Not platinum for life at Marriott yet? Amateur

Marriott platinum for life is kind of a badge of mediocrity (written from a mediocre Marriott)

Marriott platinum as well. However last year I was light on nights so only requalified gold. I think United GS comes wth Marriott platinum included. My accounts are linked already I believe. Do I need to do anything to reclaim Marriott platinum?

They used to provide GS with that benefit but they took that away / has been applied inconsistently. I have been GS for 4 years and got that benefit twice. This year GS / Marriott customer care specifically told me that the benefit no longer exists.

I thought the UA match was to gold?

Absolutely! That’s why I have Diamond at the HoJo

Temporarily traveled to SC. Matched with a guy on app and we’ve been talking for about a month. We are planning to meet up in DC where I live. He wants to go to a Dallas game but I’m not trying to pay $400 for a ticket (not into football). I also feel selfish for not wanting to spend that amount since he will have to buy a flight ticket and pay for a hotel. It sucks because I just want a dinner date but he’s putting in a lot of time and money to meet me. Should I just buy the ticket?

We want to go to Thailand with our 1 year old in Nov; however, we have been told we are crazy multiple times.

We are flying business, if that helps). Could anyone provide perspective on how you might consider whether to cancel? Should we do something else (e.g. Europe, Mexico, etc.). The trip is 2+ weeks long
