I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card. My meal expenses are per diem so I'm thinking about the AmEx Gold card as it has 4x points on dining. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on personal cards for consultants and how to go about my corporate card as well! TIA

Flying from Palm Springs to Chicago on AA in Nov. Booked our trip in July and just got informed that the flight has been changed by 7 hours (from 3:30PM departure to 8:30AM). AA is offering either a refund or a flight change but we’re not interested in either since there’s no other direct flight on AA and other airline rates have since shot up. Are we entitled to any compensation? Points/Certificate? Tried arguing with the rep over the phone but he won’t budge.
I have 10 days (inclusive of travel days) to do something at the end of October. For once I am stumped on where to go. Any ideas? Prefer international, late 20s/early 30s couple, not partiers, quite open minded. Really our only constraint is neither of us drive much so not keen on a trip that is best done with a rental car/lots of driving.

Also concerned about lifetime. I'm hoping they stick with Marriott's lifetime requirement and carry over SPG nights

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.

Has anyone been unjustly rejected by their children due to encouragement by other parent/grandparents/other? It happens usually during separation and divorce but could happen within a marriage. In many extreme cases, the child is prevented from a relationship with a parent due to a being blocked physically and emotionally. I'm currently in a toxic marriage where spouse and MIL badmouth me (among other things) to my 5 yo son to the point where he rejects, badmouths, and even bullies me.
