CSP has a 100k points bonus atm so I would jump on that, and then get the amex later Have both, I personally use amex more. The Uber perks and the $10 for GrubHub and the 4x grocery make it amazing for daily use

Why not Amex platinum?

Amex has a ‘once in a lifetime’ rule so if you upgrade you lose the chance at getting the signing bonus which usually has outsized value. I believe you can get a chase sapphire bonus every 4 years.

Wait why is this a choice? Why not both? Unless you're trying real hard to be under 5/24. Recently also read that Chase is having elevated SUB currently so might want to prioritize those. That said, CSR all the way.

Just stagger them, don't need to get them at the same time. Use Plastiq, usually everyone has rent to pay

Do CSP for the sign on bonus, after 1 year upgrade it to a CSR because CSP is useless. CSR has all the benefits

He is now resting with angles up in the heaven and I miss him a lot ❤️.

Life of non-immigrants depend on the Visa they hold and it’s so sad these companies don’t have a team where we can speak to someone immediately in case of a visa emergency situation . In EY you need to submit a form and wait for days together to get a reply from a human. Mean time you would have gone through 5 anxiety attacks.
