Now with the Marriott merger, should I get one of the Marriott credit cards? I currently use my CSR for everything. Looking to see what some of your strategies are for travel cards
decided to travel back home biweekly to avoid excessive flight delay/cancellation, and here my delta flight is delayed again #thanksDelta #Knowit
Need recs on gift for a good friend 33M works for United, so always traveling (and very light), not at all flashy very much into environment and sustainability. Hilton/Igh member.
We want to go to Thailand with our 1 year old in Nov; however, we have been told we are crazy multiple times. We would hire nannies once there, but obviously it’s a bit scary with COVID (though when we mentioned the trip to our pediatrician, he seemed more concerned about the 20+ hour travel time. We are flying business, if that helps). Could anyone provide perspective on how you might consider whether to cancel? Should we do something else (e.g. Europe, Mexico, etc.). The trip is 2+ weeks long
Anyone traveling Delta before June 11? If yes? Have a couple of drink vouchers for you....
applied for passport renewal at SFO consulate. VFS guys said you filled in wrong and we are sending the application back, and to refile again correctly. Got email saying it has been dispatched. However, I haven’t received the passport back till now. It’s been 10 days. I have tried following up through multiple channels. No response till now. I need to travel to india next week. any suggestions on how I can get it resolved? Their customer care phone line is charging 2.5$/min and are of no help!
How do I get Hilton to match my Marriott platinum elite status? I was just bounced around to like 4 different contacts and got nowhere
Hilton just sent an email saying they’re extending everyone’s status until March 2022. How likely will the rest of hotel & airline chains follow suit?
[Request] if anyones feeling generous and has expiring United Club passes, one of my good friends is going on her honeymoon Monday. I’ve already upgraded them to first class (domestic) but would like to get them lounge access before too. I’ve got one pass but would need another one for her partner. Anyone have an extra they could spare?
Sorry 🐠know it has been asked but don’t find it. How to decide whether to redeem bonvoy/Marriott points or pay the night (personal travel)? What is the value you should seek to in Cents per point? Tia
Long time United flyer. Moving down to Raleigh. American or Delta? I like to use my miles for international trips. Also any challengers I can do, or thoughts on getting status fast?
Just met Bill Gates at the Marriott lounge....
Woke up to 30 fishbowl and cnn alerts about Delta's shitshow. Got worried and then realized I'm federal and not leaving DC. And then went back to sleep.
Has anyone stayed at the Millennium Hilton NY One UN Plaza? Looking for a hotel with good views!
Does anyone actually LIKE united airlines?! 6 hour cross country flight and only economy plus gets served a meal? BISH, I don't even want your crappy "chicken or pasta" I just want the right to say no
Delta should update their flight statuses from "on time" so we don't show up at the airport to find out were delayed hours. Consultants need sleep, we're people too
FTM - I’m just curious on how some of your maternity leave is set up. I received short term disability pay for 6 weeks and then paid from my job for 6 - they offered additional bonding time, but unpaid. The paid portion came from my “sick time.” I wasn’t sick, I was caring for and bonding with my son. That’s been bothering me since I returned. Now I don’t have any sick leave and any last minute time that I need to take is unpaid. Other countries give moms the entire year, 100% paid 🥴
For those of you with immediate family members who are at high risk, how are you doing? I find myself being very anxious and stressed about my father getting sick.
I’m currently on PIP b/c low utilization and “Performance trends” during my first pregnancy. I’m pregnant again, I was not promoted due to PIP, does that mean I won’t be eligible for paid mat. leave?
Has anybody changed locations from SF or NY to a Lower COL city like Chicago during COVID (specifically in tech) and had their salary adjusted down? If so, how much was the decrease?
MBB - I’m a current senior graduating from a top public school, and I am debating on whether to accept an offer to a masters (non mba) to an Ivy League. One of the factors into my decision is what is the propensity that the resume gets pulled for on campus mbb recruiting, given that undergrads are probably applying as well? I have big brand internships already, and my undergrad school probably scores a 2/3 for brand name. Will recruiting teams put more emphasis on your latest or 1st degree?

Have a friend telling me to get in on the baby dinos NFT drop at 2pm. I’ve never invested in an NFT but I do know what NFTs are. What should I be considering before I make my decision?
Until the salary bowl has a search function...anyone care to share Salary/Sex/Location, and title if it’s what you’re using to post.
A pharma client requires a urine drug test. Will my ADHD meds make me test "positive"? If so, is there a chance to provide my prescription to a medical officer to clarify? (cont)
Any Accenture 🐠 use the domestic partnership benefits for their partner? Apparently you don't have to be married to use it so I want to get my partner benefits but the process is confusing. Anyone...

What did you do/wish you had done to prep for baby #2s arrival? Feel like we did a lot with #1 and now have a month to go for #2, but I feel so unprepared for some reason.
