In case you are one of the existing or new (through the SPG program) Marriott Platinums, you can register for free United MileagePlus Silver Status (valued at $970 by The Points Guy).
Even if you aren’t a Platinum member, you should link your accounts to take advantage of reciprocal program benefits.
Step 1. If you’re an SPG Platinum (or even if you aren’t!) link your account through this site for a status match at Marriott and Ritz-Carlton hotels.
Step 2. Once you’ve confirmed your Marriott status, register for your free United Silver status with this link.
Even if you are not an SPG or Marriott Platinum member, you still qualify for benefits such as:
- 20% discount when you convert your Marriott points to United miles
- 10% more miles when you redeem one of Marriott’s lucrative Hotel + Air packages
If you’re a Marriott Platinum and get United Silver status, you qualify for potential first-class upgrades, checked bag waivers, various other fee discounts and waivers, priority boarding, mileage bonuses and your own support line, among other benefits.
