Question for current consultants- What cards do you use for travel/ expenses? I’m starting in a few months (based in Dubai) and curious what people use. I have Chase Sapphire Reserve and an Emirates NBD debit (no credit card with then as of yet). Not sure if I should use a local credit card/ sign up with Emirates, or use my Chase. What do you use/ recommend/ find to be the best solution? Thanks! 🙌🙏

A bit torn trying to decide whether spouse& I should have a big celebration for my birthday+new job. Background: I was on a student visa so couldn’t switch jobs easily. I used to see my friends get new jobs+huge jumps in pay, and felt very undervalued/overworked at current firm. Then I got married, got my green card, after which I applied & got a new job doubling my comp. Would really like to go to Masa ($650 per head) but we’re very dedicated to FIRE. How do you decide when to treat yourself?
