The Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card is probably one of the best deals in travel. Gold status gets you breakfast on your Hilton stays and there aren’t any less expensive cards I’m aware of that come with airport lounge access (for most people 10 annual free visits is more than enough). The no annual fee card though is a nice deal for the bonus points.
