Last week, I wrote about new Hilton Honors promotion offering instant Silver status for American Express Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Ascent credit card members. I can not confirm that this offer is indeed open for everyone (at least for new accounts).
Hilton Honors Silver status usually requires four stays or ten nights consumed within calendar year.
You can access this offer on Hilton’s website here.
Here are Hilton Honors Silver benefits:
- Space-available room upgrades to preferred rooms at select brands
- 15% Bonus on all Hilton Honors Base Points
- Complimentary Standard in-room and lobby Wi-Fi when you book direct at Hilton.com
- Receive every 5th night free on Standard Room Reward stays of 5 nights or more
- Check-in, choose your room and order ahead prior to your stay with the Hilton Honors App
- Late check-out, upon request and subject to availability

And here’s the outcome:
So, I made the test at the time of writing the piece and signed up for an account and Hilton Honors emailed earlier this week about the latest promotion. The account status was indeed SILVER.
As I thought to be the case when I wrote the original piece, there doesn’t seem to be any verification behind to ensure that only eligible credit card holders would successfully sign up for this offer.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
Offer is valid for eligible American Express® Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Ascend Credit Card Members (Primary/Principal Card Members only). To be eligible for a Hilton Honors Silver status upgrade, register at HiltonHonors.com/amexkrisflyersilver between 01 January 2018 and 31 December 2018 (“Promotion Period”). Offer is available only to American Express® Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Ascend Credit Card Members who enrol during the Promotion Period and is not transferable. Limit of one registration or enrolment per American Express Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Ascend Credit Card Member. Once a member reaches Hilton Honors Silver status, the member may keep such status only for the calendar year in which the Hilton Honors Silver Status was earned and the subsequent calendar year. To retain their status after this initial complimentary period, a member has to satisfy certain qualifications found and to be completed on HiltonHonors.com/Silver. Please allow four (4) to six (6) weeks following registration for your Hilton Honors status to be upgraded. Visit amex.co/ascendterms for more details.
