Lol. My guess is not as they probably validate the member number.

How do they know what your status is with the other hotel?

True they may not,  but my guess is that they confirm that your number is valid as well as that the status you gave is accurate.

Having a valid number is easy, having the status is harder

True say! I'd give it a shot, but I don't want to risk losing my gold status...

Yea, if they know you tried to pull one over on them you're screwed.

This is the same one from last year. They've only extended it and now you only get a 90 day challenge to cement whichever status you are matched to.

Four stays for Gold and Eight for Diamond.

I matched to Diamond from having IHG card. It was good till 3/31/17. I never actually made it to a Hilton property, though.

I received diamond status from matching my Hyatt status back in Dec. 2015 that expired March 2017. I haven't had an opportunity to record a single stay up until this coming summer. I called CS and I just asked nicely if they would be willing to provide me status for my upcoming trip as a courtesy and they upgraded my status to diamond from silver exp. march 2019. I did not need nor was I asked if I hold any status with any other programs.

Anyone else have this experience?

what number did you call. I tried the same and was told to do a status match

800-446-6677 - pressed 5. The CS rep just did a search of past promotions available to Diamond members which usually had to have some threshold met but gave it to me as a courtesy. Seemed a little too easy, hence my post. Not sure if I just got lucky or if this is common practice.

I finally got it in writing from a supervisor that it will count, so hopefully will be ok.

Good to know. Award stays count towards lifetime status
