To second BCG1 - you can also play the # of stays game for SPG. If it doesn't look like you can get 50 nights. Bounce around Starwood proprieties throughout a week to hit the 25 stays requirement

Yes, traveling Mon-Arthur is crucial.

Yes I have both. If it's your first time you can use the platinum challenge for SPG that makes it easy, and for Marriott it's 75 nights (50 for SPG normally). If you travel 80% of the time that's about 125 nights assuming you travel Mon-Arthur :)

@BCG1 & PwC1 thanks! it's my first year and those are great tips.

I know many people who during megabonus move between Marriott and SPG during the week. You just have to get good at packing.

Yes

Yes. Source: I've had both for the past 2 years.

Can someone give me the link to this challenge?

@D1 ACN obv disagrees

@D1 whoops

Try maintaining plat/diamond with Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott and SPG. Travel too much 😔

They're going to be the same soon anyway, diversify elsewhere kids

Someone in my group just jumped from Accenture as a senior analyst to Deloitte as a SC. I’m currently a C at Accenture but really tempted to make the jump and reach for SC or M.

But at the same time I want my next move to be out of consulting. Still worth it to make the move?
