希爾頓教學:希爾頓 Status Match 會籍挑戰,金卡挑戰 8 晚,鑽卡挑戰 14 晚

希爾頓存在已久的 Status Match 活動經歷了好幾次更新。曾經的挑戰任務是按 stay 計算,註冊後 90 天內完成 4 次入住升級金卡,完成 8 次入住升級鑽石卡。後來改為按 night 計算,在一定程度上提升了任務的難度和挑戰成本。

當前挑戰任務調整為:金卡挑戰需完成 8 晚住宿;鑽卡挑戰需完成 14 晚住宿。

完成挑戰後獲得的會籍有效期到 2026 年 3 月 31 日,這意味着您可以持有希爾頓的金卡或鑽卡會籍最多接近 2 年時間。

只要您從未申請過 Status Match,白板或銀卡會員都可以申請。已有金卡或鑽卡會員不能申請。每名會員終身只能申請一次。

一、什麼是 Status Match

Status Match 直接翻譯就是「狀態匹配」。意思就是說,當您已經擁有 A 集團的精英會員資格,那麼您可以申請 B 集團提供的「Status Match」服務,來獲得 B 集團對應等級的精英會員資格。透過「Status Match」您不需要按照正常規則,累積足夠的房晚或者積分,就能獲得高級會員資格。

很久以前希爾頓開放匹配的時候,只要提交了有效的第三方集團的高級會員資料,基本上人人都可以獲得透過,而且並不需要您完成挑戰任務,所以那時候是零成本獲得希爾頓的金卡、鑽石卡。但是現在不一樣了,現在可能叫做「Status Challenge」更合適,因為您必須要在註冊任務後,90 天內完成挑戰任務才能獲得升級。

貌似現在在各大酒店集團中,只有希爾頓有長期開放 Status Match 活動,其他酒店集團偶爾才會有一次。希爾頓 Status Match 有一個好處,就是在 90 天的挑戰期間,您都能獲得金卡的待遇。如果您由於某些原因需要短期內入住一下希爾頓旗下的酒店,那麼只要申請一下挑戰就能馬上獲得金卡的各種待遇。

二、申請挑戰

您必須透過下方的希爾頓官方指定申請地址,填寫表格和提交資料,等客服透過後才能獲得挑戰資格。

申請地址:
https://www.hiltonhonors.com/en_US/status-match/landing/

填寫表格並不困難,您只要提供姓名、電郵地址、希爾頓榮譽客會會員賬號即可。如果還沒有會員賬號,新註冊一個就行了(註冊地址)。

希爾頓教學:希爾頓 Status Match 會籍挑戰,金卡挑戰 8 晚,鑽卡挑戰 14 晚

Status Match 最重要的是,您需要提交合資格的第三方酒店集團的精英會員資料。目前希爾頓聲明支援的第三方酒店集團會員計劃包括:

根據條款,只有上述列表中的酒店集團才能申請 Status Match。但是其他酒店集團仍然可以提交申請,只是透過幾率可能比較低。

注意:與以往不同的是,現在您只能 match 到金卡(90 天有效期),而不能直接 match 鑽卡。也就是說申請透過後,在挑戰期間您只能享有金卡待遇,鑽卡待遇需在完成挑戰後才能享有。

填寫表單時,您需要提交兩份資料,而且必須以 .jpg 或 .png 文件格式上傳。

一份是第三方酒店集團會員等級證明:

一份是您在第三方酒店集團過去 12 個月內的入住記錄:

這兩份資料,您都只需要提供 .jpg 或 .png 格式的熒幕截圖即可,不會截圖的用手機拍照也行。如果擔心隱私泄露,您可以把除了自己的姓名和會員號之外的所有訊息抹掉。實際上希爾頓不可能獲得第三方酒店集團的會員數據庫,所以也就無法比對資料的真實性,這就給了不少人造假的空間。

提交申請後,通常約 7 - 12 個工作日就能得到客服的郵件回覆。郵件上會註明您已經獲得 90 天的金卡資格,在有效期之前完成挑戰任務即可獲得正式升級。

三、挑戰任務

申請透過後您就可以馬上做任務了。前面也已經說了,現在的任務比以前的難度提升了不少,但是這只是針對一些為挑戰而挑戰的人來說。對於某些剛需來說就不一定了,例如出差黨,一次出差可能就住個 10 天 8 天的,以 night 來計算任務就更容易和更方便,還不用為了切 stay 而煩惱。

  • 金卡挑戰任務:成功申請後 90 天內完成 8 晚住宿
  • 鑽卡挑戰任務:成功申請後 90 天內完成 14 晚住宿

雖然說挑戰成本比以前提升了,但是相比正常的升級條件還是非常划算的。正常保級/升級條件:

  • 金卡:在一個日曆年內完成 20 次住宿,或在一個日曆年內完成 40 晚住宿,或在一個日曆年內賺取 75,000 點希爾頓榮譽客會基本積分。
  • 鑽卡:在一個日曆年內完成 30 次住宿,或在一個日曆年內完成 60 晚住宿,或在一個日曆年內賺取 120,000 點希爾頓榮譽客會基本積分。

有一點要注意的是,曾經希爾頓 Status Match 積分房也算有效入住,但是現在已經不算了。

做任務之前別忘記看看有哪些優惠活動可以利用,進一步降低挑戰成本。關於希爾頓的最近活動可以參考此文章:

此外,2019 年年初希爾頓宣布,中國的歡朋酒店(Hampton)正式加入榮譽客會計劃。希爾頓在中國有大量的歡朋酒店,價格都比較便宜,做任務時大家可以考慮入住此品牌,降低挑戰成本。

完成挑戰任務後,通常約 1 個星期就能獲得正式升級。

四、金卡、鑽石卡待遇

希爾頓的金卡待遇已經非常不錯,主要包括免費早餐,額外 80% 積分獎勵,免費升級房型等。

鑽石卡和金卡的待遇相差並不太多,主要區別是金卡最高只能升級至行政房,而鑽卡最高可升級至套房。鑽卡無論入住任何房型都可以使用行政酒廊,而金卡只有升級到行政房時才能使用。在入住某些酒店時,金卡需要在早餐和積分獎勵之間二選一,鑽卡能同時擁有。

如非必要,金卡已經足夠日常使用,還能減少日後保級的成本支出。

五、總結

現在 Status Match 以 night 計算,難度有所提升,估計希爾頓精英會員的數量會有一定下降。但是從另一個角度來看未必不是一件好事,這意味着希爾頓精英會員的含金量有所提升。

想想在水鑽橫行的年代,行政酒廊人滿為患,服務質量必然下降。對於那些真正住出來的希爾頓真愛粉來說,也相對不公平,甚至有脫粉的風險。

最後還有一個問題,有些人可能無法打開申請頁面,或者填寫好表格後卻無法提交,可能會看到提示:You must pass the recaptcha 。這是因為希爾頓為了防止有人使用機器惡意提交,需要您「進行人機身份驗證」。

這個驗證功能是由 Google 提供的,所以必須使用你懂的上網方式才能看到。▼
