Hilton HHonors just emailed a very lucrative offer for Ethiopian Airlines ShebaMiles members.
You can get instant Hilton HHonors Gold status until October 31 and by having three stays by then extend it all the way until March 2017.
You can access and sign up for this offer here.
EDIT: Seems that Hilton & airline loyalty programs have sent similar offers for Air France-KLM Flying Blue and Saudia’s members in addition to the ShebaMiles one that I wrote about here. The link was working at the time I wrote this piece, but apparently it is a one-time use code.
EDIT: You can try copy pasting the following link to your browser and change the numbers/letters that I have in bold and red. This may get an offer that works for you.
Note that I am not sure if this offer is open for all that sign up or link their non-Gold account using the link above. There is no downside for trying, however.
Remember that paid, award and points + cash stays all count towards the Hilton fast track offers. You can read more about one fast track experience here that mixed various rate types including awards.
This offer also comes with double miles for second stay, triple miles for third stay and quadruple miles for third stay for those that sign up for this offer, choose Points + Miles earning option and have Ethiopian Airlines ShebaMiles as their preferred partner.
Here’s copy of the email:
You should try to sign up for this offer to see if it can be applied to your account. If you can get in, this is the shortest Fast Track offer for Hilton Gold status that I have seen.
Hilton HHonors Gold is the most worthwhile mid level hotel status out there that is often easy to get via these fast track offers.
You get guaranteed breakfast, room upgrades and Club lounge access when upgraded to executive/club floor, although many properties do provide this to Gold members by default (based on my Gold experience last year).
