Is it worth $2k (15 nights at the cheapest hotel near me) to retain my Titanium Elite status? This would be year 5 with it.

No it’s not. I’m an Ambassador and I wouldn’t willing spend $2k to keep it

Could you spend points instead? Could be cheaper if you could get a good redemption. Cat 1 off peak would be 60,000 points (~$378 worth of points at $.0063/point per Boarding Area, if I’m doing my math right)

EDIT: If you don’t have the points you can transfer from Amex MR or Chase UR to make up the difference. Even if you had to transfer the entire 60k from AX MR, at 1.55 cpp, that’s still just $930 worth of points.

Following, thinking of doing the same thing

I doubt it

Absolutely not, unless you’re close to lifetime platinum

Nope

Definitely not

Depends if 2k is a big chunk of your pay

Absolutely not

Not unless it gets your lifetime plat and you’re about to stop consulting etc
