Maybe a weekend away with your SO and then a couple nights “staying” at the cheapest point redemption option near you. The bump from gold-> plat is 25% vs 50% point bonus so you’ll likely come out ahead even if you need to burn points for 2 or 3 nights.

Book a meeting room for an hour in the cheapest property near you. 10 nights right there.

Check if the 10 nights for first meeting benefit is applicable once a year or once per life of an account. If later, hold back on it when you are going to be 10+ nights short and need that boost to make status.

Has anyone exited out of consulting and changed geographies (countries)? How? Any tips?

I'm thinking of asking here for recruiting/exec search firms that search ex consultants in my desired geographies.

My H1B visa transfer with EY has been approved. We have received the e-approval. Can I now resign or give notice at my current firm? The guidance apparently is to wait for physical copy of the approval before officially resigning. But that date is uncertain and I’m afraid I could get the physical copy a day before my start date or a week after that. I’d like to give my firm around two weeks notice and I am scheduled to start on 27th Sept. Thoughts? As usual, radio silence from my EY recruiter.
