Chase points junkie here.

I suggest the Chase trifecta: your card, Freedom Flex, and Freedom Unlimited. All earn Ultimate Rewards points, just at different multipliers for different spend categories. You can pool your points and redeem for travel at 1.25 cents per point, or transfer to hotels and airlines at 1:1. There is a lot of guidance out there about how to maximize Chase redemptions. I have normal spending patterns but have figured out how to use Chase points to take every family vacation for free over the past decade. My favorites are transfers to Southwest, Hyatt, United, and British Airways (which allows you to book on American).

Please DM me for a referral link!

Thnnnks for that! I didn’t mention but I meant outside of chase, already have those ones too :P

Bonvoy Boundless for sure! And then your main airline you fly most often credit card would be my next two cards.

I'm working on a Fintech startup related to commercial banking pricing. We would like to do some "expert interviews" with current RMs (we would compensate your time.) We want to better understand the friction points when it comes to price C&I or CRE loans. Please DM me if you are interested.

We are not looking for any private information, but more anecdotal evidence of issues that can be improved.

Several years ago I was backing in South America and I met an older guy (50s) who introduced himself as a writer & producer in LA for a well-known early 2000s sitcom. He invited me to breakfast at his hotel, we ended up hanging out for a couple of days & he convinced me to let him take some nude photos, which was actually pretty fun. Despite his efforts I didn't sleep with him, even though he was really pushy.
I googled him recently and apparently he's been arrested for SA other women
