But they’re also switching to dynamic points to downgrade the bonvoy points 😭

It’s 3:1.1 with United, plus 5,000 additional miles for every 60,000 points you transfer. Almost all other programs are 3:1. Before just transferring to United, consider sweetspots in other Star Alliance carriers award charts. ANA in particular can be quite good, and Air Canada for interesting routings (e.g. US to Asia with a stopover in Europe en route). Aegean has some strong points too.

I had 5 nights booked on points for thanksgiving and just randomly checked and now the booking is 10,000 points cheaper. Cancelled and remade the reservation. I’m not going to be hopeful and think dynamic points would continue to create these nice wins, but yep I’m happy getting 10,000 points back to help with the upcoming point deflation 🙃. 1.19 cent per value on this booking too…

Has anyone else dealt with this situation? My company has no CLO or GC. However, my company runs all in house legal opinions through its CCO, a non attorney. The CCO and I have had disagreements on points of law on several occasions, but regulatory actions have backed up my opinions. Regardless, the company values the layman's point of view more than mine. I do not feel appreciated by this company in my current role.

Have 46 nights on Marriott Bonvoy this year - no more work travel so if I want to get to 50 I’d have to stay 4 nights personal - have my plat status renewed for next year so staying the 4 nights would only be for getting the 5 suite night upgrades - never had them before so wondering if they’re worth spending ~$700 in essence just for them? What would u guys do?
