A few years ago Hilton, unknowingly, made it very easy for anyone to gain Silver and Gold Honors status. It appeared that the links they had sent out to specific companies to try and entice their employees to stay at Hilton properties had appeared within many search engines. After the rebranding of the Hilton Honors scheme a little while ago (from Hilton HHonors to Hilton Honors) these links suddenly disappeared. Now it appears that through a series of links they are offering instant Hilton Silver status in their Hilton Honors scheme with no stay requirement.
Fast tracking your Hilton status is a great way of getting free room upgrades if you are staying at a Hilton property (loyal members are preferred over non-members in the hotel’s eyes) and Hilton Silver status set you on the way to Hilton Gold which get you free breakfasts when staying.
The instant Hilton HHonors Silver status, with fast track to Gold, works in the same way as the previous loophole. You now have the chance to upgrade to instant Hilton Silver status with just a few clicks – no hotel stay required. These offers are meant to be open to only cardholders of specific American Express cards, mainly in Singapore and Hong Kong, but the links are available publicly so anyone can register. Hilton also do not check (or are unable to check) if you actually hope that specific American Express card. There is no email verification and no address checks. This status loophole is again likely quick to be closed down so I would recommend signing up as soon as possible.
