70,000 points is worse roughly $1400. You can get a credit card that gets you access to the Lounge for $450 a year...

D2 Definite overvaluing (AA miles are probably closer to 1.5cpp) but the recommendation is definitely correct. None of the mileage costs are worth it for lounge access for a legacy airline

70k for a year? If you fly regularly, and aren't racing for the plane most of the time, then sure.

I like it to have a quiet(er) place for calls while in transit so if you end up going once/week or so I think there's value

Nope

Oooooh @D2 very good point. Nvm! Haha thanks

What CC gives you admirals?

Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite™ MasterCard® - you get some MQM's and some other perks too for $450

Based off of the TPG post I read, it sounds like citi is the best deal while the AAdvantage card might make sense if I'm trying to max out my mileage accrual. If only there were EQMs involved past the sign on bonus!

When you’re on point to lead a call, and your manager is on the call, is it normal for them to constantly “add points”/interrupt you every minute? I’ve had a couple managers and noticed that every one of them that did this, didn’t add any value beyond what I was saying most of the time. On the contrary, when I had SMs or MDs on the call, they never interrupted.
