American Express rebranded their Hilton Ascend card — and today introduced the Hilton Honors American Express Surpass Card (learn more about this card). Plus, Amex announced a limited time offer for its Hilton Honors American Express Card (learn more about this card).
The topics of “independence” and “travel,” got my mind going a bit. I thought about “free agents”: people who shop around for the best deal and don’t stick to just one airline or hotel loyalty program.
Many Rene’s Points readers are very loyal — or at least rather partial — to Delta Air Lines. Because I’m a Delta Medallion and fly the mothership during 90% of my travels, really I’m not an airline free agent per se.
Hotel-wise, that’s a different story. That’s where I am a free agent and I must say — I kind of like it.
