Hilton Diamond Status From Aspire Will Count Towards Lifetime Diamond
Brian over at The Gate pointed out something regarding the new Hilton Aspire card that I hadn’t thought about before. The card comes with Diamond status among other benefits, Hilton also offers lifetime Diamond status if you meet the following qualifications:
- Have earned Diamond Status for at least 10 years (non-consecutive) AND
- Who have done one of the following:
- Have completed stays totaling at least 1,000 paid and reward nights
- Have earned at least 2 million Base Points over life of membership
The Aspire card won’t really help with either of the second qualifications (apart from giving you some free nights towards the 1,000 total) but it does give you Diamond Status for at least one year. I’ve double confirmed with American Express & Hilton that Diamond status earned from the card will count towards the 10 year requirement.
This won’t be very useful for most people as hitting the 1,000 night requirement or 2,000,000 base point requirement would be difficult for most people. But it might be useful to some road warriors that have already hit that requirement and haven’t earned diamond status for a total of ten years yet.
