Platinum Premier gets a real benefit...

...UA Gold.

 

Yes folks, after years of criticism of the empty vessel that is PP, Marriott is apparently awarding PPs UA Gold (as opposed to silver for Plats).

 

This is according to PPs on FT, so are any of our resident PPs here able to confirm?

*EDIT* AND IT IS CONFIRMED BY painedplatinum and by bpelican who has actually received an official letter...

 

Not that I have any chance of reaching PP . Mind you, I'm not sure I'd want to spend so much time away from home and hearth!

    I haven't received any notification on this. Any word from FT on how folks are being notified?

    They're logging into their UA account and finding they are now Gold... Although there is no word from Marriott about this, the numbers are too significant to be a coincidental mistake about criteria by all those posting now across a couple of FT threads

    That's great painedplatinum. I'll also add you to the list of resident PPs. And as the first to confirm you get a "correct" #applause

     

    Then again, I suppose it's use to you depends upon whether you fly, or can conveniently fly, United...

    Right Bob....I try to fly American/USAir whenever possible. They have the bulk of my miles for sure. I may see one United flight per year if AA doesn't fly to my destination or the fare difference is too great to ignore.

    Thanks for posting, brightlybob!

     

    It seems that other members of the community are experiencing what you've introduced to the forum here (Thanks for the response painedplatinum!)

     

    Strange that there was no announcement? Did any of you receive a notification of any kind around this?

    Just received a brochure from Marriott rewards: "In appreciation for your Platinum Premier membership in Marriott Rewards we've extended to you United MileagePlus Premier Gold status through RewardsPlus, our exclusive partnership with MileageaPlus--no registration required."  So it's now official.  Thank you for the heads-up.

    Time to be selfish. For some of us this is meaningless because we are already Gold or above on UA. So how about Marriott and UA get together and give us a little love. Like say PP gets Gold on UA, or if already Gold gets a bump one status level up.

    This is very good news.  Wouldn't it be great if there was an "official" designation of the requirements for pp??
