Hilton HHonors

Postby Tubpbs » Sat Apr 09, 2016 10:46 am

Does anyone have one of these cards from either Amex or Citi?

Does anyone understand what edge the Citi cards are supposed to have? I can't find it. I didn't get crazy evaluating the two, but it seems pretty straightforward.

Am I missing something??

Interested in everyone's thoughts.
Amex - BCP, Platinum, Business Gold
BoA - BankAmericard Cash Rewards
Chase - Freedom, CSP, RC, Ink Plus
Citi - DC, Prestige
Discover - It

Some Hilton properties have stupidly high point prices, so the Citi weekend night certificates can potentially be worth more as a signup bonus.

Citi can fast-track someone to Diamond status, and Citi has Price Rewind.

Amex has Offers and a slightly better earn rate - although with heavy non-Hilton spend the Citi extras could be worth more.
Very useful: SchwabPlat, CSP, IHG, Costco (was AA Plat), Freedom, SPG
Somewhat useful: Discover, ED (was EDP), BCE, Hyatt, Arrival
May close or PC: Prestige, BrooksBros

Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech

I wasn't really thinking about the sign up onus but those are all good points. I'm not sure if any of them interest me or not. I think not.
