Sitting at the hotel bar. Over hearing a boomer flash his United gold and Marriott platinum status to a millennial women. Debating if I should call his status and raise him 1k and ambassador elite? 🤔
Guy at the bar just called global services and got a first class upgrade for an army captain also sitting at the bar (who was put on a 14 hour delayed flight).
Bonvoy Ambassador and lifetime titanium, have had enough with no perks whatsoever out of this and want to move to Hyatt ... what is the best way to get a status match?
I have booked United international flight for my parents as their visa is expiring and they need to leave US this month. They are seniors with health conditions and I am looking for upgrade options. PM me if you can help me to upgrade their flight using United PlusPoints. Thanks!
Anyone had any luck canceling delta flights? Can’t get ahold of customer service and can’t seem to find a way to cancel online / in the app. Booked with Skymiles
Just had a dream that my plane crashed and instead of suing I asked for global services for lifetime. I think it’s time I leave this bowl until I become rational again
New United status qualifying rules for 2020. It’s by dollars not miles... should really benefit most consultants given the high price of business trip airfare. Bottom line.. spend $24k to get 1K https://mileageplusupdates.com/mileageplus/english/qualification
4500 miles short of making it to United gold. Should I just buy the miles to make it by end of year?
Just called AA as I was just under the threshold for platinum pro and they made an exception and honored my upgrade. No mileage run, no getting tossed in Mexico jail for a mileage run.
Booked flights for rest of the year and realized I’d be 484 PQM or 1.5 PQS short of United 1K. Changed one set of flights from one to two stops and still 38 PQM or 0.5 PQS short🤦♂️ Hacks? Thanks!
United global services - anyone know what the ROM spend is to qualify this year? Just over 40k now and can prob rack up 20k+ in the next month so weighing if I go status or better schedule flights
Worth it to spend 40mins in the car vs 20 to fly your airline of choice with top tier? Or switch airlines and status match to the closer airline/airport? (1K on UA at EWR 40min vs Delta at LGA 20min)
I’m 4,613 PQM away from United 1K and am wondering if it’s worth the ~$900 I’d have to spend. My deciding factor is the upgrade for international flights. Any insight into how these are used?
Our god has spoken...Ed Bastian leading the industry at Delta and as usual AA and UA will surely follow. Current 2020 status to be extended through 2021, all MQM roll over.
United Platinum Upgrades: Flying Denver to Boston and I’m typically ~20-30 on the upgrade list. What gives? Is it always this impossible to get upgraded? I matched plat from Delta when I moved to Den.
Mileage run booked! To Detroit, to check out the Henry Ford Museum and ford factory tour. Restaurant suggestions anyone?
Have to take client call at EWR. I’m United Global Services, have Priority Pass, and a United Transcon First Class ticket. Where’s best place to take with lounge access, etc.? Thanks Fish.
I switched from American to Delta this year and earned 300k Delta MQM, will 175k of those rollover, and I will just have to meet the spend requirement next year?
Just got confirmed renewal of my United 1K status despite not meeting targets by emailing in my baby’s birth certificate from taking mat leave! I’m shocked and appreciative!
United just extended my global services status to next year. Appreciate the effort from them, bit I just don’t think I will fly anymore (unless it’s for vacation next year)...
Doing a short mileage run next month in Chicago, it’s a solo trip. Any tips and recs while I’m there? It’s a weekend
Anybody willing to sell united miles? Looking for 180k. Please bame your price here and I’ll dm you. Need urgently
Delta has sent me an offer to open a Skymiles platinum AmEx and get 80K bonus miles. Annual fee $195. Worth it? (I already have five credit cards none have fees tho.)
Flight got canceled earlier this evening because of a mechanical issue. United Gold (with 16k spend, so I feel like I have a case for 1k), how many miles should I ask for? And how (email, phone call)?
United Global Services officially owns me now. Got me to the plane when my inbound flight landed after the door was closed on connection.
Any thoughts around British Airways Club World Class (aka Business Class)? It is the cheaper option on my route but have never used it.
If I have status with American Airlines, but book the basic economy, will I still be able to board in group 3?
🐟 fam! I have a connection of about 40 minutes at Denver airport. Will I make it? Flying United for both legs if that helps.
To the person raising concerns on Delta's inability to accurately show delays - I'm on board. At gate, plane "leaves" in 17 min but isn't even at gate; yet Delta still is calling it on time... 😡
Did they shrink economy sits on the latest Delta planes? I literally just had an inch or legroom and i am not a tall guy...
Anybody not getting their boarding passes for Delta? Checked in three times with my number and email to receive the pass, but nothing so far
What are your thoughts on southwest assurance (Texas) raises this year? Same as last year? Better? Worse?
Flying Delta, obviously delayed; in a boot so can't walk much and have to settle for Wendy's coffee. Fucking Monday's.
If you have the membership can you access the United Club for your final airport? Not arrivals lounge, just regular club Getting in 2 hours sooner than my friend.
Getting frustrated with AA. Home base @ Chicago. Anyone shifted over to Delta? Yay or nay and why?
Shameless request (I'm not at McK anymore): traveling on vacation in Jan on Delta. Could use a couple drink vouchers. Please help. Signed, Tackey request but I'm traveling with my overbearing mom
I know having a dog in this career is nearly impossible without hiring a sitter. But are cats ideal? I never had pets as a kid and now I want one.

Hi all! I just wanted to share my experience with the CPA exam and how I prepped in hope that it helps some of you. I just found out that I passed my last exam yesterday and I’m now in the process of applying for licensure. I took REG and passed with a 75 about two years ago now. I also took the other 3 around the same time and failed all of them. I tried to fit them all into a semester but that wasn’t realistic for me. Fast forward a year later after I got out of PA and went into industry cont.
What should you do if you have a persistent cough for 3+ weeks? Would clients be put off by someone like that, even if it isn't catching? Should you stay remote as much as possible in this case?
Realized I won’t make SPG gold elite by the end of the year. Will I have to start over again in 2019 with a balance of 0 or will I still have my 23 nights balance to forward with?
Hello 🐠, I’m building a site where you can find travel recommendations from your friends and family! It seems like I’m not the only one who asks around for word of mouth suggestions (looking at the posts on this bowl 🙂). With all of the travelling that we do (pre/post covid) I know you all have great recommendations from personal, flex, and work travel. It’ll be launching soon so please sign up if sounds like something you’d use - I’d also love to get your thoughts! www.travoshare.com
I’m a dual citizen (US and country in Middle East). Came here as a refugee in teens and now 3 years at a big-4. How helpful in my application is this info? What weight does it hold? Asking this because my GMAT is holding me down, due to low verbal (650), and wanted to know if two points balance each other out. Targeting Darden, LBS, Booth, Yale, Berkeley. More details below...
if I leave before my signing bonus contract is up, do I pay back the pre-tax or post-tax amount? My contract doesn't specify, and with taxes I only got 55% of the total, so it's a big difference
Hi All 👋🏾 I was laid off. I started at SR as a contractor (now @ Mosaic) and have 8 yrs in ecomm/digital. Looking for role leads and new connections in the space. ☀️
Girls, I’m biting the bullet and buying a Burberry trench coat. I quit my B4 job and got into an amazing company, and this my reward to myself. Any advice with sizing for the Sandringham model?

How much time do you all spend on writing an (external) email? Ever since starting to track my time, I've been blown away to realize that I often spend ~30 minutes on an email to a client.
CSR annual fees increased to $550 this year, do the additional benefits still make it a must-have card?
