If you spend enough on food and drink, absolutely. I pick up 5+ person dinners on it all the time and get venmos which significantly decreases the cost of my meal through getting 4x points on whole meal

yes if you use ubereats and grubhub a lot; that's $240 back per year

If you have a corporate Amex, you can get $100 off your annual fee each year

Just called them about the $100. It’s normally for opening a new card, but they applied to my account as a courtesy. The credit will start applying next cycle, does not give you back what you already paid

I have Amex points on corp card and need to buy a long haul flight.
