Do you guys usually do mobile check in on the bonvoy app when on vacation? Is there a better chance of getting upgraded when you check in in person?
Did anyone here work at Marriott? Do they verify if you fill out an explore program authorization form?
Is Marriott doing this?
Torn on going all in on Marriott (more locations, often closer to offices and client sites) vs. Hyatt (better rewards program). Thoughts? What have you chosen?
Any other Australians feeling ripped off that we'll lose our Bonvoy status and suite nights on 1 Feb 2022 despite our borders having been closed for 18 months? I never got a chance to enjoy my perks for a non consulting trip..tried twice this year but both trips were cancelled when state borders closed! I sense an angry email to Bonvoy coming on (srsly though I feel so sad)! #firstworldproblems

Tried searching but nothing came up, despite knowing people have asked this before.. looking to go to Hawaii with very little time to plan. Unfamiliar with the islands and differences - looking for the best Marriott hotel where we can mostly beach, eat, venture for a hike or similiar activity. Any recs? Thanks!
Looking to book 3 nights (at a Marriott) online, but the first night appears to be booked/unavailable. Has anyone had luck calling a hotel directly when looking to book a stay where only partial days appear to be available online? Did it help if you had status with the hotel chain?
Thinking about getting the Marriott Brilliant card. Seems like a decent intro bonus and the 15 nights will help me get over the line to keeping my status for next year. Can anyone recommend / advise against?
Has anyone successfully used the Marriott Friends and Family code? Do they always check for a form on arrival?
I am 12 nights short of maintaining Marriott titanium status. I just got an offer for a Bonvoy Corporate Amex with a 15 night sign-up bonus and I also just started a new job that requires me to use a corporate Amex for all expenses. Usually I would pay $95 to enroll the company Amex in Member Rewards so I get the points. For this card the fee is $125. Will Amex let me convert my company card to Bonvoy Amex if I pay the $125?
Does Bonvoy not offer promos anymore? I’ve been seeing this screen for months and am now staying more in their properties
Traveling to Orlando with my 2 year old daughter in December. She is into princesses and Minnie Mouse. We are planning to go to magic kingdom and do mostly outdoor rides and experiences. Looking at hotels it’s around $150-200 to stay at a decent 4 star like a Hilton or Marriott. And $600+ to stay at a Disney hotel. I get that the transportation to the park might be a little easier but is it otherwise worth it to stay at a Disney hotel?
What AMEX card should I get? I have the CSP & Marriott Bonvoy Bold from Chase, and also Schwab Cashback, Delta Blue and Corporate Green AMEX cards (all no AF). Don’t qualify for the bonus with AMEX Gold, so won’t apply for it. I don’t need TSA Precheck benefit. Collecting Marriott points and have status already but open to Hilton too. Any ideas??? American Express
Any Marriott ambassador here? What’s the Marriott ambassador gift this year? I haven’t received any….
Short of 10 days to renew Marriott Platinum. Is it worth doing mattress run for 7-8 nights assuming I only have 2 nights of legitimate stays in future plan?
Have alums continued to use firm Bonvoy codes even after leaving? I’ve never been asked for proof of employer and know we’re allowed to use for personal travel, so wondering how bad it would be to keep using once I’ve left…
Just a few nights short of renewing my Marriott status for next year. Is it possible to book a room for a friend, but still earn points/nights on my Marriott account? I will not be joining them

If someone booked and paid for a Marriott stay for me, but has my name on the reservation—how can I get the points and status benefits (late checkout, etc)? Or is that out of the question…
Curious if / how people manage to keep their bonvoy status once no longer travelling weekly?
CSR now gives 10x for booking through the portal for hotels, but I’ve heard we won’t get Bonvoy points if we book through portal because it’s booked through 3rd party? Is that true? What about nights towards status?
Marriott provides you with $200 as compensation if elite benefits are not available. Does this include closed concierge lounges?

Watched a consultant lose his f’ng mind this week at a W hotel for his room being too close to elevator. I guarantee he will be getting that room next week too
PSA when a Westin tells you they’re taking extra precautions and super cleaning everything they mean they aren’t cleaning anything, not changing out dirty washcloths from previous guests, and removing

Using free rental coupons from National for a long weekend with my wife in Savannah/Hilton Head in a couple weeks -- what type of car should I reserve? Thinking convertible, but maybe premium car...
Purchased a basic AA ticket for my wife... those things are rough... very restricted. Only part of my status that benefits her is the priority boarding and I think the gate agent just let us have it..

Federal MBB🐠, were you given the opportunity to work any commercial projects your 1st year with the firm (if desired)? Had a final round years ago but friend advised me to stop the process given passion was retail. At the time switching practices was unheard of, have the times changed? Bridges never burned, debating re-kindle conversations...

PwC 🐟 if you leave the firm (quit or laid off) do you have to return the firm sponsored phone? Or can you keep the device itself and give up the number?
I worked/billed a ton last week and Monday and Tuesday this week, and then today I didn’t have any meetings or anything and just hit a brick wall - I slept until 10am and just dealt with accumulating non-billable stuff for almost all of the day. Now I feel terrible about it. How do you keep going? I feel awful about today and have such dread about all that I have to do tomorrow 😭 I’m in a new practice area and am super grateful for the work, but the learning curve is hard and I’m struggling!
Long shot - I come from a technical background in data and analytics. I have to work on my resume to make it more MBA like for applications. Any suggestions on how to proceed? any templates I can refer to? I can hire a admission consultant but doubt whether they will be able to articulate what I am looking for.
Should you consider MBA as experience while doing salary negotiation? Note:- HR always says MBA will just give a small advantage over other candidates. For HR, MBA is piece of paper which you get by studying 6 hrs

Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications
