Yea one thing that annoys me is that I recently passed the 4k spending in order to get the 50k rewards but I won't be able to access them for another 37 days and that really sucks. Next billing cycle basically.

With AMEX they were available immediately.

I have 65K UR points now; my bonus actually posted on my first statement. No idea what to do spend them on yet, but keep in mind they don't expire. I'm sure I'll come up with something. :D

They may not expire, but transfer partner award charts can be devalued.

Avoiding United flights, you might consider United partner awards (which I'm not very familiar with) and Hyatt stays.

Keep in mind there are many ways to earn and cheaply buy large numbers of IHG points. I think URs should serve a higher purpose.
Very useful: SchwabPlat, CSP, IHG, Costco (was AA Plat), Freedom, SPG, Prestige (retention)
Somewhat useful: Discover, ED (was EDP), BCE, Hyatt
SD with activity alerts, might close: Arrival and Brooks Bros

Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech, BofA Travel PH

The CSP is usually my go to card but when I apply for credit cards that's when I use it less. I use it mainly for eating out and travel expenses. I will be definitely keeping it for a long time unless they severely nerf the card.

Amex SPG 3/16

Chase Ink Plus Visa Sig 5/16
Chase Sapphire Reserve Visa Inf 2/17

Nope. I cancelled my CSP. I was spring cleaning the wallet and the sock drawer.
I ended up cancelling CSP, FHB Priority Rewards and Chase Marriott.
In my wallet:
AmEx PRG/ BoH Hawaiian Airlines WEMC / Chase Freedom /

In my sock drawer:
AmEx HHonors & BCE

What led you to cancel what you cancelled and keep what you kept?
Amex - BCP, Platinum, Business Gold
BoA - BankAmericard Cash Rewards
