Start Here with FHRNews

FHRNews helps you use your American Express Platinum (and Centurion) benefits to save you both time and money when traveling. The benefits you get with your Platinum/Centurion card can easily save you more than the $450 (USA) annual fee, and I'm here to make sure you get ALL the benefits you're paying for.

The most lucrative benefit available is the Free Night offers that you get with the Fine Hotels and Resorts benefit. You can easily save $300, and at the Four Seasons Bora Bora, pictured above, a free night will save you well over $1,000. And there is no limit on how many times you get a free night.

FHRNews provides a twice weekly newsletter to keep you informed of all of these free night offers. Sign up here and join over 2,000 Platinum members who get notified of the Free Night offers available through Fine Hotels and Resorts. As a bonus, I'll also send you my Platinum Benefits course to help you get enrolled in ALL of the Platinun benefits you care about

Who Am I?

My name is Tom, and I've been an American Express Platinum card member for almost 20 years. For most of those years, I didn't really understand my Platinum card benefits, so I left a lot of money on the table when I traveled.

I started FHRNews to help others avoid the same mistakes I've made.

What Is Fine Hotels and Resorts?

American Express Platinum card members get access to a hotel program that has over 900 luxury hotels worldwide. Each hotel provides a set of benefits to card members that book with Amex for their stay. You'll get:

  • Free Breakfast for 2 every morning of your stay
  • Guaranteed 4pm Check-out
  • Early Check-in if available
  • Room Upgrade at check-in, if available
  • Free WiFi
  • A Property Specific benefit - usually a $100 credit of some type

In addition, many hotels have Free Night offers throughout the year. These are usually 3rd or 4th night free, and are in addition to the benefits I listed above. Not all Fine Hotels and Resorts have these free nights, and each offer ends on a different date. My FHRNews newsletter will keep you informed of all of these offers as they're added, and before they end, so you'll never miss out on saving hundreds of dollars on your stays

American Express Centurion card members get all of the above benefits, plus a few extra benefits that can include Room Upgrade at booking and an extra Property Specific benefit
