Anyone been able to get Amex to waive the annual fee for Marriott Bongos Brilliance Card? Without travel it’s not worth the $450 fee. Hoping to get them to eliminate or reduce the fee for next year

Same experience with platinum. Worth a shot!

Possible to get it waived two months after paid? Or too late

Not sure; I’m in a state where they have to refund the rest of the year so the cost to them was clear and immediate, which may have incentivized them to help. I think it’s still worth a shot, though. Best bet is probably to politely threaten to just cancel even if you don’t get the fee back, since they’ll know that means they sacrifice future business from you.

Hi all! I currently live in LA but my wedding next year will be in my hometown of Chicago. I plan to go wedding dress shopping soon in both LA and Chicago. If I find my dream wedding dress in Chicago, I’d like to order it to be shipped to a store in LA so that I can have my fittings throughout the year without having to travel back to Chicago. However this also means I would have to fly to Chicago with my wedding dress. Has anyone been in this situation before? If so, how was the experience?

So I was hired exactly 2 months prior to this covid epidemic and as a result it has made learning how to be a lawyer quite a rollercoaster. I’m trying to learn how things are supposed to be but in all actuality, I’m having to be flexible and figure out how things are working at the moment...which is fine, but it’s hard to predict much of anything when you have nothing to compare it to. Being a law student and interning is nothing compared to practicing. Any advice!?
