Please talk me out of ordering the new ford bronco for 50k. Background: 26 y/o 2020 grad. After taxes, 401K, and HSA I take home ~6100/month. My current car is 13 years old and on its last leg(s). Current debt is 850/month for income based student loan repayments. I have 6 month emergency fund in savings and 20% of net income goes to brokerage account. Growing up lower middle class my only “I’ve made it” purchase is a bad A double S vehicle I actually want. I also get double steak at chipotle.
🐟s: I'm trying to decide which credit card to axe if I get approved for the CSR. Are there any real benefits of the American Airlines Advantage Citi Platinum Card? At $95/year,time to get rid of it?
Currently going through egg freezing at 36 and having a ton of regrets over not doing this earlier. I wish I had people in my life who were more honest and practical vs. Optimistic about having ‘plenty of time’ left and encouraged me to do this 4+ years ago. I’ve always known I’ve wanted kids I just haven’t ￼￼met anyone yet. Here’s to hoping I only have to do 1 round because this shit is so expensive, even with my company’s benefits 🥺

How are folks thinking about permanent life insurance? 45, making let’s say for example (not my exact numbers): $1M per year, not yet vested in pension. Was thinking need to replace the post tax take home, about $550k NPV’ed at 5% to age 55, so that’s like $3.2M. Maybe pension is worth $2.5M so I think that means I should have $5.7 total you want death to have no financial impact. Also was going to do $1M of that in perm w/ LTC rider. Sound right?

Received a verbal offer from a recruiter congratulating me on clearing the final round. However did not receive a written offer or what the TC package would look like. They have started the right to work checks and the investments / pension plan declaration. Is this normal? Should I send across any documents or wait for the written offer to come through (not even sure if the terms offered would be favourable!!)? Anyone faced a similar situation / have any advice on how to proceed? Thanks!
