Free Hilton Gold Status & 40,000 Bonus Points

This promotion has been around for a little bit now. Hilton is offering free Gold status (instant) & 40,000 bonus points after 4 stays.


Hilton Gold status is good through May 31, 2013.
The 4 stays for the bonus points need to be completed by May 31, 2012. If you don’t planning getting the bonus points, this promotion is still great to sign up for the Gold status alone.

Hilton Gold:
25% Point Bonus
Free Internet
Room Upgrade AND Breakfast or 1,000 Points at Conrad, Hilton, or Doubletree
Welcome snack or drink at the non-full service brands


Originally the promotion required only the first 6 digits of the Visa Infinite credit card, however the web site now asks for the full 16 digits to check if you are a card holder, so it’s a bit tougher to get.


Don’t be discouraged though, you could use a credit card number checking tool available online to confirm if your Infinite CC number happens to be valid,
the digits need to sum to ten (end in zero) based on the algorithm.


One of the 6 digit CC headers for the Visa Infinite # include 442394, then you can use the algorithm checker to make sure the remaining 10 digits are valid. Enjoy your Hilton Gold status!

    Thanks buddy,
    I’ve just upgraded to HHonors Gold 😉
    What have you been saying about matching your HHonors Gold status?
    How do you get Platinum Elite?

      Leo, congrats on the upgrade! I was merely saying that Best Western has a free status matching program. So they will match you to BW Platinum Elite status, same as Hilton Gold. Check out the link below, with benefits.

        Thanks mate,

        I was wondering… can probably give me some advise.
        I’m landing in HK on Dec. 21st arounf 21:00 and going to stay there for 2 nights.

        Last time I did it I’ve stayed in the “Novotel Citygate” and it was 3 years ago in September and I liked it.
        I can see that the prices are doubled and tripled for stay in December and I’ve missed the 50% Accor promotion.

        Do you have any suggestions for me to try (2 adults and 2 little kids)?
