Bonvoy? That’s the best name they could come up with? I really don’t want to have to say Bonvoy points.
Should I get bonvoy points for a stay my company paid for directly? It was a $2,200 stay so I would like my points. So far I’ve only received points for my $20 bar tab. 🥴
Was super psyched to get that “Higher Elite Status” email from SPG telling me about this exciting new program where my platinum status is now garbage 🌈✨
Staying at both SPG+Marriot hotels coming up, and heard you could use #s from either program to stay at both. Which program is better to maximize points/elite status? Now gold in both from CCs.
Anyone ever have success with requesting AA to transfer a spouse’s separate reservation to your reservation so SO can reap elite status benefit (ie, early boarding/seat selection)?
Me wife and 9, 6, 4 year old boys looking for a great trip during the holidays. I know we are late to book. Looking for something warm. We are Hilton diamond and m/spg gold elite
If you achieve new platinum elite status on Marriott this week, how long does that last for?
Taking trip in November to London for couple days then France. I want to see vineyards hubby wants history and museums. Probably 5 days suggestions please. Would love to use bonvoy points too. Go!
Looking for recs for best bang for the Bonvoy points hotels outside the US? I found the Rayong Marriott for only 17,500 points (not sure if it’s nice in person) but that’s what prompted this curiosity
Using Marriott Bonvoy points for a stay for my parents: I have in the past used my SPG points and added my father’s name (by teaching out to the hotel after booking) to the reservation. It worked just fine and they even benefits fronm my Elite benefits (free breakfast). Just booked a stay for February for them and read the following “Hotel rewards e-certificates can only be requested by a Marriott Rewards member for a reservation in that member's own name. E-certificates will not be honored”
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.
Somehow ended up with Platinum Elite status after the Marriott/SPG merger when I was Silver. Just started consulting 5 months ago. Did the right thing and told the front desk and they let me keep it!🤗
Looking to leave Hilton honors. Which is the best alternative with a good spread of property?
Anyone flown United basic economy to Europe? Does Silver elite status help with the seat they assign you or are you still getting a crappy seat regardless?
Trying to figure out value of Bonvoy points- want to book hotel in Lisbon for 3 nights and it’s $315 or 75000 bonvoy points. Should I use points or cash?
With all the travel, it is easy to turn into one of those people who "get turned on by elite status". Then, every so often that status scores you an amazing upgrade in a beautiful city...
So since I still show 0 SPG/M points and should technically already be Silver Elite based on traveling the past month, will I get 10% points bonus for my stay this week or will I have to call?

I’ve been interviewing for a new job and am in midst of a few interviews where I have shared my salary expectations which is presumably low ($5k more than now). I’ve now been given a salary increase at my current company for $16k. I’m not happiest in my current job, but the money does help with the pain. When and how do I tell the companies I’m interviewing with that my expectations of salary have changed? Or is it worth missing out on the extra $11k to MAYBE be happier?

Temporary manager encourages me to work on weekends.
At the moment, my long term manager is on leave of absence for 3 months. We are currently trying to meet at deadline which has everyone stressed but my temp manager encourages me to work on weekends to meet the demand. Even though I’m already working 10hrs a day, this suggestion makes me draw the line.
Just because others choose to work on weekends, it doesn’t mean it should be expected.

My 7.5 month old isnt interested in solids (I tried BLW and purees). He gags easily - twice the gagging ended up with him vomiting a bit of breastmilk from earlier. He doesnt hold food on his own; when willing to take a taste, he leans his forward and I have to hold food up for him. He was never was into putting things in his mouth either such as toys, even though he has two teeth. As a FTM, I’m stressed out as it seems like all other babies love food and are mouthing (cont.)

I’m in tech and FAANG is more interesting for my career as well as preferred work culture. However, I’ve seen a lot about MBB here and kind of want to join just so I can say I was in MBB.
