Right now, I have the Southwest Rapid Rewards card because a) when I fly the family, Southwest works best for us (but travel for work is AA). I have 500K+ SW points. Also Hilton Diamond with about 300K points (had more but just redeemed a bunch for a family trip). I hear about the Chase Sapphire Preferred, the AA Citi card that has a big annual fee but includes a lounge membership. My goals are being met (free or cheap travel for family trips), but I wonder if I'm leaving money on the table and could be getting more out of my points earnings. Any suggestions on what I should do differently or change with my strategy?
