If you're flying through airports with Centurion Lounges often I would get the Platinum. By far the best domestic lounges and most of them have decent enough food that I can skip hitting up a restaurant for a quick airport meal. Otherwise Sapphire Reserve is the way to go. Pretty easy to earn points without Amex hoops to jump through that way. Also the CDR I'd essentially 150 a year for any consultant because you'll get the annual $300 rebate pretty easily.

Sapphire Reserve hands down

My only concern with CSR was a lot of the benefits seem like things I can already bill to firm and clients. Still worth it?

The visa process is time consuming and expensive and I will likely go on maternity leave shortly after arriving. Do I tell them? Or just see how it goes and then spring it on them? File under: Things men never have to think about.
