Hilton Honors is currently running a promotion in conjunction with Visa, for Visa Infinite and Visa Signature credit card holders living in the Asia-Pacific region (including Australia and New Zealand). By registering on the Visa website you can get instant Hilton Honors Gold status after 2 stays or 4 nights at Hilton hotels. The promo ends on 31 July.

Visa Signature cards in Australia include St George Amplify Signature, Citi Signature and NAB Rewards Signature.

is there any benefit from registering prior to completing the 2 stays or 4 nights?
I cant figure that out because I am already Gold, but wondering if the missus can get the deal on her card.

Anyone have any idea on the length of time it takes to achieve the status upgrade once the requirements are met.

I filled the form, and made my two stays, and never received a confirmation email or any other notification of activation, etc.

I guess that you have already checked your current status on the HHonors website: Account>Hilton Honors Card

Yep, shows my two stays there aswell, might give it another week.
Curious to know how you went? Status been updated?

I registered right towards the cutoff and hope knock over two stays within the 90 day window.

Just completed my two stays. Status was updated immediately the second stay posted.

Does this a kind of a "trial gold" benefit until you make the 4 nights or 2 stays, or only after you have done them ? I.e. first 2 stays are no-status, so expect no recognition ?

No trial status. You need the stays / nights before upgrade.

Do you have to pay with the card you registered....?
I did but check the Ts&Cs. I think it says pay with your Visa but the system may not be that smart. Having said, there is/was a parallel promo for bonus points if you pay with Visa. I got the bonus from one but not the other. I had prepaid with Visa for both but settled some incidentals on AMEX at one. I suspect that may have overwritten the card type used? Either way, the two stays triggered an upgrade from Silver to Gold.

Thanks for the heads up. Will find out in a couple of weeks :)

Does anybody know if two rooms in the same dates count as two stays, since they give different email confirmations?

No, you can only get a single stay/night credit even if more than one room is booked.
