Free Hilton HHonors Silver Status (and Fast Track to Gold)

euflyer points out that the free Hilton HHonors silver offer I wrote about a little over a year ago is still available.

Better to walk into Hilton as a silver than as a base member. First, because of the bonus points and in some cases free bottled water. But second and more importantly is that it serves as a reason not to be given the worst room on property, the one above the HVAC system or overlooking construction. That’s not a guarantee, but it helps.

Four stays within 90 days upgrades your account to Gold status, which I consider to be the best HHonors status level (better than Diamond on an opportunity cost basis).

Of course the easiest way to get and keep Hilton Gold is the Hilton HHonors Reserve Card which gives it to you just for being a cardmember. So with that you get free breakfast, an upgrade, internet, and more bonus points.

  2. I already have Silver status from my Amex HHonors card. Will the fast track still work in my case? Also, I have a 3 week trip this summer so could easily knock out 4 stays at a Hilton hotel. Do award stays count for the 4 nights?
