A family of homothets of an o-symmetric convex body K in d-dimensional Euclidean space is called a Minkowski arrangement if no homothet contains the center of any other homothet in its interior. We show that any pairwise intersecting Minkowski arrangement of a d-dimensional convex body has at most 2*3^d members. This improves a result of Polyanskii (Discrete Mathematics 340 (2017), 1950--1956). Using similar ideas, we also give a proof the following result of Polyanskii: Let K_1,....,K_n be a
