Hilton Diamond VIP match
« Reply #5 on: December 06, 2009, 02:26:50 PM »
I am not sure if this was posted already but I didn't see it.  I called Hilton today and talked with customer service and they told me that they are honoring a status match with other hotels.  They will upgrade you to Diamond status if you can show comparable status with another chain.  They do ask you to fax in a statement showing that you have actual stays and not just a trial membership. 

Send fax to Member Services, subject: Diamond upgrade request.  Fax 972-788-1818

Hope this helps someone.

I think they want to see that you earned the status at the other chain with actual stays.  So however many stays it takes to get highest level at SPG or Hyatt or whichever chain you stay at.

« Reply #9 on: June 14, 2010, 07:59:39 PM »
I have 160,000 Hilton points, now that they devalued by their recent changes, is the AA promotion* the best I can do with them? or are there sometimes betters transfer offers? In general what can I do with these Hilton points?

 the higher the cat the more pts needed

the Amex CC doesnt have an annuslfee so you have nothing to lose by getting it but save some pts and get some for getting the cc
