It has been confirmed by many blog readers that the Hilton Status Match offer that I wrote about a few weeks ago is working! With this promotion, you can receive Hilton elite status through March 2018 as long as you have status with another airline. And for those that already have Hilton status, this will allow you to extend your status (even if you received it during the previous status match promotion)!
While the promotion does not give a cut and try chart of what status you’ll earn based on your other loyalty programs status, my best guest is listed below (and also based what happened in the Fall with the previous status match):
- Hilton Gold = SPG Gold, Marriott Gold, Ritz-Carlton Gold, Hyatt Platinum, IHG Platinum Elite, Club Carlson Gold
- Hilton Diamond = SPG Platinum, Marriott Platinum, Ritz-Carlton Platinum, Hyatt Diamond, IHG Spire Elite, Club Carlson Concierge
Hilton status is one of my favorite statuses since you receive free breakfast even as a Gold. So if you have mid or top tier status at another hotel chain, I highly recommend going for the status match. You’ll be required to upload a screen shot on this Hilton site showing proof of status as one as one stay at that chain within the past 12 months. You have until June 30, 2016 to do this.
I would like to get the status match for my Hyatt Gold but when I click on the link I don’t see anything about a match. Could you help? thanks.
I just found an article on Lucky’s blog mentioning another link that should work: https://hiltonhhonors.hiltonapps.com/
Matching Hyatt Gold? Their basic membership level? Or did you mean Hyatt Platinum?
Anyway, try the above link.
How does one know if the status match (extension) was successful?
I haven’t found a place that notes the expiration date of one’s status.
As an HHonors Gold member you only receive free breakfast if you choose so.
When staying at a Hilton, DoubleTree, …, gold members can choose to either receive breakfast or 1,000 points. While a Diamond member doesn’t need to choose, he receives free breakfast plus the points.
I just found on Lucky’s blog that there is a working link:
Hyatt Gold? That is their basic level, did you mean Hyatt Platinum?
Anyway, try the above link (haven’t checked if it works, just read about it).
“Through 2018” should be “through March 2018”.
Match to status with another airline???
@Gene – Thanks for pointing that out. You can only match with a hotel, not an airline.
My wife got matched to her Hyatt Diamond (till February 28, 2017) to Hilton Diamond (till March 31, 2018)
It looks like Hilton closed there status match page 🙁
Just found another link that works … https://hiltonhhonors.hiltonapps.com/
Received notification of my status change today! took about a week….
Wife got IHG Spire Elite matched to Hilton Diamond. Notification came through email a couple of days ago.
I received the status match a few months ago and the a few weeks ago requested the date extension that the new match offers. No response. I emailed last week again. No response.
How do you upload a screenshot of my other hotel status onto this Hilton site?
