1st October 2022 at 15:43 in reply to: Double tier points not showing in accountRonnieB
just checked my account today showing 2 x 140 TP , total of 280 TP and now Bronze status, but this does not add up as should have received double TP for CW and hotel package for 5 days. Is there something missing here ?
Yes what’s missing is details of your trip !!21st September 2022 at 17:42 in reply to: Amex – £50 off £200 – until Dec 2022RonnieB
I’m still waiting on the £50 credit from the last such promo back in April !!30th August 2022 at 16:45 in reply to: New £300 Platinum dining credit July 2022RonnieB
Tried a remote purchase of a gift card for US restuarant but didn’t work as zip code needs to match with card, and site would only allow numeric (US zip) postal code.26th August 2022 at 13:30 in reply to: Ambassador free nightRonnieB
In my account it says:
Ambassador Complimentary Weekend Night
Valid until 31/03/2023
Do I need to book or have stayed by end of March? Thank you.
Just for clarification – I thought you had to BOOK by the expiry date. Is it STAY by the expiry date or not??24th August 2022 at 14:10 in reply to: Inverness Marriott CourtyardRonnieB

Can anyone tell me how long it takes for the dining credit to appear on your statement?
I used the credit a week ago, and received a confirmation email from Amex but the full amount still appears on my statement and no credit given.
Amex now, of course, requiring payment.
Well of course they are looking for payment, what would you expect? T&Cs are pretty clear it could take up to 150 days

Anyone received their prizes yet?
Yes, didn’t you read page 1?5th August 2022 at 12:59 in reply to: Bonus £ counterRonnieB
I have the same issue, but I think the counter only updates at the statement date, unlike the AMEX ones that update continuously. Is that correct?
Otherwise mine is stuck too !!4th August 2022 at 08:20 in reply to: Northern Hiltons recommended?RonnieB
DT Westerwood near Cumbernauld is in a nice setting with Spa and golf course. Only accessible by car4th August 2022 at 08:11 in reply to: Nectar auto convert competitionRonnieB
Same email here, sadly only 2500 avios though.
Yeh I won 2500 as well26th July 2022 at 17:25 in reply to: How many points per £1 with Hilton?RonnieB
FWIW I recently spent £2400 (charged in Euros equiv) and got around 103k Hilton Honour points in the triple points bonus. Hilton Gold
That’s a pretty good lump of points!
Am I right in thinking it’s the hotel that allocates the points or is it done automatically by the system?26th July 2022 at 10:59 in reply to: How many points per £1 with Hilton?RonnieB
They’ve always been 10 per USD not GBP on the rate with taxes deducted.
Thanks but this is a couple of years out of date, doesn’t have current promotion21st July 2022 at 14:27 in reply to: New £300 Platinum dining credit July 2022RonnieB
Hawksmoor and Gordon Ramsay sell gift cards online. Would these transactions qualify ? Or does anyone know if they are sold in the restaurant on site ?
In a similar vein, if you can’t get abroad before end of year could you buy a gift card for a foreign restaurant online and allow a friend to use it abroad?20th July 2022 at 08:18 in reply to: Nectar auto convert competitionRonnieB
I met the criteria too and haven’t heard anything either. Not convinced the draw has taken place if no-one on here hasn’t won anything.
I was able to auto-convert 400 every week, and no results of the draw here – I smell a rat!18th July 2022 at 17:28 in reply to: Post your American Express Platinum retention offers here!RonnieB
Got a 35k retention offer recently but it was obvious with travel resuming that they are being a little more difficult with retention bonuses. To be expected at some point I suppose.18th July 2022 at 17:26 in reply to: Post your American Express Platinum retention offers here!RonnieB
I am clearly not very good at this. I have been contemplating cancelling my gold card for some time due to getting the Barclays Avios card as my second fee paying card. Had my BA gold for 3 years. Hit the yearly bonus each year. Was offered 10k, which I thought was disappointing, they said it was the best they could do. Told them to cancel which the proceeded with, at the last second, I reverted my decision and took the 10k.
You’re in the wrong forum, this is for Platinum. 10k is all you can expect on other cards.13th July 2022 at 07:54 in reply to: Breakfast credit – can I use it the night before?RonnieB
As far as the breakfast thing is concerned – I’ve had a few US hotels still give me free breakfast rather than the F&B credit so I guess it depends on venue. That’s a much better arrangement in my view13th July 2022 at 07:42 in reply to: Breakfast credit – can I use it the night before?RonnieB
Well you can blame the Tories for that last bit, they have systematically dismantled the UK economy in the last 6 years. The market doesn’t lie, unlike most of them!
Always love the misplaced political jibe. What about the €uro – now at a 20 year low vs the dollar?
Nice observation but the pound is at a 40 year low !12th July 2022 at 06:41 in reply to: Breakfast credit – can I use it the night before?RonnieB
Can confirm that it’s 30/36USD per one night stay either on checking or checkout day. You can generally use it for any F&B – dinner, drinks, beers or even food in the shop.
Yep, same experience here. Really flexible. Just depressing how tax & tips erode it though (not to mention the forex rate…..).

I was more interested in when the July draw takes place – and how to remove my existing autoconvert, is that easy enough to do?2nd June 2022 at 03:40 in reply to: How long before flight can I drop checked baggage?RonnieB
As it happens I turned up 5 hours before and no issue dropping checked bags. Regardless of status or class of travel.20th May 2022 at 02:36 in reply to: IHG amenities when booking with pointsRonnieB
Had a stay at Crowne Plaza Lake Buena Vista in Orlando last week and received the free breakfast as a Diamond amenity choice, it was excellent as US buffet breakfasts go.6th May 2022 at 18:54 in reply to: USA accepted testsRonnieB
Rather than start a new thread, as this is still about tests for US flights, can I ask a supplemental question.
I’ve read from more than one source that there seems to be an issue with Qured getting tests sent out promptly/within the 5 days they say it normally would be.
Any recent first hand experience on the matter would be appreciated.
Got my Qured pack within a couple of days. Ordered well in advance6th May 2022 at 07:49 in reply to: Cancelling avios flightRonnieB
Thanks everyone5th May 2022 at 10:05 in reply to: Loganair flight cancellation – now previous day, any compensation?RonnieB
Super response, and I’ll probably just have to go down day before, it makes little difference to me other than the extra night and extra parking arrangements at ABZ which is a hassle. ABZ to Bristol so no other airline to be routed on.
Just so ridiculous to try and blame it on their customers and Covid and claim it’s outwith their control.
