I signed up for the Chase Sapphire card and the 40,000 point bonus for spending $3,000 in three months (I have a business trip coming up, so that will help). That's enough points for $400 in rewards or 40,000 United, Southwest, Hyatt, or Marriott points. I like flexible cards, the SPG Amex is another example, and I could use a new sign up bonus. I sign up for 4-6 cards a year depending on the offers to maximize my earning potential. Some card have good bonuses, but are poor regular earners, so they don't all become long term daily cards. Interestingly I haven't seen a negative impact to my credit score for having a number of short credit card histories. The points game is only if you don't carry a balance, it won't pay back if you owe finance charges.
