I agree- spreadsheets are easier. But it ain't so convenient to click off the page in order to view the chart. My idea is to keep everything here, and have everyone who is knowledgeable participate in keeping the info up-to-date.

I highly doubt too many people here have one.  As Dan puts it...
I find it hard to believe that anyone can justify the centurion's fees.  It's just a nice piece of wallet-candy.

Besides you still only get regular MR points for spending, which aren't nearly as valuable as SPG points...
It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.

Filled up the wiki a bit more.
Any suggestions for a new category- maybe additional bonuses or card features?
