I just barely started at my firm and got staffed on a project which requires travel. My firm only allows me to expense hotels on a personal card, everything else goes on the corporate Amex. I’ve had a venture one card for 2 years now but am thinking about getting the chase sapphire reserve. Kind of lost here - any advice?
This past Saturday, as I drunkenly tried to find an Uber at 2:30 AM, Amex flagged my card for fraud and left me stranded because calling an Uber at night looked like “suspicious activity” for my profile. Not even Amex believes I have a social life anymore.
Ever heard “omg how are you single, you are fit, handsome and successful”. Gets on my nerves every time. I would like to be in a relationship but dating as a gay man is wack. All about sex, and the times I’ve caught feelings for a guy it’s not been “exciting” for him anymore as the “chase” is over. Apparently being available is a turnoff. And the comment “come on, you can get whom ever you want”..........

Divorce question: As part of divorce settlement, my ex owes me $50k in credit card debt. Their lawyer offered $0.50 on the dollar to settle by lump sum today. The debt owed to me is currently accruing 18% interest. Would you take it? Why or why not?
If you have a negative balance on your credit card (overpay every month) and use it until you go back to zero, do you still earn points/ cash rewards on your usage. Context: I am trying to see if I can essentially use my credit card as a debit card but still earn points at the same time.
My H1B visa (stamped) with my old employer is valid till September 2022, do I still need to get my new H1B stamped if I go visit my family in December? I am also married to a US citizen but we haven’t started the Green Card process yet.

MBB folks on H1-B who recently switched to FAANG - did you run into any issues with visa transfer? My transfer has been filed and I’m a bit nervous about USCIS’ perception of consultants and the current sentiment around H1-B visas.

Amex platinum hotel credit says per calendar year. If I just got mine in the mail, can I use the hotel credit before December then again next year? Trying to figure out if I should find something to use it on before year end or not

Any tricks to converting your Amex points into gift cards or some equivalent to get a better Amazon conversion? $70 for 10k points seems weak when a lot of the retailers do $100 for 10k.
