THANKS OP!

Nice find!

One thing gold gets you: Free upgrades when you check it. You just might get a suite so be sure to ask.

worked. Thnks OP

I just got my reg size McDonald's fries upgraded to large. This thing is great.

Bring the video cam, I hear she is easy.

good find ... just signed up.

Nice. I'm guessing my old account disappeared due to inactivity, so I made a new one. 5 minutes later I was Gold. Not dead.

For some reason I got an error. Then I logged in the normal way and redid the form and it worked.

Thanks OP!

Go to the regular Hilton Honors website and try to log in. You can request your pin number be email to you from there.




I did ... twice! HHonors will not send my PIN to my email of record. I wonder how this is going to end up for those who took "advantage" of it?

I just tested this and they sent me my password instantly when I requested it. Have you checked your spam folder? And, are you sure that you are using the correct email address?

There is just no reason to think that the problems you're experiencing getting your password have anything at all to do with this promotion...

Probably will work out great for Hilton since more people will be giving them money to stay at their hotels.

Got the gold status but no points....

XDSMX said:   Got the gold status but no points....
No kidding.

if you read the terms, it's only points if you use the Infinite card for 3 or 4 stays before May 30th. I upgraded to Gold and I honestly don't feel bad for using this deal because I honored the terms of the last deal they had for 3 stays before August 30th on my Signature Visa, and they didn't keep my Gold because they said that I didn't use the Signature Visa card. I looked back at the terms and conditions and it never said anything about using the Signature Visa card to keep the Gold status, but they insisted when I spoke with them on the phone that I had to use it. I stayed at their hotel 2 extra times that month and one of the stays was actually inconvenient for me because the event was at a hotel across the street, but I stayed in a Hilton to earn the Gold Status which they took away on vaguely worded terms.

So to each their own on whether you think this is fair for people to take advantage of, because Hilton has taken advantage of their customers in the past, it works both ways.

More than likely it's because your account has been deactivated due to inactivity. That's happened to me in the past. I had to create a new account (or have their CS do it for me, since I called to find out what was up).
Thanks to OP. I don't stay Hilton as much as I used to, but I did stay at a Conrad when I was in Istanbul in November. Can't say that my Gold status did jack for me there, though. In their defense, however, they were clearly at about max capacity. Nice enough hotel. It's just that staying at these business class properties was too much like going to work. Same conference types that I see all the time. I felt like I should be drawing a paycheck.

got gold right away but an hour has passed and no free points yet

Either retarded or a joke..haha

I don't think we get the 40,000 points. It says 40,000 HHonors Points for 4 completed stays that you pay for with your Visa Infinite card. Since we will not be paying with that card, I do not expect we will be getting the 40K points. But getting instant Gold status is sweet, thanks.

is it dead? i got an error message.

edit: tried again and this time the codes worked. However, when i signed back in again the status did not change (still showing silver status).

edit again: Finally got the Gold status, only after 30 minutes or so! Thanks OP.

Thank you! Someone who actually read the OP and the first few posts.

Thanks OP. Got my gold status. The one Hilton that I stayed at from time to time is losing their Hilton franchise as of 1/1/12, so I don't know if I'll get to use it or not.

i applied for a member card, will it be gold or blue?

In for Gold too. May end up staying at Hilton more often now too.

spextr said:   i applied for a member card, will it be gold or blue?Are you talking about the Visa Infinite Card or the HHonors Membership card from Hilton? The Visa Infinite Card will make you a gold member instantly after you enter your first 6 digits of the card in the site provided in the original post. The HHonors membership is free to join and you will be a Blue card member when you start off. I think it's 10 nights to become silver and 36 to become gold.

I was going to jump on this but after seeing that it "should be" for those that actually have the Visa Infinite Card, I don't want to risk having my account or points terminated because of this.

do you have to make a booking before you see gold status?

edit:nm, see gold status.

Refuses to accept my existing HHonors membership number, says it is invalid, even though I can go directly to the HHonors site and login. Any ideas?

hilton hhonors membership card.

lol guess we'll see in 2-3 weeks but i think it should be blue as well

This worked for me, I was able to get my account established. Thanks OP!
