Hilton Credit Card Upgrade vs New Application

Hello,

Does anyone know when you receive credit card upgrade offers from Hilton Amex? Do you usually get these upgrade offers on the 13th month?
Will you get an upgrade offer on ur Surpass card if you already have an Aspire card?

I read that you can get a double bonus by applying for the card first, and THEN upgrading. Has anyone tried this and know the relative timeframe?
1) do you wait for the upgrade offer on the Surpass to Aspire after the 1st year; apply for a new Aspire; then upgrade the Surpass? (so everything happens after the 1st year); or
2) do you apply for a new Aspire first; wait for an upgrade offer on the Surpass after year 1 (will they give you a bonus if you already have the Aspire??) and use it?
