I’m in the same situation but due to travel in ~2 weeks. Would my current unpaid bill on the Gold (~£3000 and due next month) count towards the spending target for plat if paid once the new card arrives?

It should be fairly self evident that spend incurred on the gold card prior to the upgrade will not count towards the Platinum SUB and that when you pay your bill for old charges is also irrelevant for the SUB.

Ha yes thought so, wishful thinking on my part!

I’m assuming any saved offers won’t be transferred across too – I have a Hilton stay this weekend to trigger £50 off offer on the Gold, so will need to activate the plat shortly after that.
