Status match request site: https://hiltonhhonors.hiltonapps.com/

Note new terms as of March 2017 (or a Little earlier - changed validity to 2019):
For the next 90 days, get a taste of the elite life with Hilton HHonors.
We'll match your elite status with any other loyalty program.

You'll also have the opportunity to extend your status match through March 31, 2019, when you stay with us over the next 90 days. If you're matched to Gold status, you'll just need to complete 4 stays. If you're matched to Diamond, you'll need 8 stays.

I stayed at several IHG properties in the last year. All were booked with OTAs. I just got Gold status with them through their credit card. Can I use a screenshot of a thank you letter from a previous stay (even though it was booked through OTA) and doesn't have an actual receipt to prove that I stayed within 12 months?

Give it a try. I just received HH Diamond matched to Best Western Diamond. My proof of stay was a text format email confirmation which didn't even include the price or my Best Western account details.

While I (think I) understand the goals of HHonors with these matches, my heart still aches with each of these success matches as I plan my various Hilton stays to re-qualify for Diamond the hard way. Still, I hope the folks who signed up appreciate what was done for them and turn towards the HHonors program. With a large pool of 'Elite' members, it might inspire more properties to be re-flagged under HHonors and thus providing more choices.

TY for the good news. How long did it take to get matched after submitting?

And from now to 01 May, get Starbucks gold status with one purchase either using your card ... or using the app.

Took about 60hrs. I did it on Monday, received e-mail confirmation last night. Status already updated in HH app.

My BW Diamond status was originally matched to my HH Diamond, which just expired at the start of the month. I was down to Silver for 2 weeks.

I would recommend matching HH status to Best Western to use for future status matches.

Matched to HH Gold from Marriott Gold. From all I can tell, doesn't seem to be a huge different between HH Gold and Diamond.

Psh. And to think I earned my Gold status the hard way, by buying things. It's the SBUX version of earning based on nights/stays.

I'm confused by this line in the T&Cs "Offer only redeemable once for the lifetime of the promotion." Is HH status match once per lifetime or can you only match once during a current promotion?

Had no reply as well for extension, will try tweeting. :-:

UPDATE: Got a reply saying that my account is already HHD through March 2018. I did not receive an email so I did not know, also where is this information located on the account ? Can't find it anywhere.

I can't find my expiry date anywhere. It used to show when you looked at your card on the app but it's changed now.

I tried for a match to Diamond through 2018 through the website as well three weeks ago, and also received no response. I emailed HHonors to ask for an update and was told I am Diamond through 2018!

My situation is a little different as I was given a Diamond challenge back in February based on my Marriott Platinum Premier, so it may have been easier for me to get my HHD status extended.

Did you guys get an email confirmation when you submitted? I submitted my husband's Marriott Plat info on Saturday and haven't heard anything.
