Best place to research is thepointsguy.com. Everyones comments here need to be taken with a grain of salt bc they likely have the best travel card that works for them and their specific spending habits & the rewards they value. I.e. store branded cards like the Hilton Hhonors or Marriott series really only give you the BEST rewards if you spend a lot at those brands of hotels and if you want to redeem at hotels. I’ve got a Hilton hhonors amex and I have accumulated several hundred thousand Hilton points from using it for all my hotel stays. But tbh I rarely redeem the points. So I also have a chase sapphire reserve which still has a great earn rate but much more flexibility for redemption. Plus you get other perks like $300 travel credit / year plus access to airport lounges around the world, which I value more. So go do your own research on thepointsguy; you may find that the best card for you is one none of us have suggested

Anyone able to share specifics on Amex Plat versus Chase Sapphire? And - anyone have both?

You made a good decision. If you follow some of the consultant meme IG accounts you’ll see jokes all the time about like 6 CSRs throw down to pay a restaurant check and how that must be a sign of consultants, there is a reason for that.

Amex Platinum especially if you’re a Delta flyer. Overall suite of benefits is better.

Does anyone know if Chase Sapphire Reserve points redeemed for hotel stays through Chase Ultimate Rewards are eligible for elite benefits or count towards Marriott/Hilton elite status?

If I’m understanding this, you’re saying use a redemption through ultimate rewards but still earn points on the redemption? I’m not sure but I’d guess no since you’d sort of be double dipping. But if you could still earn both that’d be an awesome loophole

What is the most amount of times you have Applied to one specific company? It could be different job titles and different states but how many times have you applied to the same company? Sodexo , levy, compass group, Hyatt Hilton Marriott have Applied to all those 30 or 40 times over the past three years. Talk about insanity. I stopped applying six months ago I’m no longer wasting my time with people like this!
