This is a great change for those of us who have exited consulting and no longer fly for business. We can now earn elite status entirely on credit card spend.

The fact they are extending status and changing up the rules is exactly why I didn’t freak out about trying to cram in a bunch of travel through the end of this year

What’s the general consensus (if it exists) about buying points on a mortgage loan? If it helps, I’m getting quoted at 2.875 rate but can buy a little over a point for 9k to get the rate down to 2.625% (loan is a little over 700k). How do I best think about this? I’m expecting this to be a long term home (20+ years ideally unless something goes awry)

During the difficult time, be mindful while going out for protest. Being an immigrant, it’s a high risk for your visa renewal. There is ongoing police activity and probability of getting your name in police record, which will impact your visa renewal. Be careful and stay safe and don’t do anything which is unlawful in a foreign country (not that you do unlawful in your home country).
