This is a reminder that you only have a few days left to jump on this promotion. If you are an American Express Platinum credit card holder you have until December 31, 2013 to call the Amex Platinum line and have them enroll you as a Gold member at Hilton hotels. Your status will be good for all of 2014!
American Express Platinum Credit Card Holders are eligible to request free Hilton Gold Status through December 31, 2013. This is for both personal and business cardmembers, but you must call Amex to request this status, it will not automatically apply to your account.
You will then have status for 2014, however, Hilton Gold status does not reset until March of the following year, so this will probably be available for you until March 2015.
While I absolutely would not get the Amex Platinum card for this benefit alone, if you are already a card member it is a great perk. While Hilton Gold status is their mid-tier status, it is actually a great status to have. You get access to free breakfast and many times you’ll even get lounge access. You will also get free internet during your stay.
Thanks to The Points Guy for sharing this promotion.
