I have the Amex Bonvoy card ($95 annual fee) and am thinking of canceling it. Not really sure if it's worth keeping it considering how little the Marriott points are worth.
One downside I see is that I have had this card since '97 (my first card) and I read that credit score considers average age of cards so am concerned that might take a hit. Thoughts on canceling?
Secondly, what are the best cashback cards nowadays if I don't want to pay an annual fee?

Can any NDV women share any advice or tips for thriving in the agency world? Particularly with having hard conversations with superiors about accommodations you need to perform really well? I have ADHD/autism, and the more senior I get, the more I struggle with certain things. There are simple tools a company could provide me to make me significantly less disabled, but I often find myself belittled/ dismissed when I try to have those conversations. Is there a better way to have these talks?

Trying to figure out the right way to go about initiating a raise. I started in January of ‘22 and believe I took a lower salary because I was desperate to get into the apparel industry. I wfh (in CO) for a NYC company and know everyone working in office HAS to be getting paid more because it’s a low living wage for NYC. However, Colorado is very expensive too. I love the position and the company. How does one initiate asking for a raise without regular performance reviews?

Need some POVs - just had my physical and for the first time in my life I’m over 200pounds. I’m 5’10 and am an avid cycler and lifter. I personally feel amazing and fit into the same pants/clothes I did two years ago. I don’t eat dairy and have meat twice a week. BMI puts me in obese but I don’t think I am. Does muscle really weigh more than fat? Am I unhealthy?

Should I pay additional towards mortgage principal to eliminate pmi? Have about $57k left to hit 20% and eliminate PMI, which is about $400/month with 60 months left of payment.

Is there anywhere else my money would be better? Some other investment?
