    So Im pretty solid on the large airlines with UA@350k and AA@260k. I still have the option to apply for the Chase UA at 65k and Citi Biz AA,but decided to go get some hh points.

    Virgin Atlantic 65k really 50k=100k hh
    Bank Of Hawaii Hawaii Airlines 35k= 70k hh
    Bank of America Hawaii Airlines 35k=70k hh
    2x Citi Hilton Honors 50k = 100k hh
    Amex Hilton - Applied last term 50k

    Should I apply for the Surpass card even though I have the Amex Honors? Im quite sure I am available for the promo? Am I missing anymore hilton cards?

    Are there any fees for transferring from Virgin or Hawaiian (I know AA => HHonors added fees)

    This past weekend, I just called to transfer 50,000 Virgin Atlantic miles to 100,000 HHonors points, and there were no fees. They told me it would take 30 days to transfer, but the post below says it only took 5 days for his transfer to go through.

    you can "upgrade" your Amex to the suprass once a year has passed.

    Also the citi reserve card.

    Believe the Virgin 65k offer is now dead. Don't know what the best deal is.

    the boa cards all come with annual fees upfront, i get 2 of the citi cards for 100k every 3 months, they are churnable and you never have to pay an annual fee, this nets me 400k hilton pts per year

    I only see the below two cards from CITI for HH and not sure how you're able to get 2 with no fees. I can only find 1 card for 40K miles. Would you happen to have links?

    Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Visa Signature® Card from Citibank®

    Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Reserve Card from Citibank®

    Some the stuff posted here is .. well...to put it mildly .. a bit different from my own understanding
    1) I thought Citi had clamped down on churning... I know they at least did so for the AA cards.
    Also since the Citi Reserve card has only been around for 3 months or so... I am perplexed
    as to how one could claim to have churned them twice already.
    2) Its also my understanding the Bank of Hawaii HA cards are only for residents of Hawaii.
    3) Right now I see no point in the OP applying for the Surpass since Amex gives only the difference in bonus from the regular HH amex.

    But I suppose one could always open ten browers and apply for ten cards simultaneously :rolleyes:

    I got the BOH and BOA Hawaiian Airlines card at the same time about a year ago, and I'm not a Hawaii resident.

    Update, I applied for BOH last night without being a resident of Hawaii. Wasn't instantly approved but when calling back and briefly mentioning I wanted to split up spending between this new card and my previously held BOA HA card, i was approved within 5 minutes.

    I just applied for both the Citi HHonors and BofA and Bof HA cards along with both Chase WN cards and was approved for all of them. I also applied for the Bus. SPG and US Airways card. Was only denied for the US Airways card. The CSR stated that you can not have 2 of those cards at the same time?
