Thanks on a side note I plan on staying at cks and remember you writing about doing ms by withdrawing were you charged the 5% or was it waived and did you take out a significant amount like 2 too 3k and were you able to change it back at the airport at a decent rate?

I didn't do it myself.  Someone on FlyerTalk posted about it and then already like a month later that they didn't allow him to do more than like $100 or something or maybe they charged a percentage, I can't remember.

Depends on hotel , when booked on 3rd party (or agent) you are looked at as a guest with no status and don't get points for the stay.

Possible, def a YMMV situation.

In my experience Hilton is stingy on upgrades and I never get them unless I ask.
I am diamond with 50+ paid nights this year.

I once asked at checkin to be located on the other side of the hotel bc the side next to the road is super loud.  Front desk acted like they were going above and beyond...

if you hit it off with the person at the front desk then you donít really need status

Does a reward certificate expire if I cancel the Aspire CC or does it remain active once it is issued?

Once issued it remains active until it's original expiration date, no matter what you do with the card.

Anyone know (or have a dp for) if I cancel my Amex surpass card, will my Gold status be canceled immediately or will I retain it until the end of the year?

I would take the sign up bonus out of the equation since you can open other cards as well.

I usually assume that hilton is worth 0.003 on the black market, maybe its more for a bigger account. So the question then becomes whether 150K UR is worth $2.1K+ (50K x 14 x .003)

Your missing the fact that you earn more then 14 HH per $
As a diamond member you earn additional 10 HH plus other promotions.

True
Breakdown is 10 points for base stay
but they cap you at earning on any stay 100k base so even if spend 50k only getting points for 10k of spend

You Will also get 10 points for being diamond

As well as what we the hilton promo at the time is (currently till Jan it's double points but if use a Hilton amex it's triple so it's 54 points per dollar).

So let's say it's  a double point promo (they have not announced q1 promo yet so this is just an example) you would earn 30 points (20 base + diamond) per dollar plus the 14 points  from amex (which is not capped) so if my math is correct you would get 300k hilton from stay + 700k from amex + sign up bonus.

Hi first time using HH. on the site, its not showing me any points options. is it bec my point balance is 0? or is there something else? (when searching and i check off the points box, it just shows me the cash rate.
