If I get the Ritz card (possibly upgrade from Marriott card) I'll receive automatic Gold and to get upgrades and other things when I stay at Marriott properties also, correct?
With the $200 airline credit and upgrades, the upgrade to the Ritz card may be worth the annual fee, but I see the Ritz card doesn't offer a free night every year.
