If you’re already an Amex Platinum Charge Cardmember, you would’ve received a notice from Amex regarding your eligibility to be enrolled on the Ascott Star Rewards (ASR) programme.
If you do decide to enrol yourself on this programme, you’ll also be eligible for the highest tier – Platinum.
To kick start your journey with Ascott, you’ll receive 1000 bonus ASR points when you sign up before 31 Dec 2019. You’ll be able to enjoy the Platinum tier benefits for 2 years upon signing up:
There is also a concurrent promotion where you’ll enjoy 10000 bonus ASR points as a Platinum member when you book a minimum of 3 nights at participating properties before 31 Dec 2019.
There’s no reason as to why you shouldn’t sign up for this programme. Although it remains to be seen if ASR will continue to be a mainstay as with the other hotel programme partners with Amex such as Hilton, Marriott Bonvoy, Radisson Rewards and Shangri-La Golden Circle.
