Hilton is pretty liberal with Gold Status giving it away like candy. Friday I mentioned an offer for Harvard & Berkeley MBA graduates offering free gold status for as far out as 2020. Most of us do not fit those specific requirements but can still obtain gold with only 4 paid stays.
Hilton currently has an offer for customers of Carlson Wagonlit Travel offering a fast track to Gold status. Although the offer states for Carlson Wagonlit customer, anyone can sign up. Hilton HHonors Gold status normally requires either 20 stays in a calendar year, 40 nights in a calendar year, or earning 75,000 base points in a calendar year. However, it seems that at least once a year there is an offer for free Gold status, and not all require even setting foot into a Hilton.
What does HHonors Gold Status get me?
- 25% bonus on base points earned
- 5th night free on reward nights for Silver, Gold, & Diamond
- Space available upgrades
- Breakfast at many of the Hilton brands
- Free Wi-Fi
Gold status can be attained simply by having the Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve card or the Hilton HHonors Surpass from American Express. But if you don’t have or don’t want one of those cards you can sign up for this offer here. The offer requires you to complete 4 stays within 90 days of registering for the promotion.
