Is there any benefit to having chase sapphire preferred and Amex gold (already have preferred card)? The 4x dining for Amex is appealing, but they both seem like travel/airline cards

The biggest benefit of having both is AMEX isn’t widely accepted abroad, so the CSP will be helpful there

I have Savor for 4x dining and it’s super!

The chase preferred, not so much. But the reserve gives you a points multiplier for travel redemption (I think points guy has it at $0.15 value per point). Also check out the points transfer partners.

My principal approached me in the car pick up line on Friday to inform me that I’ve taken to many days off & school has just started. I took 1day off when my daughter tested positive for Covid, I had an doctor’s appt that had been scheduled 6 months ago to see the hematologist. Being that I’m anemic, current labs showed I need to have 2 iron infusions. I put in for 2 more days off to have that done. He told me in the future to wait until a work day! We done have any until December!!

Have you ever quit a job and began your new job just to realize it is not what you were expecting? I’m at a new company and I completely hate it. The role described during the interview and job description is not even close to the work and lack of responsibility I actually have. I feel as if I was misled just so they could fill in a spot. My work is all loan staff. The challenging part is I have to force myself to complete my job. I’ve never was like this before. I have spoken (continued)
