You could reasonably get Titanium for ~$8k if you use the 5 x ENC and hold one of the credit...

Used the Aspire $250 for an AS Lounge Membership last year, good deal for a 75K @ $350.

Definitely used it > 20 times thanks to AA lounges being in network.

Great CBA.

I do think you're undervaluing the Cat 1-4 @ $100 though, it's not difficult to get $250+ value out that night - The Confidante in Miami and The Grand Reserve in PR are both bookable...

I mean if you stay in places where they charge resort fees (such as Hawaii), then having Globalist could mean a $280 saving (Andaz, $40/night). If you do a week like that only once a year while you...

Asia seems to be very much a sweet spot in terms of rates and elite recognition.

A strict reading of the terms makes it look like the ENC deposit will be based on the status held in 2020, thus unless you were Titanium it'd default to what your 2020 status was...
