When you check your Delta app Sunday night and the red Sky Priority band magically appears in the top left corner of your trip >>>
Is West Coast consulting life during WFH the worst possible scenario right now, especially if you have a crappy team? I have clients/3rd party vendors/fellow team members in all time zones in the US + Western & Eastern Europe. My email starts blowing up by 3am, and we have senior managers on our team in the East coast that work until 2AM EST. The only way this could be worse is if I lived in Hawaii LOL "It's about points scored, not minutes played"
Does anyone know where I can go to look up SPG/Delta related challenges? Loosing my SPG Platinum status next month and looking for ways to get back on
Can you use Marriott free nights on a 5th night free stay? When I try to book online, it always applies the first free night certificate to the night that's actually free (5th night), negating the purpose.
Does anyone pass the merchant/credit card fees to their clients when the client pays online?

Mamas who travel... how did you overcome the fear of having your child not have the same “mom” relationship with you?
Did anyone get the SPG announcement email saying the accounts merge is going to be official come August? Does this mean our SPG points will start diluting??

How is westin resort at Cancun ? I received an offer from SPG for a discounted 5D/4N stay and trying to decide if I should book it. Thanks!
Afraid of my chase account being closed. If you were to transfer UR Points and had no option otherwise, what/where would you transfer your points? Approx 200,000 UR points, not the most but don't wanna lose them haha
Does anyone know how I can speak with someone more senior at SPG? The customer service I’ve encountered is completely unacceptable and I’m tired of being put on hold for 20 minutes with no solution
I just reached lifetime platinum at SPG. But, I still can’t figure to turn on lamps in the room.. quickly enough.🤦🏼♂️
Getting rid of my Platinum Delta SkyMiles AMEX. Spoke with Delta - it doesn't help my priority for upgrades unless I spend more than $25k on the card. Only Delta Reserve AMEX helps priority.
Been on the bench for 2 weeks. Internal strategy role for a year was offered to me. Should I take it?
Back on the road in the AM after 8 months of the WFH life. The Sunday Scaries are at an all time high right now.
someone save this attorneys job. I hired an attorney with 5 years experience. I send her assignments and usually the law we're using. She never reads the breifs or memos we've prepared. Does her own research and usually misses the points. When I ask why she says she's intimidated by the memos etc and they're "hard". That drove me up a wall. We don't get paid to do easy things. Just because it's hard you give up? WTF.
Heading home from a fun agility lesson 😊😊

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
Guy sitting in front of me on the plane is bragging about how much he travels to the lady next to him. He just pulled out his phone & showed her his Marriott app and said "I travel quite a bit". #smh

I recently transitioned to wfh full-time, in house. Amazing gig - I’m not complaining - but I literally never have to wear suits or anything fancy. Coworkers wear t-shirts, rarely blouses. My background is litigation, so I’m used to wearing sweaters, cardigans, suits, dresses. I don’t want to be the only one wearing business casual outfits but I can’t bring myself to wear a tank top/t-shirt and sweats/leggings every day. Advice for what to wear to wfh now that I’m just dressing for me? (Cont.)
Someone remind me please, if I book a flight through Chase portal, my elite status will kick in vs. if I book a hotel through the portal I won’t get the points, correct?
I have a job interview tomorrow. It’d be more pay and a lot less stressful but in the back of my mind I wonder if I do end up getting it’d be a mistake. Continued...
There’s a position I want to apply to at a different company, and it seems like it would fit me perfectly. I went on LinkedIn and saw that there’s one person from my undergrad school that works there with a similar title for the job I want. How do I reach out to him and how much is too much? Do I ask for advice on getting the job/how the job is/ a referral? Should I even reach out?
What factors do you consider to evaluate an entry level job role? Sister is evaluating an industry offer but I have no idea what’s “good” or where to negotiate.
What is a reasonable salary expectation for exit opportunities for an audit M1 looking to move into an accounting/reporting role? HCOL (NYC area)
Recruiter screen next week. Added a few folks on LinkedIn from the company/group (don’t know them personally). They accepted invite. Is it bad to reach out and ask about the role while (cont.)
Okay I’m going to say it if hasn’t been said before: I want the option to go back to the office now. I get some of you have kids or prefer wfh but I can’t stand it. I hate being cramped up and some people also live with toxic family members. We should make it optional for those who want/need to come back
Some savage ripped the crossword answer sheet out of my in-flight mag. How am I supposed to know what "to go, say" is alluding to without talking to the guy next to me in the nascar jacket
Just transferred to the NYC office and realized it’s a whole new beast (people/culture/projects). Any advice is welcome!
