Get: 1) amex gold 2) downgrade your csr to chase freedom product; then apply for csp and get that 100k points

Ah didn't realize. Yes it's a 4 yr cool off so you can't get the CSP for another 2+ yrs

Fwiw I hold both Gold and CSR. Gold pays for itself with the corporate discount and food credits

Alaska miles seem to be viewed as the best within the points min maxing community - maybe a good second card option?

Did I need to get an H1B visa stamping if I’m in the US? I was on OPT and got my H1B while on it so ive been in the US since 2014, never left. It’s time to renew my H1B and the questionnaire is asking for my current visa info such as the visa number. I don’t have a visa stamp for my H1B because I was in the US. I do have one for my F1 that is obviously expired. I only have the I-747A for my H1B. Did I not get an H1B stamping when I needed to for 2+ years…?
