1. Amex : Analyst L1 2. ZS : Associate Which is better, considering compensation to be almost similar
Help! Last minute trip to Hawaii, want to use points. Have about 250k points thru both Chase and Amex (each). Also have Amex Plat. - Chase is running 1.5x points to transfer to Bonvoy right now. - Amex has basically the same deal as Chase - every 2 pts transfer to Bonvoy for 3 pts (am I doing the math right?) - Amex also has $200 FHR/Hotel Collection annual credit for one of the hotels I'm considering - Could also transfer points to Hyatt, but not as good hotel options where I'm headed CONT...
Can't make a decision between Chase Sapphire Preferred and AMEX Gold. Offer expires today. Help! P.S. Please don't tell me to get CSR instead.
Soon to start at MCK, do you guys use the company corporate card (AMEX green)? I have the AMEX delta platinum and would like to hear pros and cons? Can you still use the corporate card for personal expenses, just not expense it to the company? McKinsey & Company
What card should I Churn next? Currently have CSP, Amex Plat, both Marriott cards, United Quest card and Chase Ink Preferred? Thanks!
Planning on having lots of credit card travel/dining expenses for the next 6 months (airbnbs, groceries, Uber/lyfts etc.) Currently have CSR which I use for everything, and rarely use: Marriott Bonvoy AMEX (might cancel since no more travel/hotels), BOA Cashback 3% online shopping (use for some subscriptions), Apple Card for Apple subscriptions. Does it make sense to get the United Explorer credit card for 70k points (free for 1 year then $95 after)? United silver status trying to get higher
Anyone use Amex Send + Split with venmo or paypal? I pay rent through venmo and this looks like I could use my amex to do that without fees but it seems too good to be true?
Does Amex negotiate?
So I’ve gotten the AmEx Platinum offer for 150K bonus points (Gold for 75K). I have another corporate card so the annual fee is $550. Even without considering the statement credits, centurion lounge, etc… it’s worth it for the bonus alone right? Like 150K points > $550, and I get the perks as free benefit. I’d plan to downgrade in 1 year. Any thoughts?
Anyone else has two Amex plat and why?
I received a welcome offer for Amex platinum of 150K membership rewards points in the mail today, a week or two past signing up for the card for the card with a 100K welcome bonus. Is it possible to contact them and get the offer upgraded retroactively? Does anyone have experience with this?
Amex Platinum vs Chase Sapphire Reserve?
New to this…with Amex Platinum what is the best / most economical use of your points? I see you can cover charges on the card as well.
Best way to use 100k Amex points when leaving the firm in 2 weeks with no immediate travel plans? Let’s assume Schwab option is off the table and that I live in a delta hub.
Do I downgrade/cancel Reserve and go for the $695 Amex Platinum, or keep the Reserve and get the CapitalOne Venture? Looking for the best bonus on a new everyday card. Perks are great, but I travel ~quarterly rather than ~weekly nowadays
If anyone is looking to sign up for the Delta Amex Reserve, please let me know! I would love to make a “referral”
Question about credit age and credit scores. If I call up Amex and tell them to open a new credit card and transfer the credit from another card to this new credit line (and cancel the old credit card but keep the old credit line on my new credit card). Would the average age of open credit decrease as a result of both opening a credit card AND losing the credit card I had opened? Or would the age if the second credit card be transferred over.
Currently I have a Chase Sapphire Preferred. Should I switch to Reserve or go with Amex Platinum.? Got an unsolicited mailer about 150k points intro offer on Amex.
Have a delta Amex, anyone know if I can switch account to a “normal” Amex or will I need to reapply all over again? I want to avoid a credit pull on my report, if possible
What is the best Amex Point transfer? Leaving the firm in a couple of weeks and want to transfer all my Amex points.

Hello everyone. Welcome to the AmEx India bowl. I created this bowl to welcome anyone and everyone who is an AmEx colleague, from any LOB, from any department. I hope you will help in the growth of this bowl so that we have build a community outside our work as well.
Thinking of re-vamping my cc strategy. Currently have the Amex Plat and the Delta Amex Plat (mainly just for the companion pass each year which cancels out the AF) but because of the increase in Amex Plat’s AF I’m thinking of downgrading to Amex Gold, then getting Delta Reserve card for Skyclub access to replace my Delta Plat card. Thoughts on this or is there something I’m not thinking of? Lounge access and Amex’s transfer partners are the two main priorities to me
I heard the United travel bank still works for the Amex airline credit…. Has anyone recently tried it and got the credit?

I have a personal point based Amex card. It is linked to the same Amex account as my corporate Amex. I’m in plans to quit the firm. Does the point transfer from one card to other?
Have the CSR but thinking about switching to Amex Gold + something for flights and hotels. Maybe one of the American Airlines cards? Any other suggestions?
Does Big4 hire ACCA individuals from international countries (they will not need visa sponsorship and would be legally authorized to work in USA).
Forget Glassdoor. The government publicly reports the salaries of H1B visa employees. http://h1bdata.info/index.php?em=&job=&city=&year=All
Republicans just dropped new H1b visa legislation increasing enforcement and changing wage requirements. anyone have details? I just skimmed the headline

In a predicament about getting OCI. Recruiter at Big4 mentioned firm preferred candidates without OCI for clearance positions.How easy is it to get Indian visa ahead of arrival in case of family emergency? TIA!
I am on an L1A, on a visa with 3 years left, and am currently in the US. Does this section mean I can leave (for example to visit family) and come back?
My H1-B visa has expired and I need renewal stamping. Anyone have recent experience of this? I believe Mexico just stopped doing this for TCNs, and that Bahamas only allows those that have NOT changed employer since their first visa - can anyone confirm? It also looks like Canada is emergency only
Would it be okay for me to travel internationally in a couple of months' time? For details: I'm an Indian citizen with a H1B visa, stamping valid till 2022. Thanks!
My I-129 has been approved for L1A extension, any idea of the next steps or when I would hand my passport in to get the visa stamp?

Anyone applied for Chase Ink cards - for businesses and gotten approved. I don’t have a business outside of my current job.
I fly a lot, what’s a good credit card for that?
My uncle took my 92 year old grandmother with dementia to a department store and had “her” open a credit card in her name. He put about $10,000 of charges on the card and hasn’t made any payments. Now debt collectors are going after her (mail is now being sent to my parents). When the credit card was opened she had no photo identification, if you asked her she wouldn’t have been able to tell you where she lived, wouldn’t have been able to give phone number either. Any thoughts on this?
Just got approved for the Chase Ink Preferred today. Any suggestions on whether to keep this card long term? Thinking about closing it after I get the 80k UR bonus.
Did anyone review the new Chase Sapphire Reserve terms? They’re raising the annual fee back to $550 (might call to see if they’ll retention waive some of it), but not extending any of the good stuff like using the $300 for gas, groceries, etc. makes me wonder if it’s worth it any longer?
anyone know if i can increase the wire transfer limit in my chase account? it’s $25k right now and i’m looking to transfer $35k
Ever heard “omg how are you single, you are fit, handsome and successful”. Gets on my nerves every time. I would like to be in a relationship but dating as a gay man is wack. All about sex, and the times I’ve caught feelings for a guy it’s not been “exciting” for him anymore as the “chase” is over. Apparently being available is a turnoff. And the comment “come on, you can get whom ever you want”..........
How hard should you actually work in consulting? Obviously we have utilization requirements so we work long hours but I’m tired of giving 100% of my brain power. Is there any benefit of working harder? IMO there’s an incentive to work slower
I’m starting to wonder if the Biden admin assigned Kamala this “border excursion” to watch her fail. I liked her better before she gave interviews.

Has anyone received equity as contingency comp? I have a potential client with a founders dispute. He doesn’t have cash, and the other founder ripped him off and is now running the company. He wants to sue for equity and wants to pay me with whatever equity he wins. I’ve never done a deal like that. Is that even enforceable? CA law. The startup is actually quite promising.
Just got an email from a recruiter with job positions targeted at mgmt consultants. Know there have been a lot of layoffs lately so thought I'd pass these along (see below for links).

Correct way to record time? I travel for my engagements but it seems if you’re traveling, it counts against your total billable time. I just think that’s weird. Am I doing this right?
Anyone have any book recommendations for real estate investing? There’s a lot of crap out there. Looking for a more serious book for someone who already understands finance and real estate basics.
Biglaw first year deferred from September to late January with a $10k advance. I had to incur $11,000 in credit card debt to live, & right when I started work, had a medical emergency that ended up costing me another $3,500. My paychecks have been smaller due to paying back the advance and prioritizing maxing out my 401k and HSA (my credit card debt was interest free). It was depressing working these hours to mostly just pay needs and my debt. Today I paid it all off! Woooooo! I feel so free.
Rolex Sub, Sea-dweller or Deep Sea? Haven’t tried the latter two in metal and concerned that 43mm and 44mm maybe too big for my wrist (7 inches). But love the last two more. Can I wear it at work?
Holding all compensation (base, variable + RSUs) equal, would you work for Facebook vs. where you are now? (consider other things like more work life balance, less upward mobility (?), brand perception, future economic landscape, etc...)
