Via One Mile at a Time comes some bad news regarding the upcoming Hilton Honors American Express Ascend Card.
We had hoped this card would be considered a new “product”. But it looks like it will NOT. And I’ll tell you why that’s a big deal for lots of folks in the miles & points hobby!
Are You Eligible for the Hilton Honors Ascend Sign-Up Bonus?
Hilton Honors Diamond status after spending $40,000 in purchases within a calendar year
1 weekend night at any Hilton hotel or resort after spending $15,000 in purchases on the card in a calendar year
NO foreign transaction fees
And the annual fee has been increased from $75 to $95.
We were hoping this card would be considered a new “product”, separate from the AMEX Hilton Surpass. Because if a card is considered a new product, you can earn the sign-up bonus on the card, even if you’ve already earned the sign-up bonus on its predecessor! Because AMEX limits folks to earning 1 sign-up bonus per product, per lifetime.
