Travel Hacking

I need one more night at Marriott to reach 100 nights in total for this year but won’t be able to do it since I have no plans to travel.. any suggestions on how to get that last night without staying?

Do you have the credit card? That’s 15 nights.

Can you share more info on this? May be interested in doing this in 2020, but don’t want to open more credit cards. Were you able to get credit for the 15 nights without activating? Any other benefits to the zero fee cards that would make keeping it worthwhile?

Do you have your 20k US in spend? If so, don't spend money on a stay: take the cheapest stay on points (some are 15K) and just checkin. Nights stayed on points counts for stays in the 100 nights. But make sure that you have 20k in spend. I had to stay 120 nights before I hit 20k.

You also don’t even need to find a hotel near you - find a cheap one with mobile keys and check in / out via the app

Have started building EM toolkit based on JEM/EM roles I played. TIA for help
