I Posted up about the Hilton Honors Diamond Status Match Earlier in the month, but since then Hilton have been changing around the promotion, and have added a new link. If you have any other top tier hotel status then this is for you, it’s available until 30th June 2016.
How to Get Your Hilton Honors Diamond Status Match
Hilton has made this pretty simple with a dedicated site for the match which is available here.
You’ll need to have existing status with another hotel program, likely to be their top level as Diamond is the highest Hilton Honors level available.
You’ll also need to provide some screenshots of your current status and proof that you’ve actually had some stays.
Previously they matched lower levels and they can only say no if you try so you might as well have a go, the link is here:
The offer runs until 30th June. I managed to miss the last opportunity to get my IHG Spire status matched so I’ve made sure this time I was hot on the heels of this offer.
Status is valid until 31st March 2018 which is standard Hilton policy – the remainder of the current year, all of the next year and then a three-month grace period until March.
What are the Benefits of Hilton Honors Diamond Status?
Mid-Tier Hilton Honors Status Gold gives you a free breakfast and some kind of upgrade (which could just be a nicer view). It’s worth more than most of the competing mid-tier levels. Hilton Diamond gives you that plus guaranteed lounge access at the hotels that have lounges available which are an excellent benefit.
You’ll also receive the usual other Hilton Honors status benefits including the 5th night free and a bonus on Hilton Honors points earn, full details can be found here:
I’ll actually be going for this as I wasn’t able to take advantage of the previous one and my Hilton HHonors Gold status has just run out, so I’m super happy this has come back. I’ll be matching my IHG Spire status to do so.
Combine this with Other Hilton Honors Promotions
Once you’ve got your Hilton Honors Diamond status don’t forget to combine it with the other promotions ongoing including some generous ones at Conrad and Waldorf Astoria hotels:
Failing a status match if you have a Visa Infinite credit card you could use the promotions as a cheap way to achieve the 2 stay requirements for the Fast Track.
