For those who have the Visa infinite card and do not have Hilton HHonors account can sign-up for the program as well.
TD Canada Trust offers FREE Visa Infinite Card with Select Service Account (min balance of $5000). Obviously only to those who qualify
My Visa Infinite card did not work online so I called 1-800-hhonors can they signed me up in a minute. Try it out!
Update: 5 pm: Looks like as other members said, it is only promotion for Asia Pacific, Central Europe, Middle East and Africa. See post #14 for details. On their website the Terms and Conditions are mentioned as follows so I don't know if it works for everyone. I tried and it worked for me, no questions asked. The lady did asked me about the code and I said it is not listed on the website. she came back in 2 minutes with the news that she has applied the promo to my account and my status is now GOLD. So YMMV, worth giving a try at least.
