Still hoping to purchase Hilton Honors points! Ideally looking for 150k, but fewer will help as well. Hmu if you have some to sell!
Note to all: Just because you have elite status and are riding dirty in first class does not mean you get to be a douche nozzle. Don't make the window passenger step over you to get to their seat!!!!!
Why can’t they make the Lifetime Platinum status as the Lifetime Platinum PREMIER ELITE status with Lifetime Ambassador support, instead of the regular lifetime platinum?!
Prob been asked but how do you best use Bonvoy points. Debating 60k/night in Iceland or saving up for 85k/night Ritz in Caymans (or something like that). Generally what level to spend the points?
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?
Good Marriott hotel in Vegas for Christmas time? Platinum elite member hoping for upgrades.
Currently working on plan C of a honeymoon as we don’t expect to be able to go Europe in June/July as hoped. Plan A and B were variations of Italy (relax) and Spain (mountain biking). Hoping to use bonvoy points. Any US centered suggestions? Maybe refocusing on golf/warmth/spa/food now.
CSR now gives 10x for booking through the portal for hotels, but I’ve heard we won’t get Bonvoy points if we book through portal because it’s booked through 3rd party? Is that true? What about nights towards status?
Today is not the day to hassle your elite status fliers about measuring their bag during Priority boarding AA!

Any talk of travel resuming at Accenture ? I am about to join as a Life Science Technology consultant and was hoping to get thoughts on if travel will be what it was pre-COVID (Mon-Thurs travel)? Thanks for your input!
I was lucky enough to be admitted to a T15 school, but I did not receive any scholarships. I think it will be worth it, but is anyone else freaked out about the cost and debt?
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.
Looking for some advice. I have very sore relationship with my mom. I am from south Asian family and my mom only cares about is her son. I have already lost my father, I am still single and my mom..
Talked to SO about wanting more effort from him, he said he believes in giving what he is receiving & doesn’t chase. However I like to be pursued and feel wanted. Is this a situation of just wanting different things? Or should I start putting in more effort to pursue him and see if it’s reciprocated?

One of my favorite things about consulting is county of origin diversity. Can we do a quick poll here of various CoO represented. Put your flag and have the fellow nationals upvote!
Received a referral from a McKinsey Associate for a BA role. Applied about a week ago through the referral portal for it, just curious as to how long it takes to hear back and if a referral even guarantees a screening call? Thanks for any help in advance! McKinsey & Company
