You need better tax planning

I would not be so sure about the first part.

So my question still begs,   What are you guys estimating TPG makes a year off referrals?
This is like the Jackie Mason bit. (paraphrasing) "All the Jews are in the audience thinking 'it's just a one man show, there's no orchestra or anything. There are 2500 seats, $150 a ticket. He's gotta be making at least a quarter of a million per show'"

Not entirely sure why TPG needs someone who led Yahoo Finance and Dow Jones Online.
Also not entirely sure why he needs 100+ employees...
Drew's hiring is more questionable to me.

TPG makes money by drawing in n00bs that aren't yet impacted by 5/24. But are they going to care about fancy flowcharts about which region is stronger for obscure excursionist perks?

Well, is the American consumer smart? They say they are smarter them ever but just how stupid were they in the first place?

N000bs will pay [TBD] if their so called trusted cc blog tells them.

If someone will stupidly sign up for a CC based off his article, why would they not pay a few dollars a month for the must info?

In no time every article will mention his app.

TPG calling the Business Green a 150K point signup bonus may just be the worst clickbait I've ever seen.

Maybe call CSR as having a 3MM point bonus (based on $1MM in travel spend)?

To be fair, nothing in the title says anything about any SUB.

"Amex Business Green Card now offering up to 150,000 points in the first 3 months"

but yea, terrible ''bonus"

I would not call it a bonus.

And TPG has jumped the shark. Reviewer pays $142 for E+, doesn't sit in E+, and complains about E- comfort and service.
Amateur hour.
