500 free Hilton points on Facebook [two offers?]

http://www.facebook.com/Hampton

Click on the 'Watch, Share, and Earn' graphic.

Usual facebook spammy stuff to grab it, but I managed to keep it from appearing on my public/friends wall by using the 'only me' options.

I have had no luck with getting Hilton points from these promos. Not worth the time IMHO as they have yet to post to my account.

500 Easy Hilton Points For Linking To Facebook

I searched to be sure I'm not posting something already known, but it appears this is different from other social networking offers related to Hilton posted recently. I received an emailed offer this morning to link my Facebook and Hilton accounts today to earn an easy 500 Hilton HHonors Points. Though I'm a TopGuest member and it is hosted on TopGuest's site, the terms don't seem to state that being a member of TopGuest is required:

http://doubletree.topguest.com/

Just enter your account, submit, and when it asks for permission regarding who can see the posts, select "Only Me" so no one is bothered. Once the points post, if you're really concerned, you could disable to app completely with no consequence. Enjoy!

Just tried it and for some reason, it's giving me this error message:

Are either of you a TopGuest member? I didn't see anything requiring you to be, but if AAL i and HmmDonuts is not, perhaps it cross-checks.

This worked for me as well, thanks. I also have a TopGuest account.
The points seemed to post instantly in my HHonors account, but nothing new showed up under the "recent activity" section.

Re-opening thread because it appears that the offer posted by beachmouse (post #1) is distinct from the offer posted by mooper (post #4).

I am a TopGuest member.

Like another poster mentioned, the points posted to my HHonors account instantly, because my total points increased by 500, but the transaction is not listed under "all points activity" on my account.

I don't believe that the points from the Hampton "watch, share and earn" promo have posted to my account although I watched the video several days ago. On the other hand, perhaps I just did not notice that my account balance increased.
