I dig it. The purple Discover looks good in person, I want to see if this differs at all in person from the render above.

Don't forget the AF hike from $65 to $95.

I've thought of getting the card for the signup bonus, but I don't stay at Starwood properties nearly often enough to keep the card in the long run.

I've not used it for a hotel stay yet, just minimum spend and a few negligible transactions since then.

I've only had one hotel stay since I got the card, and ended up booking a Hilton property through Hotel Tonight because I got a good cash rate.
