Hilton Hotels‘ reward program Hilton Honors is offering a Status Match Challenge. If you participate, you’ll be upgraded to Hilton Honors Gold for 90 days. If you gather 8 qualifying nights by the end of the 90 days trial period, you will be upgraded permanently through March 31, 2025. By gathering 14 or more nights within the 90 days trial period, you will even be upgraded to Hilton Honors Diamond Status for almost two years.

Hilton Honors Gold is quite worth it: It includes free breakfast (outside the USA) and, depending on availability, an upgrade in Conrad, Hilton, Doubletree and Curio Hotels! Additional benefits of Hilton Honors Diamond include Executive Lounge access and free premium Wi-Fi.


To take part in this status match challenge, you’ll need photographic proof of your membership in a competing reward program. A picture of your membership card or a screenshot will be enough. Further, you’ll need to proof that you stayed at one of this chains hotel over the past 24 months. Again, a screenshot of your reservation or a copy of your receipt will suffice.

You’ll upload these documents on the landing page. Within two weeks, you should receive an answer.

    I cant confirm that it works for accor. I have accor gold and I keep being denied without a reason. Every time I had to wait full 2 weeks. The keyword they use is “unable” but without giving specific cause. The reply is as follows:
    “We regret to inform you that we were unable to verify your status match application submitted on . Please resubmit your documents using the online status.”

      Ive has the same errors, switched browser (to firefox) and it worked. IMO make sure you dont have any adblocking, anti-tracking plugins enabled.
