides liquidity if i need it.
Thoughts?
