And if you do a stopover and fly the second half with a different metal?
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

just saw this from dan, but he doesn't explain why everyday spending won't be a good idea, in that card.
isn't 3/4 Hilton points worth more then 1.025 [spg value]
?

Still doesn't beat a card like SP (on travel or dining) or SPG, even for 6x on groceries.

HHonors can be bought outright for .49cpm, and their redemption rates don't come close to, say, Hyatt.

Hilton is selling points today for .495 cents and they're generally worth less than half a cent.
SPG sells points at the cheapest for 2.8 cents, though more realistically they're worth 2.2-2.3 cents or so.
You do the math.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
