That is where I'm getting at. We all focus so much on points, I was just doing a little self-reflection of what it actually means. $10K-$15k/year is nice, but it definitely comes with a price being away all the time. The # is not mind boggling when thinking about flying/staying in a hotel every week.

I RAKE in SPG points by using the card and just maximizing. Prob get about 200K a year or more.

Depends on the location and how far you travel. I routinely get about 150,000 miles a year in airline points, 80,000 points a year from hotel, 12,000 points a year on car, and 90,000 points a year from AMEX.

We are required to use our Corp AMEX, or I would do the same thing.

PwC1, how do you only get 80k hotel points? With marriot, I get 12-20k/wk, at SPG, I get between 6-12k/wk

Id say it's ~$10k in travel rewards

Check that nomad guy post

P2 - are those your weekly accruals for 3 night stay at either? Seems high... 20k/week for Marriott? 12k/ SPG. Even the lower limits seems high.

At 10 pts per dollar spent plus platinum bonus, staying in Manhattan. Yes, 20k per week

Just received cousin's invite to her wedding and it's on a Sunday. It's not necessarily a destination wedding but is in a city that neither she nor her family, nor her partner's family lives, so everybody has to fly + get hotels. I'm annoyed because I think it's a but disrespectful to your guests to make them all travel and do it on a Sunday so people have to take time off work Monday in order to attend. I know I don't have to attend, but shouldn't it be convenient for guests?
