I’ve seen this concern in every mom’s group I’m a part of. It’s wild to me that with all the discussion of ‘getting back to normal’ we haven’t had a single national conversation about the burden that parents are being asked to take on. It is simply not manageable. My mom moved in with me. I don’t know what I’d do otherwise.

When buying United tickets through the Chase portal, would I be able to add my united rewards number so the flight shows up on my app? Or is that not possible since chase books through Expedia?? Would it be better to transfer the points to United and book through United? I hate it when I make a reservation and I have a third party confirmation instead of the hotel/flights confirmation. Same Q but for booking a Hilton hotel.

I had to fly United because there just wasn't an American flight at the time I needed.. and it's safe to say I think I would've enjoyed the 170 hour hike more.
