20 - CSP, 21 - CSR, when you see the ROI and can pass minimum spends through your clubs, internships, fraternity / sorority, business fraternity, etc. expenses it actually can make a lot of sense at an early age if you can be responsible

26M. Didn’t get one yet. I find that most travel I do is through alt travels or using points. For restaurants I liked the 4% from uber but I guess that’s going away.

My first card to my own name was the Amex Plat at 20. I had been an authorized user for ~2 years on a parent’s credit card. Not sure how I got approved.

Amex platinum is actually not hard at all to get approved for since you can’t carry a balance

18 - Amex Plat, back when there was a first year fee waived on the Ameriprise version. Little know fact is that the approval qualifications are the same for Plat/gold/green since they are all charge cards.

Corp Amex due date is Jan 25 but I have not been completely reimbursed for the amount due. Do I just wait and let it roll past the due date or pay out of pocket and get reimbursed later?

Real talk: I’m part of an affinity bar association and we have weekly happy hours. There’s a white dude (who is a partner at his firm) who always shows up. I guess he’s an “ally” but I feel like I can’t be candid about some things because he’s there. Also, at my firm we have a diversity retreat and recently this white associate complained she couldn’t participate. Thoughts?
