Hey friends! I had a delta credit and booked a flight to South east Asia with the credit. Im traveling via Korean Air. I have a lot of credit card points. Any advice on how I can upgrade? Our flight doesn’t come up on Korean since we booked thru delta.
My husband and I are looking to go on a 6-day warm-weather trip together in February. I have a bunch of Marriott Bonvoy points I can use so would prefer a Marriott property. Any suggestions?
I am a field marketer. I travel and cover 12 states. HQ is across the US on the east coast. My manager put a surprise calendar invite twice now to go to home office without consulting dates to see if we were available. I stood up and asked to be included on available dates and said I will attend virtually but asking me to be away for 4 additional full days away from my family without asking me is not OK. I already travel a lot and this boundary is super important to me. Am I right or wrong?
If 2 SPG members are staying in one hotel room, can they both get elite qualifying nights? Or is it only the one who booked it? Anyone know how that works?
Is there any rule to have minimum 1 year valid visa to travel back to US. Some one told me but did not find any source for that so thought of asking. I’m on H1 B and would travel around Aug to India with just 5 months valid visa
Anybody here do travel social work?
Planning for a family (of 4) trip to either Greece or Portugal in late fall this year. Flight costs are almost same. Any pointers as to which one would provide biggest bang for the buck? We're mostly laid back, don't care for top end luxury, not great hikers. Just looking a relaxing vacation.
Delta Air Lines sees you 👀

Is there an average % of my salary I should be investing per month/year? Currently max out my 401k, Roth and HSA. Contribute $700/month to investment portfolio and ~3k a month towards a future down payment (expecting that 3k to transition to my monthly mortgage payment once I find a home). There’s usually about ~1k left over that I balance between savings and portfolio but didn’t know if there was one I should allocate more to? Will need to do backdoor Roth next year so can contribute more there

So apparently EY believes that moving to unlimited PTO will provide a first mover/differentiator advantage amongst the big 4.. I’d advise Deloitte, PWC, and KPMG folks to let EY stand alone on this one! None of us asked for this and they are doing it primarily to reduce PTO accrual liability for layoffs/in states where employers are limited in taking away earned PTO
I want to move to NYC but can’t decide if it’s a good move or not, I’ve been living in the suburbs all of my life.

Any suggestions on where I can move near or in NYC that’s affordable and I can explore at the same time have it be quiet.
Non solicitation clauses in employment contract, are these a cause for concern? Leaving my B4 firm soon, but found out that my contract specifies that i cant poach people from the firm for 2 yrs and this makes sense. But the puzzling part is client non solicitation; which says i cant work for any of my clients from the past 2 yrs, for next two years. Says that if found, i will owe Xx% of the engagement fee considered lost? Is this crazy?
