According to Jason of MilesQuest, the virtual move to Australia to get free Hilton Gold Status is STILL working even after all these months!
If you haven’t signed up for it yet, MilesQuest lays out how exactly to do it here.
I thought I had Hilton Gold Status from last year, but it looks like mine expired so I just followed MilesQuest’s directions and the new Gold Status posted instantly!
I had issues with Firefox, so I opened up Chrome and it worked without problem.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting this free Hilton Gold Status, because as I have talked about many times, you can use this free Gold Status to parlay it into Elite Status at a Hotel that you actually stay at.
In the past, I have used these type of free Elite Status promotions to status match to SPG, Club Carlson, Marriott, United, etc all for free.
A full list of what benefits Hilton Gold gets you can be found here.
Outside of my new Hilton Gold Status, from Credit Cards and Status Matching I currently have the following Hotel Elite Statuses:
- Club Carlson Gold – Status Match
- SPG Gold – Free AMEX Platinum Card Perk
- Hyatt Platinum – Free Hyatt Credit Card Perk
Although most of the Elite Statuses above are fairly low, it is crazy to think that I now have 4 Hotel Elite Statuses all without ever actually completing the Stay Requirements that are normally needed!
Don’t ever miss another FFU Update or Travel Deal!
