Flying internationally today. Went to the airport 4 hrs early to barhop the lounges (KLM/Airfrance, Delta, United, AMEX Centurion). Being a frequent flier has ruined me. What am I doing with my life
Torn between using the Amex Corp card or CSR.. hard to justify using Amex when the CSR points are so much better
Who knows anything about how this new federal per diem is going to work with the new op model? Will we still use Amex, or personal cards instead?
Amex has the worst password requirements. Have to reset my password every time because it always has to be some ridiculous spelling that is unnatural and can never remember
Does anyone have an offer for the Amex Platinum for 100k points (rather than the 60k offer)?
Thinking about getting the Amex Platinum for personal use. Worth it? Do you get AA lounge access?
Asking for a friend - has anyone left a big 4 with an unpaid amex balance ? Does it go on your personal credit ?
ACN: how do we leverage points for our Amex corporate? I’ve heard we have to have a personal Amex and we can transfer?
What happens to AMEX points when you leave the firm? Not 100% sure how/if the cc account is closed out. I am hoping to either keep my points for the long term post-resignation or just use them...
Can I transfer points from my corporate Amex to my delta Amex and use for seat upgrades?
Just got approved for Amex Platinum. It is not an upgrade on my current Gold. I am going to cancel the Gold. Is it an easy process? Can I keep my points?

What would be good redemption value (cpp) for AmEx rewards points? (Booking using the Amex Travel site with 35% points returned)

AMEX platinum or chase sapphire reserve ?
Left my credit card at the bar last night. AmEx agent: the last charge on this card was $134 at Johnny's Hideaway. Is that legitimate? Me: (contemplating life) yeahhhhh, that was me
Amex Gold. Does it worth the $195 annual fee? When it says 3X point for flights reserved directly on airlines website, does it work for flights we reserve on company's Amex Travel Portal?
Is it safe to go for visa extension (dropbox appointment) at US consulate in Mumbai given we have all the necessary documents including NIE letter from employer?
Has anyone stamped their US H1B visa from Cananda (non- canadians) recentlt? Need to know about the process, any complications etc.
My H1B visa transfer with EY has been approved. We have received the e-approval. Can I now resign or give notice at my current firm? The guidance apparently is to wait for physical copy of the approval before officially resigning. But that date is uncertain and I’m afraid I could get the physical copy a day before my start date or a week after that. I’d like to give my firm around two weeks notice and I am scheduled to start on 27th Sept. Thoughts? As usual, radio silence from my EY recruiter.
Keep getting visa issues (canadian looking in big tech in the US) and had offer rescinded after employer realizing I need H1B. Any advice?
Life of non-immigrants depend on the Visa they hold and it’s so sad these companies don’t have a team where we can speak to someone immediately in case of a visa emergency situation . In EY you need to submit a form and wait for days together to get a reply from a human. Mean time you would have gone through 5 anxiety attacks.
Chase UR is migrating systems, so they might not be able to find recent rewards bookings. Ask for a specialist if you have that issue - saved me a lot of time!

Does anyone know how long is the H1B processing time right now ? (For new visa). My case was received on May 21st - Still have not heard anything.
If you get laid off is it possible to go to a B2 visa and then back to a H1B? Extremely stressed with current situation and having purchased a house recently seems to be adding additional pressure.
Cleared first round and my on-site is next week. It just came to my notice something about visa sponsorship in JD. It states “This role is not eligible for immigration sponsorship.” I have H1B but I would need H1b transfer and GC sponsorship. Can anyone help me out here.
Looking for a role in social impact consulting in Mumbai, have 5 years experience within the social sector ( TFI+CSR )
Talked to SO about wanting more effort from him, he said he believes in giving what he is receiving & doesn’t chase. However I like to be pursued and feel wanted. Is this a situation of just wanting different things? Or should I start putting in more effort to pursue him and see if it’s reciprocated?
Looking for a Tudor black bay 58 with black dial on nato? Tourneau in NYC on Madison and 53rd has one. I bought it last night then exchanged it just now for the leather strap.

Anyone who renege and get any backlash? I signed an offer with a big 4 for full time and am still interviewing with other companies. ( Was an intern last summer and my offer got pushed out to summer cause my masters is 1.5 years and I graduate in December (In my defense the big 4 refused to let me go to another practice.) Plus pressured by parents to accept something before I graduate.
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

When you call in sick but aren’t sure when you’ll be back in the office, do you just update your team daily about whether or not you’re coming back? Or call in sick once and don’t checkin until better
Why does the third party recruiter I am using perform reference checks, and not HR/hiring manager from the firm I am interviewing with? Curious.

Your thoughts on using a health care savings account with a high-deductible insurance plan. I missed the boat on this, as I am about a year from retirement. But I think it would have been a smart way to get tax-free coverage for the gap years before I qualify for Medicare.
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
