What do you guys think about reward cards. I know many love airline reward cards but how about hotel reward cards. I've read some think their not worth it anymore. I was thinking of applying for either the SPG Amex, Marriott VIsa or Hyatt Chase cards. 1st one because of its versatility and ability to transfer points to multiple airlines and I'm really like my amex gold thus far. Marriott Visa because of its partnership with United and I have the United Mileage Explorer Card however idk if i'd reach elite status with either of those programs (if you hit elite status on one u get it on the other). Hyatt only because it gives you elite status and free nights as well.
What i want to do with the card. I really just want to be able to get a couple of free nights here and there and maybe an upgrade. I'm at my first job and I do plan on starting to travel more however I'm not sure if I'd be traveling enough to hit 25 stays 50 nights or 75 nights or w/e the different amounts are to hit Elite Status. Short term goal: I'm planning a trip to Europe in the Summer probably late august to see if i can catch a Spurs Match. Already have 66k FFM's need 20k more and then gonna see if i can get a couple of free nights at a hotel.
