AMEX Platinum Card Holders Get Free Hilton Gold Status

Hilton Gold Status is now a standard benefit of the American Express Platinum Card, Platinum Business Card, and (I assume) Mercedes-Benz and Ameriprise Platinum cards. That’s great news for me, since I just got the”regular” Platinum Card with a 100,000 point sign up bonus two months ago.

Hilton Gold Status is not automatic just by holding one of these cards. To get the status, click this link.

I’ve updated Get the Most Out of Your American Express Platinum Card to include this benefit. If you have a Platinum card, you have to read that post.

What Is Hilton Gold Status?

Hilton Gold Status is the middle of three tiers of elite status and normally requires 20 stays or 40 nights in a year to earn.
