• We just rolled out a huge software update for the Forum to bring us into the 20th Century. There's still a couple of kinks that we are working out. Let us know if you encounter any problems and we will have them squared away quickly.

CC vs eligible stays

Do Credit Cards and eligible stays combine for Hilton in order to obtain status or is it always one or another? I travel a lot for work and decided i should get a CC for the places I stay at so I can max out points.

Any tips for a new member when I have to book through My companies portal instead of using my own cc?

I'm not 100% clear on your question. Although, I believe you're asking something akin to if I get gold status with Hilton (you have the Amex Surpass or Citi Reserver, for example) does that count at 20 stays/40 nights, so I only need 10 more stays/20 nights for Diamond (since Diamond is 30 stays/60 nights). The answer is No - they don't combined. The Credit Cards get you the status only, not the equivalent number of nights/stays.

With some other chains (e.g. SPG) you get some nights/stays qualifying toward status with the credit cards.
