    Do you mind explaining how to get a status match? I am only SPG Gold and would love to be Platinum!

    I think if you simply get A-Club Platinum, wait to get the card, then contact SPG and ask if they will status match you up to platinum. Let them know that since you are A_club platinum that you get better perks there and are tempted to change loyalties. I know it works for programs where you have no status. Not sure the success you'll have to upgrade you existing relationship, but it will only take a call to SPG to find out.

    Are you sure of this? I thought that SPG went away from direct matching and instead uses the Plat Challenge (IIRC, 15 nights within 90 days).

    I just signed up -- thanks! Is there any fine print to this? I couldn't see any, but just wondered if this was like the earlier Hilton deal where you received Gold status for 3 months, and it was extended to 15 months if you had three stays in the first 90 days. (I'm writing this from the Torrey Pines Hilton, where I'm thoroughly enjoying the perks of Gold status!)

    Not 100% sure, but have seen others have success. sometimes they mention a challenge, sometimes they match without a challenge

    Let's hope this doesn't get retracted like the bmi silver deal...

    Is there a way to sign if not a member with this promo, or does one need to sign up, then go through the promo link?

    I just signed up as a new member using the OP's link. My account already reflects Plat status

    I used a similar promo last year to get Platinum. Still have it although it expires in December. We were able to use it to get free room upgrades without any issues. There was no fine print last year so I imagine it'll work just as well now.

    Not sure if I can use it to extend my existing Platinum deadline...

    Thanks. I think the issue I was having was the email I was using was already in the system, so it didn't allow one to create a new member. I guess I must have signed up at some point in the past. Different email made it work fine.
