New Hilton 3x promo or stick Marriott? What’s better

Would say yes it’s worth it unless you’re trying to get nights/status for lifetime Marriott Just doing the math average points values using Aspire: (10 pts base + 20 pts card promo + 10 pts diamond + 14 points card)* 0.4¢/pt = 21.6% returns Comparing to Marriott platinum using Bonvoy card: (10 pts base + 7.5 pts platinum + 7 pts card) * 0.7¢/pt = 17.15% This holds for CSR/AmEx plat also and even assuming conservative 0.35¢/pt for Hilton


interesting. never happens to me. anything with high cash rates ($500+) is always like 200k points per night... no thanks

The only people I’ve ever heard say Marriott is best are the people who have only ever gained status with Marriott. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t stay at Marriott properties. They have tons of hotels and different brands and that carries value. Their loyalty program is just shit.


luxury collection/ritz/jw/st regis are all super solid (some are amazing) and usually not more than 60k points per night. hilton has conrad and waldorf and london which charge 120-300k points per night. hilton is only good for cheaper properties or properties in cheap cities imo.

promos go away. Marriott better long term



What's the 3x promo?

They’re doing a 3x points promo rn

I adopted a dog early in 2021 when I was a biglaw M&A associate. From the start, he was always under my desk when I was working and sat as close to me as possible. He was a little doggie doughnut sleeping on my feet. This went on every day for 11 months until I went in house. Nothing else has changed, but since going in house, my dog doesn’t sit in my office anymore. In hindsight, I understand now that he was comforting me because he knew I was so stressed. Dogs are amazing. That is all. ✌🏻🐶

Has anyone tried having their boss break down salary increases into components or a logic? My boutique firm gave me a total 10% increase in base over two years, calling it a “promotion bump”. When I inquired about inflation vs performance/responsibility, they said that’s the reason it’s 10%. In effect, ~3% effective increase over two years. Am I right to be a little frustrated?
