Q: If I registered and was granted complimentary Marriott Rewards Gold Elite status through RewardsPlus and have re–qualified for MileagePlus Premier Gold® status or higher for the following year, will I need to also re–register my request for complimentary Gold Elite status for the following year?

A: No. Members who have already registered for and received complimentary Marriott Rewards Gold Elite status through RewardsPlus in a calendar year and who qualify for MileagePlus Premier Gold® status or higher for the following calendar year will have their previous registration with RewardsPlus automatically renewed and will receive complimentary Marriott Rewards Gold Elite status for the following calendar year.

-------------------------------

For the United elites who are new to Marriott Rewards, here are the benefits you receive as Gold. Please familiarize yourself with what you are and are not entitled to as a Marriott Gold.

Also, please be nice to the Marriott 'newbies' who come to this forum to figure out what UA Silver gets (or doesn't get) them.

And here is a thread with some details for the newly-minted UA Silvers:

Same deal as last year. Marriott cheesed out and went cheapo on the package, with no cards. Cards which cost them, what, a penny?

As with last year, the brochure clearly mentions that they've gone to virtual cards.

Can't say I blame them. They're pointless and mine go straight in the trash.

Yeah, I got a card, too. Maybe 'cuz I went from Gold to Platinum?

EDIT: Opps, wrong card. Got UA card due to above. Got Marriott card, probably 'cuz I went from Platinum Premier to LT Platinum.

Did anybody else have their UA Silver status disappear today? Oddly, I am still a Marriott Plat for 2016 (was in 2015, too), but today my UA status fell to "member" only.

This is quite unfortunate, since I have a pair of flights coming up two days from now where my CPU odds are strong, even for a silver (perhaps this is why UA is dropping one of the flights after the end of March...?).

I re-applied online on the RewardsPlus website this morning, but I doubt that is going to help me. Does anyone know how long the linkage takes? I can't remember from last year when I did it.

This is quite unfortunate - I actually bought the ticket explicitly because of my UA status (AA was cheaper). Guess that's a WIN-WIN from their point of view...

I liked the card because it had the international customer service numbers on it.

I'll answer my own question. This morning, when I went to do online check-in, my account was back showing Premier Silver elite! And I'm #1 on the waitlist (too bad it didn't auto-clear... )

Excellent turnaround time, IMHO.

Thank you for your loyalty."

OK, that looks like progress. About time.
So did it finally go through? How long did it take for your MR account to be updated to gold?

Mine dropped and is still gone despite reaching out to Marriott (and already having requalified for 2017 Marriott Plat due to rollover). Oddly it held my *S (even though it only showed me as member) for a flight this past Monday even giving free bags and free E+ at check-in but mileage earning was only at 5x not 7x.

I've got the reverse, I just checked my Marriott page and saw I was only listed as Marriott silver rather than gold, even though I'm UA gold. I suppose I should call Marriott to try to get this sorted.
