Cheaper to go to Dubai over thanksgiving than anywhere in Mexico / Caribbean / Hawaii from my home city. Is November a good time to visit / any must-dos / Marriott properties to stay in? Thank you!

I’ve been postponing my lounge renewal until there’s some semblance of regularity to travel. It just doesn’t seem worth the cost and bother for WiFi and a couple of mealy Saran-wrapped apples but I have a meeting an hour before my flight Monday and with people returning to travel I think it may finally make sense. How have the airline lounges been lately? I’m an AA traveler mostly so I’m particularly interested in Flagship/Admirals and oneworld lounges but interested across the board.

General musing - it seems like the vast majority of recs in here are for super expensive hotels and resorts (St Regis, etc). I work in consulting and make good money but can’t fathom spending $600+ a night on a hotel. Am I really in the minority or is it just that ppl staying at the Ritz want to show off?

How is spend at Marriott calculated? Just the nightly rate? Or the final bill that includes all sorts of tax?

Correct way to record time? I travel for my engagements but it seems if you’re traveling, it counts against your total billable time. I just think that’s weird. Am I doing this right?

Getting married next month and we’d like to have a joint checking account to cover shared expenses, however I don’t want to miss out on all the points I can rack up by consistently using my delta platinum card (spending thresholds = point bonuses, etc). Also my credit card bill will likely be a mix of shared and personal expenses, so how do couples go about this? Open to any advice. Thanks!

Question for you all: Left D to Company A for a 50% raise in TC and slated to start in <1 week. However, just got an offer at Company B for a 100% raise in TC compared to D, or 30% raise in TC compared to company A. Both firms do similar work but B provides a more solid comp package. Job duties would be relatively similar. Is the % jump worth burning the bridge? Would have chosen Company B if the offer came sooner but the % difference in A to B is at my [personal] 30% threshold. TIA!

Talking to a guy I met a while ago. Only have hung out once before to hook up. A year later he makes a reappearance. I’m taking it slow bc covid and bc I don’t want a one timer w him again. We did a couple FaceTime calls then went for a walk. He texted tonight asking to come over for wine. I jokingly asked if he was sure bc I didn’t see him for a year last time we did that. Dodged it this time, but how do you ladies hold off on sex? Not looking to have a sit down talk tho
