Pardon my ignorance, but what is this Visa Infinite card?

Looks very similar to a Visa Signature, but is not available in America?

Interesting that it's the first six numbers and not the last six numbers. Since the first few numbers of the card are typically similar or the same for a particular issuer, a quick Google image search got me 6 numbers that work just fine. From the Visa Signature promo (and these T&C's), I know you won't get the bonus points without actually using a Visa Infinite card, but if you need gold for next year, this might be a good way to get it.

This may not a typo. Per the T&C's, if you sign up for the promotion, you get gold status through May 2013 (whether or not you get the bonus points). Then again, you need to sign up by May 2012, so I guess it all depends on the interpretation.

Moral of the story: if you're gonna get in on this, get in early.

Instant gold and 40k points/ 4 stays by 5/31/12 with Visa Infinite

So instant Hhonors gold and 40,000 points after 4 stays if you have a visa infinite card.
Just need to verify the first 6 numbers of your card (they all start with 411945), and have a hhonors account.

link here https://www.hiltonhhonors.com/landin...initeGold.aspx

hat tip to lucky coins.

I second the idea to get in early on this one.
Already on the front page of Slickdeals.

Here's what some idiot at Slickdeals wrote:

"I couldn't get it to work, so I contacted Hilton for help. The rep. said she didn't think this was a legitimate deal. So I asked for escalation & am on hold now, waiting for a supervisor."
