The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Total Rewards is currently offering a status match to Diamond status through January 31st, 2020, you must have either Gold or Platinum status with Caesars already (gold is entry level, so everybody should be eligible).

  • You can also get this status extended through December 31st, 2020 by hitting the tier credits required in the chart below:

The Fine Print

  • The “Offer Period” for this Offer is February 1 through December 31, 2019
  • Participants that had their Caesars Rewards accounts upgraded via the 2018 Diamond Tier Match Offer will not qualify for this offer

Our Verdict

Total Rewards is being renamed Caesar Rewards on February 1st, 2019. There are a few reasons why you might want Total Rewards/Caesar Rewards Diamond status:

You need to have gold or platinum status already, but gold status is the entry level so everybody has that.  It isn’t clear what statuses with other hotel programs they will match to, if anybody knows then please share in the comments below.

Can we do this if we’ve simply status matched to Wyndham rewards Diamond from Marriott Gold Elite and not completed the challenge? Does the Caesars status then still stick or do we lose it in 90 days?

Jace

Just send them the ‘Overview’/’Account’ page. When I sent mine, it had some meager ID rewards activity and didn’t directly show my stay, they still matched it just fine to WR Diamond (no questions asked).

So I just matched from TR to Wyndham diamond, currently it shows my diamond member will be expired on 12/31/19. I guess the 90 days challenge is for credit card status match only? So I guess I will match back to Cesars reward to get my diamond back on 2/1/19?

Hi William,

I think you misread the offer. You have to present a high level card from a competitor and they will upgrade you.

For example, I’ve gone to The Borgata in New Jersey probably 6-7 times. I’m still at the Sapphire level. The next level up is Pearl. Then it is Gold, Platinum and Noir. The last three are required to get this Diamond Tier upgrade.

buddy, i think you misread. Gold is the bottom tier of TR. What you are listing is MLife tiers where gold is the third tier. Got me confused for a few minutes there.

Might want to add that people who take advantage of the World of Hyatt – MLife status match can use their MLife status for this status match.

Did some digging. Looks like I can match Hilton Diamond to Wyndham Diamond for 90 days, then match Wyndham Diamond to TR Diamond during the 90day, be able to keep TR pass 90days?? Then match TR Diamond back to Wyndham Diamond??
Would this work? Sounds too good to be true

When you status match to Wyndham Diamond, do you get a membership card?

Any idea if I can get this status match in Ceasar’s Casinos in London? I won’t get to Vegas any time soon to get the match but will be in London.

I see that Caesars won’t give the status match in 2019 if you got it in 2018. Luckily I used Hard Rock Biloxi status last year to match to TR Diamond and then matched that to Wyndham Diamond. My Wyndham Diamond expired 12/31/18 but I just matched the TR Diamond to get it back and will use the renewed Wyndham status to rematch to TR Diamond next month. As long as the overlap exists it’s essentially Wyndham Diamond and TR Diamond for life.

Back? It never went away. Totalrewards has always been matching top tier cards, only once per acct. Misleading.

I tried doing this last year with SPG platinum and they said I needed a casino competitor status to match. I only have platinum with Total Rewards this year.

you should be able to match that to Wyndham and from there to Caesars

I’ve matched (with my Wyndham) on 26th of December (hoping they’ll give me in the beginning of the January, I was in Vegas for CES) and they’ve quickly matched and gave TR Diamond only till Jan 31st 2019. At TR desk they’ve said that its an once per lifetime opportunity and that they can’t extend it… Any suggestions?

Diamond lounge access only works once you meet 15k tier credits, otherwise they don’t let you in.

Last year I think I used Hilton Diamond to match to Wyndham Diamond, then matched that to TR Diamond. My Wyndham Diamond expired earlier this week, but was able to rematch it from TR Diamond online, which took about 10 seconds.

The $100 celebration dinner benefit expires 1/31 of each year, so if you have TR Diamond now make sure you use it up. I just used mine at my local Harrah’s casino. It’s a good idea to call the casino/restaurant to make sure you can use your $100 voucher there before going, but to use it you just need to give them your rewards card and tell them to use the voucher and it will come off your bill. Keep in mind you can’t use it for the gratuity, and it’s a one time use, so if you only spend $40 then the rest is lost.

Once my TR Diamond expires at the end of the month I’m going to match again from Wyndham.

How do you know you whether you have it or not? Does it show somewhere in your account, or should you just “get it” when you become Diamond? Harrahs is my local casino too, so I’d appreciate your advice.

I believe it’s an automatic benefit for Diamond status. You can always check with the membership or promo desk (whatever they call it – the place where they print out your card) to make sure it’s on your account. I think you can even call in and have them verify as well. Just call the number on your card for member services and someone should be able to look it up.

It also looks like the complimentary stay at Atlantis is no longer complimentary unless Diamonds achieve 15,000 points in the program. Anyone read the conditions differently?

So, since we should all have Caesars Diamond and Wyndham Diamond at this point.. Time to take a trip to Atlantic City to status match from Caesars to MGM MLife Gold (& Hyatt Explorist) while the promo is active.

I just want to get this straight.. so for DC area residents/Maryland to get Caesars Diamond status we need to go to the Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore to match with Wyndham Diamond status? We can’t directly match Wyndham Diamond status with the MGM in National Harbor? I called (transferred from the hotel main number) the MGM National Harbor M-life desk (open 24 hours) and inquired about status matching and the person that answered said he only matches if people have no MGM account whatsoever.

Two different things, Sparky.
1. Caesars and Wyndham are partners. You can match online using their respective websites if you already have diamond with either/or. Otherwise, you can acquire Diamond with Caesars using DOC’s method above.
2. AFTER you have Caesars Diamond, however you got it, you can match to MGM / HYATT (who are NOT Caesars partners) using the method I posted that you replied to. It looks like its ONLY at the Borgata, at least that’s how I read the promo.
