Been waiting for a boost on this one! Come to papa. Wait. Maybe I should finish the spend on the other two Amex cards and the Citi exec I just picked up. Dang.

But spouse's dance card is free.... ;D

Edit: reports are the deal lasts until July 31.

While may not be available for all, my wife had an upgrade option from the regular Hilton (40,000 card) to the Surpass for another 50,000 i believe. Not a bad deal.

There used to be a link running around somewhere that made it available to all.

What am I missing here? I've been sitting on about 150k Hilton since their severe deval a few years ago... I'm hard pressed to even find redemptions worth about $0.005 making the value of 85k $425. Hardly a bonus to get excited over?

I hear, but it seems that those are exceptions.... In general it won't get you much more than half a cent a piece.

True, but an extra $425 in value added to your next mbm with Amex isn't too bad.

It depends. I used points last year to stay at the Phx Pointe Squaw Peak (horrible name...) last December. The "resort" is old and by many standards, "meh."

On the other hand, a suite at Squaw Peak offered holiday workspace for my spouse and I, outdoor fun for my 5 year old, and a chance to mellow out away from the family holiday madness. In my situation, Hilton points are valuable because there are fun properties near my young family. Of course, I eyeball the SPG properties in the area too....

Keep in mind this also makes you eligible for the bonus on the Surpass if you haven't received it before. Better to get Surpass first, then regular Hilton and hope for upgrade offer.

you mean this one?

I think recently people have been saying that those don't work anymore unless you actually received an invite. Anybody confirm?
