Yup $595 for a card? It used to be one benefit outweighed a cards fee. Now, I often have a hard time justifying it even when all benefits are added to the equation.
100%, I have been paying the fees on 2 BP cards for five or 6 years, no retention for me ever, but the good offers used to make up for the fees , and AA GCs etc. I also have 2 Gold cards , they raised the fees, with some nonsense dining credit , supermarket x 4 but capped at $25000 , A business Gold that became useless to me once we do not have the shipping volume we used to do. I'll keep some of their cards, but for MS nothing beats having a few Inks and Freedoms .
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.

Will closing my Starwood/Bonvoy card effect the expiration of my points or their ability to transfer to other reward programs?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Where do I see if the free night has posted?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

My AF is coming up on my SPG Biz, has anyone quickly used the free night, and then downgraded/shut down card before 30 days? Does that work?
