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.
