Commit to a hotel chain, and get a card to match (ie a Marriott card).

Chase Reserve.

I guess the only issue is that I need to wait then since chase has that 5/24 rule. I had the reserve a long time ago but cancelled it before I started consulting :(

Hotel branded card or AMEX Plat.

Platinum gives much more flexibility on point redemption but you have to book through the Amex portal to get 5x back. The Marriott branded Amex is another good choice (6x back on Marriott.com). If you don’t want high annual fees there is the $95/yr Marriott chase card.

I have 2 job offers currently on the table. I am a 4th year tax manager. I am grossly undercompensated (25k between offers and current comp). I haven't had the staffing on jobs this year and have been flying by the seat of my pants to meet deadlines and keep clients happy. I know 9/15s won't be met because I was overbooked to begin with due to resignations over the past year. The stress has been affecting my health. I've been with the firm over 10 years. Do I give just 2 weeks or work thru 9/15?
