In terms of the major hotel brands – the Hilton Gold Status is probably the best mid-tier status and the easiest to obtain.

I have explained in my previous post the benefits of having this gold status.

For most people – they will never stay 40 nights or spend $7,500 in a Hilton hotel per year.

Therefore I am going to reveal how you can get the Hilton Gold status much more quickly:

1. Hilton Macquarie Credit Card – By obtaining this credit card – you automatically become a Hilton Gold member. The annual fee is $295. But is worth it if you do travel a lot and want to get the perks quickly.

2. From time to time - there maybe a promotional code where all you have to do is enter a code in a Hilton website - and you instantly become a Gold member! This happened to me about 5 years ago - and have been able to maintain the gold status from different methods. There is no current promotion for this – but stay tuned to my blog or sign up to my newsletter. I will be sure to inform you if there is such a lucrative promotion.

3. Joining Frequent Flyer forums (e.g. www.Milepoint.com) - from year to year - they offer Hilton Gold status for $49 for a bit more than a year. So definitely worth it.

4. Status match - if you are a gold equivalent member from another Hotel Loyalty programme (e.g. Hyatt Diamond, IHG Ambassador, SPG Gold) - Hilton offers a challenge where for example if you stay 4 times at a Hilton hotel during 90 days - then you will receive Hilton Gold for the coming year.

5. Purchasing Hilton Gold status through ebay. This is probably the most risky way to attain Gold - but is worth it as on Ebay you can purchase Hilton Gold card for I think $90 and is valid to 2020! The issue here is that Hilton can potentially audit your account because of fraudulent activities. My friend has done this a couple of months ago and so far - so good - he is still a Hilton Gold. 

Personally – because of my frequent travel this year – I’ve been able to already earn the required number of Hilton points to retain Gold Status till March 2016.

Stay tuned for my newsletters and blog posts as you never know – there maybe a special on the Hilton Gold membership either for free or for cheap – and surely you will be the first one notified!
