The resort benefit on the Aspire card only works at the ~200 hotels on the list at this link:
http://www3.hilton.com/en/resorts/index.html#
For existing Surpass card holders, AMEX verbally confirmed that on or after 20 January 2018, card holders can call in and request cards be converted to Aspire - while maintaining the same credit card number, balance limits, PIN, etc.

For the Aspire card, the Annual Weekend Night Reward will be issued in the form of a redeemable code and sent in an email from Hilton Honors to the email address listed on your Hilton Honors account. You will receive the reward email within 8-14 weeks after opening your Card Account and each year within 8-14 weeks after your Card Account anniversary date. E-mail for Hilton providing the free night certificate has been received by several people..

HonorsRepresentative (Lauren) has provided answers in the following posts to some of the questions that have been raised in this thread:

My first 20k did too. (for $2k spend.) I need another ~$300 to reach the second 20k.

Haven't got the 20k for $200 grocery store spending yet (on another card), but I just reached it on Nov 30.

Can the free weekend night stays stack back to back for two nights?

Currently i have one free weekend night which expires in May
But my Aspire card renews in Mar and I should get another free weekend night in Mar/Apr?
So would I be able to use both those free weekend nights for consecutive stays?

Thanks!

Yes as long as they aren't expired. I use two certs at the Paris opera on consecutive nights in July. I had the cert from my old Citi Card and the sign up cert from the Aspire and used them both the same weekend.

Just finished a couple of stays in Tokyo booked with my new Aspire card. When do you see the bonus points for booking with the card? Do they post with the regular hotel posting, or do they post monthly?

(not sure if this is the right thread)

I am looking to apply for the Hilton Biz card this week.

Are the instant approvals hard to come by? ( i currently have the spg biz with amex)

I think this is a good offer. elevated bonus with $3k min spend (doable). I am not a big fan of hilton's pts valuation but I have a trip to coming up and want to check out their props.... should i do it?

Iím not that bold, these had about six months between each of the three. I have experience with AMEX denying me because of too many applications with them in a short tine. I doubt three on one day will go well.

I just tried to book my weekend reward night from the Aspire card, and the csr told me that the hotel had no availability for using a reward certificate, yet when I check the website, it shows that you can book with points. Shouldn't this indicate that a certificate can be used, or are those more limited than rooms available to pay with points?

Is standard room available for points or only premium redemptions. Rooms will be available for points pretty much all of the time, but standard room availability has to be there for the certs

Then the CSR messed it up unless it was not a weekend night. If it is a weekend night, then call back and someone should be able to help you.

In 2018:
  • Earned 99,001 points through 3 Hilton stays (which includes double bonus) totalling 7 nights
  • Earned about 180,000 points through credit cards, including a 100,000 signup bonus, 30,000 of base earnings and 30,000 of bonus categories, and 20,000 end of year spend bonus
  • Converted 4,000 Amex points to 12,000 Hilton Points
Unfortunately, got my card too late to really push for the free weekend night bonus

Next year, look forward to either applying for an Aspire or upgrading my Ascend to Aspire for another 150,000 signup bonus. With the cards, elite bonuses, double points bonus, Hilton/Amex are pretty rewarding....

Not sure this is the right thread, but I called AMEX today and was told that my newly ( 60 days ) opened Biz card account is not eligible for the sign up bonus
because I had ( and have ) another personal Hilton Amex card. Did I miss something?
