What do you think?

Citi Prestige 50k TY $450 AF $3k spend
Chase Marriott 80k Marriott $85 AF $3k spend
Chase Fairmont 2 nights AF waived 1st year $3k spend
Amex SPG Business 30k SPG AF waived 1st year $3k spend
Amex Delta Business 30k DL AF waived 1st year $1k spend

Any better suggestions on the amex front? I just threw in the Delta because I didn't want the SPG to be alone. I have personal SPG, Delta, ED, Hilton, and BGR. Not eligible for PRG, MB Plat, or Business Plat bonuses.

Hilton HHonors, I thought about the Surpass but its a higher spend ($3k as opposed to $1k on the Delta) and I believe there is an upgrade offer for the Surpass which I can do at anytime (not when I've gotta spend $12k on other cards) without a pull.
Citi Executive?
$7.5k spend would be tough for me especially on top of the other spending. Plus it doesn't have some of the other benefits of the Prestige like the airline credit and 4th night free (although it does have a better Admirals Club membership).

While not 100%, if you do the upgrade, you will not be able to get the bonus for the Surpass. Better to apply for it and then upgrade the other at a later time.

You mean if I upgrade now I won't be eligible for the bonus if I apply at a later time, but if I apply now, and I downgrade I would be able to get the upgrade bonus?

That is what i mean. If you have the regular Hilton, you do not need to downgrade, just upgrade that one later.

Would I be able to upgrade my regular Hilton while I have the Surpass or would I need to wait until I've cancelled or downgraded the Surpass to get the upgrade bonus?
