amex platinum 40th anniversary bonus hilton transfer bonus

I waited to post this until today as I was awaiting confirmation from American Express regarding the Hilton transfer bonus. You’ll see below what I am referring to.

The Platinum Card celebrates its 40th anniversary by treating Card Members to exclusive offers and experiences across travel, dining and retail all summer long. 

These special offers, which begin today May 9th through September 30th, include experiences such as:

  • Complimentary 3rd Night at Select Hotels: Amex Survey* which found that 72% of Gen Z and Millennials prefer to take multiple long weekend trips rather than one longer trip. With this, Platinum Card® Members can access a complimentary 3rd night on eligible stays at select Fine Hotels + Resorts® and The Hotel Collection properties booked through American Express Travel®. Travel dates and terms apply.

  • Platinum Card 40% Point Transfer Offer: Platinum Card Members get 40% more Hilton Honors™ Points when you transfer Membership Rewards® points through from May 9 to May 31. Offer is only available to current Platinum Card Members on a Platinum Account opened on or before April 20, 2024. Terms apply.

    If you subscribe to Transfer Bonus Notifications, you were alerted last night to this new transfer bonus along with commentary on the offer.”

    NOTE: Some cardmembers have reported that this offer is not showing on their account despite having the card on or before April 20th. American Express has confirmed to me that eligible cardmembers will be made whole on that transfer bonus as the issue is corrected, even if you make the transfer before the offer shows on your account.

  • “40 Nights of Platinum: 72% of GenZers & Millennials say they love dining out at popular, sought-after restaurants, a recent Amex survey found. So to celebrate the 40th anniversary,Platinum Card Members can celebrate 40 Nights of Platinum where they enjoy special access to select popular Global Dining Access by Resy restaurants across the U.S., such as Cocodaq (NYC), Dante BH (LA) and Mandolin (Miami) from May 30 to September 26. Terms apply.

  • Platinum 40th Anniversary Amex Offers: Platinum Card Members can earn statement credits or Membership Rewards Points when they enroll in an offer and make select purchases using their Card.

Terms apply.

  • U.S. Centurion Lounges: U.S. Centurion Lounges will celebrate the 40th anniversary with a new Platinum-themed cocktail, the Platinum 1984, created by mixologist Jim Meehan, and special treats for Card Members visiting the lounges throughout the summer.

  • Premium Events: Platinum Card Members will have exclusive access to specially curated events within the Premium Events Collection™(formerly known as By Invitation Only), which offers Platinum Card Members special access to bespoke experiences across sports, fashion, art, dining, and more.”

Note that this is only for personal Platinum card holders, not holders of The Business Platinum Card® from American Express.
