You mean ambassador status? I’d call or just stay somewhere if I was that close. Still some months left this year

Just stay somewhere. Maybe find a place with a pool and do a local vacation

Titanium has a spend requirement now?

Staycation! I have done this before to maintain status…

Stay in a hotel in your hometown

No spend requirements for Ambassador. I echo what E2 says and do a staycation if you're only short that about. That's easy!

There is a qualifying spend.

As others have said, Ambassador isn't worth it anymore.

Yes, I mean for Ambassador Elite:) I see an “annual qualifying spend” on the app along with the 100 nights. Is the spend not a requirement?

There is a spend requirement

It’s not worth $400 if your own money, in my opinion, though I don’t really ask for a bunch of stuff with my status, so who knows. Just my single data point

There is no titanium spend req 🤷🏻‍♀️

Currently I’m on H1B and a SA1b at PwC, EY is offering me SA3. At present, PwC just started my GC process and it’s been only 4-5 months in the initial Perm application. I’m not sure whether EY would start my GC process from Day1 if I join their organization. One of the recruiters from EY mentioned that they don’t start GC process unless I have 2 years left on H1B expiry. I have currently 4 more years left (1+3). Should I consider going to EY or stay in PwC? Open for thoughts to tackle this. TIA!PwC EY
