If you spent more than 60 nights with Hilton in 2018, time is quickly running out for you to take advantage of one of your perks from the Honors program: Gifting status to another Honors member. When Hilton refreshed the program in 2018, it added the ability for members to gift their level of status to someone else.

The Highlights:

  • You have until Jan. 31 to gift status to another member.
  • Gifted status is good for 365 days from the gift date; it doesn’t follow the program year.
  • You can not change who you gifted the status to during the year.

It’s important to note this benefit to gift status is based solely on nights. The ability to gift status to someone else will kick in at the 60-night mark and enable you to gift Gold status, at 100 nights you can gift Diamond. If you have already gifted status, that person would be upgraded to Diamond once you hit that mark.

When you are ready to send your gift, simply head over to the Hilton’s gifting status page. Once there, you can fill out the form and submit. You will need the name, email address and Honors account number of your lucky recipient.
