    I noticed the ad in toward the rear of the Winter Amex Platinum Departures magazine.

    It said to called Platinum Travel Service for information or to enroll.

    I called. And my Amex Plat given Carlson Silver was upgraded to Carlson Gold within 2 hours. I also confirmed that the benefit is ongoing as long as an Amex Plat is held, like the SPG Gold benefit, and not for 1 year only like the Hilton Gold benefit.

    Great news - just in time for the current Carlson Triple Points promo!

    Congrats! Makes me wonder if maybe CC will hook up with AMEX for its soon to be revealed credit card?

    Yes. However, we in the UK still have the 2.99% loading on all foreign exchange transactions, unlike the US Plat Amex, so don't feel too bad.:rolleyes:

    As of June 29, Canadian Plat holders also get this benefit along with Accor Plat. ;)
    Like the UK cards though, Canadian cards have pesky foreign transaction fees too.
