Hilton Honors has updated its Points Expiry and is contemplating the Elite Status extension/qualification requirements for2020 due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
Points expiry is put on hold through May 31, 2020, and Honors promises, in due course, update us about the status requirements for 2020.
You can access Hilton’s page for the announcement here.
Here’s the update from Hilton Honors:
Your Points and Status
We know that earning Hilton Honors Points and Status is an important way we show appreciation. We also know the current travel environment may limit your ability to stay with us.
We will pause the expiration of all points scheduled to expire between now and May 31, 2020.
We will make updates to the requirements for earning tier status for 2021. Since the situation is still evolving, it is too early to make and announce specific changes. We are committed to sharing details as soon as possible.
The points expiry should have been pushed back to 2021 and not to just until the end of May. I would expect that the 2020 status will be eventually extended by a year through 2022.
