Sad, because I renewed my Global Entry on August 9th, and it is still showing “pending review” more than 2 months later.  I’ve heard anecdotally that it may take at least 4 months now.  I paid the $100 renewal fee, and already had it reimbursed by my credit card long ago, so just waiting to see what happens next.  Fortunately, mine doesn’t expire until next June 2020!

Click to view contentI can’t vouch for its accuracy but this image has been posted on Flyertalk indicating the different offers that Marriott has decided to allocate to those who manage to unlock the second part. Note that if this follows previous unlocking bonuses you’ll not be getting a choice, one of these offers will be allocated to you and that’s what you’ll end… (Show more)

Just arrived at the above mentioned hotel and was looking forward to something to eat and a couple of drinks in the lounge as a Plat member but how disappointed I am with it. My wife and I went up to the lounge and the food offering was chicken wings or meat balls (no sauce) so very dry. We were greeted by a nice gentleman who asked if we would… (Show more)

Just a question:  What, exactly, am I supposed to do with a heavy, metal, card that says Lifetime Titanium on it?  I couldn't even pass a metal detector with this thing.  I am happy that they chose to recognize their top elite lifetime status members, but I prefer the useful gifts, like the cord carrier they gave away or the dual charger.  Anyone… (Show more)

Click to view contentThis is essentially a follow-up to my blog 2018: Final Year of SPG as We Know It!      Last year represented “The Year of the Merge”. This year represents “The Year of Hope”, only because I’m hopeful that Marriott will do whatever it takes to improve service levels across the spectrum.  Elites are leaving in droves, exploring other brands or… (Show more)

Click to view contentThis is silliness, but I’m collecting key cards from every Marriott brand, then framing the collection or creating an art piece! By year-end 2019 I will have been to 28 of 30 Marriott portfolio brands. If I’m offered the “elite member” key card at check in, I ask to see what the regular key card looks like to see if I already have it.   Most cards… (Show more)

I am about to receive the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless card.  Will I get the annual 15 elite night credits in this calendar year (i.e. 2019)?  After reading the terms, I wasn't sure if I get them within 60 days or if I wouldn't get them until next year around March 2020.     Also, do these elite night credits count towards the lifetime nights count?

Click to view contentWhat an experience!!!  I'm just back from a week at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta (AIBF), an extended stay at the Albuquerque Marriott Pyramid hotel, and all of it ties into a not-really-a-mini-TIPPLE story....    Oh, and I took some pictures.  OK, I took a LOT of pictures, but more on that below. (Apologies if this post loads… (Show more)
