Hilton is offering those with a Visa Infinite card (a Visa card starting with 411945) instant HHonors Gold status valid for one year. You just need to enter the first six digits of the card along with your Hilton account information here.
The Gold status posts instantly, which is the best offer for Gold I’ve seen in a very long time. Hilton HHonors Gold is by far the best mid-tier hotel elite status level, given that it comes with both free breakfast/club lounge access and internet.
I’d get in on this ASAP before they pull the offer.
