Regularly got over 10k spg points/week last study flying in Sunday nights, paying >$400/night, using spg credit card, and negotiating extra points for our team with the hotel

What's the breakdown for that? I'm on a project in NJ and I get 1k for the stay, 500 platinum gift, 500 SPG elite 50% bonus and 2k green choice (promo)

I'm racking up ~8000 a week in SF. Hotel is around $285/night and running a 3x points promo. Combine that with platinum status and "make a green choice"; leads to great results. 5K is pretty solid tho, that's the best I was able to do anywhere before this project.

2800 stay
1400 bonus
500 platinum
300 Uber
If property does green choice, add 1000

Totally makes sense IBM. Just use Uber and make Platinum and we earn same relative to rate.

For bigger projects you can negotiate double or triple the points at SPG properties. I am getting ~10k / week

What property in NYC? @EY1 what property in NJ?

Ahh fair I stay at a Westin and the rate is probably ½-⅓ yours.

What am I doing wrong? I'm getting about 4000 per stay at the W Downtown at like 425 per night. 2500 for stay 250 Gold bonus and 1250 Elite bonus? It doesn't make sense compared to others?

@OP Great thanks - I read too far into the 8000 point claims. Freaked me out!

That's with points promo...

Wait what points promos are going on right now with spg

I used to get ~36k Marriott a stay without bonuses which is 12k SPG, 5k is low

TLDR: Thoughts on FHA loan for purchase transition into rental property after 1 year? I plan on buying a condo Q1 2021. My SO and I currently rent so it’ll be our first home. My goal is to get this via a FHA loan, live there a few years then rent it out when we upgrade to our second house (which I think will be a house, not condo). We have enough for the 20% down but I want to take advantage of the FHA loan so that we have enough cash for our second place one year after living in the condo

Anyone have experience working for a firm that has PE backing?

The position and offer appeal to me as it allows me to get a very specific type of experience on my resume I'm not necessarily getting at my current role. However, I'm concerned as the PE backs another somewhat similar firm they will try to merge both firms in the future and get rid of redundancy in the name of synergy. If I do taking up the offer, what should I be on the lookout for? Thanks in advance.
