Amex Hilton Aspire – Is Anyone Diamond if Everyone is Diamond?. – Very true.  As it is, Diamond status has been pretty easy to obtain when spending $40K on the Citi or Amex paid version of the Hilton card.  And Hilton hasn’t been overly generous with upgrades due to my status when I’ve stayed at their properties.  I wonder what will happen when bunches of people get this card.
