UPDATE: Choice Privileges Diamond Status After One Cambria Stay (Instructions)

1 Comment

Choice Privileges launched last week an interesting offer for members that stay at least once at their Cambria-brand, but part of the offer was unclear.

There is an on-going status match offer for up to Platinum-status (read more here) for members who have status with competing programs. Members that stay at Cambria brand, however, are eligible for a Diamond.

You can access Choice’s page for Cambria here.

Here’s the information that Choice has up:

Enjoy upgraded rewards without the wait. When you stay a Cambria hotel, you’ll be awarded Elite status benefits that start you when you check in—and rewards that continue even after you’ve completed your stay.  These exclusive perks include:

  • $10 Cambria Credit – Redeemable at our restaurant and bar, which features local craft beers on tap, or at the marketplace.
  • Double Your Extras – Earn double Your Extras on weekday (Sunday – Thursday) stays and enjoy your choice of a $10 coffee gift card, $5 Uber credit, $5 Amazon gift card or 800 bonus points.
  • Status Match Plus – Have Elite Status at another brand? If so, you’ll be eligible for our top tier, Choice Privileges Diamond Elite Status.
  • And More – You’ll also get other Elite benefits like early check-in, late check-out and preferred parking (where available).

It is unclear, however, how one can utilize this “Status Match Plus” program when staying at Cambria brand and when this offer expires?

Here’s the Choice Privileges elite benefits matrix:

UPDATE: Here’s how to apply for the Diamond match:

Cambria Match

To receive the status jump, guests will simply need to email Status_Match@choicehotels.com (for US and Canadian members) or Status_Match_EU@choicehotels.com (for European members) and provide the following information, along with a copy of their Cambria folio. There is currently expiration for this program

  • Full name

  • Choice Privileges member number

  • Proof of Elite Status in another hotel program – this can be a copy of the other program’s loyalty card or a screenshot/copy of the program’s statement or account page.

Here is the existing Choice Privileges status match program:

This is a good way to get Choice Privileges Diamond for those that stay at Cambria (at least once) and have a status with a competing chain. It is unclear (still) when this offer expires. Based on an email that we received from a Choice spokesperson, it is not an open ended one.
