A little different slant, perhaps. My wife and I fly typically twice a year. I got the AmEx Delta Gold for the advanced boarding, free checked bags and the sign-up bonus. We don't put everyday spending on it, so I'm essentially getting discounted checked bags in the long term.
But, since we don't absolutely count on having the card available on a continual basis like I would with an everyday points/cash earning card like my BCP, I'll use the Delta card for situations such as a sit-down restaurant where the odds of having the information stolen are much higher (card out of sight). That way, if it gets compromised, waiting for a week or two to get a replacement is generally not an issue.
