Haven't seen this posted. Hope I am not duplicating. I noticed on my November Amex Hilton Surpass statement, both in the calculation of points for a Nov. 6 Hilton Garden Inn charge I had, and then again in an explanatory note at the bottom of the bill, that effective Nov. 1 I get 12 points (3 + a bonus of 9) for each dollar spent on my card at a Hilton-family hotel -- up from 9 (3 + a bonus of 6). Appears to be a change in policy, not a temporary promotion. Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, methinx.
