CSR all the way

I like the Amex Platinum, even though the yearly fee is $550, but you get some good perks.

OP, CSR pays for itself, simple math. Feel free to click my link to see its perks and apply from it :)

My two cents:CSR is better for earning points unless you can always book trough amex travel. Amex platinum has great perks though which may or may not make the cost a little easier to eat for you. I have and use both, but probably wouldn’t do the amex if I didn’t live near / regularly fly to airports with centurion lounges

Amex Plat is awesome

I’m using Amex SPG for everything to get maximum points

If you live or travel to a Centurion Lounge location, Amex Plat

Chase sapphire reserve is best for rewards however Amex lounges are the best of the best so it’s a trade off

Centurion card

If you’ve ever endured the inflight AA pitch, it’s obviously the Barclays AA card

Amex Plat for paying for airfare. Earns 5x CSP/R for everything else

If you get an AMEX Plat, can I refer you so I can get the bonus points? Thanks

Help needed! Asking for a Brazilian friend who just recently had his O-1 visa approved (first one after an OPT). he got started on a couple jobs, but he’s always getting stuck on the “your I-94 is expired” issue. Some lawyers told him to leave the country, but he can’t seem to schedule an interview in any US consulates, as most are still closed/not taking non emergency cases due to covid. Has anyone been through this situation or have any tips on how to work around it? Thank you!
