How to INSTANTLY get Marriott Silver status level when signing up.... (from a variety of companies that Marriott has corporate agreements with.)


There’s a simple link, the format is
http: // www. joinmarriottrewards. com/account/silver/default.aspx?source=COMPANYNAME (Replace COMPANYNAME with the name of your company!! and delete the spaces)


So the link for IBM [joinmarriottrewards.com] is http://www.joinmarriottrewards.com/account/silver/default.aspx?source=IBM

And the link for Accenture [joinmarriottrewards.com] is http://www.joinmarriottrewards.com/account/silver/default.aspx?source=ACCENTURE

And the link for the University of California [joinmarriottrewards.com] is http://joinmarriottrewards.com/account/silver/default.aspx?source=UniversityofCalifornia

ETC ETC...You can try to enter your own company name to see what’s offered, if anything.

Here's some more...
Link for Cisco [joinmarriottrewards.com]
Link for Chevron [joinmarriottrewards.com]
Link for ATT [joinmarriottrewards.com]
Link for Verizon. [joinmarriottrewards.com]
Link for Dell [joinmarriottrewards.com]
Link for Comcast [joinmarriottrewards.com]
Link for Cisco [joinmarriottrewards.com]
Link for Fedex [joinmarriottrewards.com]


Here's a link to the priviliges you get as a Silver elite member. [marriott.com]

And a link to the Fortune 500 companies. [cnn.com] If anyone wants to try and see what works and what doesn't.

I don't know if existing members without status can sign up for this or not...But I'm fairly certain, that if you truly have proof that you work at that company, then Marriott will work with you. Their customer service reps are excellent.

For those that want to use any of these links to sign up, Go ahead...No one is going to ask you for proof of membership at the hotel, but it's a risk you're taking.

Cheers! Big Grin

Quote from MozartA View Post :
You have to book through Marriott website to get the discount? Or can get discount even using site like priceline?
The 10% discount is surely only through Marriott's reservation system, but I have attached my Marriott Rewards number to a Hotwire or Priceline reservation 3 or 4 times and I always get the points credited. So the 20% boost should work at least.

Is there a way to apply this to my existing membership?
Looking for the answer to this as well. I have my account set up to earn Southwest RR points but wouldn't mind the 20% boost.

Great deal...repped.

I will transfer my points from my current account to this new account and close my old account since I don't currently have the silver status on my "old" account.



They don't have any way to verify that you work for ANY of these companies. Just pick a very large one and sign up.
I don't think you can transfer online easily- you have to call and they typically allow transfers only for reward redemptions. I may be wrong but that was my understanding:

http://www.marriott.com/rewards/u...ranpurc.mi

I would not want to have to speak to a rep and lie if your company is not in the list and you used just some link to get status.
Just a thought.

I got a message saying that iIm in Marrirot Rewards, but how do i know if I have silver status? Btw I clicked on the University of California link.
Log on to your account on their website. Your status is right below your name after you log on.

Anyhow, I thought you automatically get the Silver simply by signing up for the rewards account. No?

You're lying if you sign up under a link for a company who doesnt employ you. Wink

Regarding Free Internet Access, do you have to have a room at the hotel to use free internet, or would you be able to log onto their system with your Silver status credentials and access the internet. I was assuming that you get a specific code associated with your booked room.

Most hotels give you a complimentary code when checking in.. if you have achieved a certain status. That code is usually written on business card and good until the hotel decides to change it.. my educated guess would be this happens every 30days or so. Other hotels.. require you to login to the computer and still "purchase" the internet service to use it, the hotel then just bills you at a rate of $0.00 per day due to your higher status. Lastly some hotels just require you input your last name & room number to access the internet.. and with your higher status theres simply nothing to purchase/bill at any rate.

Either way, they make it pretty hard for you to use their internet service.. if you are NOT staying at their hotel. I dont think you can just sit in the lobby of a Marriott and use their internet service for free, without having a reservation.

Yes it DOES work for existing members. I signed in and sent a message to Marriott Rewards telling them what company I worked for and I received the following response:

Dear YoSlick,

Thank you for contacting Marriott Rewards.

We have upgraded your account to the Silver Elite status. It will be valid until February 2013.

We appreciate your continued loyalty as a Marriott Rewards member.

If I can be of further assistance, please reply to this email.

The status isn't permanent? If not, how long do we have till it changes, or how can we keep it at Silver Status?

Looking at YoSlick's experience I wouldn't recommend contacting Marriott to upgrade your account.According to the T&C of this offer, you would get Silver Status for 1 year!!
After upgrading his account they are giving him Silver status till Feb 2013. Ummm... That's only 3 months away! What's the use?


Just use THIS NEW account as your account. Trust me, NOBODY is going to find out or ask you why you have 2 accounts. Same for anybody else who wants to apply but doesn't work for that company. Choose a BIG company like Dell or Chase, and no one is EVER going to ask you to show proof.

I've had this. Pretty much useless. It took me years to get enough points for even one free night. (And I traveled a lot.) They don't upgrade you, they don't give you anything special. Waste of time.

Sadly silver membership level doesnt really offer any great perks. The great perks don't usually come until gold or platinum levels. I have been silver for years until I decided to switch hotel chains. I now tend to stay at Kimpton brands where they are available, far better than Marriott.

I think ANY hotel membership is useless if you're not staying there a lot. But a lot of us have points because we got them with credit card signups. I don't stay at hotels at all...so it would be next to impossible for me to accumulate points. But because of the Chase Marriott credit card, I now have 240k points in my account.

I think that it's better to be Silver than no status at all. Having said that, I agree that as a silver member, the perks are really low.

Interesting....

Lately, I have been enrolled in the megabonus promotion, and I get a free night after 2 stays.

So far, I have used about 20 free nights (get about 2-3 every quarter).

Silver isnt really great... Upgrades if available. Gold is where the benefits really kick in (Lounge access)

The account was supposed to be active in 48 hrs, I am unable to create password online as it does not recognize my membership number. Anyone else log in fine?


Edit: my company is on the list, so I sent an email to customer service about the account and am now able to log in and make my booking.
