It can be a great deal. 90k Starpoints worth roughly $2250. 132k UA worth roughly $1700, you should be easily able to make up that $550 with a week stay. The hard part is fully using 7 nights in one property

Does anyone know if you can transfer a credit card balance twice? I.e. say if I have 5k in my Amex and I want to transfer that balance to a Citi card.

I recently received an offer from KPMG Global Services for 27 LPA. I have got another one from DXC for 31 LPA(including VP). As I'm more inclined towards KPMG I reached to KPMG HR asking to revise the offer letter. However, I was informed by the KPMG HR that both the offers are almost same as KPMG does not mention VP in the offer letter. Is that correct? If yes, what's the percentage that is normally paid out?
