Well, I have said before that this business is all about getting things for free and here is another example. Hilton and Visa are giving away 1,000 points if you sign up with an eligible visa and let them send you SMS messages to your cell. I hate SMS spam so am planning on removing myself once the points post. But for 1,000 free Hilton points, I will take the 6-8 messages it will take before they post.
If you have Hilton travel planned, it gets even sweeter if you put $100 or more at Hilton on the Visa you register with a 4,000 point reward. Hilton has quite a few stackable promotions right now such as these that you can combine with this promo which would give you up to 9,000 bonus points for a weekend booking on top of what you would normally get. Not bad!
I used my Chase Sapphire Preferred card to verify eligibility with no problems. You do have to give your credit card number and HHonors number but since it is at Visa.com it is probably pretty safe and secure.
