Hilton HHonors launched last month instant Gold status and separate fast track offer to keep it through March 2018 (for employees of a number of companies).
The instant Gold status is valid until August 31, 2016, and you need to complete four stays by the same date to keep it through March 2018.
Note that the four stays can be awards, points & cash or paid nights (not required to book a corporate rate). This offer is targeted to various companies but the registration is open for all (as has always been the case with these promotions).
The registration for a new account was successful and the Gold status was reflected instantaneously.
You can read more about Hilton HHonors status levels here.
The Gold status comes with room upgrades, executive lounge access or breakfast, and bonus points.
Hilton HHonors certainly is giving out status easily these days. They still have the Diamond match going on (read more here) and now you can keep Gold status through March 2018 by simply having four stays by the end on August (three months left).
Hilton HHonors Gold status is a worthwhile one as it comes with lounge access and/or breakfast in addition to room upgrades and bonus points.
