I’m Still Marriott Gold Elite w/out United Status, Thanks RewardsPlus!

Even though United yanked my elite status all the way back in October, I’ve managed to maintain my Marriott Gold Elite status which was obtained as part of the United / Marriott RewardsPlus program with my matched UA 1K status. The program offers complimentary Gold Elite status in Marriott Rewards to MileagePlus Premier Gold members and above. When the Marriott status hung around throughout 2013 (even after losing my UA status), I figured it would revert back to Silver status once the 2014 Marriott Rewards year began. However, when logging into my account today I received the following – “Congratulations! Your Gold Elite status has been renewed”:

Now I’m thinking that since my United status match was processed after July 2013 and therefore my Marriott Gold membership also began after July 2013, that perhaps I’ve been given status until 2015? In any case I’m very happy as I had only one stay at Marriott hotels last year…not that I plan to have many more this year. In any case, I’ll keep everyone updated…
