Just checked into Marriott and did not get upgraded with platinum status. Thought this was because they were booked, but another person who is gold got upgraded. Any thoughts on how many points can be had. I'd prefer a room, but it's a bit annoying since I'm traveling with family and a baby and we unpacked our bags
Anyone traveling from SF -> NYC on a weekly basis (or the other way around)? What’s your travel schedule?
Gonna be traveling to Houston from NYC weekly. Which airline should I pick? I have some United miles already, and already have United silver status (thanks Marriott)
I’m leaving my job. I have $2500 in unused United flights. When I attempt to use them United says I have to contact the corporate travel company. 2 Qs: 1) Will I be able to use the credit by calling United or 2) should I book my holiday flights with the credits before my last day and see what happens?
Have any of your organizations solved for how to be flexible on travel for those trying to conceive (M or F)? It’s not like that’s a conversation you want to strike up with your project director.
I am a field marketer. I travel and cover 12 states. HQ is across the US on the east coast. My manager put a surprise calendar invite twice now to go to home office without consulting dates to see if we were available. I stood up and asked to be included on available dates and said I will attend virtually but asking me to be away for 4 additional full days away from my family without asking me is not OK. I already travel a lot and this boundary is super important to me. Am I right or wrong?
I have an offer from optum(United health group) and _VOIS(vodafone intelligence services) for Data Science position. Can someone please tell which is better?
Keep getting vacation offers from Marriott brands. Latest one is 5 days/4 nights in Cancun for $269. Of course the catch is you have to sit through a 2 hour sales pitch.
Anyone tried this? Worth it?
Checked into a Marriott, got a shitty smelling stale smokey smelling room. They moved me quickly, but still. Worth how many points?

Hey all - could use some personal advice related to family. My sister and her husband (no kids) both work in low earning jobs (both in public services). He recently lost his job which I know is putting a huge stain on them financially. She is not one to accept help but It hurts to make so much more money and not be able to help. Any creative ways you’ve helped Fam out financially without just giving them cash? (Note - I would do that, she wouldn’t accept)

Asked for a leadership role, was told "maybe in a couple years" and staffed as an analyst, basically. Now the part time PM on the project is pinging me saying he doesn't have enough hours on our project and trying to dump things on me last minute.

Still, it hurts. Happy for friends having babies. But I wish I could, too!
