Stay 3 more nights

You’re talking to the right guy.... Be friend with the front desk agent, and be sure to tip behind the scene. Have him/her put your spg# on those reservations that don’t have memberships with SPG. (Those that basically stay without caring for the points, or just never registered) Thank me later... I achieved 100+ nights, 100k points, 50+ stays within 3 months.

E2, that’s fraud.

If someone else on your project has it too, trade back and forth getting breakfast or points and just ask for extra breakfast cards for your 'guest’

Duh. Most cost effective ?

Where do you live? Just find a few low rent locations in your area (near the airport is usually good) and book the stays. You don’t have to sleep there.

I would just call them and ask nicely for the status. Mention all the nights you plan to stay next year.

Agree with D1. Next question

Check in and out every day next week

There is a platinum status challenge now. if you stay 18 nights from 11/1/2017-1/31/2018, you will get platinum. I just got mine.

Having to call Marriott to apply a suite night award to an SPG hotel on a reservation you made before the merger and combining accounts proves to you how much is still SO WRONG with this merger.

Miles / points balances: Are you carrying large balances? What’s your mitigation plan to move those balances in case of further devaluations?

I’ve always been an earn & burn guy, but leaning towards cashing a lot of them out (or transferring them to linked accounts to “cash” out). E.g.- moving Marriott points to AMEX member rewards.

How much vegetables do you all manage to consume a week? I realized my weekly intake maybe low, but I can't really think of ways to increase it. I usually end up consuming a pound of spinach, 1 broccoli, 3-4 carrots, and maybe 200 grams of other vegetables. Plus tomatoes and onions as base for curries.
This seems pretty low, but can't really think of ways to increase my intake with a predominantly Indian diet.
