How do I connect my 2 accounts so that I can get Premier status on United airlines?
I did it through the following link (but, FYI, it took 2 or 3 tries):
Earn Air Miles | Marriott Rewards and MileagePlus
Oddly, after the 2nd or 3rd time when it finally worked it said it would be active in 7-10 days. Then it activated the next day. But, today (2 weeks later), I dropped back to no status and had to go back and do it again and it again says it will be active in 7-10 days.
Thanks. The first time I tried it it first said I was eligible - then when I clicked register it said I was not. So I tried again and it accepted my registration and said it would take 7-10 days. Hope it works.
The same happened to me. I registered and it said I was eligible. Then it denied me I did it again and it worked. I got the UA Silver in the same day--during a flight coast to coast.
I got the Premier status already - I just hope I get to keep it!
Since it dropped my status I've gone back and tried to register several times and it always says "Registration is complete" and that it'll take 7-10 days. Status still hasn't returned. I hope it does as I have a flight coming up on Friday and will probably get an upgrade if I get the status.
Silver rarely gets an complementary upgrade...
This is not on UA, but a Star Alliance Partner flight and I seem to always get an upgrades on this carrier for being Star Alliance Silver (granted it's a pretty small sample size.)
