Oh the heartbreak. After years of proudly pulling out my fancy stainless steel black Marriott credit card, I resisted the invitation to pay more for (IMHO) marginal benefits to upgrade to the super-duper new Chase card. A couple of weeks ago I received my new standard Marriott replacement. To my horror, its plebian PLASTIC!!!! How can I ever show my face in anything more upscale than a Fairfield Inn, even if I am Lifetime platinum? Have others been equally heartbroken?.
