A think the swing really lies in Delta lounge and status with SPG and Hilton are pretty big perks. If these don't matter to you than CSR is your winner. Otherwise Amex platinum is your card. The travel credit flexibility is key as well; Amex is pretty limited while CSR is much more general

Amex plat if you can book your flights through it. At 5X multiplier for Amex MR (vs 3X for Chase UR for every dollar, it's a no brainer to go with Amex. Plus there are fringe benefits like centurion lounges and the like. It doesn't offer anything like $300 travel credit but all my Uber / taxi rides are reimbursed anyways, so...

Sapphire Reserve as far as I know. As long as that $400 annual fee is worth it for flights/benefits you would otherwise pay for. And you all probably know this but: pointsguy.com

Amex platinum for me due to the travel comfort it provides. Plus it looks so much fucking cooler it's not even close.

Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.

it feels like every survey about working from home is (poorly) designed to answer the useless question "would you rather work from home or from the office." I submit that the set of people who prefers to have only one of those two options, always and forever, is the null set. which means it DOES NOT MATTER because the correct answer is always going to be "make both possible." you're welcome, HR departments everywhere.
