I have a boneheaded question I’m pretty sure I know the answer to. My partner can’t use my Hilton Honors account for an upcoming stay he is going to book, right? He doesn’t need my discount or anything - was just hoping that he could get my diamond benefits.
I have 315k Marriott Bonvoy points and a couple of free nights in addition. What is the best bang for my buck in terms of locations / experiences I could get? I am super flexible on timing and location, just want the best experience. Any thoughts?

Would a silver elite status on Marriott Bonvoy give one privileges to request a 5pm checkout ? I used to be able to do that with spg platinum.
Can anyone from BCG confirm this ridiculousness that you’re all receiving free Bonvoy points now?! Boston Consulting Group
Looking for suggestions on weekend trips with a small dog. Bonus if I can use bonvoy points for hotels 🙂

FYI Green Corporate Amex Cards include a free silver level membership with Hilton Honors.
Currently working on plan C of a honeymoon as we don’t expect to be able to go Europe in June/July as hoped. Plan A and B were variations of Italy (relax) and Spain (mountain biking). Hoping to use bonvoy points. Any US centered suggestions? Maybe refocusing on golf/warmth/spa/food now.
Is anyone looking to sell some bonvoy points?
Any of you book a nice vacation a few months out? I have lots of Bonvoy points and trying to book some international properties (Bali etc) while rates are low.. any ideas for good deals still
How do I get cash for bonvoy points?
Still hoping to purchase Hilton Honors points! Ideally looking for 150k, but fewer will help as well. Hmu if you have some to sell!
My fellow road warrior 🐠, I have 110K Hilton points and want to open Hilton honors card ($95 annual fee) that will get me to 250K points (once I spend $2K in first 3 months). Already have 6-7 credit cards and no outstanding balances. Doing it to book hotel travel with family later this year. Is it worth it to pay $100/year? What will 250K get me? TIA
I was a loyal Amex SPG cardholder that migrated to Amex Bonvoy ($450 annual fee - which is really $150 after the $300 Marriott spend credit) ... we charge all personal expenses to this card (over $75K/yr). I feel that Bonvoy Platinum Elite status and a free night per year are nice, but are there better cards that have better rewards? Our other card is Costco Visa (for Costco purchases or for places that don’t accept Amex).
Anyone selling 10k bonvoy points? I will pay $75
I need 100,000 Bonvoy points transferred. Doing 5 nights with points (5th night free). Any bidders?!?!
Need 40K Bonvoy points. DM if interested :)
Do we loose all the Marriott bonvoy points if I close my chase Marriott credit card ? Don’t see the need to pay $95 when there is no travel for the foreseeable future.
My cousins, their families, and I are all planning a quick trip to the mountains. Because of the way availability for our Airbnb worked out, we have to get a hotel the first night. All my cousins and their spouses decided to opt for a cheaper Best Western hotel while I have Bonvoy points I want to use...and also don’t want to stay in a BW. They’re upset with me bc I’m staying somewhere different....For that one night. Am I wrong to choose Marriott bc it’s more convenient for me?
Has anyone rented out a space at a Marriott hotel for an event? Aren’t you supposed to get Bonvoy points based on the amount you spend?
Booking a local weekend trip with the wife and I have an option to spend 100k Bonvoy points for 2 nights or use 50k + 1 free night award up 50k. Since my free night expires mid-next year, I should go ahead and use that first before using my points right? Hotel is 50k a night/category 6.
What’s the min $/night room you’d book using Hilton and Bonvoy points respectively to get the most value?
Short 8,000 bonvoy points for a quick getaway, any ideas on quickly earning or should I buy them? Anyone used the Points Advance option before? TIA!
I have 71 bonvoy nights accumulated. Should I just book the cheapest room I can find for 3 nights and hit 75?
Any idea where I can find Hilton confirmation number on my hotel.com booking ? It was super cheap but I’ll be upgraded if I add my Hilton honors account.
Does anyone have creative ways that they are capitalizing on outside sales perks such as: mileage, hotel points, credit card points, etc.? So far my solutions are high mpg vehicle to maximize profit on the 57 cent per mile standard and the American Express Hilton Honors credit card to gain points after the company reimbursement.
Is there any way to retain Titanium Elite status at Marriott even though we aren’t traveling as much this year? I’m trying to hit that lifetime!
Pretty sure my hair falls out from the horrible Sheraton shampoo and conditioner! Ugh nothing worse
Staying at Westin O'Hare - hotel is packed... I begin to worry about gym being over utilized.... Find out it's a Star Trek convention... No longer worried about the gym being full.
Any word on SPG Q2 promo?
50k SPG points vs. $775? What would u pick?
The hotel I'm staying at has a membership. Costs~$2K. And for the next 5 years I get unlimited stays at all their partners including Hilton& Sheraton and a bunch of other 4-5 star hotels for $219/week
Platinum elites members with four legged companions... have you found a good way around Marriott's pet fees for personal travel/stays?
PSA: If you're Platinum with SPG you can get diamond/VIP at Harrah's/Caesars and all of their properties.
Serious question: Sheraton cancelled my reservation and I was stranded for a night last night. Called CS and my useless ambassador and they cant help and “sorry”. How do I escalate this?
Just watched Sully, did Marriott sponsor that movie?
Good but cheapish hotels in London? Prefer to use SPG. Need to book for 10 days. Any good areas for Air BNB. TIA!
I have a free night with marriott (from amex card). Given we are not traveling far before this expires, what's a good hotel for a quick trip from nyc?
I just redeemed 232k Marriott points for $.0057. Should I have just paid in cash? I feel like I got decent value because I don’t really use my hotel points and see no occasion to do so anytime soon.... but at the same time, the websites say I’m messing up....
Hilton vs. Marriott Currently diamond- considering switching at beginning of new year to Marriott. Pros/cons?
Ladies, I check in to a Hilton in Stockholm today at the same time as my male colleague. He’s gold and I’m diamond. He gets upgraded from asking to a suite and I get” upgraded “ from a king to a twin
Will we have to proactively transfer our SPG points over, or will it be done automatically at the 1:3 rate?
SPG/Marriott Q: Have last weeks nights been posted for you yet? I usually get the nights (and points) Friday after checking out on Thursday, but nothing has come through yet for last week

Has anyone filed for H1b extension recently under premium and heard back? Starting to get really nervous now. It was filed under premium on March 9. I know it’s just been a week but my anxiety is running very high rn. Any insights appreciated.
Given the immigration climate, would you guys recommend changing offices and going through an H1B amendment? I hear folks getting RFEs on that as well.
Going through interviews and struggling a lot with social anxiety and feeling awkward. In final rounds at a company where the next interview will be strongly focused on understanding personality and fit. Doing great on content but really can’t connect with people, especially over Zoom. Being a strong introvert doesn’t help either. Any recommendations on things you would do to connect beyond job related Q&A? Also, any tips to control nerves during the interview?
Ey peeps , what's the difference between the role assistant director and manager in EY? Both same hierarchy wise?
What does your return to office plan look like? We’re thinking something like Tues-Thurs in-person, everyone remote M & F and flexibility whether you come in those 3 days. Thanks!

So I'm sick hanging out at my aunts place and she's trying to explain to a friend what my job is because I have absolutely no voice. She is so flustered trying to explain consulting and data science.
Due to Covid, how much easier do you think R3 this cycle will be? I was planning R1 this fall, but open to R3 now if the odds are better. Already have my gmat and school research done.
