Earning Hilton’s highest Status is a great milestone for any Points and Miles enthusiast. The easiest way, if you can’t meet the Hilton Diamond stays/nights requirements (30 stays or 60 nights or 120,000 base points a year, yikes) is by getting a Credit Card that comes with Hilton’s Gold Status (American Express Platinum, American Express Hilton Surpass or Citi’s Hilton Reserve) and Call Hilton Honors to request a Diamond Status Challenge (X number of nights within a 90 day period). The second way is to get either the Chase Hyatt or IHG credit card(s) as each of these come with Platinum Status, and call Hilton Honors and request a Status Match. There are a few other ways to obtain Hilton Diamond by meeting certain credit card spending thresholds but these are usually fairly high ($35k+)
This Matters: BEFORE you start this process, call Hilton Honors (800-548-8690) and make sure each offer is current and being offered at the time. They are more than willing to help you obtain this goal.
