The actual link/button to select your benefits is the nearly-unreadable blue-on-red text in the screenshot below that says "SELECT YOUR CHOICE BENEFITS"


You'll need to be logged in to make any actual selections (if you aren't already logged in, clicking on the button will redirect you to the login page)

Reminder to select 2020 Plat/Diamond Choice Benefits!

A reminder that you MUST select any remaining Platinum or Diamond Choice Benefits no later than January 31, 2021.
There are no exceptions to this!

Thanks for the reminder. I didn't make Plat in 2020 but my wife did. Where does she go to access the list of benefits and select one to be applied?

Login to website (easier than with app). Then just search 'choice benefits' and you'll be taken straight to page where you select choice benefits for which you're eligible.

A couple of really important reminders:

1.) At this point, do NOT select "gift silver/gold medallion status." This benefit expires January 31, 2021, REGARDLESS OF WHEN YOU SELECT IT. Meaning, if you gifted status to some one, they'd have it all of 8 days at this point.

2.) RUC/GUCs are valid from one year AFTER selection date. Therefore, wait to select them on January 31 for the maximum length of time you can.

Re: (1) I thought consensus was that status gifted from 2020 choice benefits was extended regardless of when it was selected? Is that not the case?

General distilled wisdom about choice benefits can be found in: Platinum and Diamond Medallion Choice Benefits (The Definitive Thread)

(see the wiki at the top of that thread for summary & references to other related threads)

I don't know what to select. Still have my PM and DM CB to pick. I would really like to select the GUCs but not sure how international travel will go this year, I don't want to waste them if I'm not traveling International.
Already have SC access with Reserve card. I'm leaning towards $200 credits or miles.

I went with miles. I don't need four more RUCs expiring on me.

Where's the link to choose? I logged on to the choice benefit page but didn't see a link to make choices!

Appreciate the reminder, first off (to OP).

The link is there, but the button appears to be rendering funny. It's a red button just above the top of the list.

Your right! It was almost invisible, like the very last few pages on the color blind screening test!

I'm on-line and have selected my remaining benefits, both Platinum and Diamond.

But, when I click on the "Review and Confirm" button, a pop-up window flashes, too quick to read, and the selection page remains as before. Still shows what I selected, but does not show them as being confirmed.

Yep! It definitely took me a second to find it.
