Was on track and then Covid and now I’m not sure if I ever want to hit the road, or will, to that level again. The perks of travel truly just mask some of the pain of being away from home .

M4 Ambassador was better in the SPG days, but since the start of the pandemic when Marriott laid off a bunch and ended personal ambassadors, it’s pretty pointless beyond getting more points and maybe better upgrade priority.

Yay thank you!

Another long time SPG person here. Never liked Marriott, and I’m pretty sure all my points have been devalued in the merger. I have low status at Hilton and I am dead to Hyatt. BTW, I think there is an Ambassador level above this. Am a million miler on United (which is really not that much) which guarantees a high lifetime status. I always joke that the free companion matching status that my wife also gets keeps us married😊
