Marriott and United Launch Top-Tier Status Promo
Marriott Bonvoy and United MileagePlus have a preferred partnership called RewardsPlus, which allows elite members of both programs to receive reciprocal benefits. The partnership also allows for seamless points/miles transfers between the programs.

Through March 31, 2024, Marriott and United are levelling up their partnership by offering their respective top-tier members, Marriott Ambassador and United Premier 1K, a limited-time promotion.
The basic mechanics of the promotion are as follows:
- Marriott Bonvoy Ambassador members who spend $4,000 (USD) on United flights from January 1–March 31, 2024, will earn 40 PlusPoints
- United MileagePlus Premier 1K members who spend $3,000 (USD) at Marriott properties from January 1–March 31, 2024, will earn three Nightly Upgrade Awards (formerly Suite Night Awards)
