Have a travel question we haven't covered yet? Want to share your secrets for traveling well for less?

Hilton Honors is offering instant Gold Status for Visa Signature Credit Card Members. (Signed up for the British Airways Visa for its 100K miles? You've got a Signature Visa card.)

Register your Visa Signature card and you'll instantly receive Hilton HHonors Gold status through August 31, 2011. And if you can manage 3 stays at a Hilton property by August 31, 2011 then Hilton will extend your Gold status through March 2013.

As Ben noted in his post "How to Compare Hotel Programs' Mid-Tier Elite Benefits" Hilton HHonors Gold Status is arguably the best mid-tier status to have apart from Marriott, which has a much higher threshold to attain mid-tier status.

Here's what you get with Hilton HHonors Gold Status when staying at a Hilton hotel:

  • Upgrade to a club room with access to the club lounge on a space available basis
  • If no club room is available, you receive complimentary breakfast in the hotel restaurant
  • Complimentary Internet access
  • 25% point bonus for all stays

Note that if you're staying at another Hilton brand (Embassy Suites, Hampton Inn, etc.) the on-property benefit is typically just a point bonus or snacks, since there aren't club rooms/lounges.
