Well, I applied for the Surpass and was approved, but the situation is a bit odd.
I applied and never received any notice that I wouldn't be eligible for the SUB so that's good, I hope. Never received an email about the approval though. I did receive an email for adding a card for my wife but nothing on the actual approval.
There was no info on a starting limit with the initial approval. But when I added the account to my app it showed up with a limit of 10k. Now the interesting part, at the same time my limit on my Hilton Honors card was reduced from 20k to 10.5k. So I guess they don't want to risk more than $20k with me.
The other odd thing is that I looked at the page to transfer limits between cards and on that page my limit on the Honors is listed at the new lower $10.5k amount while the Surpass is listed at $15k rather than the $10k that shows on my app.
So we'll see what happens when the card actually arrives.
Congrats on the approval OP. Sounds like they reallocated some limits around, but an approval nonetheless. Enjoy the new card!
