Free Marriott Silver Status

Today’s been all about free hotel status, starting with Langham Hotels 1865 Voyager status and then Accor Platinum.

Now, via FatWallet, a simple explanation of how Marriott signs up people at the Silver status level from a variety of companies that they have corporate agreements with.

There’s a simple link, the format is

So the link for IBM is

And the link for Accenture is

And the link for the University of California is

… to give a few examples, each of which open new accounts at the Silver level. You can try to enter your own company name to see what’s offered, if anything. (For instance, Microsoft has a page but it doesn’t offer silver status.)

The benefits of Marriott Rewards silver status aren’t exceptional, but it’s better to be Silver of course than a non-status guest.

  1. ok you got me. this appears to be for creating a new account. How do you get it applied to an existing account, or can you?

  2. Scott, I suppose you could apply for a new account? Just did that myself as I have zero points.

  3. Shell has its own page but only for standard account. Curious if there are offers for Gold.
    Will Marriot send a card to these people?

  4. As Scott C mentioned … Ran through it and it created a new account for me … Any way to sign up to existing account?

  5. Does your email have to end in the @”companyname”.com? I tried to signup with my regular email but it didn’t work.

  6. I received an email with my membership # and it said it takes up to 48 hours to process and then I can create an account. I tried to make one with the membership # but I received an error — which I’m guessing it hasn’t been processed yet. How long does it usually take until I can create an account, and afterward does the status show up instantly?

  7. @Mike T
    I have the same question as yours. It has been 23 hours since they sent the email, so I will wait for another day. 🙂

  8. @kvr @road2elysium you have to click on create online account in the email link they sent you and create an online account.

  9. Looking for an update… Did anyone get their existing account upgraded from base membership to silver (or higher)? I’d rather not have 2 accounts going. Thx
