PS I know people laugh at Priority Pass but is helpful for personal travel abroad. Have used it in Helsinki, Brussels, Stockholm, etc.

Depends whether you fly delta and/or if home base has centurion lounge

Amex platinum. Delta+priority Pass+centurion

Platinum Card.

Delta. Regular Amex Platinum. Amex gets you into the Sky Club AND Membership Rewards (for fee) that you can use on either flights or "stuff".

like

Platinum card for sure. As others have stated it gets you complimentary Priority Pass, it'll pay for your global entry, and you get the membership rewards points for free.

Sorry, should have been cleared. Fly United most of the time. Here on H1b visa, so not eligible for TSA and guess same for Global entry :(

What's your home base? Have you already enrolled in membership rewards on your Corp green card?

Yup. Already enrolled in the rewards. Do they get transferred? Sure hope so. Home base is Houston

So I do Houston - NYC regularly

Shhhh

Just hit 55, 100 nights sounds horrible.....

It's 100 nights or 50,000 miles

Time to book some multi stopover flights then

I just lost my platinum membership!

I pivoted and realized that I actually don't want to care about work as much as I used to. I thought I'd get my spark back after burning out at the last job by moving into a new one, but turns out I just want to be average. I'm fighting my urges to overachieve here because I don't want to be rewarded by getting more work and responsibilities without more pay or a promo, which is what consistently happened to me at the last company. Thoughts? Advice?
