Check out daily and check in to different hotels within the same brand in the same city to earn rewards on number of stays

Stays is different than nights- you can earn on either. It's the equivalent of trips vs. miles for airlines.

Complained to the hotel I was staying at 4 times in one night for different reasons, and got 10,000 points the next day, for my troubles.

I once had an SPG hotel award 100k points over some months due to renovation disasters: roaches, flooding, fumes, stolen shoes, etc. Unsurprisingly it's no longer an SPG property.

What is right mortgage rate strategy for first time homebuyer - 2.6% with 1.5k lender credit or 2.5 with 1.8k points fee fee. I am leaning towards 2.5 with assumption that I will be able to refinance in future with 2.4 when rates go down further. What would be your choice

Experienced investors, buying my first rental property for 168k. For primary property I know it make sense to get the lowest rate by putting down as much as possible. But for this one I'm getting 25% down at 2.875% and 20% down at 3.625% no points. Saving 8400 in upfront costs with 20% down. What do I do? Also going to fix it up estimated costs 15k.
