Hilton extended my Diamond status thru March 2018
At the end of the 2015 there was an all out free for all for top tier status. Hilton was amongst those matching status and ran an “honor your status” program – as a result, I was able to match to Hilton Diamond status with my Hyatt Diamond status until March of 2017. THEN, midway through 2016 ( around April if memory serves) Hilton ran a follow up “honor your status” program that would grant status through 2018. There were many data points that showed current Hilton Diamonds were getting rematched. I thought what the heck and I requested that Hilton extend my status. I never heard back. I had hoped that Hilton extended my Diamond status thru March 2018 and never informed me. This never happens, but one must dream!!!
Let’s be honest…It’s great getting access to buffet breakfasts and club levels like I did at the Hanoi Hilton where I just stayed.
I was very surprised today
I wanted to see if my Hilton Hanoi points had credited and logged into my account. I saw something intriguing…it listed what I needed to do to maintain status for 2018… I figured my status ran out March 2017, but was confused over it saying to “maintain diamond status in 2018.”
I couldn’t quickly find the date when my status would expire so I chatted with an online rep named Mart…
Hilton extended my diamond status thru March 2018! BYAH!
This just goes to show that it never hurts to try, attempt, and ask – you never know what you may get. Looking forward to another year of Hilton Diamond =) BYAH!
