SO stressed from the apartment hunt. Went to see a couple of places that looked nothing like the photos. Was told by one place that: “We don’t like roommates.” Brokers asking for a $200 fee just to apply. So many 1 beds being sold as 2 beds. Current landlord ghosting me when I want to stay. If anyone knows of reasonable true 2 bedrooms in Murray Hill or Kips Bay please let me know...bonus points if theu are offering a deal rn 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
Using Marriott Bonvoy points for a stay for my parents: I have in the past used my SPG points and added my father’s name (by teaching out to the hotel after booking) to the reservation. It worked just fine and they even benefits fronm my Elite benefits (free breakfast). Just booked a stay for February for them and read the following “Hotel rewards e-certificates can only be requested by a Marriott Rewards member for a reservation in that member's own name. E-certificates will not be honored”

After a hard reset on travel points (got none after Covid and change to industry) how would you start over? Which credit card is best for travel points? Airline? Starwood or Bonvoy? Avis or ??

I even let go of Amex platinum, just wasn’t worth it to me. Base airport LAX/SNA so no airline pref.

They were seemingly good, competent consultants good at structuring problems. They cared about junior consultants. Didnt see any issues with clients..
