A friend had one.

Went to a restaurant and he tried to pay for the meal. The waiter looked at it and said sorry we don’t take Amex.

A family member has one. Purely a status symbol. $15000 activation fee then $5000/year, something like that. Benefits are marginally better than platinum.

Can’t use it for some transactions, e.g square because the metal is too thick

Fees vary by country - a few years back, for US, I think it was 7500 initial and 2500 a year after.

I agree, it’s mostly just a silly gimmick.

I had one, only was fun for the cache, my Amex platinum has similar perks, better points, and an annual fee that is “normal"

The card used to be worth it, but they nerfed it. Pass

My New York City lease ends soon, and I will be moving into my parents' home in NJ for the time being (maybe 6 months) to save money while we wait to see the status with WFH, vaccine, etc.

I'm changing my official USPS address and billing address to my parents' home - what should I do from a tax perspective and ensure I'm not paying double stare income taxes?

Is it still considered working in NY/living in NJ if we're WFH? Should I cease NYC taxes from my paycheck (form IT-2104).

A month ago I was given a promotion w/o a raise, and my new responsibilities were announced to the whole office. I’ve been persistent in following up to discuss salary and it’s always a song and dance about “benchmarking exercises”. The latest is that they “may” be able to offer 4-5% since it’s “a promotion but not a level change”… but no sense of timing commitment and frankly, less money than I know I’m worth. Really like the work but it’s crushing me. Any last ditch negotiation ideas?
