If I use a free night award at a Ritz, can I still try to use a suite night upgrade or get an upgrade as an Ambassador, or better to just use my points straight out for an upgrade?
Do Bonvoy points always expire after 12 months, regardless of what tier you make? Coming off of IHG and those did not expire at EOY.

Friday was complicated. So, I am going to break it down. Nasdaq 100 Futures (NQ) traded to the 9837 level, 32.75 points short of it's 50% HWB short. It then proceeded to sell off like nobody's business to 9846.50, 31.5 points higher than the projected objective for the HWB short. So, if you followed me on the channel, we were positioned for a nice rally at the end of the day. Markets have no memory on Friday afternoon. So, I think we are going up eventually and rally hard.
Checking into my hotel this week, the desk clerk didn't seem very sincere in asking how my day was. How many points should I demand?
Hi everyone! I'm working on a product that helps 1099 contractors find eligible tax write-offs and deductions throughout the year. I'm doing some market research to identify pain points, and your feedback would be a huge help. This survey is short -- less than 5 minutes of your time and only 10 questions. Thank you in advance!

Seeing a lot of people ask if they need to bump their GMAT score up from like 720 to 760 - NO! It is one part of the application (tick box IMO once you hit 700). Further study is an opportunity cost of writing great essays. Work out your unique selling points with lots of great examples. Do the essays then when you think it’s perfect, leave for 2-3 weeks and reread like you don’t know you - guarantee you’ll redo. Screenshot of areas I typically need to explore (school gives guidance).
United Platinum here - got an offer to pay ~$6k for upgrade to 1K. Thoughts on if it’s worth it? Already belong to Club (United Infinite) and have CLEAR credit through Amex Platinum. Still have 40 plus points from hitting Platinum last year. Unlikely to travel for business until late 2Q at earliest but have 2-3 transcontinental flights planned for summer and 1 transatlantic for fall. Maybe another 1-2 shorter trips this year as well. I imagine I’d use my extra plus points on all these.
