After the Marriott-Starwood merger announcement and this week’s big Hyatt-status-match frenzy, Hilton has decided to step into the game. According to a post on Flyertalk, Hilton will be matching tier status through March of 2017. To earn a status match, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information…
- Screenshot of your status from a competitor.
- Your HHonors member number.
That is ALL! Make sure you send the emails by January 11, 2016 at the latest. However, after the situation with Hyatt earlier this week, I recommend sending the email ASAP. While Hilton status may not be as valuable as other elite programs, it still provides some nice perks like 50% point-earning bonus and room upgrades! Good luck!
