Hilton 7,500 Bonus Points ad:
Hilton Honors had the above ad on Facebook. There is no note that it would only be available for new accounts.
Hilton Honors had similar promo issue back in May:
This offer is neither targeted nor exclusive, as it just appeared on my Facebook feed and not via an email that the original T&Cs required.
Hilton Honors has now amended the T&Cs and made it available only for new members. I would assume that all the existing members that were eligible to register will get their points based on the similar earlier offer.
It seems that this offer spread like wildfire to -a number of websites after we originally reported it (based on a Google search).
