Anyone have issues booking for another person using their Marriott Free Night Certificate? The booking agent told me it was non-transferable.

Nope. Just book online using points like it’s me. Then call the hotel directly after confirmation email and change name on reservation. Saying it’s a gift or something. They usually get treated to my Status level too.

Yeah. Probably ok. Just book like it’s you and call front desk

Just used it for my dad. Called and added his name to the reservation. No problem at all

Ah gotcha I'm not using points though. This is a free night I got from the Fall MegaBonus promo. I should be fine regardless right?

Ok awesome! I was able to book a JW Marriott though. Do you think I'll run into an issue with a nicer hotel?

Do recruiters secretly make fun of you/don’t believe your current salary when you ask for “too much”. Most my interviews (even pre-covid) involved the recruiter telling me that is not within their budget. Just for reference I have 2 YOE in Product Management asking for $115k

Likely switching big 4 firms as a manager shortly and it has me thinking about independence issues. I assume that a number of securities that are green lighted at KPMG will be restricted at my new firm and I’ll be required to sell them. I’d rather not sell as most of them have large unrealized gains. I know independence is largely self reported, but they do do audits. How do they detect unreported brokerage accounts? Any one have experience?
