Booked a trip to the Maldives for March 2021. Basically spending all my Marriott and AA points to get there. Should I go or postpone? Not worried about contracting covid as much as I am not being able to enjoy the trip to the fullest because of covid restrictions...
What’s the best credit card for points in the UK. I’m from the US and have the Chase Sapphire Reserve and the Marriott Amex
I have a Marriott free night certificate (up to 40k) expiring in January. Not using it, any offer for it?
Is it just me or Marriott is the only one not telling you explicitly when your status expires? I know it’s pretty straightforward (EDIT: and it’s in the policies) but everyone else (all airlines, Hyatt, Hertz...) shows it clearly in the app and when you log in on the website...
I need 100,000 Bonvoy points transferred. Doing 5 nights with points (5th night free). Any bidders?!?!
If I have the amex marriot bonvoy card already ($95AF), can I apply the $450 AF amex marriot bonvoy and downgrade it in a year, so I have two marriot bonvoy card
I haven’t booked a single room this year given the pandemic. Will I be able to retain my Marriott Bonvoy status ?
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.
If I checkout of a Marriott on 1/1/21 after having stayed a week, do the elite nights apply to my 2020 status or do they get added to 2021?
I have 85k Amex points. Is the 40%bonus to transfer to Marriott Rewards a good valuation? If not where can I get the most value?
Have 100 nights but not enough Spending. Was anyone able to successfully get Marriott to waive / decrease the spending requirement for ambassador status?
DC folks - thoughts on capital one vs Marriott for long-term growth in an analytics or product career?
I have 68k AMEX points and don’t want to pay to upgrade again as we’re not traveling and I’m hoping to exit before we do. Is best to transfer to Marriott for 86k pints (1.4x promotion). Or get a $525 apple gift card?
I have the Amex Bonvoy card ($95 annual fee) and am thinking of canceling it. Not really sure if it's worth keeping it considering how little the Marriott points are worth. One downside I see is that I have had this card since '97 (my first card) and I read that credit score considers average age of cards so am concerned that might take a hit. Thoughts on canceling? Secondly, what are the best cashback cards nowadays if I don't want to pay an annual fee? TIA!
Was browsing the Marriott app earlier for an upcoming trip and somehow found a system glitch showing a Courtyard at $17 per night. Booked it immediately. Had to share because I’m super excited 😂

Trying to book a family trip. What’s best way to get upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite at a Marriott property? Should I get a 1 bedroom and use a suite night upgrade or a regular room and request upgrade? I’m ambassador status if that helps.
Looking for a nice resort like hotel near San Diego/La Jolla to celebrate a babymoon (coming from LA). Any recs? I’m Bonvoy and saw the Coronado Island Marriott or the Pier South Resort Autograph Collection, but open to non-Bonvoy as well.
Best marriott property in Kauai Hawaii? Planning for a trip in October next year for 10th wedding anniversary. Thanks!
Planning on traveling with our new pup to the beach. I was planning on using points to stay at a local Marriott that is dog friendly. Is there anything else I should know about (E.g., Pet Fee, Leash or Bag to travel in hotel, etc.)? Thanks!
Anyone know if Marriott is still doing challenges right now? If so, anyone know what it is? I'm currently gold.
Staying in Buckhead St. Regis tonight - any suggestions for an upscale place for dinner other than Atlas or Chops?

Credit where credit is due —- nice job, Florida, Texas, and California. Fewer COVID deaths than I expected. Really puts into perspective how so much death could have been avoided if we were better prepared.

I’m considering moving to an overseas office (closer to home) in the same firm (target office also has large practice group for my practice area). Do you think it’s better to raise with current office partners first or to speak to target office’s partners first and gauge interest/fit?
