For those of you who have both Chase (reserve/preferred) & Amex (platinum/gold/corporate) cards. Do you find it hard being in two different “points ecosystems”? Or is it not a big deal?

I’ve been underwhelmed by Amex corp. I enroll in the rewards for the Uber and rental payments (because it makes expense reporting easier) but everything else on the CSR. 3x points is a no brained!

Wondering if I should commit to Amex because of getting Amex points from corporate card. (Even if it’s just 1x)

They're very similar, but I actually use the Centurion lounges a lot so I'm not ready to get rid of my Amex Platinum.

Not a big deal for me since I accrue a lot of points. I stopped using my CSR card and my Citi Prestige has replaced it. I also have a Amex Platinum as well but will be switching over to my Bonvoy Amex credit card since I don’t use the concierge or lounges as much. Prestige for 5x restaurants and Bonvoy for 6x hotels.

I do 🤷‍♂️

Hi Fishes, I have cleared Qualcomm interview and had initial conversation with HR where she mentioned the CTC I’ll get and HR also sent some stupid form to “Justify” around 10-15 points on team work, motivation and other bs. I asked the HR for a call so we can negotiate CTC and didn’t hear back from her. Been more than a week. Is this much delay normal in Qualcomm? Should I keep waiting or did I get ghosted by HR?
