Earn United Premier status via Marriott credit card

Rewards Plus Marriott UnitedWell, if you are a very, very big credit card spender…

You can now earn United Premier Silver status if you hold Marriott Platinum status thanks to the new RewardsPlus program from United and Marriott.

With the Marriott Rewards Premier Visa Signature Card from Chase, you can earn Marriott Platinum status purely via annual spending on the card.

How much?

  • You need 75 total elite night credits to get Marriott Platinum
  • The credit card gives you 15 credit each year.
  • Then, each $3,000 you spend gives you one more credit, with no limit
  • So, if you spend $225,000 on the card each year you’ll end up with Marriott Platinum status, and thus United Premier Silver status, which entitles you to a free checked bag and day of departure access to Economy Plus seats.

It’s not the biggest benefit in the world, and not many people are going to go out of the way for that. But if you’re already close to Marriott Platinum status each year this can help you get to United Premier Silver a lot faster, without 25,000 miles in flying each year.

The better deal in all of this is for United Premier members. All Gold and higher level Premier members get full Marriott Gold Elite status, which get you free breakfast at many Marriott properties, as well as free internet, late check-out, and occasional room upgrades. Anyone who has paid for breakfast and Internet at a hotel knows that can save you $30 or more every night.
