I’ve been Gold for more than 4 years through various status matches. The only benefit is earning more points on your stay. I can’t remember a time that I’ve been upgraded. You can get Diamond with...

It’s almost comical. The only reason I joined the CC program was because of the huge amount of points I earned staying at their brands 5 years ago. I did several mattress runs and gave away rooms to...

MS is a young man’s game and I’m getting older. I stopped when Bluebird flew away. My time is more valuable than completing the hoops needed these days. Plus the costs have risen too high. The value...
