Full details and a FAQ are available at www.united.com/rewardsplus and https://mrrewardsplus.com/en_US/details/

From the FAQS:

If I already have Marriott Gold Elite status or higher and MileagePlus Premier Silver status or higher, do I need to register for RewardsPlus?

No. Please note that the website will accept your registration, but your status will not change. You also do not need to register for the enhanced miles and points benefits that will launch in the coming weeks.

Feb 2017 Data Point:

You can expedite a 'pending' upgrade to Silver before March 1st if you need it:

i also lost my UA status Feb 1 and was also pending UA Silver for after 2.28 once my eligibility was confirmed. i called MAR Plat CS and asked about expediting because of an upcoming flight. i called MR Platinum at 11PM. The rep said she couldn't do it, the dept that does it was closed, but that she send a message to them. she didn't know how long it would take them, but thought it would be done within 2 days. 11 hours later, at 10am the next morning, UA Silver status was showing when i logged into my UA acct online.

Have you combined your Marriott and SPG accts, my inlaws were in a similar situation and it turned out they had not linked their accts yet and were somehow using a new number previously associated with their SPG acct, once they combined accts they jumped up a level for lifetime status.

My husband's accounts were combined early on. I guess I will have to get after Marriott again as they have dropped the ball. I am so disappointed in this brand.

UA 1Ks only get Marriott Gold now, so if you are expecting higher status, it will have to be because of your husband’s LT status. So how many Lifetime nights/points/years does he have?

From UA website:

You're golden
You're just moments away from complimentary Marriott BonvoyTM Gold Elite status.*
Enjoy exclusive hotel perks, including:
  • Complimentary enhanced Wi-Fi
  • Guaranteed late checkout as late as 2 p.m.
  • 25% bonus Marriott Bonvoy points on stays
  • And much more

Hi Karen2. I recall you from the PiP back in the old days.

If your problem is with Marriott, may I suggest you contact William R. Sanders, who you may remember used to do wonders as the Starwood Lurker. He has come over to Marriott in the merger and posts under the handle Marriott Bonvoy Lurker. He may be able to help. Maybe a PM?

So the consensus is that there is no working online option at this point?
