I know but it's still a lot for me. I could easily do it intentionally but that's a pain to some degree. I also don't want too many more cards. I don't particularly intend to open any cards that I don't theoretically want to keep long term.
It's a minor pain, and I only make sure I get the 30 in high-MR-earning months. I did that when I paid my car insurance, for example.
I wasn't sure how I'd like the 30-transaction consideration when I got the card. I'm okay with just "topping off" some months with a few trivial transactions. If I had to do it every month after the Costco switch, I might PC (if permitted) to the no-AF ED (a backup plan I liked when getting EDP). Fortunately, I'll have two months of Costco-less EDP use to decide how I feel about the spending change.
