The previous AmEx Hilton Surpass replaced by this card. The sign-up bonus is pretty good, so it is meriting for applying. If you are spending too much, then it can be a good choice to spend $15k on this card as you are getting 3X Hilton points on every spending. And this points worth approx. 1.5% in return. Even on the anniversary, you will earn a weekend free night, which is worth about $200 that means additional approx. 1.3% in back. So if we count total return, then it is about 2.8%.
