The points guy

- Utilities, and other bills (unless you are hit with a CC processing fee) - some credit cards have their own personal deals page of offerings for various companies/vendors with an additional percent off of site wide purchases. You’re bound to find a deal for a company that you were already planning on shopping at.

*even if hit with a CC processing fee; i was going to come in a little short so tossed rent on the card, $75 CC fee was significantly more than washed out by the sign up bonus

Look up manufactured spend on flyertalk. But if you are doing it for an AMEX card, don’t even think about trying to do it that way. Basically insta shutdown.

Friend of mine connected his amex to Venmo and shot like 2k to a friend with no fee, doesn’t count for points by themselves but counts for spending requirement

I got my I-140 approval but EY Law said they can’t start I-485 until I get promoted. I’m trying to see whether I should apply H4 visa for my spouse so she can have an H4 EAD or wait until October to do this given I don’t get promoted and I-485 will be stalled for another year.

Hi All, a new analyst in Deloitte Advisory. Deloitte told me they will apply for H1B next year. But for Green Card sponsorship, my seniors told that I would be eligible in 2 years but i140 is only submitted if I become a Senior Consultant. My seniors told that I it would take upto 5 years of consistent performance to become a senior consultant, so my question is that if I get my H1B visa selected next year and it takes me 5 years to become senior consultant would that be OK for GC?

It's not dry and dead out there. Started looking only 6 weeks back. Attended 3 interviews. Accepted one offer. Transfer approved in 3 business days. Joining Chase next week. Keep looking guys. I just went to each of the 'careers' pages.. Updated resume to match the requirements on each posting. Called out on resume that I need immigration sponsorship. Had a cover letter for each posting. Before that I spent money on getting a professional resume from Monster. Highly recommended. Good luck all.

If just money is the critriea, what wiĺl you take.. 1.3cr in India or 325k in US.. We are currently in India and between me and my wife we make 1.3cr annually and live in hyderabad with own home. I do have a L1 visa and wife wants to shift to US and i expect we can get to about 325k through transfers in our respective companies. I want to stay in India so we can spend time with both of our parents next 10-15 years...

Does anyone have any recommendations for a single pane of glass bank I can use to manage everything from a single login? I currently have a checking account, a HYSA, several different credit cards, a brokerage account, and a Traditional IRA/Roth IRA (Need support for both backdoor & mega backdoor) scattered across different institutions for each and it's getting annoying to manage things. From my research it looks like either Chase or Charles Schwab are the best bets, but no HYSA for either.
