Hilton Honors has on-going Gold fast track that only requires two stays or four nights to complete that requires Visa card for members in Asia-Pacific, Middle East or Africa.
This offer has been around for a while but appears still to be valid. A reader just dropped me an email yesterday about it.
The main benefit of Gold status is complimentary breakfast and/or club lounge access (if upgraded to executive floor).
Hilton Honors is really hard trying to make every members at minimum Gold. It is difficult NOT to have any status with Honors considering all the offers and number of hotels out there (and meaningful benefits obviously).
If you live in Asia-Pacific, Middle East or Africa, have eligible Visa card but don’t have yet status with Hilton Honors, I would sign up for the offer and have the two stays or four nights. The status from this offer would then be valid trough March 2020.
