Is there any word on when the new Chase Marriott CCs are coming out?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

The better question is which offer will be better.

Do you mean Starwood vs Marriott, or which of the Marriott cards?

Ah. Well if I already have the old, so I'm paying an AF each year, would it make sense to cancel it and get the new? For an extra $10/year you get a better free night, and 2ppd on purchases, plus the 100k signup bonus.

I guess that will depend on what the upgrade offer is.

Also depends on how you value your 5/24 slots. Upgrade won't eat one up, but also won't get as many points.

Right.

With the 1 free night cert, can you use it for any type of room, or only the cheapest type?

just wondering in a case when one doesn't really have a redemption in mind but will likely travel within the next year- the best package would be the cat 8 (120K spg)?
