Marriott and Me - A love story

I freakin love the Marriott, and I want to shout it from a rooftop. Due to a major SNAFU at the hotel I was planning on staying at in Savannah last week, I had to make same-day reservations, and I decided to go with old faithful and stay at the Marriott again. And it was, of course, amazing. I love their service, their beds, and pretty much everything about them. Even their coffee is pretty decent, and their bartender can make a good martini.

Why am I boring my ghost readers and wasting my own time? Because now that I'm out of debt and rockin my finances, I've decided to do what countless yuppies and travel hackers  (same group) have done for years, and get a Marriott Rewards card just for the benefits, and because it's black metal and I'm 5.

Here's the way I see it. I don't use cash most of the time anyway, and using my debit card gets me exactly zero things, other than a way to avoid getting charged interest. Meanwhile, I really like checking out new places, not paying full price, and acting classy. At this point, I'm responsible enough with credit and hopefully savvy enough to game the shit out of the system and reap the rewards.


With any luck, this will work out great and then I can pick up another card for airline travel, and maybe switch between the two and have all my travel covered. How cool would that be?

Anyways, brave new world!
