Staying at the Miami Edition for my birthday! Used my points, and am a Platinum Elite member. Any ideas on how to ask the hotel if they do anything nice for birthdays? Also, how to get upgrades?

1) add a comment to your reservation that it a birthday is involved. 2) email/call the GM or Concierge and let them know

Or simply call your ambassador and let her/him know that's it's a special day and she/he will take care of it even if the hotel generally doesn't do anything - upgrades included. Also, might be worth using your free suite nights if you have any.

The EDITION is pretty good with favors. Get on the phone with a GM/concierge and you may get something nice. Upgrades may be hard to come by - as a platinum member I’ve asked and been rebuffed on the bungalows twice. Just going to be your luck day of!

What are the best reasons to go full-time after freelancing? I started freelancing a month ago after I was laid off thinking it would just be temporary but I’m really enjoying it so far. My stress levels are lower and the money is better. I have a few full time opportunities in the mix and I’m trying to gauge if I should go back to full-time or stick with freelance. For those who have taken a full time gig after a successful freelance run, what did you base your decision on?
