I have a trip to London coming up and hotel rates are outrageous! I looked through all my preferred brands and even with AAA and a corporate rate, I couldn’t find anything reasonable. So I had to look at a Hilton hotel, but the problem was, I have no status with Hilton. After some searching, I found a link on Points, Miles & Martinis with info about a fast track to gold status. What a great find!
All I had to do was sign up using this link (if you have signed up for fast track before, it seems that it will not allow you to sign up again) choose the date for my 90-day fast track period and then within about 10 minutes my account showed gold status and I booked a hotel in London! To maintain the gold status, you need to complete 4 qualifying stays or 9 nights within 90 days from your start date.
This is a great way to get gold status if you have upcoming travel with Hilton and haven’t used a fast track before.
