Yes, surpass does so even though your get 12ppd it's better to save the 3% and use the Citi Hilton reserve at 10ppd.  Hilton TA charges in USD but the WA charges everything in shekels.  If you're a Diamond, register for the double points promotion and use one of these cards, should get about 30% of what you spend back in points for a future stay.
