Marriott's version of green choice is less valuable. I think it is also 500pts per night but Marriott's pts are only worth 1/3 of SPG's. You can get platinum faster with SPG (50 nights and a no questions asked 18 night challenge vs 75 for Marriott) At 75 nights Marriott slightly out earns SPG, 15 pts/$ vs 4pts/$ when you consider the 3/1 conversion ratio. Starwood has a better check in bonus and green choice bonus so that mitigates the lower per dollar earn if you stay in cheaper hotels.

^very true. Earn SPG pts, transfer to Marriott

^ yep! Also if there is anything wrong with your stays I have found talking to a manager at spg a way more pleasant experience and they really want to make things right and will usually offer 5k-10k points!

Lost sense of maximizing points/mileage value for int’l flights. Why is Detla redeeming so much more for some routes than Chase UR and even other partner airlines?

I get it all depends on timing but still weird directly using Delta Skymiles on its own Delta route is more expensive than going through other methods....

I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!

I just handed in my two weeks notice without having something else lined up. I’ve interviewed with six companies already and haven’t received an offer. I am beginning to understand that I am doing something wrong, but I have no idea how to fix it. Does anyone know a good career coach or have advice on how to do well during a video interview? I never had an issue with interviews before, but I am really struggling now. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
