Worth getting one of the Marriott cards to hit Titanium? Don’t travel a ton personally (not for work) and would probably use my Chase card for flexibility in redemption but the Bold or Boundless both seem decent

The status doesn’t do much to be honest. You’ll get more points but if you’re not traveling for work I wouldn’t go out of my way

I do travel a good amount for work, just not for personal stay (or I stay in AirBnBs)

There’s really only 2 perks to the titanium status compared to platinum. The free night reward and the extra points on Marriott spend

I’d just do the math and see if it’s worth while. But unless you’re traveling a lot in the first place, you’re not going to benefit much.

Is there a downside to getting the Bold then? Isn’t it just basically a free night and more points?

Hi, I am planning to move to UK and currently working in Sweden. I am looking for companies who could provide a sponsorship visa. Any referral would help me. My key skills: system design, Python, openstack, aws, GKE, kubernetes, dockers, Terraform, databases, DevOps, Git etc.; I have ten years experience and would be happy to discuss more. Any pointers would greatly help me.

They should either step up their game and become helpful or the company should start allowing us to book our own tickets.
