Approved Amex Hilton Honors!

Hey All-

Got approved for Amex Hilton Honors, 75k bonus points (50k with 1k spend 3 mos, 25k with 1k additional spend within 6 mos). SL $8K, which is higher than I expected. APR 19.29%. I think they did a SP for approval because I already have BCE (opened Jan 2017). My scores are in the low 700s, with about 15% util. To give you perspective, I started with $500 secured WF credit card back in Aug 2016, so getting approved for 8K card is nice. Journey continues though...

Thank you! I didn't feel like I traveled enough right now to warrant that and you also have to spend 4k to get the bonus. I could probably ask for an upgrade later? Hhonors also has no AF.

Thanks Mean. This was my 3rd approval this year. First was BCE in Jan, then Chase FU in March, and now this. Your scores are very comparable to mine, but of course ymmv. Stay strong, keep the course...
