If you hold Elite status with a hotel program other than Hilton HHonors you can get that status matched by Hilton. (Source FlyerTalk)
"We've been receiving a number of requests and yes, we do match status from other programs and we'd love to be your travel home.

  1. We are matching status for 2016. To make sure you're all set for the year, please submit your request by January 11, 2016. You'll enjoy that status through March 2017.
  2. All you need is something that shows your elite tier in another program and an HHonors number.
  3. Email us at and we'll help get you started."
Check your email for a great offer from American Express. They'll give you a $10 statement credit if you spend $10 or more at This means you could potentially get something small completely free!

Air Canada
is offering a 10% off flights code if you buy $500 or more of Air Canada Gift Cards by Dec 1. Find out more here.

Although WestJet is flying their newly received Boeing 767 between select cities in Canada it appears they still haven't received their ETOPS rating for the plane as they are leasing an OMNI Air 767 to serve the Alberta-Hawaii market between Dec 11 and Jan 9. Note that if you have 'Plus' seats booked for flights during this time OMNI Air does not have Plus seats, they are 100% economy seats so you may want to go back to WestJet to see if they'll refund you some money!!

American AAdvantage
is giving current AAdvantage Elite members the chance to buy up their elite status for 2016. Find out more here.
