Thread Details

I was able to get instant Gold status on my HHonors account following these instructions I found on the web. Took all but 5 minutes.



1.Log in to your account (or create one if you don’t have one)

2. Go to this address [fakenamegenerator.com] generator to create a valid Australian address.

3. Change your profile to the Australian address.

4. Go to this website [elfqrin.com] and create a credit card number. Click “Generate a Credit Number” and choose “Visa – Chase Manhattan Bank“. Don’t worry, you’re not generating an actual credit number someone owns. Replace the output with “4119 45xx xxxx xxxx” and hit generate.

5. Now go to the Visa Infinte landing page and enter the credit number from step 4.

6. Log out and log back in, you will have Gold status now. The benefits are here. You can now change your address back.



Worked flawlessly for me. Offer expires May 31st 2013.

This seems like straight up fraud. Id recommend against doing this if you have any sizeable amount of pts in your HH account.

I was gold for a year under that Russian billionaire deal.
Never stayed there once.
I got notified I'm back to Blue level. Oh well.

Same here, I had Gold for a full year with this exploit. I think I'll try it again.

I did this last year, got Gold status, and this year, magically Hilton decided to extend my gold membership for another year!! EEK!ConfusedWho am I to complain?! laugh out loud


Caveat Emptor: I've heard from atleast 3 people who've had FIRST-HAND experience of Hilton taking their points away that were earned BECAUSE of the Gold Status. I.E, the bonus points accrued on top of the base points.
I have NOT heard of anyone having their CURRENT points taken away.

You know what's funny?
I was the one who created the work around, when the original method died. Here and on FD. Then not too long ago it got picked up once more by a few blogs, and from the blogs, it's now back on Slickdeals.
Life has come full circle. Big Grin

Same here. I used this to get instant Gold status last year and just checked my account and Im still Gold thru 2014. Hopefully I can use this again next year if its still available. FWIW I really do stay at Hilton's as much as possible, even during expensive business travel to large US cities. I spend about 25-30 nights in a hotel on a year basis and have a choice of choosing ANY hotel brand that honors the US Federal Government per diem rate and try my best to book Hilton whenever possible.

So buy using this 'fastrack' method to Gold.. I dont feel like I'm cheating Hilton out of anything. Because of the status I'm spending $1,000s of dollars with them.. that I would normally spend at a Marriott or Starwood hotel which is usually closer to jobsites.

What does Gold even get you anymore? I've been a solid Gold and sometimes Diamond HHonor member for over 20 years. That being said with the latest devaluation in their points, does this even matter anymore? I still have over a million points and I'm purposely not accumulating them anymore. Once they're gone, so am I. Hilton is putting the screws to their loyal customers. There a also a lot of easy fast track ways to get Gold. Maybe because of threads like this and the many other fast track ways is the reason Hilton has devalued their points so much.

Upgrades, like being on the executive floor with cocktails and dinner / hors d'oeuvre or Breakfast at the mainline Hilton Hotels, is probably the best perk. Even if being on that floor is not possible they will usually authorize your key and tell you where they are.
And free WIFI for Gold / Diamond, again at the mainline Hilton.
