Recently joined a consulting firm and have a corporate AmEx now. I am planning on paying the $95 fee to get the points from corporate expenses. I also have only a chase sapphire preferred. Is it worth picking up a Gold or Platinum card to pool all the points in one place? I eat out a lot and mostly redeem points for statement credit or the occasiaonl hotel room (use Marriott). Don’t do a ton of personal flying. Thanks in advance.
I am bored and thinking of getting a CC - United Quest vs Bonvoy Brilliant. I’m a heavy user of both United and Marriott so they look equally promising. I already have CSR and Plat.
I already have CSR that gives me 3X UR points per $1. I’m a Marriott loyalist and thinking about getting Boundless that give 6X Marriott Points (MP) per $1. Right now 1 UR = 1 MP, should I get it?
Anyone got any good Marriott corporate codes?
No hot water at Marriott for past 3 nights. Front Desk says potentially due to renovation, no alternative solutions offered. Points?
Really worried about 4-16 announcement. I left consulting. 696 lt nights. 1.87 M points Marriott. 246 Lt SPG , 300k points. All I ever cared about was lifetime plat, United and Delta x-over but now??
My fellow loyal SPG stayers, should all have the email from SPG but just in case: http://thepointsguy.com/2016/04/3x-bonus-starpoints-with-spg-triple-up/
Is 20k points for a cat 6 westin + comped 2 night stay a reasonable compensation for a positive bedbug incident?
What happens when you book an SPG hotel through the Chase travel portal? Do you still get the normal platinum benefits, credits, etc?

Trying to pay for a spa package for my mom using SPG points. Has anyone done this before? My mom doesn't have an SPG account, but was planning to create an account and transfer enough points for this

I'm always surprised to hear how many of my grad school friends (& consultants) are still on adderall/vyv/modafini type stimulants. At what point do you join the rest of the adult world and just DEAL?
Need help for finding internship for a really close friend. Fellow FishBowlers, please help? 😓
A friend has failed the bar a few times, and it has so affected him that he decided he won’t try again. Fortunately he had a career prior to school and returned to it (with massive loan debt). I understand we are in a pandemic, but I can’t help but think of him every time I hear discussion of the diploma privilege bar admission alternative to the bar exam. Do you think this is the best alternative?

I’m almost 40. (Yes, I’m practically dead.) If there’s one piece of career advice I can give to young creatives: keep your portfolio updated. Don’t wait long periods of time. Just keep it going.
