Currently, you have the chance to get your Hilton Honors status upgraded to Silver tier. Strictly speaking, this promotion is only intended for holders of an American Express Platinum in Hong Kong. But apparently, nobody will check this requirement.
All you have to do is simply login to this landing page with your Hilton Honors credentials, and you will be upgraded to Silver:
It really is that easy! However, we would like to point out once again that the promotion is most likely not meant for you, and therefore, the status could be revoked at any time or – worst case scenario – your Hilton Honors account could be closed. On the other hand, there have been several similar promotions in the past. And we haven’t heard of anything bad ever happening.
Your new Silver status should stay valid for one year after the registration.
Unfortunately, the benefits that a Hilton Honors Silver tier gets you are limited:
- 15% more bonus points (12 instead of 10 points per USD spent)
- 5 award nights for the price of 4
- Two complimentary bottles of water per stay
Of course, it can still happen that you get an upgrade or free breakfast at the hotel. So it’s definitely worth getting the free Silver status!
