My usual Marriott spending pace is one $400-500 stay every 2-3 weeks. (Two to three nights in a mainline hotel plus some incidentals minus a Premium Pounds.) So the investment income loss even if I buy the $2,000 card is pretty negligible. We're talking about ten to fifteen bucks tops for the 28-inch bag.
