I don't think I've ever seen anything about churning rewardsnetwork dining programs.

I'm thinking this might make sense. They all seem to have periodic enrollment bonuses.

We don't eat out that often so I don't see us using their network more than 12 times a year to get to 5 points per dollar. I'm wondering if there are any restrictions on cancelling and signing up new. ???
