    That area is going to be kind of tight. 2-2.5 k for 2 bhk rent . Rest of the cost depends on you , but don’t think you will save anything. Try to get another 10-15 k at least.

    Yes i am aware SAP , bt i am still going to join amazon as i am on H1B n amazon like other product based companies has the strongest immigration in the US at the least and about the TC they are giving it is definetely lowball bt cant help much due to the role i accepted

    Sorry to say, You'll hardly save anything with 95K household income in Portland. Try negotiating with Amazon. Never rely on EAD, that might end anytime.
