I’m having an issue with Hhonors. I have been an Amex platinum member since 1983 and a Hilton diamond member for the past 4 or 5 years by meeting their required stays. Amex is offering an automatic gold status with the Amex Platinum. Because of that I assumed that my required stays would begin as a gold member and not as a Blue. This is the reply I received from them today:
The number of stays required for Diamond status do not change because of your Gold status with American Express Platinum; Diamond status still requires 30 separate, qualifying stays OR 60 nights OR 120,000 base points in a calendar year.
Is this possible? Am I being penalized for being a loyal member to both companies?
Hi Aris1, sorry for any confusion, but the email is correct. You are given the [I]benefits[/I] of Gold status by having the Amex Platinum, but you don’t get an head start towards diamond status, unfortunately.
