SPG Business card - why did I get this?

The other day I checked out a possible hotel booking, and realized my SPG points are

worth about 3/10 of a cent to me. Why should I even bother with such a card?

I dunno. Back in the day SPG points were great with the airline transfers and the SPG business card in particular was great because it gave me lounge access at all sheratons when my status would otherwise not entitle me to the lounge. I rarely stayed in sheratons but I did use the sheraton in the Frankfurt airport a couple of times when taking the early morning Singapore airlines flight back to JFK. Was really convenient to have the card for lounge access then, although I got rid of it like a year or two ago.
