How often is complaining for points too often?

Purely assumption here but every two weeks would make me think you are looking to find something to complain about which is not how I would choose to live life on the road. Would also suck if it trickles into your personal life and you became more and more unapologetic and think you are always right and others are always wrong with minor inconveniences.

Great question. I got a shit ton of points after a severe incident and chose to continue staying at the property. Last week they had a milder but still unacceptable issue. Didn’t explicitly ask for points this time, just mentioned the issue and got a bag worth of shitty chips and snacks.

Hot take: $1M net worth is very attainable by all the consultants on this app. Consulting is in the top 5-10% (or better) paying jobs in the US. $1M net worth would put you in the top 6-8% as a 35-45 year old in the US. While everyone starts at different points (i.e student debt) and has different life circumstances resulting in different timelines, consulting provides solid income to allow you to save, invest and build wealth, if you choose.
