Best travel card? The classic chase sapphire or the bank Americans travel rewards? Or some underdog? And why?

Barclaycard Arrivals Plus. Amazing service, clear rewards structure, World Elite MC benefits (no country exclusions on car rental CDW), always double rewards.


CSP hands down


Spend money on travel. Even if a card worked out to a 3% rebate for you, annual fees and your low card spend overall won't get you there fast enough. Just bite the bullet and pay for travel while you're young and single and healthy.


Chase sapphire not even a question. Double points on the broadest travel category and instant tranaferss

It seems CSP has annual fee and highest rates though. I mean the category is pretty broad which is helpful, and I don't plan on carrying a balance but having fees sucks

The fee is well worth it. It's waived the first year. You get 50K points for signup and if you get their freedom and ink cards it makes it really a no brainier considering you get 5x on so many good categories throughout the year. The primary rental car insurance is also a huge plus.

I have to spend 4K on it to get 50k points though

If a 4K spend in 90 days is a hurdle, you shouldn't have an expensive rewards card - really.

I mean I just don't spend that much - I like saving money. Maybe you're right - seems like it's a bad deal unless you are a huge spender.

Unless you're gonna redeem for international premium class travel, it's hard to value the miles at better than 2 cents each. You're probably best off with a no-annual-fee cash back card like Quicksilver.

Ahh I figured - I just wanna get into international travel while I'm young single and have a good job

Okay wel thanks for the advice I do appreciate it!!

Currently, I’ve got CSR, Amazon Rewards, BoA which gives me 3% groceries/4.5% dining, and a 2% from Fidelity. Are there other cards I should have to maximize points (major spends are travel, dining, groceries)? I considered Blue Cash Preferred, but at about $300/month on groceries, I ~break even on the annual fee compared to my BoA card (unless I did my math wrong). CFU seems only marginal benefit if I redeem for travel. Debating if the Freedom Flex is worth for potential of 5% back.


Realistically, where can I buy my first new SS rolex at list price? Something like an explorer or date just or 41mm op in blue/black/white or other neutral color. Every SS model seems to be sold out everywhere. I’m living in Los Angeles, but would be happy to travel elsewhere (and spend the nearly 11% sales tax on a vacation there instead 😂). Appreciate the help!

My CDs are brilliantly smart and I look up to them, but my partner and I are constantly being put on projects with these two where it feels like we’re competing with them. They have 15+ years experience and their scripts are always better than ours. Like why torture us? Our CCO and client are just going to pick their script anyways and we’ll never be able to beat it. I wish they could just help make our scripts better instead of us having to beat theirs. Anyone else have this struggle?
