Not many cards doing great sign up incentives right now. I just decided to apply for the Chase Freedom Unlimited for the 1.5% on all purchases and the 5% at grocery stores through the end of the year. Since you have the CSR you can transfer those points to yourself for a higher redemption.

I don’t think you can get the sign up bonus if you’ve opened the Freedom Unlimited within the last 4 years. But I think the Chase Freedom (the one with rotating 5% categories) is doing a similar bonus so you could apply for that one if you already have the Freedom Unlimited

Delta Gold Amex vs Alaska cards

Anyone have pros or cons of either? Found an offer for Alaska that has 60k + $100 statement credit + companion pass annually after $3k spend in 3 months. Delta Gold offer is as stated in their site. Preference would go to whichever one offers an instant card number to use, but I believe both of them do that.

Curious if anyone else is or has been in the same boat. I started as an assistant at an entertainment law firm prior to passing the bar.
