I rarely fly United, but was checking for flights to Maui and when I logged into my United account I notice it shows PLATINUM. I did register for the Marriott/United status program giving me SILVER status on United based on my PLATINUM status w/ Marriott.
So, I called United and asked them when I was upgraded to Platinum. They told me that their notes show that based on a "RewardsPlus" promotion I was given Platinum status on 11/1/2014 and would expire on 12/31/2014 (tomorrow). I currently have 0 miles with United this year, so I really doubt it will renew for 2015.
If I had known about the United Platinum, I definitely would have flown them more.
Has anyone else been given Platinum on United based on their Marriott level? Any details if this status match will continue for 2015?
