For a million points and a week, you'd find me at Castillo Hotel son Vida in Mallorca. No idea what the island is like with covid though

Honestly, just look at all the category 7-8 options and stay at a couple. With 1m points, you could in theory do 12-14 nights (stay 4 get the 5th free deal). Off the top of my head, and taking into account the season, I’d recommend the Edition in Bodrum, Barcelona, and Tokyo.

Dome noruz in Crete Greece. Other great Marriott’s throughout the Greek islands

I’m a Product Manager who wants to change careers. What is a job where I can work independently and am more task oriented? Meaning I want to know what I have to do for the day, and I can knock it out at my own pace. Maybe it’s COVID, but I’m sick of meetings with other people and simply want to be the owner of the outcome instead of being dependent on other departments/people. Obviously bonus points if it’s a sensible transition from a PM!

Reserve vs SPG, thoughts? I got the reserve last year and have been using to pay all hotels, should I cancel now when the fee is charged again and go back to SPG? I like the flexibility of having points outside of spg tough

So I didn’t get my brother and your sister-in-law a gift for their wedding last February because I wanted to send them on a honeymoon. I thought I’d be able to use my points and really give them experience to remember. But it turns out because of Covid there are limits to the use of points for hotels and airfare. I don’t mind spending my own money, what do you think is reasonable? This is my only sibling.
