Hilton Diamond Status Match Now Available (IHG Platinum Works)

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Hilton is offering status matches up to their highest tier (Diamond). You need to have status with another hotel chain and must have stayed with them at least once in the past year. Matched status will be valid until March, 2018. Here is what you need with the other loyalty programs to be matched to diamond:
    • IHG: Platinum Elite (comes for free with the co-branded credit card)
    • Let me know if you’re succesful with other programs

The Fine Print

  • Hilton HHonors elite tier status will be valid through March 2018, thereafter; standard tier requirements must be met to maintain elite status
  • Please allow up to 10 business days for your upgraded elite status to be reflected in your HHonors account profile
  • If you’ve received a status match that is currently still valid, I don’t think you can get it extended to the new 2018 date. Happy to be corrected in the comments.

  • 30 stays in a calendar year, or

Our Verdict

I don’t find any elite status to be particularly valuable for Hilton, but it’s better than not having any status at all and I imagine a lot of people will have Platinum (or Spire) with IHG and have at least one paid stay (from promo chasing) with IHG so probably worth grabbing. Let me know if you succesfully status match from any other programs.

I was matched to Hilton Diamond using my Hyatt Diamond later last year. Now I tried to do the same thing again and the system says my email and member # has already been used.

Does anyone know if the 5th night free benefit can be stacked with the Prestige 4th night free benefit? So pretty much book 5 nights, pay for 3?

Sure cant. Two different programs. What u could do is book 9 days and pay for 7.

That’s clever. Hadn’t thought of that. Though you’d have to request the same room, which shouldn’t be a huge issue.

Any idea on whether Hilton Honors status can be matched more than one time in life? I may only have a few stay at Hilton next year so would like to save this if it only offers matching once per person? Thanks for any tip and help!

I’m surprised reservations for the future work since the terms specifically state “previous reservations”. I was thinking of doing a cheap $80 stay at an IHG to get my 6k points and qualify for the 2018 Diamond match.

Same experience as Ted. For those who hate calling, asking them on twitter helps as well.
