Flexible currency always more valuable, and will get you much better redemption rates on international travel in the long run

I liked the capital one venture card. You get a 450 or 350 (can’t remember exact #) when you spend a certain amount within 3 months. Wasn’t very hard for us to do it from what I recall and we are conservative with our money. Can use points for any travel booked and you don’t have to use capital ones booking system. Just flag the transaction and it’ll reimburse you. I don’t think the points earn ratio was crazy high but the annual fee was pretty low and the ease of use was great. So was the flexibility of being able to book any airline, hotel, or rental car company. Overall, we really were pleased with it.

I need some help navigating a conversation with my boss. I have been with our brand for 7 years (been with the same boss) but just came up on my 1 year anniversary with our corporate office last week. I had my review and received 4 out of 5 points. I received zero salary increase because I got a $2,000 bump earlier this year after they terminated an employee and I took on some additional tasks. Is it wrong of me to still think I should have received an additional bump?

Looking for advice: Ended a toxic long term relationship 3 months ago.

But I’ve started getting nightmares about my ex coming back and what I’d do if that happens. Any advice on how to handle this?
