Hilton has started a new blitz of credit card offers for its Amex and Citi cards ranging from 75,000-100,000 points.
The problem for many of us is that they include the Amex ‘once per lifetime’ or Citi 24-month exclusion.
I noticed in my Amex account an offer to upgrade my no annual fee Hilton to the Hilton Surpass for 75,000 points…and no ‘once per lifetime’ exclusion!

Where to find the 75k upgrade offer:
1. Check your card offers on the main account page:
2. Check the sidebar menu (accessed by clicking the upper left ‘Menu’ button) and click on ‘View All Personal Charge & Credit Cards.’
Scroll down to see the offer. If it is 75k, click the terms to verify the bonus language.
Warning: do not click ‘View Card Details,’ that will redirect you to the 50k offer and you’ll need to start over. Only click ‘Request an Upgrade.’
If it is 50k, you are not targeted.
Depending how you click around, you might end up at this alternate screen for the 75k offer, which has the same terms and you are good to go :
3. You can try the direct application link, though in tests it does not appear to work unless you are targeted.
75,000 points for $3,000 spend in first 3 months.
$75 annual fee prorated based on account anniversary.
You can later downgrade back to the no annual fee card should you not need the Surpass long-term.
The offer terms are here:
You can get 75,000 Hilton HHonors™ Bonus Points after you spend $3,000 on purchases on your Card in your first 3 months of Card Membership starting from the date your account is approved. In rare instances, your period to spend $3,000 may be shorter than 3 months if there is a delay in receiving your Card…
Good luck! Readers, share your data points on if you are targeted.
