Besides the SPG Gold status, the American Express Platinum now comes with complimentary Hilton HHonors Gold status as well. This is a benefit that was tested previously but can now be added easily to all Platinum cards.
For HHonors Gold status, you need to have make 20 stays or 40 nights in a calendar year, or earn 75,000 HHonors Base Points in a calendar year.
The benefit is not added automatically to your card but you can enroll here. If you already have Hilton HHonors Gold status, you can maintain the benefit in the future because you do not need to meet any stay requirements. You maintain Gold status without meeting otherwise required criteria only while an eligible Card Member or until American Express notifies you that the benefit is terminated.
