    I would wait until you are clear of your status match before trying the fast track. You will either be rejected for the fast track or will make a complete mess of your account...


    I would point out that instead of just meeting the status match requirements in early 2020 and then using the MVP fast track in 2022/2023 to keep Gold until mid-decade, you will have burned through your Hilton short cuts very quickly...

    Thanks. Good point about burning through my short cuts quickly. I signed up for the status match (which ends early December) shortly before I had to cancel some stays due to illness :( To meet the 9 night status match requirement, I'd have to get about 5 nights of extra stay in just over a month - which for the cheaper places in e.g. Aberdeen would cost a couple of hundred. Open to ideas if I'm missing something, though!

    If the MVP fast track and match combined will likely mess up my account, I will wait till a later date - thanks! It was just tempting to qualify for the MVP while enjoying gold benefits from the match :)

    You can use points for your status match nights although there aren't really many super cheap UK hotels on points anyhow.

    I also tend to stay at Hamptons when status-less and doing a challenge to get it back. With free breakfast and no real upgrades (and typically cheaper) it's far less painful...
