Upgrade to the Hilton HHonorsTM Surpass® Card from American Express

Upgrade to the Hilton HHonorsTM Surpass® Card from American Express

I recently chanced upon this link on reddit and I saw there was something about a Hilton upgrade that will net 50k points without a credit pull. Many bloggers are talking about the 85,000 bonus offer but that requires a pull. We found this link, that upgrades your credit card WITHOUT a credit pull.

LINK

So all you need to do is have an existing card that is eligible, I had a HHonors regular card, so that worked. I didn’t apply for the HHonors card, rather I downgraded the Amex Delta Platinum card that I got last month with 60k.  For those that read our blog frequently, they would have nabbed that card as well. now it is really putting my credit pull to good use with this bonus 50k on the Surpass card.

What else do you need to do?

There is a spending requirement of $3,000 in 90 days, like all credit card signups.

Why do no other bloggers talk about this?

Most bloggers only care about their pockets. They will only show you cards that they make money on. They will show you the lower of the 2 offers if they get a commision only on the lower offer.  MMS usually writes the better offer and DoC always writes the best offer.

Resort in Bora Bora

We at Credit Card Joint have a strong belief that the consumer will appreciate the best offer all the time, We do not currently have links to promote any credit cards, therefore we will provide you with unbiased information. We will receive no ill gotten gains on our readerships behalf. Our goal is a long term readership that will benefit the site in the long run.

Having pointed this out, is it understandable why no other blogger write about this?
