Amex is a transfer partner and have a 40% bonus right now. Not a great use of points but for so little I think it makes sense.

Unfortunately, it’s not. Can you find someone who would give you 8000 points? The guy in the thread below this is selling 100,000 so maybe they would only sell you 8,000?

I received a job offer today for an entry level position. I lack experience in this field and didn't tick off all the boxes in the job description. I completed 2 conversational interviews + 1 additional interview with a skills test. They were very impressed with my skills test and all the interviewers seemed to like me a lot. I think the offer they gave was fair with market price & it pays more than my current job + benefits. I've always been told to negotiate but should I in this case?
