Thankyou, UR, and venture points are good if you need to get a flight or spend to keep your airline status. When you book a flight with those points the airline sees it as a normal paid ticket and will give you whatever the spend/miles/segments it is based on fare class.

Yep, also when you book with UR.

Ink Biz
CSP
Freedom

Where should I be daily driving? I've been using the Freedom mostly but the annual fees are coming due soon on the other two. Need to use or lose on the CSP and Ink unless one of you smart points getters knows better.

I would suggest waiting until XT responds before you do anything. Any other response is just noise I’ve noticed ITT.

Ink or CSP. Freedom only for 5x if you are grandfathered in on that.

Tired of getting turned down because I've applied for too many in a year. Credit score is great! Payments are never late! WTF, mate!

Do you guys think I should start not making the full payments on my other cards so they think they can make more money off of me?

That isn't how that works.  Most places have a set number of hard pulls that no one would get approved for.  You just gotta wait until some inquiries fall off.

I'm grandfathered. Rolled everything to the Ink based on the different multipliers. Most of my bills are fuel, dining, and communications. Ink rules it. I'll shift around if the 5X hits a category I use.

I think I’m facing being put out of my place for 3 weeks for some renovations. What are the major chains’ best large suite or extended stay hotel options for which I could bank a lot of points? There’s a nearby IHG Staybridge that looks decent. I’d love to find an adequate Wyndham brand option. While the hotel here would probably be shitty, it’d get me a shitload of points to use for what’s the best* hotel in Victoria next summer.

Best = dog-friendly, attached good summer bar, best location for getting to places I’d party at

I almost exclusively stayed at Super 8s with my dad growing up.  We stayed at nice place on vacation to San Diego in HS, but that was it. When we went on road trips for work or to Colorado with my dad that was almost all Super 8. He had a catalog in his truck and we’d just call the next Super 8 when he got tired. I didn’t even know there were nicer hotels for a long time. I just thought they were all a different brand of Super 8.
I got a guy on the other line about some white walls

It has to be in British Columbia.  The point of that trip is to avoid white trash American fireworks the first half of July.

See, I'm hoping that between forced Wichita trips and maybe this forced homelessness that I can get so many paid-for stays at shitty Wyndham properties that I'll get a few extra free nights at the elite Days Inn in Victoria, B.C. next July.  There'd have been no chance otherwise that I'd voluntarily be staying at that many american travelodges and super 8's and crap.  I'm actually thinking of getting a Wyndham credit card just to start churning points for these annual July B.C. runs.
