You can use this link to apply for the AMEX HHonors Surpass and get an extra 20k in points with no additional spend (still $3k in 3 months) until Feb 28, 2015. This may be a good option for those going to apply in Jan or for those doing the AMEX end of year experiment or if you just want to be safe and apply now to establish a 2014 date with AMEX. This card also gives you GOLD status for great upgrades and free Wifi, which can sometimes be $20/night. AF is the same as the 60k link on the main AMEX page ($75) and is also not waived the first year. https://www262.americanexpress.com/dapply/web/applycard/us/personal-card/api/hil/hilton-hhonors-surpass-card/hhsc-024?wt.mc_id=CMEM_BUfyV3B89yK-nY If you recently got this card with the 60k bonus, go on AMEX chat and ask for the extra 20k. Provide this link to them, if they need proof that the offer is out there. Usually <90 days from the time your account was opened. Good luck and happy applying!!
AMEX has changed their sign up bonus for the HHonors card. It's now 75k points for a $3k spend. That can get you 3 nights free in places like Orlando where they have several hotels for 20k/night, and they are not bad hotels. There's also locations that you can use points and money to get nights so you could stay at a hotel for 3 nights for 60k and the fourth night for for $50 and 8k points. If varies by hotel. https://www304.americanexpress.com/credit-card/hilton-hhonors-surpass/25330 When I got mine in Feb the first 40k was after the first purchase and then you got the remaining 20k after a $3k spend. Just thought I would mention this in case you're looking at taking advantage of the AMEX 2 for 1 app. I think this card is better than the Citi HHonors card because of this change and the fact that the AF is $20 lower on the AMEX and the points per dollar is much better on the AMEX. The upside to the Citi card is that the 2 weekend nights can be used for expensive rooms in bigger cities where the same room for one night could be 70-90k points. It depends on if you're looking for quantity or quality from your sign up bonus. Also the Citi has no foreign tx fees. Neither card waives the AF the first year.
