God bless america and frequent flier points
My favorite quote of the night, "how the fuck am I getting paid so much to do power points"
Me right now: when you get food poisoning at the Sheraton, but still have to smile and present at a CEO presentation. At least SPG gave me 15,000 points... #consulting #thesmallthings
Getting back into travel and wanted to see which airline you all think I should be loyal to and why from a points perspective? United and American always come in dead last in all the ratings.
Power has been out at hotel (Westin) for 2 hours and counting. How many points is this worth?
What was the complaint you filed and with who to get the most points? Or just the best story that still got you miles/points..
Starting the SFO->Miami travel next week. Flights are gonna be brutal but hey at least I get an extra night of hotel points since I pretty much have to fly Sunday afternoon.
In the hotel elevator with a middle-aged woman and her three kids ages 4-6 when the youngest says, "mommy, is that daddy?" and points directly at me. Don't think I've ever had a more awkward moment
Can I trade hotel points for beer?
Was doing some late night reading on the points guy blog. 447$ round trip to Tokyo from LAX, ORD, or BOS. I just booked my flight. Stoked. March - May 2016
Been doing this travel thing for awhile, but have never been aggravated enough to complain to an airline and try to get points. Well I'm ready now - what's best approach - AA?
Killed a spider in my Westin room. Remains are on the wall. Any points I can get for that? Kind of joking but kind of not
There is a positive correlation between your weight and the number of points/mileage you earn
SPG - they are trying to cover their back when someone got attacked outside their property but not physically hurt. SPG is not willing to offer any points or compensation for that. Any suggestions?
Ah now it did.

What gives you energy? Not including coffee.
I grew up in the projects then we moved to a $30k home in the hood when I was 5... I've seen the worst of life. Now 27, I just built a 5 bdrm, 3 bath home from the ground up... I could cry right now.
👏Delta VIP guy who escorted me past 700 angry JFK people cause of my status. At airport 15 min before departure? No problem. I am a jerk but a jerk who made the flight to 🌴🌞🍸🕶
What firms are hiring in the next two months? Trying to make the jump from fed to commercial. A consultant right now making 80K and have a Masters
Teacher: Tell the class what's your dad's job? 4yo: He's a Consultant. Teacher: What does he do at work? 4yo: Some people tell him to do things & then he tells other people to do those things 🤦♂️😂
I just accepted an offer at another big4 and I feel so blessed to be making $130k in LOCL as a 23 year old with less than 1.25 YOE. And I find it funny that I'm gonna be "senior" consultant/associate at my age and YOE. I don't know jack shit, and will completely understand if my clients/senior peers don't give me any respect at all. Thank you covid and the great resignation for this wonderous and hilarious opportunity.
