DW and I were both targeted for upgrade offers from HH surpass to aspire.

I arbitrarily opted to upgrade my card but not hers, and I've since completed the spend and received the bonus.

Now that the offer has expired, I notice that DW is only a few $k short of $60k spend in 2019 -- meaning that she could've received an extra weekend night upon hitting $60k (whereas I've only spent ~$20k on the card).

Hopefully they'll re-target her before 2019 ends.

Multiple DPs of this not working so dont feel so bad. Then again multiple data points of a lot of funny things happening with upgrades so  :-\

I assumed the count to $60k would reset upon product changing but the graphic online suggests otherwise

except if you click through it will tell you you received it already. at least in my case. Either way this one has not been so clear cut so dont feel too bad. Im still trying to nail down the exact science going on here.

Free night cert for spending $60k if you already have the $15k in spend cert on aspire.

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

The reason it is so funny is because I can see myself doing the exact same thing.
