Has anyone put any thought into how to keep their Diamond Status into the future post-2021 expiry from the Macquarie Hilton card?
With the recent double SC promo with Velocity, I aim to make Velocity Platinum by late May 2020...this should last 12 months so when my Hilton Diamond expires 31st March 2021, i'm hoping to use my Velocity Plat for the Hilton Diamond upgrade to extend Hilton Diamond til 31st March 23...that is the plan anyway. Hence, why i'm doing Syd-Mel-Lst-Mel-Syd same day run in November. Also, Velocity has soft landings so will also drop to Velocity gold for a year after Platinum expires.

Ozb has someone reporting spending over $1200 at one hotel/transaction and being credited $240. Anyone else experienced this?
Can confirm that this works, at Conrad Singapore at least. Spent > AUD 1200 on one card and one credit of $240 came through.

Using rollover nights from last year, and nights this year, I will end up with around 55 nights towards Diamond, but already have it anyway through Macquarie. Does this mean, with rollover nights, I will need only 5 nights to keep Diamond status for another year after the status from Macquarie expires?

@kpc, that's my strategy as well. Hoping to make Plat at my Aug 19 renewal, so in mid-Aug 2020 will apply for the Diamond extension. Beyond that, re-qualing Platinum is my only hope and that may be possible after I cross over QF LTG. I can look to do all my paid flying on VA (and of course, make sure my family always travel on holidays with VA).
