What do you choose for your annual choice benefit from Marriott and why? I don’t need the night credits or a bed and none of my family/friends could really use silver elite status

I agree with the free night but it’s only for rooms up to 40,000 points so you can’t stay at the nicer properties.

Usually suite nights if I don't need the nights credit for next tier

Yes. They're only available for 1 calendar year, and not available for all brands (e.g., Ritz)

I’ve never been able to use a suite night - the free night is a better choice IMHO

I should end this year with 71 nights so will be using the extra 5 nights credited. Tried using the suite awards several times this year but told they were not available. Then when I checked in got upgraded each time anyway.

5 night credit at 50 nights and free night at 75 nights. One year i missed the deadline to choose so got defaulted into suite night awards. never again.

I believe that they don’t count for lifetime. Actually, I am not sure Platinum/Gold year counts as lifetime if you reach it with the 5 extra nights (this happens as well with double night promos)

Does the amount of "Breakthrough Cases" rising among those fully vaccinated make anyone... wonder? Now there's a "Delta+" variant?

I'm fully vaxed but I can't help but wonder... this is what the Anti-Vaxers have been warning and saying the whole time and it's making me second guess which side I'm on...

Tonight Meghan said that she was concerned that “the first member of color in this family isn’t being titled in the same way as other grandchildren would be”. This was really disingenuous because none of the other great grand kids except William’s (for good reason) have titles either, so why would Archie be given one? This is why I feel like this interview was somewhat staged and that M&H are not exactly the most trustworthy.

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
