Hi! I'm new to points and was wondering how Hilton's '5th night on us' works? Do I just book for 5 and will only be 'charged' 4?

With points, yes. The nights will just average out so if was 10,000 a night, if you book 5 nights you’ll get the room for 8,000 a night.

Just do Marriott, it’ll make your life a lot easier given their footprint.

P1, hotel footprint isn't really what differentiates Marriott from Hilton 🤔

It’s what differentiates me finding a close hotel or not.

It's like 6500 hotels with Marriott/SPG combined vs. 5500 with Hilton, not too much of a difference - think you might have some sort of sample bias going on.
The real difference between the two is Marriott has a better return from a points perspective on each dollar spent and also has better elite benefits such as guaranteed late checkout and better room upgrades

Thanks a lot C1!

Pretty obvious but has anyone else thought about the impact on effective comp that comes with the lack of travel, and the consequences for talent management? Banks are jacking base salaries to the moon, but our industry is barely budging.

Consider the loss of food expensing that had netted us hundreds of dollars per week. The lack of payment in lieu of travel on weekends. The rewards points/miles we’re not accruing. The tax-free nature of all of it. Is it any surprise we're hurting for talent?

The more data points I can gather before interviewing, the better.

Help!! My bestfriend is doing two months abroad and was trying to fly into turkey when they told her she couldn't because her passport expired within three months.

She went to the US Embassay in Athens knowing she had a month left of traveling, and gave her an emergency passport and punched holes in her exsisting one. Now no country will let her in with her emergency passport.

Can her mom get her a passport in the US and ship it to her? Is there anyway around this?

Thank you!!

Since leaving the federal govt & joining consulting last year, I’ve already learned new skills + met some great people. I’ve also seen a few who are competitive to the point of toxicity. Just like the feds who’ve perfected laziness & stagnation...I feel sorry for them both. With the feds, they may not realize it, but they are rotting in place. For the hyper competitive consultants, nothing will ever be enough. For both, by the time they realize their error, it will be way too late.
