Say what you will about Marriott, but my experiences at the overseas Marriott have been phenomenal. Just came back from Bangkok, 25000 points for a 5 star hotel and it was simply amazing.
Anyone fly out of LAX this week? How was security? Got a message from United that security is slow at LAX right now, but I got the same one for ORD and it wasn’t accurate
Any tips for flying with a guitar in a hard case? I have United 1K for reference, but I’ve never done this before. I’ll check United’s site for what I have to do to check this in but any wisdom/advice on traveling with a guitar is appreciated
Just started working, best credit card for travel points? Chase sapphire reserves $450 yearly fee is out of my budget
Any Myrtle Beach, SC hotel recs? Me, wife, 3yo and 5yo. Beach front and kid water amenities a must. Reading reviews are driving me crazy... lots of great reviews mixed in with a few horror stories
First time on United for a few years - delta diamond but just needed a direct flight this morning. Holy cow why do people fly United at all?
No more flight check ins required! Auto check in 24 hours before the flight. Good job delta
Got bumped down from first class upgrade to delta comfort at the gate. Has this happened to anyone?
My Marriott ambassador finally reached out and oh how nice she was! First time achieving this status
Does Alaska Airlines have a status challenge? Need to fly with them for a few weeks - no other flight options.
I can’t find my driver license and have a flight this evening. Would a Costco membership card work as ID for a domestic flight?
Delta Sky Club at SEA 😍
I inherited several American Gold Eagle coins and have no idea what to do with them. Sell them? Keep them? If I do decide to sell, what is the process for that and how do I get the best return?
Going to end up with ~99K EQM but will have over 15k in spend. Anyone have experience getting American to still give Exec Platinum?
This week's announcements suck for SPG and AA loyal travelers. 2016: SPG is going away and AAdvantage program is changing for the worst.
I tell myself that I've come to terms with my husband not being very thoughtful or helpful around the house. But I was sick last weekend and he didn't even unload the dishwasher or put away the laundry I'd already done, and when I asked him to help me by getting me drinks and stuff, he would tell me 'in a minute' because he was on his phone, and then he'd get to it eventually or forget. It's like, can you pretend to care just a little?
Is timing your pregnancy to miss busy season on maternity leave considered rude or an unspoken "dont"?

Received an offer for digital strategy analyst at a media company. Reports to EVP. Dream is to exit into M&E digital strategy so this lines up perfectly. On the other hand, I’m also up for early promo to senior associate (feeling 50/50 about my case) and am currently on a media project rn (don’t want to burn the bridge). Offer is looking for someone to start ASAP...would it look bad to take an offer so close to year end? ~1.5 YOE
Been testing Blockfolio 2.0. New UI is sick, plus there’s a lot of new small features that I think will help come tax season. In the meantime show this article some love by giving it the claps. https://blog.blockfolio.com/announcing-blockfolios-11-5m-series-a-financing-round-a1310f6aeebb
I billed over 2300 hours last year (Req. is 1850). During my review I was told verbally that I would be receiving a bonus but firm has not provided any info re amount/distribution. Red flag?
I need a bit of reassurance. My SO is ready (in the very near future) for a kiddo. I am ready for a kiddo... but... I have a very large fear of actual pregnancy- things going wrong, feeling sick (morning sickness, exhaustion, etc and affecting my work performance), my body never being the same (vain but true), and doing something wrong and affecting baby. How do I calm my nerves?
Just left EY after 3 years! Major bump in pay $99k->$145k plus stock incentives and a full time remote position. Started as a staff and ended as a senior with 1 year of experience. The new company is rapidly expanding so let me know if you need a referral!
Home base is PHL, AA has most of the non-stops but the AA “experience” is leaving a LOT to be desired. Have status with them, no where else. Options?
How are annual hikes in PayPal India? How many refreshers will be given every year ? How 50% equity in annual bonus will be paid and is there any vesting period?

I am currently on bench. 2 ex-Ms who I like very much (they don’t know each other) have kinda put dibs on me for Jan staffing. This wasn’t really done with my consent. How do I navigate turning them down?
Trying to determine if I’m off-base: 9ish yrs of exp (7 + 2 post MBA). Focus in healthcare strat and org change/transformation — when folks call I’ve been asking for $175K base but the roles have topped out at $150K base. These are director level roles in industry and health tech. Is $175K too high? I’m currently at a T2 strat firm…
