While cancelling my Plat Delta card (no use out of Vegas), the Am Ex rep asked me about upgrading my Hilton Ascend (now the Surpass) to the Aspire: 150k points for $4k spend in 3 months, and the $450 AF. I use the Hilton card quite a bit, so I bit on it. Upgraded 7/19, received the bonus points on 8/10. Pretty fast! Just an FYI, as we have posts about "how long to get my SUB". Am Ex delivers!
