Just made the same 2 restaurant reservation requests via Amex plat and JPM concierges. Both reservations are for 30+ days out. One restaurant (Torrisi Italian Specialties) opens up availability tomorrow for their chef's tasting menu and the other (per se) on Wednesday. I'll post back once I get word.

Being that I have used the amex concierge before, I liked being able to email my requests. First time using JPM, I had to call and the person I spoke to was OK at best. Sounded like english was her second language. And it was slightly annoying to have to repeat the spelling of my last name upon calling and then again when giving my email address.

Just received an email from AMEX....they got a spot at Torrisi at their earlier seating. I emailed back to see if the later seating was available.

So right now...AMEX is leading. We'll see how this turns out.

AMEX emailed back pretty much right away that they switched us to the late seating. I called JPM to cancel that one request. We'll see who snags us the Per Se reservation tomorrow.

To get to platinum do you have to stay 75 nights or just an additional 25?

75 nights for Platinum. The Gold Status does not include credit for stays, only the level of status.

Getting this card has had the odd effect of making me stay LESS in Ritz and Marriott properties...

Marriott Platinum is hard to achieve. With this card and spend, I'll be Gold next year. Good enough.

So I just did a Diamond challenge with Hilton (21 nights / 90 days) and now have Diamond too...

Was wondering about the gold status. I was told on the phone it is good for 12 months, so would be my anniversary date on June 15, 2013. Marriott levels are good from Feb-Feb so I wonder how this will be adjusted.

Does this card use the same concierge as the Palladium card?

My experience with this concierge has been pretty dismal so far.

Has anyone with a MArriott card tried signing up for this on the hopes they won't notice that you have the card and get the 50k anyway? What was the outcome? I've had the Marriott Preferred card and don't want to give it up, but I've had it for 2 years; would hope that's long enough they don't remember me

I've been largely disappointed with my card, as most of the RC benefits they tout are not applied unless you book under the rack rate.

Except for the one killer benefit: Gold status for a $395 annual fee plus $10K spend...

I have had to argue with one property to receive the Club Floor upgrade even on rack rate ("It's a busy weekend."), and cancelled a second reservation and moved to a Fairmont because of the runaround they were giving me on the upgrade.

Chase needs to crack the whip on RC. RC gets a lot of money from Chase, they need to step up and deliver.
