December 6 Update: Amex to Hilton transfers temporarily suspended, new Centurion Lounge to open at LHR, Double Esso Extra points for 3 days

Just in case you may have been wondering why Hilton Honors isn't showing as a transfer partner in American Express' Membership Rewards, it isn't because they aren't a partner anymore. They are still a Membership Rewards partner but due to some updates transfers are not available for the moment. Here is what Amex told us:
Hilton recently made changes to their loyalty program systems which impacted ours, so we’re making some updates on our end to align with those changes. We expect this to complete shortly, and transfers to Hilton will be available again within the coming days

More American Express Centurion Lounge news and I would say this one is more newsworthy to us Canadians than the Charlotte one earlier this week. News broke that Amex will open a Centurion lounge at London's Heathrow Airport in 2019. The 7,000 square foot lounge will be located in Terminal 3, which isn't the best option for most Canadians flying back to Canada unless you are flying via the U.S. on airlines like American, Delta or Virgin Atlantic. That being said you can still access the lounge even if you are departing from another terminal just make sure you make enough time to transit to whichever Terminal you are departing from! Access of course is granted to Centurion or Platinum Card holders. (Source VFTW)

Esso Extra will be offering double points when you swipe your cards as Esso stations from December 8 to 10. Might be the right time to buy some lotto or gift cards!
