Is there a low-cost way to extend Hertz points? Seems like renting a car is the only way.

No advice but sharing what happens when you don't extend. I once lost like $3k worth of points. I basically had rentals for 2 yrs straight for a project with tons of points promotions in between. I switched projects and didn't need rental car and forgot about it for awhile.

One day I randomly check my spam email and noticed my pts expired the day before. I immediately contacted them they said they'd look into it. They came back with sorry nothing we could do and offered me something minuscule like what I would get within 1 rental. When I had like 3+ months worth of rental points.

I don't use them anymore especially since I moved and they are further away.

But that sucked big time. I think I could have extended by renting and just pickup and return the car right there since I didn't need it. But I missed it by a day.

Does buying points extend you?

I mean, they’re literally bankrupt right now, significant uncertainty around what those points will be worth in a year...

I’m trying to learn more about backdoor IRAs - currently HHI is sitting just at the qualification for standard Roth IRA (200k). My husband is getting some money in December from a relative who passed away, ~40k, but since it’s coming from his relative’s 401k, he will pay income taxes.

Will receiving that lump sum push us out of our standard IRA qualification next year, even though our regular income is still at threshold?

Again, this is not my student, but I think this speaks to the power of visibility. Students need to know we are members of society. All I did was wear my own trans pin and “love is love” pin on my lanyard, and my trans flag mask (occasionally).

But for that student it was enough.
