Note that all the other offers are for FOUR STAYS during the promotional period but the United’s offer is for FIVE NIGHTS. There are various ending dates until which you have time to do the stays. Read the airline specific terms and conditions.

Friend of mine alerted me about this offer that was first posted on FlyerTalk.

Other Fast Track Offers for Hilton HHonors Gold Status

Hilton has an offer in the Asia Pacific region for instant Gold status for Visa Infinite card holders. There is a way around to get this offer even if you don’t have a Visa Infinite card. Hilton also offers fast track to Gold status only after four stays or nine nights over 90 day period via their MVP program.

Remember that you can double dip with Virgin Atlantic and transfer the miles back to Hilton HHonors. I wrote about this strategy recently.

Still the same offer. 50K Hilton HHonors bonus points is a nice amount.

United Airlines Mileage Plus

The bonus point offer is only 25K Hilton HHonors points compared to 50K on American, Delta and JetBlue offers.

Virgin America Elevate

– 1,600 Elevate points after your fourth stay by December 12, 2012¹

Conclusion

If you received the offer email for complimentary Hilton HHonors Gold status basically just for singing up, it makes perfect sense to take advantage of this it even if you don’t have any planned Hilton stays. The status will be valid until March, 2014.

Hilton HHonors Gold status is good for a complimentary breakfast and/or lounge access, some extra points, complimentary internet access, room upgrades, and you will be eligible for VIP only awards.

Hilton HHonors Gold is probably the best mid-tier hotel chain status.

You can combine this offer with other current Hilton promotions.
