About to file 485 in 3 months, is it worth it to do H1b stamping now or just wait??

Do the stamping. You never know how long the 485 will take

If you file 485, you can file ead too, so why stamping?

Valid point but what if you need to travel out of the country urgently while waiting for the ead.
