A couple of months ago I posted how to gain Hilton Gold status by signing up though a special link (original article: Instant Hilton Gold Status – No Stays Required). That loophole was quickly closed down by Hilton HHonors team. However it now seems that there are new loopholes in place to gain the same Hilton Gold status in their loyalty scheme, HHonors.
Again Hilton are now offering you the chance to upgrade to instant Hilton Gold status with just a few clicks – no hotel stay required. The offer is meant to be open to only employees of specific companies but the links are available publicly so anyone can register. Hilton also do not check (or are unable to check) if you are actually an employee of that specific company. There is no email verification (you could be an employee of the company but sign up to Hilton HHonors using your personal email address). This status loophole is again likely quick to be closed down so I would recommend signing up as soon as possible.
