I go for Chase. I have both the Reserve and a lower tier card depending on purchase type to maximize point accrual since they share a point pool

If you can expense all work stuff on personal then go Chase. Else, platinum as you can link the points earned on your corporate amex

smart

How do you do this? I have a personal platinum and corporate Amex - did not know this existed.

Chase sapphire for points redemption and Amex platinum for comfort (lounge access)

Lounge access is a wash. Plus the priority pass on the CSR includes priority pass restaurants, which the Platinum doesn't.

Amex for lounges and card footprint/sex appeal on the table CSR for points I believe

I’d do Amex Plat for travel and get Chase Sapphire Preferred for those point activity($95 annual fee). If opened at chase bank branch in person, there fee is apparently waived.

Advise working with a coworker who doesn't "answer the question directly": I just joined a new company and I am starting to work with a coworker but I feel like he tends to deflect my questions all the time and he often gives a vague/BS answer. FOR EXAMPLE, I stepped in reviewing the list of deliverables needed for the project, I provided my input but instead of discussing the actual context, he would just gave me a bunch of historical background information. How do I "cut to the chase"?

When you get a rental car, what do you do to make sure you don’t get taken advantage of for some bogus issue/scratch that’s already on the car? Take pic/video before, tell the checkout person of any issues (although this can be hard especially if at a smaller airport & you get the keys in the airport and there’s no gate when you leave), buy the rental insurance? If you have a card that covers rental cars (CSR, Amex Hilton) do you decline rental insurance and use the card benefits?

I have Amex points on corp card and need to buy a long haul flight.

Does that mean I’ll then have to spend more on the card to get rid of the credit?
