MD got jokes 😘

I got amex gold when I used to travel. I had per diem so used to use it to pay for all travel meals and banked a lot of points really quickly. Still hanging on to it because I order in quite often and the 250 gets easily offset by the perks.

I have the Chase Freedom Unlimited. It’s 1.5% back on everything and then I use CSR for travel, food, etc. You can also transfer points from the freedom to the reserve card with just a click and redeem for 150% the value for travel. Great combo! Since you don’t want the CSR, maybe start with the freedom unlimited.

2 totally different reward systems. Check each of the point transfer partners of amex and chase. Make sure it works for you. I love amex, but the transfer partner airlines are useless to me.

I got the AMEX gold because I don’t use much of the other chase cards anymore. The benefits with Gold were more useful to me!

Thank you!!! I got pre-selected offers mailed to me (AMEX expires today), would you still be able to refer me? If so, I will DM you once I make a decision.

Csp, the current offer is the highest I’ve seen and the transfer to partners option is better with UR since most ppl aren’t flying internationally at this moment

Also the current 100k offer on CSP doesn't include the $150 grocery credit

Also if you enroll through the corporate offer on their website, you'll get an added 100 dollars back on your card annually.

No its on the personal amex. Call them up to ask for it. Their customer service is really good

Usually when I have to decide, I make a spreadsheet in true consultant style and breakdown the cash value of points and all the credits/offers. 100k CSP bonus points is a very awesome deal (the 120k one was even better).

Good thing about Chase cards is you’re eligible for the bonus every ~48 months. AMEX is bonus once per lifetime.

I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
