Replacing SPG Amex with another card?
I do not stay often at SPGs but I had the card for my occasional stays. I recently got the sapphire reserve and do not see using this card anymore, but it is my only current Amex. Thoughts on switching this to a different Amex, preferably one without an annual fee?
Not sure if you can switch to a different card since youre moving from SPG to Amex MR but I’d suggest the Everyday card so you can earn transferable MR points and get a bonus when you make more than 20 transactions per month. However, you’d lose out on the current new card bonus if you do a product change. Have you asked about getting the annual fee waived when it posts?
I would probably also look at one of the Everyday cards, but agree about applying for the card to get the bonus and [I]later[/I] merging the credit lines.
The Delta cards also have that fantastic bonus right now, so I’d consider those too, though they’re certainly not great for everyday spend.
