A few weeks ago I wrote about an extremely generous status match opportunity from Hilton. With this offer, no Hilton stays are required and instead you’ll get instant status on Hilton if you can prove status at another loyalty program.
Based on some reports I’ve been reading, here are the statuses that have been matched:
Hilton HHonors Gold
- Marriott Gold
- Ritz-Carlton Gold
- Starwood Gold
- Hyatt Platinum
Hilton HHonors Diamond
- Marriott Platinum
- Ritz-Carlton Platinum
- Starwood Platinum
- Hyatt Diamond
- IHG Platinum or Spire Elite
- Accor Platinum
I’ve also read reports of folks getting upgraded to Gold and kindly responding back requesting Diamond. Some requests have been honored, so it is worth a try! Just make sure to make a compelling argument.
The best match is that they will give you Diamond status if you are IHG Platinum. For those not aware of the IHG Platinum program, you automatically receive Platinum just by having their credit card. This is also a very popular credit card since it only costs $49/year and you receive a free night at ANY IHG hotel every year. So I foresee many Hilton Diamond members this year…
To Claim Your Status Match…
Email HHonorMyStatus@hilton.com with a screen shot proving status with your other loyalty program. They state this will go through January 11, 2016, but I suggest requesting status sooner then later! They’ve been extremely quick responding and upgrading status.
