They even have an "adults only" pool, which is pretty nice....

For me, the difference between Marriott and Hilton cards is that I can get Hilton diamond status just by my annual spending, but no matter how much money you spend on the Marriott card you can only get their top status from nights spent in the hotel. ...
| Money Talk|| re: Hotel/Travel CC -Amount of points to redeem with Hilton Rewards card? - hedgediver on 6/29/12 at 8:58 am|
You accumulate points wherever you spend money. There are different levels of "points per dollar spent" depending on where you spend it. If i remember correctly, when my wife got her card, the standard rate is 3 points per dollar, with certain expenses (gas, groceries) getting 6 points per dollar an...

Every month you get points credited to your Hilton HHonors account based upon the amount of money you spent on your CC the previous month. Then you just go on to Hilton's website and book a room using your points rather than cash. If you plan on going during a prime holiday or something, book early ...

My wife has it and we love it. Points accumulate quickly, plus if you are staying at a Hilton you get tons of bonus points during the year. My wife typically accumulates about 4-7 free nights per year - easily enough to justify the $75 annual fee....

The fact that this is their first profit quarter has absolutely nothing to do with it being on the "low side" or "high side". I'm pretty sure 2.8 billion in a quarter is one of the best quarters they have had ever. Also, a lot of that profit comes from requiring less loan loss reserves. Fannies prob...

Yeah the logic is stupid as shite because the govt wrote the bailout like that. Both Fannie and Freddie have to borrow additional funds to pay the dividend if they don't have enough cash, which just increases the dividend in future quarters.
And to the OP, Freddie hasn't released ther results yet,...

I would say it absolutely benefits your career. The extra work may sometimes suck, but it can certainly open many career opportunities for you right out of college.
As far as CPA/CIA goes, if you have already passed the exams but don't have the experience yet that is certainly a plus for you. Mos...
