When I wrote about Hilton HHonors Gold fast track offer three days ago (access here), I had no idea how widely available it is.
I reported first that it came for Ethiopian ShebaMiles members (I have never credited anything there). Readers commented that they had received it from Air France-KLM Flying Blue and Saudia. Today, blast was sent to Alitalia’s MilleMiglia members (I received one due to opening an account for status match purposes).
Note that I cannot link to these offers as they all come with onetime use code. Once someone has registered using it, the page will come up “this offer not available for you”.
All the offers also come with double miles offer for second stay, triple miles for third stay and quadruple miles for fourth stay offers. This requires you to choose Points + Miles Double Dip option chosen and have the airline as the preferred partner.
This is a very good offer for those that received it. You can get complimentary Gold status until the end of October 31, 2015, and bu staying just three times during the period (awards count too) keep it until the end of March 2017.
I am just surprised that these airline programs are sending these out to some that have never had any activity on their programs. Also, seems that they are not doing any cross reference with Hilton to cull those email addresses that are already associated with HHonors elite status.
