for awhile bilt was offering people 5x points in their first month. Not sure if still are (wasn’t publicly disclosed when applying to read up on forums) but it’s a great no fee card especially if you pay rent (and I think they’re adding mortgages soon)

Bunch of transfer partners like Chase and Amex have

Depends on your spend categories, if you travel a lot, I recommend Venture X. Happy to refer and answer any questions as well - feel free to DM.

Check amex gold offers, it’s a solid card

Have you considered the Amex Plat? Bonuses range from 80-150K. Lmk if you want a referral.

I have Amex Gold referral for 75k

New idea: investing platform that lets you make a note when you buy stocks/ index funds. And then tracks the growth of those stocks separately. (I.e. I have like 200 shares of something. But I bought 10 of those shares when I switched firms. And 10 of those shares with my 2022 bonus. I want to be able to note the occasion that I bought shares and then easily track the growth of those individual shares. As a scrapbook of my experiences. Rather than buying jewelry for sentimentality.

Looking for some advice/suggestions here. 24 years old, TC is now 110k. I have 40k cash savings. $6,500 in my 401k and $6,400 in Roth IRA. Just was promoted and wondering if that’s too much cash to hold onto AND if contributing to a Roth makes sense. I contribute 7% with 100% match and 10% profit sharing at the end of the year to the 401k. Contributing $550 a month to the Roth. Would appreciate any ideas as I know it’s a good spot but just wanted to see if it’s the smartest approach.

Validating an idea I had: Childcare loans for working parents. The loans are given to the parents to pay for daycare/nanny/other types of childcare. As the kids grow older, the expenses for childcare drop dramatically. At that point the parents can pay off the loan with a small amount of interest.
Affordable childcare is a pain, and the idea is to make it affordable by deferring payments over a longer horizon.

Kind of a weird question, but if you have status at hotels is there any way you could finagle either free or discounted multi-day parking for hotels near an airport? Don't want to have to rely on ride sharing from my home if there is a stronger likelihood of rides near a hotel airport parking space. I am speculating that it still turns out cheaper than hotel parking. This is not for work so I wouldn't be able to expense it.
