I'm trying to keep it simple in that I use my CIC for 5x at Staples/Office on VGC and CF for the same on 5x when possible. I've cleaned up the few Marriott points AMEX points on a couple recent stays. I'm thinking of closing my CIU and applying for another one down the road. Because there is still definitely some excitement in getting a new card with a new bonus.Conversation starter: do you value simplicity at all? Do you think you would earn as many rewards with fewer cards but more focused spending or do you enjoy the chase of new bonuses? Do you value not having to log into several different accounts and remembering due dates or do you think this is just part of the trade-off?
