Does anyone do those 90 minute seminar things for discounted hotel stays? Getting a Marriott promo and curious

I know people who go to the timeshare info sessions for the free weekend at Disney. They say it’s totally worth it, but you have to stay a united front. Nod politely, and then when they pull out the papers say thanks so much but you are not signing up for anything. Be firm and clear and then go enjoy Disney.

Are you taking about the timeshares in Orlando, Cancun and Hawaii? Yes, worth it but your status doesn’t get you anything, you don’t earn points (outside of what they are giving you for the promo) or night credits.

Since starting a month ago,I’ve been spending between 20-30 on carry out every night and have not been expensing tip. What is a reasonable expense amt?
