Amex has two Hilton cards, and Citi has another two. Did you look at those?

MR bonuses are nice, but the conversion rate for hotels is pretty bad. 1000 MRs become only 1500 HHonors points. MRs are really best for flights.

The Hilton Surpass from Amex probably makes the most sense as far as an everyday spending card.
Very useful: SchwabPlat, CSP, IHG, Costco (was AA Plat), Freedom, SPG, Prestige (retention)
Somewhat useful: Discover, ED (was EDP), BCE, Hyatt
SD with activity alerts, might close: Arrival

Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech, BofA Travel PH, Aviator Red

Thanks. I did look at the Hilton Amex cards, but just briefly. I will go back and review. I have the PRG for free for a year, so I will at least ride that out and go from there. Thanks for the feedback.

There's a public Surpass offer for 100k HH points for $3k spend in 3 months. It ends May 4.
