hilton-logoLast week, I wrote about how Hilton is (was?) offering status matches to customers who have status in other programs.

This followed up Hyatt’s move to ALSO give out Diamond status earlier in the week, probably as a response to Marriott’s purchase of the Starwood hotel group.  As for me, after even fantasizing about the 7 places I’d go with my new Hyatt Diamond status, I ended up only getting matched to Hyatt Platinum 🙁

Anyone gotten their new Hilton status yet?

I imagine that with the long weekend, Hilton is working through a HUGE backlog of status match requests.  I did see a post from Miles to Memories that he had been matched from his Hyatt Diamond to Hilton Diamond.  He was one of the first people to post about this, so I imagine that his request was fairly early in the queue.

Personally, I sent my request to at Wednesday at 8:14 p.m. Eastern time and have not yet heard anything.  The reports from the Flyertalk thread don’t report anyone else that has heard anything.

I’m “only” IHG Platinum since I didn’t get matched to Hyatt Diamond, so I’m not entirely sure that I’ll get matched to Hilton Diamond anyways, and I’m already Hilton Gold so it might not get me anything anyways.

Anyone else heard back from Hilton yet?  Leave a note in the comments if you have or haven’t, with a note of when you sent your email in and what status you are matching from.  Hopefully that will give everyone an idea of when they might expect to hear something.
