702rugbyref, happiness is starting the year with 56 nights in the bank, lifetime platinum in hand, and a strong sense of optimism that Marriott is going to give us another level to shoot at enjoy in 2018! Good stuff! Happy New Year!
702rugbyref You can supercharge your points by getting a Marriott Rewards CC from Chase. You'll get 5X points on all your Marriott spending, plus points on other spending as well.
I got both the personal and business...chaching but right now need to hit my spending limits on my AA Silver Card so I can get the buddy ticket, airline $$ spent and points ($50k =$6k towards hitting airline needs). Will be done by August and then everything goes on MR card for points and bonus nights.
Happiness is not not having the sinking feeling of seeing the counter re-set to 0 for the first year since i was a silver. I start this year with 33 carry over, which is a lot for one who has retained status by the skin of my teeth for the last four years and is strictly a leisure traveler.The carry over gives me the flexibility to try a SPG or two as well.
Happiness is being a 'double platinum'. I'm lifetime platinum and now my MVC ownership level also provides platinum. I should get a special badge for this. Since most of my vacation stays are at MVC resorts, I also don't have to worry about resort fees, exhorbitant local taxes, or parking.
phctourist, In addition to your wonderful recovery, you were very open with your struggles with this terrible disease on here on insiders and I hope we helped you keep your hope. I sent off 100 dollars to the Canadian Cancer society tonight and I challenge our insiders to do the same for their country.
