Could anyone share any down-sides of opening a high-yield savings account with Amex?

You could make more money over time putting that money in an index fund. Certainly a little more risk, but the negative would be the likely return missed.

Yeah I use a hysa for my first home down payment savings

I think there are other High Yield Savings accounts that offer a better return.

I’ve been using Yotta this year.. it’s been awesome. I get a base return of .2% which is ~half of what other HYSAs are getting and then each week you enter a powerball type lottery to get the chance to win $10M but often win lower amounts. It’s kinda fun and I’ve seen great returns (almost so far 3% in May - was something like 18% in February. Full transparency was .92% in April). You get one powerball ticket per $25 up to a certain amount and then it becomes one ticket per $150 or something.

Anyone in tech - how do you handle junior Dev dudes who are simultaneously green, and too arrogant to admit they don't know what they're doing / won't admit a woman might know more than them. Had a Dev on my team drop the ball significantly on a client deliverable, but keeps insisting he understands and wastes hours trying to figure out stuff on his own bc he refuses to allow me to explain it to him. If I had the time, I'd just take over and do it myself at this point, but I don't.
