13 years Amex/SPG and this is the proverbial last straw. With $75K in yearly spend, I generate $1K + in vendor fees for Amex -- yet they feel compelled to kick this old dog. It's time we vote...

There's been a fair amount of analysis showing MR points are worth .5-.8 cents, so for a 400K purchase from MR, I'd be overpaying $1.8K-$3K. Way too much IMHO.

Which rebate cards give you 2% back? Is this on everything?? If that's true, then getting SPG gold via spend, as in my case, might not be a good idea.
