Hilton Honors status match and 90-day elite challenge for status to March 2021

Hilton Honors revised its status match and elite challenge program. The current rules apply year-round and require a Hilton Honors member who wants a status match to provide proof of current status with another hotel loyalty program. A screenshot jpg. photo image is sufficient. You also need to provide proof of a hotel stay in that program in past 12 months. Screenshot .jpg image is sufficient. Do not include personal information like address and phone in your proof images.

Members accepted into the status match program will be provided Gold elite for 90 days.

  • Every eligible member will be matched to trial Gold – there will no longer be an option for Status Match to Diamond tier.
    • Complete 10 nights within 90 days, and your Gold status will be extended through March 31, 2021.
    • Complete 18 nights within 90 days, and you will be upgraded to Diamond status through March 31, 2021.

Acceptable forms of status validation include a screenshot of your current and active account status. Acceptable forms of stay validation include a screenshot of your recent reservations or hotel receipt, redacting any personal information other than your name and membership number. We accept .jpg files only. Please do NOT send us any personal information (including your phone number, address, social security number, date of birth, user name, passwords, or credit card information).

Hilton reserves the right to decline any application at any time for any reason. Please allow 5 -7 business days for Hilton Honors to process your request. Hilton may require additional validation in its complete discretion which may take an additional 5 -7 business days. The 90 day status match trial period starts once approved. Only members who have not previously completed a status match challenge are eligible. Reward stays do not count toward achieving the status match requirements. Frequently Asked Questions.
