Conclusion

S’il est difficile d’obtenir des points Hilton Honors au Canada (le taux de transfert depuis American Express Points-Privilèges est plutôt dissuasif), cela n’empêche que le statut Hilton Honors Gold obtenu grâce à la Carte de PlatineMD d’American Express reste très avantageux, notamment pour les petits-déjeuners gratuits!

Si vous ne pouvez pas vous offrir cette carte, le programme d’équivalence de statut Hilton Honors est alors très intéressant!
