Tomorrow last day of 85k.  Any particular reason this card doesn't seem so popular?

Since hilton butchered their program, it makes it harder to get good value out of the points.

ya but the cards also give 3-12x on spend which can be much better than the 1-5x spend

3x .4cpp = 1.2cpp, which is less than MR/UR/SPG/TYP etc, that's for base spend, it's the same for most categories (you can do better with other cards), so unless you're spending tons of $$ at Hilton...

One nice thing Hilton has going for them is they have Amex and Citi competing for their CoBrand business.

Would the upgrade work if you already had or have the surpass card?

IIRC it's got the same standard language for the bonus (not eligible if you got the bonus before). Can anyone that did it recently chime in?

It sure sounds like that's our answer, that if u get bonus once you won't get it again via upgrade.
