I'll probably drop the MR program, but I think having both a CSP and Arrival+ could actually be pretty good. I have a lot of random-category spending, and the Arrival+ would be good there. The CSP could be used for dining, some travel, and then used to book travel with transfer partners.
I've looked over old email receipts, and Delta, US Airways, and IHG cards could have saved me a lot of money over the last few years. Unfortunately, I'd probably get the inflexible travel cards and then never fly/stay with those companies again. So flexibility really does matter for me, practically speaking.
But maybe two general-travel cards would be excessive. On a long-term basis, without bonuses, having 2 could be hard to justify.
Very useful: SchwabPlat, CSP, IHG, Costco (was AA Plat), Freedom, SPG
Somewhat useful: Discover, ED (was EDP), BCE, Hyatt
Plan to PC: Prestige to DC
SD with activity alerts, might close: Arrival and Brooks Bros
Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech, BofA Travel PH
