What If I Don't Stay At The Hilton? Why Get A Status Match I Likely Won't Use?

Why bother matching an elite status for a hotel or airline you are not likely to use?

The short answer is, with a status match like this on the table from ANY loyalty program, you should be taking every step possible to get matched. Here's why.

  1. Hilton Honors Diamond status takes 30 stays or 60 nights to reach. That requires an enormous commitment and thousands of dollars to achieve, and Hilton is matching Diamond all the way through to 2018.
  2. Honors has some great perks which we list below, but a few of the highlights include receiving your 5th Night Free, 48-Hour Room Guarantee, and who doesn't love a Complimentary Breakfast.
  3. March 2018 is almost two years away. Can you say with absolute certainty you will not stay at a Hilton inside these two years? Because even if you only stay once, you could save yourself hundreds of dollars by signing up for this status match now.
  4. If you are looking for a cracking start at collecting Honors rewards points, the 50% Elite Status Bonus raises your points earning ability significantly for a better return on your spend.
  5. It costs nothing but your time.
