Hmm did they hire one of the Big 4 to get advise? Increased premium, lower coverage -> sounds like our health insurance

$100 yearly at Saks Fifth Avenue, also mobile phone credit. I’ve also recently used $50 Home Depot credit. It’s a little work but not that hard to get value out of it.

We use the saks credit when we want to buy someone a nice gift but not pay a lot for it. It’s amazing

And reduced benefits.

Also, the $200 hotel credit is only for FHR? That's a complete joke. Literally the only useful new credit is Clear.

That's one way to reduce overcrowding in lounges 🤷‍♂️ Be careful what you wish for

Agree with RS 100%. Best thing to happen was when American and Delta changed their policies around the lounge benefit a few years past.

I typically just expense the fee anyway

My current and my past firms (boutiques) all allowed expensing them, if you travel regularly.

Is there much benefit in having this over chase sapphire reserve other than centurion lounge access if you are lucky enough to frequent airports that have them?

like

Nope, CSR is a lot better unless you need access to those specific lounges.

🥳🥳

Meh, putting my clear membership on it makes it almost break even. Just need to find another 40 or so in benefits

Will they still give the corporate advantage discount for having a Corp Amex?

So how does one take advantage of these benefits if it’s your corporate card (ie not for personal use)? Take the gym membership for example - do you need to sign up with Corp platinum card and then have the credit they offer zero it out? Then repeat for each benefit?

These benefits are only for the personal version

Honestly I’m just gonna keep it. Who am I kidding?

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.
