A small dribble of points every day will add up fast. That is why we use this trick to earn 50 to 100 Hilton points a day, every day. After a few moments, you could be up and running with earning 50 Hilton points per day.
The approach involves linking a top guest account with foursquare, then checking in at Hilton DoubleTree hotels to earn 50 Hilton points per day. This method can also be used to earn 50 Priority Club points, 50 Virgin America Elevate points, 50 Viola Hotel points, 500 M life tier credits, and a personal award from Club hotel. We prefer the Hilton option and will walk through the setup process in this post.
Caution: This approach is known by a lot of frequent flyers, some who abuse it and others who play by the rules. Some of the abuse occurs with auto-check ins and checking in when you are not at or near the property. There are reports that those who abuse this approach will be locked out of Topguest program, so proceed in the spirit of the program to earn 50 points a day, everyday.
Signup for Top Guest
The first step in the setup process is to (1) signup for a Topguest account.
Next, you’ll want to add your loyalty program numbers to the programs that you would like to participate with in the Topguest program. Just select the “add member ID” button and add your loyalty program member ID.
Link Your Account With Foursquare
Next, you’ll want to (2) signup for a foursquare account and link your Topguest account. You can do this easily by logging in with Facebook. Foursquare is an application that you can use on your smart phone to “check in” at your location. This shares your location with foursquare and your Topguest linked program will award you points. For Hilton, you much check in at a DoubleTree hotel in order to earn the 50 points.
Visit And Check In At Double Tree Hotel Locations
The next step is to (3) use foursquare to check in at a DoubleTree location. Simply open up the app, search for the DoubleTree location you are visiting, and “check in” to earn your points.
Watch The Points Roll In
You’ll earn 50 Hilton points for every check in. An automated email will be sent to your email address on file with Topguest. The points post very quickly to Hilton. You can see from the picture below that the Hilton points add up fast.
Using Topguest and foursquare to check in at your favorite locations can provide you with 50 points a day, everyday. But be careful to make sure you are using Topguest in the spirit of the program to avoid getting locked out.
It would be great to hear from those of you who use Topguest with any other program than Hilton. Which program do you think is the most valuable to check in using Topguest?
