Better credit card: citi double cash or chase sapphire preferred? Probably going to be primary card, not worried about interest rates, looking for best rewards

Chase Sapphire Reserve if you tend to eat out often or travel a lot. You may have missed the 100k points sign on opportunity, but I've heard they might still honor that if you go into a branch. Also, I believe the AMEX blue cash preferred beats both of those but haven't looked at cards since I got my CSR.. waiting for American Express to bring a 100k+ points offer for platinum

Citi Double Cash is great for its simplicity, 2% cash back, no annual fee, nothing more. CSP has a lot of benefits for travelers and an annual fee so do the math. There is NO downside to Citi Double Cash other than the hard inquiry

It's hard to justify CSP when you get 2% on everything. cSP has no foreign transaction fees. That might be the only reason

Graduated w/ masters degree last year and wanting to apply for entry strategy roles at MBB/Tier2/Big4. Did an internship for a boutique since graduation and currently work for a different boutique full time. So not sure if I count as “graduate” or “experienced hire”. Is it smarter to apply ASAP or wait until official recruiting season in fall? I’m guessing starting date wouldn’t be until 2021 anyways but would like to place application at right time (I have referrals). Appreciate any advice!
