Amex point redemption sucks

like

I built a spreadsheet of point to dollar value for redemptions. Home Depot is actually the best

It'd be kinda hard to do it anonymously...

They were only coupons, not true gift cards. So you couldn't double them up anyway

Better conversion ratio than linking your Amex to your airbnb account though. Oh well...

That's the worst redemption option ever

I'm going somewhere remote with no hotels nearby, so it's the best option for me

Lol you should make a blog with that kind of analysis

@D2 can you share? :)

I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card. My meal expenses are per diem so I'm thinking about the AmEx Gold card as it has 4x points on dining. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on personal cards for consultants and how to go about my corporate card as well! TIA

Hi everyone, hope you are doing well. I applied to BCG and received an email from them telling me I was on the waitlist for interviews. What is the chances of getting an interview if I am on the waitlist? I am not well connected with BCGers, any recommendations on who to contact? Do any one of you think they can help me or connect me to someone willing to help from the inside? I applied to Atlanta, Boston, and Miami. I am on a F1 visa which makes things harder, MBB being kind of my only options.

Hi 🐠, need some advice. Was told by my manager that time doing research (for info related to my client) is not client billable and has to be charged to the overhead code.

I asked for a non-billable code that counts towards utilization but was told my utilization is fine even though I’d be billing <40hrs & to use OH code
