Nope- funny story. I was complaining about it HARD at dinner in CT with my team and a guy from another table leans over and says- I work for Starwood. I was like- oh good - let me give you my negative feedback directly. He did nothing. I lit them up- letters, note to my old ambassadors etc. no go. There must not be enough business traveler women who take leave for them to give a crap. Sad.

No and when I came back from maternity leave after 5 years of platinum they wouldn't match my status either (for some reason Marriott never expires) ... I had to re-earn from scratch like a newb

Nope. Had to do a status challenge earlier this year.

That's what I thought. I have loyalty with every other hotel chain except for them. I am too high maintenance to go 18 nights without status!

Nope. Currently doing a challenge...I sure do miss the words "Thank you for being a Diamond Member"

That is so awful PwC1! As a female that really upsets me. You are seriously so kind to bring your business back to them!! I would have boycotted them lol. Also major props to you for being a lady boss and traveling with a little one. I admire people who can do that. I can't even have a boyfriend and travel lol.

Thanks OP. D1- it only took me about 2.5 months to re-earn it. I have lifetime Gold- but Gold is decidedly not platinum 😮. It was a good exercise in humility.

PwC1- are you kidding me? They sure don't value your loyalty!

Find someone who can gift you gold status? :)

D1- who has the ability to gift me gold? Is that only lifetime platinums?

Thinking about a career change from insurance defense to district attorney. It will be a SIGNIFICANT decrease in income for the first few yrs, but I can't think of any other "con." I don't like what I'm doing & think I'd like being a prosecutor. Pros for me include more trial experience/client contact, less hours & more time for a future family, no billing, no travel, loan forgiveness, and generally feeling like I'm actually helping people.

Has anyone done this? Thoughts?

My company is paying for one credit card. I'm leaning towards Amex Platinum given the large 100k sign up bonus at the moment (which I'll be able to hit). People lean towards CSR because of the 3x on dining but I don't eat out that much (and additional perks, but I prefer the Amex for that).

Should I grab the Amex Plat and not think twice?? Thanks!!
