IHG credit card - one free night with the annual fee (waived year one). Was the free night automatically put on in points or do I need to do something?

You don't get free night on year 1 since the fee is waived. You get a free night certificate right after the annual fee is charged in year 2. Look at night certificates and it'll track them as well as any nights awarded due to promos.

IHG cc is the unicorn card . You get automatic platinum status. I stayed a week in a $400 suite at a ICH for about $180 a night with the free upgrade from a shitty room.

For the Marriott card you have to call a special number to use the one free night. My apologies if IHG has a different process but I figured it might be the same.

Marriott gives you a free night the first year when the fee is waived

*applies for new card*

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

Got promoted to senior but did not get a raise to go with it.

So it pisses me off that they shot their mouth off about how great year last year was...cont
