1,000 free Hilton Honors points (offer expires March 25)

Head over to the Hilton HHonors forum for details:

http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/hilto...in-update.html

As posted by our vetted Hilton HHonors representative:

UPDATE AS OF 3/12:

Okay FlyerTalkers, it’s time to update your passwords and, as promised, you’ll get 1,000 Bonus Points for doing it by March 25!

Since we always want to make sure you have a safe and secure experience, we’re asking you to change your password as part of a new way to login to your account.

Your password must be updated by April 1, but the sooner the better – so we’re offering 1,000 Bonus Points if you change your password now! If you change your password starting today or by March 25 you will receive 1,000 Bonus Points.

As part of this update, we created new guidelines to make sure your password is a bit stronger.

Here’s what you need to know to get started…
Visit the Personal Information section in your account profile by logging in with your current credentials, and then select “Change Password.”
Your new password must be at least 8 characters, contain at least 1 upper case letter, and contain at least 1 number or 1 special character.
Remember to choose a unique password and update it at least every three to six months to ensure maximum security.

Thank you. I really appreciate the way that you ferret out buzzworthy opportunities for programs that I use, but don't follow closely.

I "changed" my password from the password I changed it to the first time and it accepted it. Perhaps we'll get lucky.

Don't have any hilton stays in the near future, so this was a great heads up I otherwise wouldn't have seen! Thanks!

Has the 1000 points posted for anyone yet? I made the change yesterday evening but haven't gotten them.

This promo comes in handy as I was about 1200 points short on an award booking I need to make so the sooner it posts the better
