Hilton Diamond Status
For a limited time, Hilton is offering a Hilton Diamond status match from any top tier hotel loyalty status to Hilton Honors Diamond. Hotel loyalty programs stopped doing status matches for some time now, but the acquisition of SPG by Marriott seems to have sparked off a chain reaction.
Here’s what Hilton wrote last week:
We’re winding down for the Thanksgiving holiday and, as a heads up, I will be out of the office until Monday, but I wanted to let you know about our status match program…
We’ve been receiving a number of requests and yes, we do match status from other programs and we’d love to be your travel home.
- We are matching status for 2016. To make sure you’re all set for the year, please submit your request by January 11, 2016. You’ll enjoy that status through March 2017.
- All you need is something that shows your elite tier in another program and an HHonors number.
- Email us at HHonorMyStatus@hilton.com and we’ll help get you started.
Please note it may take a couple of days to process given the Thanksgiving holiday. We promise to process requests as quickly as possible and any request submitted prior to January 11, 2016, will be processed in time to enjoy your new status for the entire year.
Here’s my account after receiving the success email :
Dear Mr. Aamir:
Congratulations! Your HHonors account, *********, has been upgraded to Diamond Elite status through March 31, 2017. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery of your new card.
The status match for Hilton Diamond Status will last till 11 January 2016. So, if you are a member of another top tier program, you can get the hilton diamond status through March 2017.
Simply email HHonorMyStatus@hilton.com with a screenshot of your competing program (E.g IHG Spire Elite) & your HHonors membership number.
Good luck !
