I mean: charge them half of the actual points value and tee them up for the first round of drinks. Arbitraging points to make money off friends is janky...

Going with a friend, so if this is good deal may do cash and points and save the points for another trip. They will pay half of retail price for room, so makin $$$

Either redemption is good for the value.

Using 2.5 cpp - Cash + points = $260/night + tax - All points = $300/night usually tax-free - Cash = $367/night + tax Tax is prob 15% on the cash portion of combo rate which makes the comparison 285 v 300. Better value with cash + points (often the case). Might be worth doing all points if you have a bunch (saves actual cash and de-risks futures devaluations)

When I looked it up it was like $800 a night? Seasonality?

Looking at may/June which I think is low season?

That’s exactly what I am doing. Half of “retail” total costs of stay with taxes and fees.

And yes DD1 free for me!

OP, just stayed there about 6 months ago on my honymoon. We had excruciatingly loud construction directly above our room wake us up at 7/8 AM for 3 of 5 mornings, despite repeated assurances that they would take care of the issue. If you do go, make sure to ask for a room away from the construction if its still going on

Ladies, I had a breakthrough with my boyfriend and I am so proud. I have encouraged him to go to therapy for years. He grew up with a father who is emotionally abusive. He felt like he didn’t need to go because he could just “handle it” (part of the toxic culture he was raised in) so I stopped pushing. Yesterday he told me he was going to therapy to try it out, I said okay, and made him a coffee to go. He came home, hugged me, cried, and read me a list of things he was working on. 🥺💛

I feel like the Senior manager has to redo all (or a lot) of my work. I’ll suggest something, they’ll modify or reject it and then make a decision. Then I’ll execute on that decision and I didn’t have the best idea and it’ll be tweaked again or something comes up and the approach didn’t actually work based on th support. I’m an A2 up for promotion so I should be performing like a new senior, but I feel like it’s clear that I’m not close. For more context, it’s a first year audit so maybe that...
