Gold earns in a scheme (MR) which is flexible in terms of which reward you take. I frequently use my MRs for hotel stays, and my single biggest transfer to an airline wasn’t Avios either.

There’s a non-terrible rate for foreign spend, bonuses for various spend targets, limited lounge access (which is perfect for me as a frequent business and status flier I only need card-based access a few times a year), I think the insurance might be better too, but I have a more comprehensive policy elsewhere so I’ve never read the fine print.

But for me its the flexibility of MR that’s the big win. Suddenly need some points in Marriott, or Star Alliance? No problem.
