FTW: W Hotel in Chicago gives free equinox access during visit. Now I only need time for the gym.
Why do the housekeepers close the drain to the tub everyday? I don't get it, no matter what you have to let the water warm up, and secondly who would take a bath in a hotel bathtub? ewww!
Got a message saying I could change my United flight with no change fee because of an itinerary change. I checked and there are fully refundable rates I could change to (current rate is not fully refundable). Couldn't I change it to a fully refundable rate then... Get a full refund? What's the catch? Is it that normally you would pay $200 change fee to go to a fully refundable fare? In that case it still seems better than losing your entire fare in the case you really can't make a flight.
Anyone else feel odd when separated from their spouse post-pandemic? I have always been wildly independent - solo travel, full life, separate friends - but after being in the same space nonstop during the pandemic, I find it so hard to leave him for work or personal travel.

I just barely started at my firm and got staffed on a project which requires travel. My firm only allows me to expense hotels on a personal card, everything else goes on the corporate Amex. I’ve had a venture one card for 2 years now but am thinking about getting the chase sapphire reserve. Kind of lost here - any advice?
For those traveling through CLT Thursday night, what are your plans? Rebook to earlier flight or just hope Florence doesn’t impact your regular flight?

Hey Big 4, has PWC, EY, and Deloitte committed to a "no travel until Jan 1" comment yet?
If you have a negative balance on your credit card (overpay every month) and use it until you go back to zero, do you still earn points/ cash rewards on your usage. Context: I am trying to see if I can essentially use my credit card as a debit card but still earn points at the same time.

Has anyone successfully negotiated a higher salary with PWC at an experienced associate level?

Only after 5 weeks I am going to join TCS. In my offer letter it is mentioned I am selected at "TCS Kolkata"; but till now I have not received any information/details/call related to my project yet. As selected in a drive panel so hence no clue about the roles and responsibilities. Infact not receiving any proper response from contact points (I understand there may be some protocol that client/project details will not be revealed before joining). Is there anyway I could get atleast some details?

I am heading into IVF and the clinic made us sign a document saying if one of us is tested positive for COVID, the whole procedure will be canceled. The testing must be performed at their site.
