1. Hilton Status Match Extended to March 2018
Update: The Points Guy reports Hilton is having trouble with its status match website. However, you may still be able to request a match through this link. Or by emailing proof of status with a competing chain, proof of stay and Hilton HHonors account number to email@example.com.
Via The Points Guy, Hilton has extended its status match program.
So, if you have elite status with a competing hotel chain, like Choice, Hyatt, IHG, Marriott, or Starwood, Hilton will upgrade your HHonors Elite status to match.
You can submit your status match application online by June 30, 2016. Along with something that shows your elite status with another program (like a screenshot). And proof of a stay with that program in the past 12 months.
You’ll get Hilton HHonors elite status through March 31, 2018. And they’ll match to Silver, Gold, or Diamond, depending on your status in another program.

And remember, certain credit cards give you automatic hotel elite status. For instance, the Chase Hyatt card gives you Hyatt Platinum status. And folks with the Chase IHG Rewards Club Select receive automatic IHG Platinum elite status.
During Hilton’s last status match promotion, many folks reported receiving Hilton Diamond status (executive lounge access, room upgrades, late check-out when available, and free breakfast at some hotels) when they matched to IHG Platinum elite status.
So this deal is a no-brainer for folks with the Chase IHG card, which comes with automatic Platinum Elite status!
