10k a month in personal expenses? Baller. And if you mean the corporate card, the rewards structure isn't that much more beneficial since all your travel is booked through Concur.

Agree with P1. No additional benefit except access to Amex Clubs at the handful of airports that have them

Or Marriott gold status?

Maybe. But you should be higher than that anyway with the amount of travel you're about to do

Or points in general?

Yes. You get to earn points on spend. Depends on how your firm negotiates the corp platinum package

Amex Business Platinum card is not the same thing as the Amex Platinum.

then what's the point of the upgrade if your travel expenses are not giving you 3-4x on your travel spend? just the lounge access?...

Has anybody cut ties with their parents? It’s something that I’ve considered for over 5 years but living at home during COVID has really hammered home how toxic this environment is and is having a severe effect on my mental health. If there’s anyone who’s cut ties I’d love to hear advice, before vs after effects, if it was worth it.
