For me the $300 for the plat upgrade for Corp card is worth it. Home airport (SFO) has an Amex lounge - so use that a couple times a month, plus points collections (true not 5x, but better than nothing). Fee paid for itself with meals and booze at the lounge - not to mention with a return flight to Hong Kong this year on points.

I thought AMEX Plat is $550/year. Personal card anyways

Personal is $550/year and AU cost more

Corporate card isn’t worth it because the rewards aren’t as good. You don’t get 5x rewards

Also no concierge, since you can't use for personal expenses

I have the personal card and think the benefits I’m getting out of it outweigh the steep annual fee

I have the Personal and previously had the small business; both of those are worth fees; corporate card isn't

Ok thank you

I'm new to this. I have a Chase Sapphire Preferred for personal use. My company has given me a Green Corporate AMEX. What cards can I apply for to earn points and get lounge access? I can only use the Green Corporate Card for work related travel.

Op, I’m curious what your eqd’s and eqms were for CK.

Lost sense of maximizing points/mileage value for int’l flights. Why is Detla redeeming so much more for some routes than Chase UR and even other partner airlines? E.g. non-stop economy btw Detroit-Seoul // Delta redeeming 160k on its own route while Chase UR 123k & Korean Air 80k for same route (code share)... I get it all depends on timing but still weird directly using Delta Skymiles on its own Delta route is more expensive than going through other methods....

Recently got Chase Sapphire Preferred and got the 100k points post the 4K spend! I just noticed that AMEX personal cards are giving a recurring statement credit if you have a corporate card. Do you recommend a) I should get a personal AMEX given I have CSP b) if so, which AMEX? Platinum, gold or another one. Thanks!!

Hi Big4, I'm coming up close to 2 years of work exp and I'd love to explore a role at EY, KPMG and PwC in analytics and data engineering. I'd been looking at Deloitte as well, however on multiple occasions Deloitte recruiters told me that I need more "years of experience" without factoring my skillsets. On conducting research, I found developers writing basic SQL queries that I could script at the beginning of my career. While I'm still learning, I'd appreciate anyone who can help :) Cheers!
