I agree just got it. Points are t anything flash but working towards my diamond status as my status match expires soon.

Hoping I can use the reward certificates for a family trip OS later this year. I understand it’s meant to be for a base room. Hoping can get a decent room for family of 4. Interested in anyone’s experience. Going to Hawaii likely to stay at Hilton Hawaiian Village.

Some got the same pleasant surprise last year, as well. However, I won’t get too excited until after 31 March, to see if it sticks.

I'm with you here. I'm sure I haven't spent $40K on the card, but then again, I don't know when the 12 month period commences (presume based on card commencement + 12 months).

My daughter went to apply for the card last night however the fee free option for the first year expired on 31 January.

Does anyone know how often this promo pops up?

I've recently hit my $12K spend and all charges have posted. How long did it take other members before status was upgraded to Diamond/extended.

I'm prepared to keep going to $40K if required but with poor points earn, like to have the choice of using other cards for further spend. Perks are otherwise great and justify the spend for me. Great card with good annual fee deal and online/app account management tools.

Just catching up…will there now be a fee after the first year for those of us who joined fee free ?
Had stopped using it, but might have to push some money through to get diamond and then decide about paying a fee…..

The 2nd free night (for $12k) arrived shortly after hitting that mark.

Diamond Status - does that even require $12k/$40k? ;)
