All the folks out there on a visa (e.g. H1B), what are some side hustles you have to earn some extra $$. Need some extra hope today to keep at it!

I know someone making decent money renting out their car on Turo. They have a entry level Merc and last I heard were making around 2-3k a month before tax.
Unsure if it is allowed but it seems H1b people are doing it.

Sorry to crush your hopes but almost every side hustle that needs some work efforts won’t likely be possible on H1b(Unless you have another part time H1b or something similar)

EY - And you responded by saying almost everything is permissible except another job. What if OP takes that advice and violates his/her H1b status? It is best not to give incorrect info to anyone.

United Platinum here - got an offer to pay ~$6k for upgrade to 1K. Thoughts on if it’s worth it?

Already belong to Club (United Infinite) and have CLEAR credit through Amex Platinum. Still have 40 plus points from hitting Platinum last year.

Unlikely to travel for business until late 2Q at earliest but have 2-3 transcontinental flights planned for summer and 1 transatlantic for fall. Maybe another 1-2 shorter trips this year as well. I imagine I’d use my extra plus points on all these.

Are other companies' big data systems as bad as Amex's?


Amex is the only company I've been with so I want to know from others how it's like in other companies. Hive is so slow. Yellowbrick is fast but not all cornerstone data is there and is practically useless for my team's use case. MLS crashes so often. Ask Aida support is so sloppy and they just regurgitate the same information over and over again. Is this an Amex thing or is this just how big data works everywhere?
