Marriott Bonvoy and Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer will now allow elite members of their respective loyalty programs to match their status to each program. It takes mere minutes to do so and the new status will be valid for 12 months.

Here’s what you need to know about this new opportunity, known as the Preferred Program.

New Status Match and Accelerator Opportunities

If you currently have at least Marriott Bonvoy Gold or Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Elite Silver status, you can status match from one program to the other.

Further, each program is offering accelerator opportunities for those who successfully match their status.

KrisFlyer Elite Silver members can complete a challenge to earn Marriott Bonvoy Silver status. This can be achieved by staying 3 qualifying nights in participating hotels within 6 months of registration.

KrisFlyer Elite Gold members, along with Solitaire PPS Club and PPS Club members, can match their status directly to Marriott Bonvoy Gold status, which comes with valuable perks such as 2 p.m. late checkout, bonus points, and room upgrades (subject to availability).

These members can then earn Bonvoy Platinum status after staying 10 qualifying nights at participating hotels. Stays must be completed within 6 months of registration.

Marriott Bonvoy Gold members can partake in an accelerator offer to earn KrisFlyer Elite Silver status. Members need to fly 2 qualifying KrisFlyer commercial flights within 6 months of registration. Airfare purchased in the G fare class, award tickets, and codeshare flights are excluded.

Those with Marriott Bonvoy Platinum, Titanium, and Ambassador status can match directly to KrisFlyer Elite Silver status. These members can step up to KrisFlyer Elite Gold Status by flying 4 qualifying flights on a Singapore Airlines commercial flight. Airfare purchased in the G fare class, award tickets, and codeshare flights are excluded. The flights must be completed within 6 months of registration.

Hot Tip:

Registration is required to participate in any of these status match/challenge opportunities. Link your accounts at this page to start your status match!

Final Thoughts

Marriott and Singapore Airlines’ Preferred Program is an opportunity for eligible members to earn complimentary elite status in either program. Even better, there are accelerator offers that allow members to step up to an even higher level of status after completing a set flying or staying requirements.
