Hilton recently made a slew of changes to its loyalty program including a name change to Hilton Honors. As part of the changes, Hilton had extended a status match to other hotel elites and did the same for its elite members. If you hold Hilton Honors Diamond status, you may be eligible to extend it through to March 31, 2018.
Do You Qualify?
The extension for Hilton Honors Diamond status is open to members who meet the following criteria:
- The member currently holds Diamond status (through March 2017), and has been a Diamond member for at least the last three years, AND
- The member must have completed at least 250 nights (paid or reward) OR have earned 500,000+ Base Points since joining Hilton Honors.
Noteworthy aspects considering the recent status match Hilton offered is that you cannot use elite status from a status match as one of your qualifying years, and you cannot extend elite status earned through a status match.
How to Extend your Hilton Honors Diamond Status
Extending your status with Hilton is quick if you're eligible. Head over to the Hilton Honors Diamond Status Extension site and complete the form. It can take up to five business days for Hilton to approve your extension.
We're used to seeing loyalty programs devalue — it's great that Hilton is offering elites an easy way to extend status. This is Hilton's way to reward those that have been previously loyal; a great benefit which truly rewards loyalty!
If you don't qualify for the Diamond status extension you can still pick up complimentary Hilton Honors Diamond via the Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card or Gold status through many credit cards including The Platinum Card® from American Express, The Business Platinum Card® from American Express, the Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card, or the The Hilton Honors American Express Business Card. Don't forget, if you spend $40,000 in a calendar year on either of the later Hilton cards, you’ll earn Diamond status for the rest of the current year and the following year.
Will you be extending your Hilton Honors Diamond status for another year?
