it's just fun for some people, for instance people who already bought a house, cars and no big shopping left for a few years, they can app for anything and everything and not worry about their credit loss. If you have the ability ot hit 800+ you can app for anything you want you won't drop below 760. There's reward chaser couples who can take 20k+ per person each year in reward bonuses (it's been done, with loop holes) but realistically $5,000 in rewards a year is not too unheard of if that's all your doing is chasing points. so just a game for some people.


This.  Some of us don't want to be in the garden.  I have pulled in 100k Ultimate rewards points (redeemed for over $11k in flights), 65k Hilton points, and $120 cash back just in the last 4 months.  I plan to grab another 100-240k Hilton points, 100k American Airlines miles, 50k United Miles, 50k Starwood points and 50-90k Ultimate Rewards points in the first 6 months of next year.
