Hilton Honors are offering free Diamond status if you match you current hotel program status with them by the 11th January.
How Do You Match for the Free Hilton Honors Diamond?
This status match has actually been ongoing for a little while and follows the Hyatt status match in November, I expect that some FST readers may have taken advantage of it already.
To match you need to follow these steps:
- Be an existing Hilton Honors member
- Take a screenshot showing your elite tier status in any other hotel program
- Then go through the dedicated site here: Free Hilton Honors Diamond Status Match
You can match pretty much any hotel program and even the lower tiers so if you only have Gold Status with SPG they may match with Gold or Silver for Hilton HHonors instead. Smaller hotel loyalty programs like Golden Circle appear to be valid too.
There is no harm in having a go even if you’re not sure.
The closing date for matches is 11th January and your status will run until the end of March 2017.
Benefits for Hilton Honors Diamond
Hilton Honors gives Diamond members the following benefits:
You would normally need 30 stays or 60 nights in a calendar year to get this, so it’s definitely a quick way to obtain the status.
The Diamond status isn’t that much better than the Gold status honestly so even if you only achieve that level you’ll be getting most of the way. The main additional benefit is guaranteed lounge access when staying at a Conrad, Hilton or Doubletree hotel even if you are not upgraded to the club floor.
Again here is the site for the match:
