Best 3rd Amex card to pair with Amex Platinum and Amex Gold? I don’t have a business

What is the benefit of having both the gold and plat?

like

Probably the everyday or EDP card if you can exceed 30 transactions a month

like

Gold is for dining and groceries and platinum is for airfare and hotels

like

Blue cash everyday

Are you valuing MR at 2c to get those amounts? I'd prefer 6c back over 4mr

Why not Bonvoy??? One free night a year, edges out plat on points too I think

Why limit yourself to Amex?

Also, unless your are using every penny of dining/airline credits on your gold card (or value MR at well over 1c) it takes a lot of spending in those bonus categories to justify the annual fee. Many other popular cards offer 2-3% in those categories (plus others) with no annual fee.

Amex doesn't have very many MR personal cards. Blue Cash is really your only option unless you are loyal to Delta, Marriott, or Hilton.

Blue Business Plus is probably what you are looking for with 2MR on all purchases, no AF, but not a personal card. Do you have a hobby that could qualify as a small business? It doesn't take much.

Question - which Amex did you get first and did you get the promo points for the second? I have gold and a 100,000 pt promo for plat but I’m not sure if I can still get it after having gold already

Yes, you can get the Platinum. Order doesn't matter.

I’ve talked to Amex before and if you’ve ever had an Amex card in your lifetime you can’t get the 100k platinum bonus, only 60k

I’ve heard the new Schwab 100k deal may target existing Amex customers

Probate w/out will, decedent left behind two minor children. Decedent's only asset is a lien on her marital home awarded in her divorce decree. There's no deadline to satisfy the lien, and the parties did not execute a note for the lien or a deed transferring the house into husband's name alone. Decedent's debts amount to significant portion of the lien value. My questions:

1) does either the lien and/or lack of deed constitute an interest

Do you mention who your clients are in interviews? I can never tell what the right way to do this is.
