On my mind: I’ve been giving some thought to the new lineup of Hilton credit cards. I was planning to upgrade my Ascend to an Aspire if a good bonus point offer comes around. I’ve not received any upgrade bonus offers or seen any reported. Instead, I may apply for the Aspire on its own and hold two Hilton cards. One anniversary weekend cert is not much use to us. Two certs are useful, so $15,000 of grocery store spend on the Ascend for a weekend night and 90,000 points is winning me over.
