I suspect many of you have newly minted Hilton HHonors Gold status thanks to this promo. That’s fantastic, but what if you’re more interested in Hyatt’s Diamond status because of their 4 suite upgrades, lounge access, breakfast and more? You may be in luck.
Hyatt is offering a status challenge to Hilton Gold members that will net you Diamond status if you meet the requirements. They’ll give you trial Diamond status for 60 days. If you stay 12 nights during that period, you’ll be Diamond through February 2013 (plus they’re throwing in 1,000 bonus points per night for the first 6 nights). Not too shabby.
Just email Hyatt Gold Passport here, and they’ll email you back requesting proof (screenshot) of your Hilton status, and they’ll lay out the rules of the challenge.
UPDATE: Or maybe not. Hyatt now seems to be requiring you to show that you have some Hilton activity before they’ll let you do the match. In other words, they’re aware of the Hilton Gold promo. YMMV.
