Just pay it off and don't use it anymore. Canceling accounts is dumb.

Plus, we are *required* to use Amex corp for all business related expenses. I know people switch out their Amex corp and still pay with Amex spg for hotels but i wanna be careful in case i get audited. Firm'd use any excuse to fire you

Makes sense given the sale to Marriott...

D1 if you do that you'll be hit with the annual fee.

Fair, D2

Why did you cancel?

Only had this card for a year, canceled before annual fee hits next week. Dont think there's a free alternative

@OP, I have had the card for over two years (second card I got after I graduated) never paid the annual fee because I always call and threaten to cancel and they waive the member fee+plus spg points when they see I charge in $800 hotel bill every week...also love their purchase protection, got me a new iPhone no questions asked when I cracked it.

A2: that auto voice msg wouldnt even get me to a rep, that's why i said Amex doesnt care anymore

They probably had too many people calling to threaten to cancel the card for retention incentive

Just read an article in Money mag ab this card - the APR on this is horrible. Sounds like a good move

EY1-If you're worried about an APR, then a rewards credit card is a foolish choice.

Hi everyone, hope you are doing well. I applied to BCG and received an email from them telling me I was on the waitlist for interviews. What is the chances of getting an interview if I am on the waitlist? I am not well connected with BCGers, any recommendations on who to contact? Do any one of you think they can help me or connect me to someone willing to help from the inside? I applied to Atlanta, Boston, and Miami. I am on a F1 visa which makes things harder, MBB being kind of my only options.

My H1B visa transfer with EY has been approved. We have received the e-approval. Can I now resign or give notice at my current firm?

But that date is uncertain and I’m afraid I could get the physical copy a day before my start date or a week after that. I’d like to give my firm around two weeks notice and I am scheduled to start on 27th Sept. Thoughts? As usual, radio silence from my EY recruiter.

Hey! I've always wanted to get into IB (prestige, money, you name it), however now that I'm in a more laid back environment (better WLB, "easier work") it doesn't seem as attractive as before and the pay is quite good for an analyst level (I think the pay is competitive even comparing with IB's pay in my country) . I wanted to know if anyone had the same experience and what were your thoughts (pursue an MBA and leave your comfort zone and "good pay" or just stick with it). TIA!
