I have the chase freedom unlimited + chase sapphire preferred duo. Love it and have had it for years now but wondering if there’s any value in getting a 3rd travel card (Amex)? Or should I stick to what I have?

I added the Amex Gold to my Chase duo, to get the 4x points on restaurants and grocery stores. Here’s how I try to maximize points with all three:

This is a cool list. I’d add that my mix is the CSR plus Amex Blue Preferred (6% for groceries and 4% for gas) and Capital One Savor (4% at restaurants). The fee on both is under $100. What else do you like about the Amex Gold?

Do you travel frequently? I would suggest getting one if you do (<3-4 personal trips/yr). Business trips also add up nicely on it. I have the CSR

I use my Amex platinum more like a travel insurance card. Since I fly United frequently, I love the chase point transfer and it transfers super fast.

If you travel very often by plane greater than 4 times per year, then the rewards can be very worth it for the Amex.

Capital one venture x is a good one to apply.

I have a chase sapphire preferred card. I have never used the points but this summer we are going to Italy and I’m going to cash them in on the flight. Can I use the points on any airline, or just the ones thru the chase site? The flights on the chase site seem more expensive than the ones I found not on the chase site.

I believe you can also transfer em to specific airlines if you see good points values for flights there. Look at The Points Guy website for some intel on strategies.

Anyone working from EY Kolkata GDS office?


I just got an invite to interview 3 of 3 with a company I’m interested in. But, I also really like where I’m currently working, and they’ll be hella short-staffed if I take this new role. Is there a way I can let them know I’m interviewing for other opportunities? I’m pretty confident they won’t show me the door. They’ve been holding off on hiring a director for our team, and I just learned it’ll be January before they expect to hire (18 months). I want them to realize the cost of that choice.

To those of you who don’t want to live in London forever, I’m really interested to know what your career plans are - even if it involves moving industry.

Hello! I have 9 years total of healthcare experience and 5 years of that I was a Residential supervisor for a brain injury rehabilitation. I don’t have a degree only college credits I’m trying to obtain a Psychology degree. I’ve been applying to countless jobs on Indeed and barely get an call backs for an interview.

What do you do with a senior manager who seemed lost all the time? Granted he is new in the engagement - we both are.

Does not know what is happening on the file or does not seem to care to learn about it. Would only know about things that come through his emails, and would only care where things are at when we are reporting to the partner.
