Re: Upgrade to Surpass

Re: Upgrade to Surpass

50k Hilton points for $75 is a good deal anyways. You can always downgrade again after the first year to the no AF version.

Re: Upgrade to Surpass

I went to upgrade and it gave me an error telling me I needed to wait 24 hours.

 

I also think the 50k points are worth the AF, but I will try reconing the AF.

 

Who should I contact and what should I say? I am generally good at reconing, but I am not sure how I would explain why the AF should be waived. I chose to upgrade and got a lot of points for it, now I want me AF back...haha

 

Maybe some great story about being a great customer, and how I will more than make up the annual fee to them.

You're already getting 50k points for $75, and you think you should have the AF waived too? If you get a card that has an AF on it, that's part of the terms that you accept. I see so many people who try and argue their way out of it. It's already a really good deal.

Re: Upgrade to Surpass

My advice is if AF cannot be waived, then keep Surpass for a year and downgrade before second AF.
