The cards in my wallet rotate each month depending on if I get approved for a new credit card, or if I'm trying to maximize a 5x category.
Tax payments are due in less than a month, so I added the Amex Hilton Aspire card get a return on spend for paying taxes.
Amex Hilton Aspire
The Amex Hilton Aspire card has a $450 annual fee, but it gives you automatic Hilton Diamond status and 100,000 points. I usually recommend waiting for an increased offer, but I have some bills coming up that I'm paying via Plastiq.
Also, I have a redemption in mind for the points and free weekend night, so the timing is right for me.

Amex SPG Business
The Amex SPG Business card has an increased signup bonus of 30k points (offer ends 3/28/18). One of my goals is to take an Emirates Airlines first class flight, and SPG points are the best way to achieve this.
The Amex SPG Business card is my equivalent to the Chase Freedom Unlimited for non-category spending.
