So you can’t transfer corporate Amex rewards points to travel partner anymore I just learned. What’s the best use of points then? I have Amex Hilton and an old delta. Would love to just ideally transfer them to a partner and cancel my membership fee
Has anyone actually ever been asked to show proof to use corporate rate at a Marriott property?

My younger brother has the opportunity to do Software Engineering at FAANG and consulting at MBB as a fresh grad. I told him to do SWE, but I’m afraid I’m giving him biased advise cause I’m jaded in this industry. If you were me, what would you advise him?
I'm 32 years old, and I seem to have 0 career ambition. Is it wrong? All of my MBA classmates are fighting for their career, but I'm just doing bare minimum. Literally only working for 4 hours a day (a full time job though). Spending rest of time writing, making bracelet, learning new language and random stuff for fun. I question myself whether this lifestyle is wrong TBH...
