Check your inbox – Instant Hilton Gold for Alitalia (elite) members

By wonders of the status match published not too long ago, I got alerted to the free and instant Hilton Gold status that Alitalia is offering to its elite members.

As I have never been anything other than Freccia Alata Plus (top tier), I don't know whether this is being offered to lower tiers or not. So I will need your feedback on whether you got this offer too and were of a different MilleMiglia tier. There's certainly no harm in signing up for an account first and then adding it to your Awardwallet.

You will need to check your email to see if you received your personalised link, but the email reads something like this:

If you are not already a member of Hilton HHonors become one!

You will be able to enjoy numerous exclusive benefits, such as complimentary space-available room upgrades, free standard WiFi access when you book direct or 25% bonus on all HHonors Base Points you earn, to help you get to your first reward night faster.
Furthermore, if you book three stays by 31st October 2015 in any of over 4,200 hotels Hilton Portfolio Hotels and resorts worldwide, you will be entitled to extend your Gold status2 until 31st March 2017.
Additionally, by taking advantage of the promotion, you will earn up to four times the usual miles!

I used the link and was taken to the registration page. My details went through fine, as the confirmation screen below shows. I did try to use the same link again for someone else, but it had expired.
