One side note, Firefox didn't work for me, I kept getting errors. Worked when I switched to IE.
I had no problems using Firefox.

I tried with the Hyatt card... no dice. Marriott VS worked just fine. 5K ez points.

Thanks, OP!

Also gave me 5,000 bonus points as a diamond. This promo really says something about how much HH Gold is worth though if you all you have to do is have a visa signature card and stay three times during the peak travel season

I just tried with the Hyatt visa and it worked. I am already a Hilton Diamond and it said I would get the 5000 pts. Thanks OP

Out of curiosity - i entered a non-US visa signature card and it bit (got instant gold). Not sure if the 3 stay challenge will work or not, but I have to make a few stays anyway, so I'll book hilton. If it takes, it takes, if it doesn't - too bad

I prefer 5K points over a 3-month gold...
but I don't have a say on this
It's free anyway. Thank OP
