Is Amex really worth it? My wife has a platinum card, and I have a Gold card - mostly because we used to travel a lot for work, but this has changed since COVID. Amex is increasing platinum fees to $675 a year, which would normally be a lot, but even more so when we're not using airline lounges, Uber kickbacks, travel perks, etc. nearly as much as we used to.

Sometimes travel is not easy like it should be.

I had a $1200 credit (b class flight from Paris to NY) from
American Airlines that I was told was good for any trip. After 30+ hours between call backs and different desks, they tell me because the trip originated in euros I can only apply it in the US.

Fine, but then after another hour on hold, I hear that it can only be redeemed in person at a ticket counter in Paris. I live in NY. Was never told of these stipulations before.

Never again AA

My 19 month old has been transitioning to 1 nap for the last two weeks and she still will only sleep for an hour and fifteen minutes. Sometimes she will sleep two hours. She needs a longer nap because she wakes up crying and then requires an early bedtime. We’ve tried keeping her in the bed longer and moving the nap earlier because she’s overtired. How long did this transition take? It’s so hard. She is now waking up at 5 am too because she is overtired.
