I didn't see this posted anywhere but the 4 Points sheraton on 43rd and collins is showing sold out January and Februaury, I called them and they said theyre leaving marriott in december. Even though it wasn't a nice hotel, it has a special place in the hearts of many. It's a big loss to travelers on tighter budgets.

Meh. Good riddance

A point of view I didn't consider from a DOC poster.

Personally I think this is hilarious. These guys who are seasoned professionals, enlisted tons of people to help them bypass the rules that are designed to allow real collectors and individuals a chance to get 1 copy of this rare item.
They KNEW what the price was going to be, especially since they were already selling for 500+ well before they went live. They still offered people 200, when tons of other dealers (reputable ones) were offering 4-500 (and those guys were planning on reselling them also). The try to trade in this notion of, well won’t scam you so what we offer is great! Well, plenty of other people won’t scam, but offered people double or more for their item, instead of trying to seize even more of the profit.
The FACT is that if dealers are paying 500, they are selling it for even more, but PFS is upset because some people are choosing to not give it to them for 200 so that they can’t make an extra 300 per item that they shouldn’t have been allowed to get anyway because of the Mint rules?
People should honor their agreements for sure. However, enlisting a ton of people who know nothing about this market or collectibles in order to exploit their ignorance to make a colossal profit compared to competitors is not right either. PFS could easily have agreed to pay pay people a little more given the market, but instead they talk about “well once when a cheap item went down a few bucks, we ate the “loss!” Hardly the same as “we used you people to get around the rules to get 1000s of an item that a ton of actual individuals want, but couldn’t get because we cheated to get them en masse, and we are mad that we couldn’t sell them to those same people for a fortune because some people wanted to make a larger share of the profit instead of letting us pay them 100 profit and keep 400+.”
Sorry but I can’t really cry for them. When you are already engaged in a process designed to fundamentally cheat the system to enrich yourself, you give up the moral right to cry when some people get wise and cut you out.

My thoughts exactly. These folks knew good and well that they were low balling

Can you change your companion after a trip is booked, but before it is flown? So, if I have a trip booked on Sun-Weds morning with companion 1, can I fly on Weds night with companion 2, and book Weds night flight today?

Looking at Marriott hotels. I have a couple of free night certs to burn, so thinking about the W. Also, see lots of good things about the Sortis. Anyone stay at the W recently?
