Only a few days ago, inspired by a recent post in the forums, I took the plunge and asked Hilton to status match my existing IHG loyalty; I'm a platinum member purely on the back of the IHG Premium Credit Card, but by some miracle I have spent enough on the card to actually qualify for Spire membership when the next statement hits. So I gave them all the proof and today I had an email to say it had processed. Despite only wanting and expecting to be matched to Gold status for 3 months, they have given me Diamond, so I'm exceptionally happy, and hoping for some free Lounge action in my next few stays. Great timing as my first stay is next Monday. Quick edit - it gets better as I have just discovered the Moments Made Bigger promotion and registered for that ! So that's the boast ! The question is this : The status match website says that you have to hit 4 stays in the next 90 days to keep Gold or 8 stays in the next 90 days to keep Diamond. I fully expect 8 to be too much, but 4 would be easy. However, my online Hilton account says I need 60 more nights and the app says I need 30 stays to retain Diamond. Does the status match requirement over-ride these 2 ? And why does one refer to nights and one refer to stays ? I am planning to contact Hilton to ask them, but thought I'd ask you experts as well as you may have been through the same thing. And the Hilton marketing is working; by giving me Diamond I am already planning to change an existing IHG reward night booking to a paid for Hilton stay, so that it counts towards 1 of my 4 stays in 90 days, and to experience the joy of whatever extras the particular DoubleTree gives me as part of my current Diamond status.
