I went ahead and bit. I think choice hotels are one of the few under-rated points currencies out there. I agree that on average their hotels are much more basic than your typical Marriott/Hilton/Hyatt chain hotel, but there are some amazing sweet spots with their awards. With the 40,000 points from the bonus I just booked 3 nights in a 2-bedroom suite at a hotel just outside a Northern California national park that's going for $250/night. It won't be fancy, but when traveling with kids, that kind of value is hard to beat.

To paraphrase the old game show, here's the 64,000 point question: if you have the card currently and cancel it, will Barclay give you the full bonus if you reapply before November 18 and comply with the spending requirements?

I think the more important question is what are the odds of getting approved with such a move. IMO, slim unless you are the Steve Jobs of recon, based on recent DPs.

And even without such a move, my 2018 record with new Barclays applications has been abysmal.
