Re: Amex Hilton Upgrade from Ascend to Aspire

Is there a way to get all 3 of the subs for the Aspire, Ascend, and based Hilton card? Is this something allowed by Amex?

 

As I understand it, there are a few options:

 

1. You can sign up for those 3 cards (anyone managed to do that? i've seen people with 2 of the cards but never all 3)

2. Sign up for the Honors card, get sub. After 1st year, upgrade to either the Aspire or Ascend but as i understand it, you only get the new sub bonus if it was offered. My friend has been waiting for 3 years on his Honors card, no upgrade so he just applied for a new card.

3. More likely scenario is to sign up for the Ascend card, after 1st year upgrade to the Aspire (most likely for me because I dont think my profile will get an approval on the Aspire right away). At some point, you can also sign up for the Honors card leaving you with a total of 2 hilton cards.

You can sign up for all three, one every couple months if you like. However, there are better cards and SUBs out there then to get all 3 Hilton cards. They will just take up 3 of your 5 revolver spots with Amex. Just don't cancel any of them within 12 months or Amex will claw back the points.

Re: Amex Hilton Upgrade from Ascend to Aspire

I had the Ascend for 4 months now, but later realized I wanted the Aspire. Got spoiled with my Mariott Brilliant and it's perks.  I was told last week to wait 3 more months and will auto receive the offer.  Or, I could upgrade now but not get the SUB.  While the SUB is nice, I am spoiled with status (exclusive lounges are way cool). Glad I did it. The invitations by Hilton (concerts, parties, culinary) for the summer are priceless.

But hey, that's me...
