re: Regarding my finances - Dead Mike
At 62k, assuming reasonable cost of health insurance (~100/mo), and a 401k election of 3%, take home would be around $3300. 401k contributions would total about $1850 before match. Might vary somewhat depending on what state you're in....

re: Time to Change My 401K Investment Direction? - Dead Mike
If you're going to change your investment elections, do so based on the long-term picture and not fear of the short-term. What kind of portfolio balance would you be comfortable with for the next 5-10 years (or whatever timescale), not over the next few months. If a larger bond allocation will mak...

re: international currency exchange via ATM - Dead Mike
I'd guarantee that 1.17 is the proper sell-to rate, that's the current rate at Wells Fargo. Bank of America is 1.172. I'm going to guess that Regions handles their foreign exchange through one of those banks. Buy-from rate of 1.02 sounds right as well, and that's what was initially quoted instead...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - Dead Mike
I wound up going with the SW Plus and Barclaycard Wyndham (30k points with first purchase and 15k after 1k spend in first 3 mos). $69 fee for each, but I think that combo will give me the best shot at availability when I'm ready to book. Wyndham points are a flat 15k per night, so I'll have to sprin...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - Dead Mike
Wow, awesome replies. Definitely going to look into the Citi AA Platinum; not sure if the Delta Platinum fits my infrequent travel, but I'm also considering it. SW Plus looks like a definite better option than Premier, as I don't have any impending foreign currency transactions. Leaning toward SW Pl...
