I’m 2 nights short of hitting 80 nights at Hyatt by end of the year. Is it worth booking 2 night $160 total for extra 10K points?

Go away for the weekend on points; you'll get the two nights and have a nice getaway. I just used a certificate that was about to expire to get me my 80th night

I have the Sapphire Reserve (it seems I'm supposed to refer to it as the CSR here). And I have always been resistant to juggling multiple cards. But as my grocery spend increases I'm suddenly aware of this whole pairing concept.

Is it accurate that if I get the free Flex Unlimited I can get 5% on groceries (for a year), 3% on drugstores, and 1.5% on everything else, AND I can transfer those points to my CSR account and effectively get 7.5%, 4.5%, or 2.25% back on my spend?
