Citi Hilton to Amex Hilton Conversion - Dangit!

So yep it is official I might already be shafted from the Citi to Amex Hilton conversion.  I called in a week or two ago to cancel my Citi hilton card once it was confirmed by Citi that cards were going to Amex.  Called that day an axed it.. Guess what I got in the mail today?  Paperwork from Amex with all the terms of my conversion to their Amex card.  Hopefully since I cancelled it they don't still plan on sending me a Hilton card to me?  They wasted no time on grabbing all the customers they could and sealing the deal with Citi behind our backs thanks Citi Smiley Sad...  

 

So what are all your thoughts even though I cancelled the Citi Hilton card will I be getting the Amex card or will my cancellation propogate so Amex doesn't open an account for me with them?  It isn't suppose to happen till the end of January so one would hope they got more up-to-date info from citi prior to that.  They gave me the APR and all the other terms and conditions about 10-20 pages of crud I just threw in the drawer as didn't want to read it all.  As far as I am concerned my ACCOUNT IS CLOSED AND HOPEFULLY WILL NOT BE WItH AMEX.  Whether Amex thinks this is the case I have no clue.  That would put me at 5 revolvers with Amex and about 70k in credit with them.  I wanted to leave a revolver open for the future and also CL available if there is ever another revolver I want with Amex.  

 

Anyone else receive this today?

The letter states that if you close your Citi Hilton cc before the conversion then you will not be issued an AMEX Hilton cc. What I find odd is that you didn’t take the time to read the letter but did take the time to post your question here. lol It’s all in the letter they sent.

Thanks for explaining.  I type 100 words per minute approx so only took about 1 minute at tops to write the post where-as I didn't feel like reading 10 pages or whatever it was from Amex after a 10 hour day at work.  Just not my idea of fun.   Thanks for the advise/thoughts thoughSmiley Happy

I also fear overexposure with AMEX. Currently 2 revolvers at 56k and a Platinum. My Citi Hilton is 36k. That would be a lot in credit with AMEX and I don't see them going for it. 

Amex Delta Platinum 6k | Barclaycard Commerce 15k | US Bank Cash+ 18.5k | Barclaycard Arrival+ 20k | Citi Aadvantage Platinum 22k | Capital One Venture 32k | Lowes 35k | Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve 36k | Discover It 37.8k | Bank of America BBR 45k | Amex EDP 50k | Chase Marriott 67k | Amex Platinum NPSL

Totally get that! I don’t like to read at all and it was a chore just to read through that novel they sent in the mail. My comment was totally harmless..... just joking with ya a bit!

I find it "odd" that you're slapping his hand for it, lol.  No one has time to read read that non-sense..
