Always use it for grocery spend for the 4x. The 4x on dining is also very good but you may prefer 3x through CSR, there’s a good argument that the latter is more valuable. If you don’t have CSR, always use for dining. Sign up for the Uber Eats pass, free for 12 months. You also get $10 added in uber cash each month (for dining or uber rides) At the moment, we still get $10/mo reimbursement for Grubhub/Seamless, but my guess is this will get phased out at some point. Still worth it for now though. Also, if you have a corporate card, you might be eligible for a reduced annual fee. Look into it here (https://www.americanexpress.com/us/credit-cards/gcpadvantage/login/?eep=36038&channel=launch&extlink=us-pa-CPS-ltopr)

Amex charge cards (green gold plat) don’t have spending limits on paper, but they can limit your usage if their risk models determine you’ve reached a certain threshold. The Gold card is the best for restaurant spending. The blue cash preferred is better for Groceries - 6% cash back

Applying to industry after 2 yrs in a data-heavy strategy consulting role, and running into an odd problem: people are automatically putting me into a "heavy-quant" box and becoming apprehensive of my fit for a business role (strategy, FP&A, etc). 2 Qs: 1. Does this sound plausible, or am I overthinking based on a small sample? 2. How would you highlight your fit/interest in moderately quantitative roles?

I’m wondering if anyone could give me any advice on deciding?
