Short of 10 days to renew Marriott Platinum. Is it worth doing mattress run for 7-8 nights assuming I only have 2 nights of legitimate stays in future plan?

Get the marriott credit card. $95 pa and you get a free night on your anniversary. Auto top up of 15 nights upon approval

I already own the marriott cc. I have 40nights so far through 15QN from CC and 25 bonus QN from last year’s carryover

Are the marginal benefits of Platinum status really worth the cost of 7-8 night mattress run?

See if deloitte’s travel liaison has a contact for marriot. Email them and say due to covid you missed it, blah, blah- they will probably comp it for you. They want to keep somebody who clearly will return to heavy travel happy…

I had this scenario with Hyatt and their corporate person just out me at globalist with no questions…

That’s a great idea! How did you find out who the travel liason/contacts were with your company?

Get the other Marriott CC. You can get 15 nights each from the business one as well as the personal.

I am pretty confident and know how to be appropriately assertive, but other than that I am wondering if anyone has thoughts or advice.
