Unreliable, messed up my reservations 2/2 times in my trip to Japan. Though I could just be unlucky

I’ve used them/the Amex concierge for more mundane tasks that can be clearly defined (“call all of the stores near me that carry this brand of jacket and let me know which places have it in stock in my size”)

funny

Wow A1 - they either hated you or took it as a challenge and became employees of the month after achieving that task. I heard the amex concierge is way better than infinite. But I can't justify the cost. Bcg1 - local language is a big deal. If infinite can do searches in local language, it's good for me. Thanks

It’s fine but not really worth using for most tasks. Don’t get the card because of the concierge

A1 - how was the quality of that particular task?

I mean it was great - they emailed me a list of the stores that had the jacket in stock along with addresses and contact information and who they spoke to. I think that was Amex but I think visa’s version is supposed to be the same. It’s just tough coming up with good tasks for them. They need to be pretty transactional in nature in order for it to be worthwhile - don’t bother asking them for restaurant reservations since it’ll be faster in 99% if cases to do it yourself with opentable/yelp. For travel plans I prefer to do those myself. Realistically I only end up using them a couple times a year. IMO the Amex Platinum is the best and it’s especially helpful to be able to submit requests via email since you can make sure they have all the info they need

I’ve found them to be helpful for making reservations/other arrangements when traveling internationally, mainly because they have someone on staff who speaks the local language and they’ll deal with making the calls during local business hours so that I don’t have to. The more specific your instructions are the better.

Desi Consulting fam, 2 H1B related questions, would really appreciate any help. Please see the second comment below:

First posted this in the H1B bowl, but apparently there are fewer attorneys on there than I hoped. My client is filing a new petition to change employers, and his H-4 family members are stuck abroad because of COVID travel restrictions. Their H-4s don’t expire until 2021. If changing employers invalidates his current visa, can his family still get back into the US on their H-4s? Or do we have to wait for the consulates to open up to file for their extensions before they travel?

I am an in-house attorney and I have been following these bowls for at least a year. I am looking to connect with an attorney doing business or family immigration for the purpose of learning and doing overflow work when needed.

BIA Briefs: I’m an associate at an immigration law firm. I determined that immigration isn’t for me So I gave the managing partner my 2 weeks. He wants me to wrap up some BIA briefs before I leave however I’m reviewing the record for a lot these and I’m seeing that a lot of the arguments for Asylum, Withhold, and CAT are incomplete. How I’m going to argue that the IC abused its discretion or misapplied the law when we made a facially insufficient argument for relief?

United Platinum here - got an offer to pay ~$6k for upgrade to 1K. Thoughts on if it’s worth it? Already belong to Club (United Infinite) and have CLEAR credit through Amex Platinum. Still have 40 plus points from hitting Platinum last year. Unlikely to travel for business until late 2Q at earliest but have 2-3 transcontinental flights planned for summer and 1 transatlantic for fall. Maybe another 1-2 shorter trips this year as well. I imagine I’d use my extra plus points on all these.
