Is it possible for me to get an upgrade (on status, i mean) at the cosmopolitan vegas? Marriott platinum elite.
I just moved here recently and adjusting a little bit to the culture shock coming from NYC. What are some of your favorite spots or top things you think I should do to help with the transition? Bonus points if it helps me meet people
Best SPG in Charlotte?
6000 points + 110/night for Westin Grand Cayman
+367/night rate or 12000 points free otherwise excluding taxes fees and resort fees
What does one get when they complete 5 years in a company?
In Intel they give a award to them but curious what are the other goodies? Maybe some RSUs and recognition points?
Why do you consult? Because It’s God’s chosen profession? Because it’s better to be upper middle class than anything else? Because you’re passionate about the art of recommending real world strategies that came to you in a Hilton night excel fever dream? Because after graduating from a big name school consulting is the best opportunity to continue your panicky need to be validated by letters?
Need to stay in NYC for a few days. Attending a late night show right off of times square. Hotel recommendations?
W, Westin, the Lexington, St Regis are all close but I've never stayed in the city
So... hotel less than stellar. Show head is gross AF. Everyday smells like BO in the hallway, Machine noises every night, water pressure sucks and dirty sheets. What do you think? How many points?
What's your hands-down favorite restaurant in the city? Just moved to the area and I'm excited to try them all out. (Bonus points for sharing what makes it special!)
Last-minute advice: Engram or Burton? 0.5 PPR, I need 6 points from TE to beat my opponent. Helpppp
Does anyone have an email template they like when making "cold call" introductions to other professionals/potential referral sources? I'm a transactional attorney who needs to build a referral network with CPAs, financial planners, etc., and invite them to come to me with questions or send their referrals on over! Bonus points if you have more than one or one which is more easily customizable.
New to this…with Amex Platinum what is the best / most economical use of your points? I see you can cover charges on the card as well.
During take off on my 10 hour United flight to LHR, water started leaking out of the vent for about a minute and got me wet. I even had enough time to record ~20 seconds of it. How many points?

Also, please mention any of the negative points related to work culture and job satisfaction. Morningstar #morningstar
Sorry in advance guys.
How can I check to make sure my SPG and Marriott pts/nights merged properly? It looks 50/ 100K lower, but unsure how to check old/unmerged balances. Thanks!
Is anyone annoyed that accolades has oddball pricing like 106 for a gift card and you need to pay $10 for 10 points. You can’t just get 6 points?
What’s the point of suite upgrade nights with Marriott? I have had all of mine denied or the reservation doesn’t qualify. You feel like you get a perk but never can use them.

I’ve been getting my meds the last few months from Cerebral but just the dreaded email that they will no longer be prescribing stimulants starting in October due to regulatory changes. Does anyone know if this is for all telehealth services or just some? It’s been amazing not having to go in person and scrambling to make up my hours at work just to get the same meds I’ve been taking for almost 10 years.
Would love to collaborate on any software engineering side projects. I’m looking to continue to sharpen my swe skills and keep building my tech stack.
