– you can now earn Uber credit with Rocketmiles
– Hilton Honors came through on their Diamond Extension benefit
You can pause your Diamond status and use it in teh following year once per account if you:
Current Diamond status.
Three total years at Diamond status (years do not have to be consecutive).
At least 250 nights (paid or reward) OR 500,000+ earned Base Points since joining Hilton Honors.
– the American Express Platinum Cards are changing – besides the already reported changes for the Personal Platinum card the Business Platinum cards will also change.
You will earns 5 points per dollar on airfare and prepaid hotels booked at Amextravel.com – not as good as the blanket 5x on any airline website with teh Personal Platinum but oh well.
The Priority Pass will allow up to 2 guests finally – before every guest was charged $27 – a ridiculous fee that almost tripped me up in Tel Aviv twice. But this will change March 30th for Business and Personal Platinum cards.
All the other existing new benefits will stay with the Business Platinum card – especially the complicated but potentially very lucrative ability to redeem for 2 cents per point.
The best news so far – no fee increases (unlike the Personal Platinum) – it will likely stay at $450.
