I am trying to sign up for the MileagePlus Premier® Silver status with the following link: Earn Air Miles | Marriott Rewards and MileagePlus
When I click on the enroll link, it goes to a bad link. Any way someone can help me with this? I had to sign up for new mileage plus number today as my old one is no longer in the system. I haven't flown on UA in many years, but have just booked multiple trips on them.
Give this link a try and see if you are able to sign up through UA.
The link you provided sent me to the Rewards Plus page.
This program is worthless. I just returned from a vacation to Mexico via United Airlines. One of the benefits is supposed to be 1 free checked bag. I attempted to redeem this upon checking in at the desk in the airport and the personal didn't think I qualified. I was excited initially to receive this benefit since I travel frequently. Well, looks like my fancy new membership card is now going into the garbage since it's totally worthless. I sure thought this program through Marriott would really have some worth to it but I guess not. Bull **** program....
Doesn't sound right at all. Did you take your MileagePlus card which should have been Premier Silver with you?Regardless, your MileagePlus Account had it been tied to your reservation would have come up with you being Silver at a minimum.
Yep, not the best program if you are only a Silver, but at least you get some perks from UA.
The gal helping me at the desk asked another coworker who appeared to be a manager of some sort. She said I needed to be Gold status. I couldn't even make an appeal to another employee. I think they aren't clear about the benefits. Yes, I had my card with me. Any way to get a refund?
Contact United Customer Service. The rules are quite clear. Silver gets 1 free checked bag.
Mistake wasn't Marriott and the program isn't BS. As long as you had your Silver Card with you, you are covered. If you don't have the card you can give them your United Mileage Plus number and they can look it up themselves.
Yep, that Agent screwed up and it's very very clear as John_Thai has noted a couple of times. Call United CS and have them review your itinerary and have them refund your money for the checked bag. If you get any flack then I'd dispute the charge to your credit card company.
