For the next month, United and Marriott credit card cardholders can earn double points when purchasing United flights and booking Marriott hotels with one another. United cardholders earn double miles on stays with Marriott, and Marriott cardholders earn double points when booking flights with United.

Chase United and Marriott Double Up

Key Terms

  • The promo is valid from March 15 through April 15, 2018
  • Register by April 15, 2018
  • You need to be a cardmember by April 1, 2018
  • Earn double Marriott Points (4 points per $) when booking United flights with your Marriott card
  • Earn double United Miles (3 or 2 miles per $ depending on the card) when booking Marriott stays

Which Cards Are Eligible for the Promotion

The promo applies to the following Chase co-branded credit cards:

  • Marriott Rewards® Premier Credit Card
  • Marriott Rewards® Premier Business Credit Card
  • United℠ Explorer Card
  • United℠ Explorer Business Card
  • United MileagePlus® Club Card
  • United MileagePlus® Club Business Card

Our Take

While not a game changer, this promo is a nice little perk, and if you are going to be making any purchases that fit with it, then by all means to register and enjoy some extra points. However, it is hardly worth changing your travel plans, or the credit cards you use to accommodate this promo.

Personally, we'd recommend sticking with the best credit cards for travel purchases.

  • the United Club card is not a bad deal earning 3 points per dollar at Marriott.

  • Lee Ann Bixler says:

    I wouldn’t want to fly United if they paid me. I wonder if this is a PR move.

  • I agree this would be a nice bonus for those who are planning to book flights with United or stays with Marriott anyway but flexible points are so much more useful. I’m trying to book a trip right now and finding the flights I want in United is difficult. I’m wishing I had more UR rather than United Miles right now.

  • thanks – watching for other United deals as we plan a trip

  • Hmm. Would be nice if I hadn’t shifted my loyalty away from United.

  • Howie,
    I am not sure I understand the benefit of this. If I have both these cards, would it be better for me to use the respective ones instead of this promotion?

    • VJ, look at the earning rates for each card. What does a Marriott card earn with Marriott and what does a United card earn with United? If it is more than what the promo offers you should use the card you have with that brand. If it is less you should use the other one to leverage the promo.

      Regardless, if you had a card like the Sapphire Reserve or Citi Prestige card, I’d likely use that instead of either of these. Keep in mind, if you use the free checked bag benefit with United, you’ll want to use your United card.

  • Thanks for the post. It’s a bummer that I don’t have either card 🙁

  • I wonder if this would also apply to SPG since they’re affiliated to Marriott?

  • Alice Chen says:

    Awesome! I have both cards, so this could work really well!

  • Have not seen a bonus like this before. Is this a common way they partner? We have retirement on the horizon at the start of 2019, I am studying all avenues of point and mile accumulation.

  • Very interesting and non-usual promotion. I liked when Hilton gave points+miles for stays, it helped me to save favorite airlines’ miles from expiration

  • Though I have neither cards, I find this promotion really cool as its something different.

  • Well, United’s “Savory Snacks” are at the bottom of the barrel for being the (only) snack offering on flights by airlines that offer free snacks, but if I have free miles from the United Mileage Plus or other United credit card sign up bonuses, or from other offers, I would definitely fly it for free (or if it was the cheapest flight I could buy.)

  • As an addendum to the above. The last couple of days, I noticed that if I post a reply to someone, it just comes out as the last comment as if I posted a new comment, changing it’s point or making it pointless, like when I responded to a question Howie responded to me, but it didn’t show up as a response to that question. The above was supposed to be a response to an above post.

  • Beppoello81 says:

    Double dipping should be the norm, why don’t they run these promotions more often?

  • It’s a nice idea but not enough bonus points.

  • Completely agree.

  • I have the United card but unfortunately my Marriott stay is outside the window. Hope they continue it.
