Do you tip room service if a 20% service charge is already included? I never know if I should give extra or not

No. Unless they did something extra...


Pretty sure you can fight a service charge

The service charge = mandatory tip.

Not all of that service charge goes to the person bringing you food.. So I do tip extra to round it out for them

Absolutely not

I always ask if the charge goes to them and add or don't accordingly

Amex gold or chase Sapphire preferred? I need a card for international travel to avoid foreign exchange fees. Please note, that I'll receive a $150 credit towards the Amex annual fee due to having a corp card. I'd you my capital one checking, but no rewards/benefits there.

Kind of a weird question, but if you have status at hotels is there any way you could finagle either free or discounted multi-day parking for hotels near an airport? Don't want to have to rely on ride sharing from my home if there is a stronger likelihood of rides near a hotel airport parking space. I am speculating that it still turns out cheaper than hotel parking. This is not for work so I wouldn't be able to expense it.


Just enrolled in the delta status match. Anyone do this? Any tips on fastest way to meet the requirements? I have 3 months to get 12,500 MQMs and $1,500 MQDs.

Any difference pro/con booking personal trip directly on Delta vs AmexTravel? My understanding is I get the 5x Amex points regardless.
