Depends, do you want cash back, or to use rewards for travel etc. Do you have certain categories where you’d like to maximize rewards (like groceries, gas etc.)?

Thanks, Rewards for travel and maximize the points on groceries

If they don’t have credit cards / history of credit probably wouldn’t qualify for Amex gold though

This is like asking what the best car to buy. It depends. I have about 15 credit cards and can talk you through each one I have and why. I think that will help.

Here's the list:
Amex platinum (vanilla )
Amex platinum (charles schwa edition )
Amex gold
Amex Blue Cash Preferred
Alex blue business plus
Amex Marriott
Amex Amazon prime
Chase Sapphire preferred (downgraded from Reserve after 3 years)
BOA travel rewards
GS Apple card
Penfed Gold
Penfed Platinum
Discover IT
And a few other insignificant ones

Venture X hits many points, with solid travel rewards and 2x points on everyday spend. 100k sign up bonus.

Hi, I have recently saved some money and wanted to invest it to make something out of it instead of just letting it dry in my bank account.
I wanted to ask if anyone has been facing a similar situation and if you have started investing by yourself (stock picking, ETF, crypto) or just done it through your bank and let them do the work. If it’s the first option, also I would appreciate any advice.

Anyone investing in XRP? I have been. Ray Dalio keeps saying there will be a new world order and a digital currency is among us. The money printer just devalues the dollar more. I’ve moved money into gold, BTC and XRP while lowering my equity position. I still max my ROTH and have a passive VFIAX brokerage on auto invest so I’m still long on equities. I may be biased from working in crypto start-ups and doing some enterprise blockchain work in banking. But I think change is coming. Thoughts?
