Experimenting with Circular Polarizer

I am trying to decide if it was worth getting one. What are your experiences with them?

I notice in the above 2 photos that the one with the circular polarizer blends the colors better; the transitions are smoother. It also reduces the highlights significantly. You can especially see this on the house.

Below are several more photos of snow using and not using the circular polarizer. I don’t like it on the snow because it takes a pure white snow and makes it look dingy. While it eliminates the glaring highlights, it seems to warm up the color temperature too much and puts a slight yellow tinge to it. What do you think?
