    Hi all.. I would like to share my experiences with status matches and know more about other opportunities we might have.
    My experiences are the following:

    DL -> UA = Gives you status for 90 days with a challenge
    DL -> Alaska = Match
    Marriott -> Hilton = Challenge (I was downgraded from Marriott Gold to Silver this year and HHonors offered me Gold if I completed 5 stays within 90 days.. In the end I didn't need that thanks to P2).
    DL -> AA = Challenge if pay a fee

    What else did you guys get?

    Hilton Gold = HH Diamond challenge (21 nights in 90 days)
    Hilton Diamond = Hyatt GP Challenge into Diamond (12 nights in 60 days)
    Hilton Diamond = Club Carlson match (Gold)
    Hilton Diamond = IHG Platinum match

    Hyatt will status match from all the major US programs up to their top level of Diamond. They generally give you most of the benefits (no Diamond suite upgrades initially) immediately and then require you stay X nights to retain status. Call it a hybrid status match/challenge.

    Best Western Diamond = IHG Platinum
    Best Western Diamond = Club Carlson Gold

    both no strings attached and immediate status match.
