Before the year ends and accounts reset, make sure to take advantage of one perk that many Marriott Bonvoy® elite members might not even know exists. Titanium and Ambassador Elites can get instant United MileagePlus® Silver Premier® status.

Premier Silver Benefits

The status is United’s base Premier® level, but it offers some decent perks for the occasional UA flyer. One other thing to note: if you hold Gold, Platinum, 1K®, or Global Services® status with United, but no status with Marriott Bonvoy®, you can match to Gold Elite status with the hotel’s loyalty program.

Anthony’s Take: Free is free and if you have Titanium or Ambassador status with Marriott Bonvoy®, but are not a United Premier® member, this offer is worth taking the few minutes to complete.

Also like the first row when I travel.

It’s my favorite spot.

While anything free is nice, I really with both United and Marriott would sweeten the benefit for those who are already making use of the other program. Matching high-end on one program to low-end on the other is more about providing a taste of special services, but if they want to create a long-lasting synergy they should reward folks who already have status somehow as well (such as full EQN or PQP credit instead).

I agree. I’m an Ambassador with Marriott and United GS, so I don’t see anything from it. There should be some tiered options.

I had no status with United. Getting Silver has already gotten me upgraded on a flight. I think this is GREAT

Seems like I am in the minority; free is free. If you want something more from the United or Marriott’s partnership, then just pay out of your pocket. I mean, there is already enough entitlement.
