Right now, I have the Southwest Rapid Rewards card because a) when I fly the family, Southwest works best for us (but travel for work is AA). I have 500K+ SW points. Also Hilton Diamond with about 300K points (had more but just redeemed a bunch for a family trip).

I hear about the Chase Sapphire Preferred, the AA Citi card that has a big annual fee but includes a lounge membership.

My goals are being met (free or cheap travel for family trips), but I wonder if I'm leaving money on the table and could be getting more out of my points earnings.

Any suggestions on what I should do differently or change with my strategy?

CSR points transfer to SW and are 3x for dining and travel, which is more than SW card

I'd say try to fly the same airline as much as possible. Instead of having a business airline and a personal airline just have a primary and a backup. Just size up what the best deal is overall and then go with the credit card that supports.

Do you hit companion pass because of your CC and wouldn't without it? If so, keep it! Companion pass is arguably the best travel benefit on the market

Unrelated: what is Forsythe

Btw, Forsythe is a Technology Advisory Consultancy. Also reseller of IT but that's another part of the organization.

I sometimes hit CP but we don't usually use it enough to reap the value of it.

Also with CSP, I'll have to look into that more.

I’m beyond irritated by one of my coworkers. Just so disorganized, doesn’t show up to meetings, doesn’t reply to emails, constantly have to chase him, miss deadlines because of him.

I’ve tried talking to him, I’ve tried escalating, putting reminders on his calendar. Nothing works. What are my options? Suck it up or leave? This is unnecessary stress for me
