I got this credit card [review] earlier this week. I was really really excited because 1) I <3 American Express, 2) the points!
I realized that this is a sign that I've reached yuppie-dom. Then I wanted to cut myself. But in a really nice hotel I could now get with MY DAMN POINTS. And I would fly there for like half the cost with my transferable points to almost all major airlines (I will totally shill out for points and the promise of more points).
