Hilton Honors announced they’ll be extending all elite status through March 31, 2023, which marks this as the third time since the pandemic that Hilton has extended elite status.
Additionally, they will be lowering 2022 elite requirements as well as adding bonus points for those who do earn status by staying with Hilton.
Here’s a rundown of the latest Hilton Honors extensions:
To truly offer the flexibility you need, we’re extending Hilton Honors benefits again.
- All elite status will be extended through March 2023
- All 2021 nights will rollover to next year
- No Points will expire until the end of 2022
- Elite status tier requirements lower than 2019 tier qualifications
These extensions are global so no matter where you are in the world, you will be able to enjoy these benefits and perks.
For US Cardmembers, the flexibility of certain benefits with our Hilton Honors American Express Cards are also being extended.
- Free Weekend Night Certificates can be used any night of the week
- Hilton Honors Bonus Points earned through eligible purchases will continue to count as Base Points through December 31, 2022
2022 status requirements will reflect a 30% reduction from 2019 qualifications:
- Silver: 7 nights, 3 stays or 17,500 Base Points
- Gold: 28 nights, 14 stays or 52,500 Base Points
- Diamond: 42 nights, 21 stays or 84,000 Base Points
Hilton Honors status is arguably one of the easiest hotel status to get among the big chains, so I’m not surprised that Hilton is extending status for everyone. I do not expect Marriott or Hyatt to fully extend status to all members.
Instead, I could see the others offering a double night promotion for Q4. I wouldn’t be surprised if they count Q4 nights for stay credit for both 2022 and 2023 as a way to encourage more stays the rest of the year.
