Just booked a nice hotel (with points) for my mom on her birthday in the city she's lived close to for 25ish years and never stayed overnight in. Almost makes these nights away from home worth it 🤗

Nice

I'm not understanding. What city? Why is it desirable to stay overnight there? Congrats taking care of mom though.

Desirable to stay overnight because it's something she never has done in general although she has lived so close to it for a while. And it's a nice city and in the summer so there's that.

OP, what city...

For some reason it gave me the name physician but I am not a physician. I am looking to get into one of dental insurance companies as a network analyst/provider network growth and retention.

On a Swiggy food order of Rs. 500, I can either:

- Pay Rs. 500 directly via my credit card, or
- Choose CRED Pay, pay Rs. 450 via the same credit card, and CRED pays Rs. 50 on my behalf.

The funny part is that neither Swiggy nor CRED is profitable. I feel like I’m the one burning VC money here.

I know it’s a very first-world-problem but… I have a lot of Aeroplan points and many eUpgrade credits expiring at the end of this year that I’d like to use but I don’t know which routes are the best options to use this year given closures. I want to make it a long flight that makes the most out of flying business. Australia and Japan (my first options) are closed. Any other ideas? I’m thinking Hawaii
