Ambassador Elite Status - worth it? I had it years ago but never really used it. And how/when does the intro happen?

Ambassador level gets Your24 which means you can check-in at any time. If you’re flying a weird schedule or have an international flight that lands at 4AM, you wouldn’t have to book an extra night. Of course, a room still has to be ready, but you can communicate prior to arrival to ensure that happens.

Only things I ever used the Ambassador for were: (1) Staffed on long term out of town project, ask Ambassador to book every M-Th at local hotel for next 6 months. Make them sit there for 30 minutes and click, click, click.

(2) Vacation with family, ask for goodies on arrival. Usually would get a bottle of wine, some fruit, something like that. And maybe a room upgrade.

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”

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?
