Unless you happen to be living under a digital rock you are or should be well aware that if you happen to hold one of the cards below, you can now upgrade, not just to SPG GOLD status, but also to Hilton GOLD status for free:
I happen to hold both of these cards right now and, as I will show you in a bit, that can be a big advantage for you.
However, it is somewhat targeted. For example, if you have the additional user card that is you are NOT the primary card holder you will likely not be targeted for this offer (but you can try calling). First how to get it. You simply go HERE and log in with your AMEX card holder account info.
Then you simply input your HHonors number into the correct field and in a day or two you should see your status upgraded (award wallet alerted me). HHonors Gold status is nothing to take lightly. I have had HUGE suite upgrades before along with free breakfast for my wife and I and more. Please take advantage of this if you have non-Delta AMEX Platinum cards personal or business.
However, my wife, since she is an add-on user to my card, was not able to get the offer. But, notice that I hold both the personal and a business card. I simply put in my wife’s HHonors number into the field for one of the two cards, and at about the same time as me, she too was upgraded to Gold status. Not bad. Would this work with someone outside your family? No idea but I would think anyone with the same last name should work fine. – René
