    Worked with my BA card. Thanks! (Although, at the moment, I'm enjoying the perks of being Plat Elite with PC, so I don't think I'll be doing many Hilton stays... good to have anyway!)

    Worked with my Marriott Visa (the irony of it). Since I am already Diamond received the 5,000 points.

    Make sure to do it twice, if you don't have the status -- you wil get it first time. Then do it again a few minutes later and you will get a message "you already have status... we will give you 5,000 points within 1-2 weeks".

    Cheers,

    I got a rock. Seriously, registered Mrs. Andyandy, got the status. Tried again the next day with another Signature card and got a "you have already registered" message. Nice to have free status though.

    Would 3 consecutive nights count for earning gold in this promotion, or is it 3 separate stays?

    Usually "qualifying stay" is one reservation, no matter how many nights, however, the T&C's did not clearly define a "stay", so call & ask. https://www.hiltonhhonors.com/landingpages/VisaSignature_TC.aspx

    I got my 5K points today (or maybe yesterday). For reference, I was already Gold, and did not have any stays.

    No luck for me. I tried multiple times with two signature cards and got this message every time:
    Your session has timed out. Please refresh or close your browser and try again.

    Mine have not posted yet. I did the "double" - first for gold and then again for 5,000. I got the 5k confirmation screen, so we'll see if they hit.

    I also had problems. I tried using both Firefox and IE on both my desktop and my laptop and got various error messages every time (I tried many times).
    Then I downloaded Chrome and was successful the first time. :)
    Since I have a probable stay at a Hilton in late August, the timing is good for me.

    Yeah, this didn't work for me either. Got the "you're already registered" message. Boo.

    I haven't seen mine, although I won't be upset either way. I knew I was gaming that one a bit ;)
    I do like it when companies honor what's promised on their confirmation screens, so we'll see what they do...

    Mine haven't posted either, and I won't get upset when it turns out they are smart enough to catch the loophole. In my particular case I should have just held off on registering for this promo until my next Hilton stay in about two weeks, which would have given me Gold via the UA Elite promo.

    Toddreg - you are awesome! Thanks for posting! I was awarded instant Gold status and have 2 of my 3 required stays out of the way. Looks like Gold status through early 2013 for me and my 3 stays :D

    I did call and yes, you are right. If you have consecutive night stays, they must be at different hotels for the nights to count toward this promotion. Not sure if it will be worth it to me to do this or not. I have a trip to NYC planned for mid-July, so maybe.

    No 5,000 points here either. Any ideas?
