Worth it to pay the 550/year for the Amex corporate platinum once travel resumes? Looks like all the point multipliers are stripped compared to the normal platinum so my initial thought is it’s not worth it

IMO it’s worth it once travel resumes. Till then it’s completely worthless

Why not just get platinum Amex for personal use since no point multiplier on corporate anyways

That’s what I was thinking but I already have the CSR for points

Right now, I am receiving significant non-travel discounts using my Amex Platinum. Streaming subscription discount: $10 per month Mobile phone payment discount: $20 per month Various small business discounts: $5 each There are many other discounts. It still pays for itself, even in COVID shutdown.

I work for MBB and have been told travel will resume for me once possible so it’s still relevant. Appreciate the input though

Hey everyone, so my sister and her boyfriend have both gained about 60-70 pounds since COVID started. I’m getting very concerned for them and I’ve seen firsthand how they’re developed awful eating and drinking habits and they hardly ever exercise. I’m very concerned for them, but I have no idea how to talk about it with them and not make them angry or hurt. Any advice on how to have this difficult conversation?
