The Hilton Anatole exec lounge is garbage. First one I’ve been routinely disappointed with.
Knowing where you're headed, it will absolutely be worth it. If you all keep staying at the same hotel in Vegas, you'll hit Hilton Diamond status easily, and you'll get extra perks at the Grand Vacations with the Gold status that comes with the card. There's a Centurion lounge in the Vegas airport as well. Even if they didn't waive the annual fee, I would've easily gotten my money's worth having the Platinum Card for the last few years.Good stuff, thanks for that, guys.
Of course given the high pricing and high margin on SFA clothing, well they aren't giving up muchFWIW - the AMEX Platinum has a new benefit - you get 2 $50 credits (split before June and after June) to spend at Saks 5th Avenue throughout the year.
Like a bar spoon, a bar cutting board, and a sweet hoodie (not pictured...). $51.26Any chance you can buy gift cards with that credit? (Which can be given as gifts or sold through a gift card reseller?) If not, I suspect I can find some random gift for my mother-in-law that costs about $50 at Saks...
According to The Points Guy, no, they aren't valid for that, but his post hasn't tested it yet.Any chance you can buy gift cards with that credit?

Dang. Well done. You're doing it right.Like a bar spoon, a bar cutting board, and a sweet hoodie (not pictured...). $51.26
Might be out of luck on the sign-up bonus:So I've been mulling this one over. I opened my Sapphire Preferred (and later Reserve) both after commissioning and have been paying the associated fee. As I understand it, I am ineligible for the waiver because I opened the card after joining rather than before.
However, has anybody had any luck with closing their card at the 24-month mark and reopening a new account, thus re-earning the points benefit and also meriting a fee waiver thanks to reopening after 20 SEP 2017?
For all the years of my service remaining, I'd be pretty stoked to pull that off...
I believe I read this the same day I made the post on AW. What (un)luck is that?! However, if I can preserve my points,, I'm still interested in canceling/reopening and hopefully falling under the MLA so I don't have to pay $450 for my card (+$75 for my wife's) each year.Might be out of luck on the sign-up bonus:
