A few months ago, we talked about the new American Express Hilton cards that came out.  Goodbye Surpass, hello Ascend (and Aspire).  There are 4 cards total – 3 personal cards and 1 business card.  The 3 personal cards are targeted at a different market segment and come with different annual fees.  $0 (Hilton Honors “regular”), $95 (Ascend) and $450 (Aspire).  Of course the benefits of the 3 cards are also tiered with their annual fees
