Hilton is currently offering 500 Hilton HHonors points if you log in for the first time.
That is it. You don’t need to buy anything – simply log in.
The only reason I added ‘potentially’ to the headline is that there is a chance that this offer is restricted to US residents. There is no evidence of this but, as I cannot find the terms and conditions, we can’t be sure.
The offer is also restricted to the first 10,000 applicants and there is no guarantee that Hilton will remove the ad for this offer quickly if the target has been reached.
Given how quickly you can register, however, it is still worth doing regardless. If they don’t post then you haven’t lost anything.
