Citi Hilton to Amex Hilton Conversion - Dangit!

Re: Citi Hilton to Amex Hilton Conversion - Dangit!

I received it in the mail, but I didn't call to close the Citi card. I think though that you won't be receiving the Amex card if the account was closed. You might want to chat with an online rep with Amex/Citi.

Wait when does the Citi Hilton switch to Amex? When do I need to cancel by?

Re: Citi Hilton to Amex Hilton Conversion - Dangit!

I just saw this article and now I am reconsidering holding on to the reserve card. If I spend 10k on the reserve I get a free night. If I spend 15k after Jan 30th I get a second free night. The amounts of 10k & 15k overlap after Jan 30th, so I could hold on to the card and spend 15k after Jan 30th and get both the free night from the old citi promise and the free night from the new amex promise. I only got the reserve card a few months ago so I would have awhile to make the needed spend. Anyone else considering holding the card for this reason? I also have the amex surpass so i'll be PCd to this card and don't believe i'll be able to get the signup bonus in the future.

Re: Citi Hilton to Amex Hilton Conversion - Dangit!

Two free nights can be worth well over 1k depending on how you redeem them, but yea I wouldn't do it if I was planning on doing other apps. Still for someone who is going to stay in the garden and has a large amount of unbonused spend it could be worthwhile. I'm probably not going to go for it though upon reflection.

Re: Citi Hilton to Amex Hilton Conversion - Dangit!

I'm struggling with this as well!

 

My issue:  I have the Citi Hilton with no AF, but I also have the Amex Hilton with AF.  I was told my citi would transition to the Amex without AF and now have TWO amex hilton. Amex also told me i couldn't PC out of the amex hilton with no AF since i have the only other option already.  i'm pretty bummed out!
