Hilton HHonors Gold Status is Now a Benefit of The AMEX Platinum Card
Without prior announcements, AMEX is now offering free Hilton HHonors Gold status for Platinum card holders. Every now and then I would check out the Benefits page on my AMEX Platinum card, and to my pleasant surprise I see HHonors Gold as a benefit I haven’t seen before.
It would normally take 20 stays, 40 nights or 75,000 HHonors Base Points in a calendar year to earn HHonors Gold.
What are the benefits of Hilton HHonors Gold Status?
- 25% ELITE STATUS BONUS With Gold elite status, you automatically receive a 25% bonus on all the HHonors Base Points you earn.
- 5th night free on Standard Room Reward stays of 5 nights or more.
- Complimentary in-room and lobby Standard Internet access.
- Late check-out. (Based on availability)
- Two complimentary bottles of water per stay.
- Space-available upgrade to a preferred room at Waldorf Astoria, Conrad, Hilton and DoubleTree hotels. And 1,000 HHonors Bonus Points per stay or a complimentary continental breakfast for you and up to one additional guest registered to the same room each day of your stay at Conrad, Hilton and DoubleTree hotels.
Even though these benefits don’t seem super lucrative, it’s not a bad deal when all you have to is log into your AMEX account, add you HHonors account number and click enroll.
