What credit card to you recommend pairing well with chase sapphire preferred for maximizing redemption? Pretty new to points and def don’t know a lot! I’m considering one of the Marriott cards bc we love Marriott or an Amex one! Any ideas appreciated 🤗 TIA!!
Marriott number did not apply correctly to reservation. Front desk person tried to add it and then told me it was done, but stay is still not showing in my account. Can they add retroactively w folio?
SPG app updated for me but not combination
Aloft or Element in Detroit? Personal trip and the Westin is 50% greater. Both look great but thought I would check here. Leaning towards the Element.
Arrived at a SPG property last week and had email confirmation and booking in the app but hotel didn’t have it - manager blamed merger IT issues, anybody else experienced this recently?
Marriott randomly deposited close to 1 million points into my account. Did this happen to anyone else? Any chance they will not recognize the glitch? I went ahead and booked a trip on points fully expecting them to remove the points and cancel the reservation by the end of the day
Need help deciding which is more valuable: 60k bonvoy points outright or converting to 25k AA miles. Even tho I plan to stay in AirBnBs in upcoming vacations, I don’t want to sacrifice value
Anyone want to buy my bonvoy points?
Almost 4 weeks in and my status is still wrong. It was correct for the first ~1 day and then bumped down a level. Shouldn’t be hard as all my nights last year were SPG. This is ridiculous.
Do Starwood reservations eventually come over onto Marriott after you combine? Mine still haven’t...
Recently joined a consulting firm and have a corporate AmEx now. I am planning on paying the $95 fee to get the points from corporate expenses. I also have only a chase sapphire preferred. Is it worth picking up a Gold or Platinum card to pool all the points in one place? I eat out a lot and mostly redeem points for statement credit or the occasiaonl hotel room (use Marriott). Don’t do a ton of personal flying. Thanks in advance.

How many points? Platinum Elite Marriott member- Delayed flight got me to the hotel at ~2:00am. I try to check in and was told they have my reservation, but there is no room available. They “tried to contact me” but also told me I have no phone number on file (never been told this, I believe it is, plus my email is there). Ended up literally having to call nearby hotels with the front desk lady and walking to a Marriott with our luggage .5 mile away. Had to pay double the original booked rate
Hello fishes, I'm a Business Intelligence Developer (Power BI-SQL) with 3.5 years of experience. My current CTC is 9 LPA. Is it a good idea to make a jump now for 16-17 LPA or is it going to make me overpaid for my next jump?I am confused. Do I need to stay for another year and then make a jump. I am comfortable with my current work and the management and organisational culture is excellent. I am also worried that these things might go to hell if I make a jump for a higher salary. Any thoughts?
