What sort of rewards are you looking for? Have you compared the redemption options? Since I mainly fly United, CSP was a better fit for me since UR points transfer 1:1 to United.

Subjective matter. CSP's one of my primary cards. Whether a card sucks or not depends on how well it suits the individual -- same as any other card.
Based on your other comments on the CSP, either you're confusing it with another card (Slate is vertical and cannot combine points with Freedom) or you need to learn to validate your sources and corroborate.

Many can and do carry 2 or more different Chase accounts that cannot combine. Another subjective matter.

Other differences that sometimes draw complaints are the lack of embossed numbers and that the numbers are on the back. That said, I'm not sure why the willgatlin finds the vertical design really annoying. Card work the same in my experience regardless of the orientation of the design.
