    I was hoping someone could confirm (on good authority) they have achieved HHonors diamond status through spending $40k in a calendar year? I spoke with two AMEX reps who indicated this was a feature of the card, but haven't heard about it elsewhere. If so, how long did it take for the status to post following completion of the spend? Thank you for your insight!

    Also, its at the very bottom of your monthly statement. You have spent X dollars this year. If you spend $40,000 you will receive diamond.

    I also received diamond status based on annual spend this year. I'd guess I received my diamond packet in the mail within 10 days or so of hitting the threshold.

    I guess spending on 80 VR at the expense of $316 (plus the effort) is not advisable as it might trigger an AMEX FR.

    It really sounds like I'm missing the boat on VR... I just don't have the time!

    Soon. I backed off on the Surpass once we all lost the 6x at CVS. Will grab the last few thousand the next month at grocery stores when I am up north near walmart ;)
