I’m waiting on my h1b transfer. If I got rfe, I really want to use the waiting time to visit my family (have more than enough pto left with my current employer). Anyone know if it’s possible to use my old I797 to get VISA stamp? Then putting notice after I’m back.
Reached a net worth of $50k today. 3 years ago I graduated $30k in debt and had to open a credit card to cover my moving expenses. This job is a grind but I’m grateful it’s enabled me to achieve this.
Amex Platinum Cardholders - you get $20/mo in statement credit through the end of the year when you use your card to pay for streaming services or telephone bills. These are separate credits.

What travel/rewards credit cards do you all recommend that will give you the most value for your buck (points, annual fees, intro offer, etc)? Originally, I planned on Southwest but read elsewhere to look at non-travel cards (e.g. Chase Sapphire Preferred and Amex Blue Cash Preferred).
Amex Platinum Users - How does “no preset spending limit” get reported to the credit bureaus? Just got approved and 6 months ago my credit was around 580 so this is a huge achievement for me, but I’m also obsessed with maintaining my credit score now.

This one is for folks on h1b visa. So at time when you have an offer in hand(not accepted the offer yet and h1b transfer process not yet begun) while you are working with your current employer, do you even speak to your employer about your new offer to see if they make a counter offer? Is there a risk involved with this approach assuming your current employer doesn't provide you with a counter offer and they ask you to leave immediately (and your h1b visa hasn't been transferred either)
