    I thought Hhonors Gold status was complimentary for United 1K's, and possibly Premier Execs too. ?

    Not according to my 1K package. Four stays for Gold. If you find a pointer to complimentary gold status for 1Ks, I'd be very interested as I am about to lose my Gold status.

    Must have been some kind of promo they had three years ago, as I got it for free, NSA.

    Also, UA had free Hertz Gold (or five star for those already gold) for GS and 1K in '09 and '10. Maybe they'll offer it again this year.

    Has anyone tried the Avis Presidents Club signup for Continental Presidents Plus Mastercard members recently? Used to work for anyone:

    http://www.avis.com/car-rental/html....html?ICID=redirect&IID=continental_pres_plus

    Then there's Mortons Steakhouse VIP Status which has a number of entrypoints, including the offer for Continental Presidential Plus Mastercard members. Hint: I don't have one of these cards, but I am a Morton's VIP member.

    http://www.mortons.com/continental

    The last Accor Platinum promo I had seen expired in December. But if you signup at a-club.com with promo code CMBANKACLUB you'll get instant Gold status.

    There's also free Silver status with Radisson hotels...

    http://www.goldpointsplus.com/xing

    (Silver does get you 'Our World, Your Lounge' in EAMA region..)

    Surely there are more if I give it a little thought. [​IMG]

    AAA and AARP members get free SPG Preferred Plus status. Basically the same as Gold status but without the 50% elite point bonus. Most notable is that it gets late checkout at participating properties.

    Many other auto clubs around the world also offer the same partnership with SPG. The list of auto clubs is on spg.com.

    Call SPG to get the status added to your account. (Gold and Platinum members probably shouldn't bother.)

    Correct, but with the caveat it only (currently) works for selecting multiple posts on the same page.

    Easy status match with Czech Airlines (Skyteam):

    http://www.csa.cz/en/portal/loyalty_programs/ffp_okplus/card_match.htm

    The Card Match special will allow you to get an OK Plus Silver or Gold Card with all of the above-standard advantages these cards feature for just a single flight with Czech Airlines. All that is required is that you hold a card of the same level from another airline.

    How to make use of the Card Match special?
    All you need to do is purchase a ticket for OK flight operated by Czech Airlines and complete the application for the issuing of an OK Plus Card.
    Please send the completed application and a copy of your existing card as a scan in an e-mail attachment, or in person to a Czech Airlines office near you.

    Platinum AmEx Cardholders receive complimentary gold status by calling SPG and referring to code UI. They will verify that you do have the Platinum AmEx and remove status if you don't have it. But if you have it, call.

    sinfonia,
    Wrong card. That promo with code UI is for Amex Platinum cardmembers.
