September 6 Update: The Platinum Card from Amex now offers Shangri-La elite status which provides Singapore Airlines status, Cobalt Multipliers updated and more!

Following suit of what we saw on the U.K. version of The Platinum Card from American Express earlier this year, our Canadian version of the card now provides Jade Elite Status in the Shangri-La Hotels Golden Circle program. This new benefit continues to enhance the hotel elite offers the card provides including status with Marriott (SPG), Radisson, and Hilton. Albeit the SPG Gold status the card provides is worth less now not because of Amex but due to the changes in the new combined Marriott Rewards SPG program. Remember as well that the statuses you get automatically with the card can be parlayed into status in other programs. We covered it in this post: Get elite status with at least six hotel reward programs with The Platinum Card from American Express (which needs some serious updating now as there are even more programs matching status and we'll do that shortly)

You can find out more about the Shangri-La status here and get more info on The Platinum Card here.

Of note, Shangri-La has a partnership with Singapore Airlines in the likes of Marriott's with United and how SPG had with Delta, Emirates etc. The partnership is called Infinite Journeys and provides Shangri-La Jade members with automatic Silver status in Singapore Airlines' KrisFlyer program and a fast track offer to Gold Status (only 3 Singapore or Silk Air flights required). There are some other benefits included in this partnership. Find out more about Infinite Journeys here

And continuing on the American Express front, out Amex Cobalt Multipliers page has been updated once again with many 5x multipliers from the Calgary and Newport Beach areas!  Feel free to contribute any locations that are not on the list! Check out all the locations where you can 5x, 2x and 1x points!
