If I am going to fork over $450 a year just for the privilege of owing someone money, you better believe I want something in return. The American Express Platinum Card is competing in a universe of cut throat competition and offering the best benefits to cardmembers is essential to its success. I personally feel that I make money or at least save money off of my high annual fee credit cards because of their exceptional benefits and associated savings from things like lounge access, free hotel nights and airline fee credits. Now that I get free breakfast, internet and room upgrades at Hilton I’m even more inclined to stay a cardmember.

I’ve been a happy American Express Platinum Card holder for the last couple years and have enjoyed the Priority Pass lounge access, Starwood Hotels Gold status and the $200 annual airline fee credit. Out of the blue yesterday Amex surprised us with a new benefit, Hilton HHonors Gold Elite status. Anytime you take something which already provides great value and add increased value you’re going to make me happy. As one of our great readers Antonio will attest, Hilton Gold can provide some fantastic benefits at Hilton properties and at higher end stays it generally includes a substantial room upgrade, free breakfast for two, fitness access, late check out and all the stuff you actually want when staying somewhere. 

To enroll your card simply login to your account with THIS link. If you haven’t already registered for Hilton you’ll need to do that. Once you have a Hilton HHonors number, input it into the form using the link above and your account will be updated as Gold Elite in a mater of hours. If you have a vacation or work trip coming up you’ll certainly enjoy the free breakfast for two and hopefully a room with a view!
