Yesterday, I received my new diamond HH card showing the expiration of 4/30/2006. Today, I received a greeting card from American Express that has solved the mystery:

"Congratulations
You are now entitled to even more prestigious benefits as an HHonors Diamond VIP

In recognition of your exceptional loyalty to the Hilton HHonors Platinum Credit Card from American Express, you have been upgraded to Hilton HHonors Diamond VIP. As an HHonors Diamond VIP, you will now enjoy a whole range of unparelleled privileges to make your travel more comfortable and convenient. etc, etc, etc."

I've had the card since April and have probably spent $50,000 or so on it. I've used the card pretty much exclusively whenever I can and wherever AMEX is accepted. Purchases range from $4 for fast food to several thousands for odds and ends. I guess AMEX and Hilton are happy with my spending habits.
