No Amex MR, no United, no SPG, no Marriott... that website doesn’t do much for me unfortunately

This is great SC2! Any idea about their business plan? Do they take a cut for each transfer or what? Sorry too tired to do the research myself

Yes, points.com takes a cut. The exchange rate is pretty awful. It’d be better to set up a “family/friend” transfer with someone you trust, or book in each others’ name

someone save this attorneys job. I hired an attorney with 5 years experience. I send her assignments and usually the law we're using. She never reads the breifs or memos we've prepared. Does her own research and usually misses the points. When I ask why she says she's intimidated by the memos etc and they're "hard". That drove me up a wall. We don't get paid to do easy things. Just because it's hard you give up? WTF.

Could use some structural layout help for a deliverable: Creating a one-page report that reflects a product offering, its benefits, and its significance (the ‘so what’) - currently only having multiple bullet points for each as the content, but think it’s not suitable aesthetically for a presentation. Any suggestions for how I should best format it for exec management? This isn’t a PPT.
