I agree that it only makes sense to use the card for purchases you normally make. Otherwise, you are just spending more money.
I have a CSP and I love it. I'm not going to lie and say that the aesthetics of the card don't have an appeal to me. I also value that I can transfer the points to Southwest. I fly them all the time. The first year is free, so I will do an analysis of the benefits. Still, I love plunking that card down for a payment. Combined with the Freedom, it works well. I could see getting an Ink card to enhance earnings, though.
