Topic Wiki

I'm trying to summarize success stories mentioned in this thread.
From @TC610
It never hurts to ask - retention is a big YMMV.  If you don't like the offer given to you when you call for retention, ask for a better one.  Scan through the thread (use the search bar - reading through 130+ pages of posts can be time consuming) to see what others have been offered. Please post what you've got if its better then whats in the WIKI

Same here
Common sense is not a gift, it is a punishment.
Because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

Haven't had a retention offer on the Amex Bonvoy personal card since Nov 19. Rep says he sees it often with this card, and the offer actually comes from Marriott. I never knew that and I wonder if it's DROPR. Anyone know? If so, would be another Marriott devaluation.
