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 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).

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?
