Does anyone have both Chase Sapphire Preferred and Marriott Bonvoy Boundless? Which one do you like better? Thinking of getting one of them but can’t decide which one
I know people say to not chase money but I’ve been in the industry for about 5 years (all in NYC at big old agencies) and I’ve never made anything of note.

I haven’t even finished the final round with the company and they are asking my passport for visa purpose already…why do rush? (Not in the states) Also I am in the process with mbb.
