I have the chance to convert 170,000 Marriott points to cash at their "going rate" of .8 cents to be $1360. Would you do it? My question effectively is, if I have time and location flexibility, is it likely I could find a sweet deal to get more than that amount of value from those points?
You guys are making me soft! Checked into a Sheraton and found a used bar soap in the shower. First thought: how many points? Then I reminded myself that I make mistakes at work too. Moving on!

What are the best type of points to include when updating your resume from an account perspective?
Is Delta really that much better than UA or am I stuck in a "grass is greener" mentality? Home airport is IAH and not sure it's worth it to switch (can challenge for Platinum)
Feelings don't validate a point. Reading/Research matters. Before you open your mouth to discuss any matter, make sure your points are informed by verified data. This will help you everywhere.

Hi guys! This may seem like a generic question, but what do you think is better- working in PwC or the startup/ industry? Lot of points to consider like: -Work from home - Flexible work timing -brand name -higher salary -different speaking language -less work pressure etc.
Squawk Box guest says we will definitely return to business travel exactly like 2019, but it’s going to “take some time.” I’m trying to decide whether I am bringing my team back to the office in full or hybrid models or staying WFH. Tell me what I should do but don’t start with “I work more at home!” Or “I’m so much more productive at home” because even if true, the data isn’t showing that TEAMS are more productive
Curious if anyone has any data points on how much they spend on clothing annually. I probably spent 5% of total earnings and I feel that’s a bit high. Anyone else have something to compare to?

Has anyone here work or worked for Better.com/Mortgage? Just received an offer from them (NYC), but I’ve heard mixed things about culture and it looks like there’s a lot of turnover amongst C-Suite/leadership

Anyone in CLT want to grab beer and food at sycamore brewery tonight? Leaving from Meridian at 6 to head there
I’m convinced that while practice does help, case studies are fundamentally designed to evaluate your critical thinking skills and IQ — which are immutable qualities. No matter how many mock cases I do, I can’t seem to figure out how they work and therefore can’t crack any interviews (10+ tries). I don’t think I’m as smart as I once thought 😕😕

Please comment.
