Anyone have the Marriott Bonvoy credit card and feel like it’s a waste? I can’t even use the annual free night because the points has to be exactly 35k!

I mean right now I feel like it's a waste since I haven't traveled in over a year, but any other time it was the best card for racking up points points points

Certs are not very useful in USA, but I have been finding good use overseas, for example, several category 5 hotels at Athen Greece, where cash price is over 250 💶 per night.

You can use the free night on any hotel that is 35k points or less.

I use it and love it

If that’s the case should I just book the 36k or are the odds a 21k becomes available again high?
