D1, have you done this recently? Heard AmEx was getting smart on this?

Buy United miles

Which airline do you have selected

Haven't selected one yet, K1. Just got the card. Thoughts? I have been flying Delta and southwest, but may soon need to switch to American for nonstop.

I fly delta but I was flying united to Hawaii so I elected united and then used the allowance to upgrade my seats because the upgrade posts as united.

My H1B visa transfer with EY has been approved. We have received the e-approval. Can I now resign or give notice at my current firm? The guidance apparently is to wait for physical copy of the approval before officially resigning. But that date is uncertain and I’m afraid I could get the physical copy a day before my start date or a week after that. I’d like to give my firm around two weeks notice and I am scheduled to start on 27th Sept. Thoughts? As usual, radio silence from my EY recruiter.

Trying to decide between two portfolio ops roles, both in the Bay Area: Small-ish VC firm, ~135k base + 35k bonus Medium PE firm, ~115k base + 115k bonus Which would you choose? I’m leaning towards the PE firm bc it’s more hands-on, faster learning curve, and higher TC, but the VC role seems to have a better WLB and generally sounds cooler (getting exposed to VC vs continuing in the corporate world). What do you think?
