PSA: Match Wyndham Status To Caesars Rewards Now

Update 2/1/22: Now time to do this

Update 1/4/2021: It’s now time to do this for 2021. Caesars status has been extended through 2021 you’re able to ‘earn’ status again. This should unlock a second celebration dinner as well. Hat tip to MtM

This is a friendly reminder to match your Caesars Rewards status to Wyndham, you’ll want to do this before the end of January. Then in February you use your Wyndham status to match back to Caesars Rewards. The reason that this works is that Wyndham status year ends on January 1st, whereas the Caesars Program ends on January 31st. This basically just means if you time things right you can status match between the two programs. If you don’t already have status then your best bet is to match status to Wyndham with another program (full list can be found here). Having Caesars status is the really useful one as it includes benefits such as:

Note that the free stays usually require gambling play otherwise they reserve the right to charge you, so not as useful as they have previously been. This matching back and forth is similar to the Hyatt/M Life matching trick.

Hi everyone! You all should be back to diamond if you were downgraded 🤭 they will allow it for this whole year. Check your accounts: mine is back!

Got an email from Caesars, back to Diamond now. They will be enforcing the no match to match rule starting next year… Went Diamond->Plat->Diamond.

I see quite a few Caesars Diamond getting clawed back to gold from the Wyndham business earner status match. Let’s say I was temporary Diamond at Caesars and booked my free trip to Atlantis. Somewhere about 1-2 weeks prior to arriving and got clawed back to gold, what would happen in such a situation? Thx!

There few things to unwrap here.
1) I have at least 7 or 8 DPs with Wyndham Biz Card matches, and all people are matched successfully, and no clawbacks. Some are even matched later in April, as they just got the card. Would be great if you could double check your DPs, and may be you can resubmit the request, as per new T&C, and according to several clarifications the Wyndham status from the card is considered earned.
2) Re Atlantis “booked Diamond arrived Gold” situation.. I do not think we will have many DPs here, but you can call and ask, but would need to rephrase the question differently. I would ask “what if I book now for Feb 2023, and by that time I do not maintain my Diamond status, what would have happen?” My guess, if they re-check you would be on the hook to pay the regular rate… or whatever promption applies to Gold (and Golds do get some discounts as well).
Good Luck

They finally matched mine after like 2+ weeks.

Seems you just have to be patient.

just received an email from caesars

WE APOLOGIZE
Dear,

It looks like we tier matched your status through our partnership with Wyndham Rewards. However, we will be downgrading your account because you must have an earned Tier Status with your loyalty program to be successfully matched.

The good news is that there are many ways to reach a higher Tier Status with Caesars Rewards®. Earn Tier Credits when you shop, stay, play, dine and more!

Had been status matched to Diamond on 3/2. Received this email just now “It looks like we tier matched your status through our partnership with Wyndham Rewards. However, we will be downgrading your account because you must have an earned Tier Status with your loyalty program to be successfully matched.”

If you’re still waiting, don’t even bother. Everyone it’s back to either platinum or gold. The only way you can get diamond it’s by getting the Wyndham credit card and pay the anula 97 dollars. If you actually go to Vegas a lot it’s worth it.

The card was well worth it even before that. The annual bonus alone pays for the annual fee twice if not 3 times. Not to mention other multipliers and sign up bonus. Now Caesars Diamond match makes it a must have.

It’s worth it for the free Wyndham points alone. Diamond is a bonus.

Those Wyndham points can be used at a $150/night La Quinta.

I’ll pay $100/year for that.

(You can also transfer them to Caesars where with no resort fees, you can stay like 5+ nights for those points).

Wow. Reverted back to gold

Submitted on 2/2 and again a few weeks later. Still Gold….I am at 0 tier credits and wonder if they are prioritizing matches for folks with higher tier balances?

Adam or the match req may be ignored & the gold status will stay as is
