Hilton are playing hardball even though I have the email saying I should be Diamond until March 2021 and said I haven't stayed enough. I've just sent them a snip from the email I have - thank goodness I'm an email hoarder. SIGGHH
Aren’t they extending elite status for another 6 months because of Covid-19?

Not to me they aren't but I should have Diamond until March 31st 2021 and that's what I want.
Likewise so will be interested to see what happen shortly with the yearly status update. Hopefully the Macquarie based status will carry over per the original confirmation from hilton last year.

Well it will certainly carry-over until (at least) 31st March 2021, unless further extended. However, if there are any glitches showing after about mid April 2020, I would be following it up.

Same here. I think what they are trying to tell me though, is call them again once I drop down - hard to tell because the email is in Engrish and the words are all muddled up.

so I sent them a copy of the email and said please escalate and this is the response which as you said is Engrish - then I got a survey about 10 minutes later. Waiting until after I've had my work meeting tonight and have a gin and tonic - then I'll respond. ;)

Thank you for your response. We appreciate your loyalty towards Hilton.

We want to extend our sincerest apologies concerning all the issues that you have faced. We pride ourselves in providing great customer service and we'd like to do the same for you. We may not be able to change the past but if you give us a chance, we will completely make it up to you. Please be rest assured, we will do everything it takes to make us deserving of your loyalty.

Please be informed that currently we are updating the profile information in our systems and databases. The information of stays and nights are being calculated and are in progress to be updated in the guest's accounts. A group of our dedicated team are working on resolution of the concern and the account updates will get completed almost by the end of this month ( March ). Hence, I request you to get in touch with us regarding the tier extension or any other query related with the stays and nights count by 1 April, 2020 so that we can assist you with the best possible resolution.

Your patience and understanding will be highly appreciated regarding this matter.

My reply was

"Please be informed I would request you to please revert us back after 31 March 2020 and we will upgrade your tier status. "

Do you think our status (Diamond for me) will be now extended to 31 Mar 2022 based on the email I received below? (Given our status was already extended by Hilton / Macquarie til 31 Mar 21)

I would say yes, according to the email which has been sent.

Yep - we have 2020 status, even if as a courtesy of the MGL card, so I fully anticipate this 2020 status to be extended to March 2022. It’s very good news!

Cheers,
Matt.
