Wyndham Rewards and Casino Loyalty Program Total Rewards (Caesars Entertainment Group) are offering a reciprocal status match all the way up to Diamond status in each others programs.
Yesterday Total Rewards sent out another email advertising the option matching the existing status on TR with Wyndham all the way to Diamond Status. You can also transfer rewards points in between the two accounts.
We are excited to announce the newest benefit of the Total Rewards® and Wyndham Rewards partnership.
-NEW! Transfer Wyndham Rewards Points to Reward Credits® & Reward Credits to Wyndham Rewards Points.1
-Link your Diamond Total Rewards account to a Wyndham Rewards account and your status will be matched to enjoy their Diamond perks. And vice versa.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
You can access the promotional website here where all matching and transfer options are outlined.
I’m currently Total Rewards Diamond and have not done anything with Wyndham Rewards before so I signed up for a new account first. Important to note is that you need to enter the exact same information (address and especially name) on both accounts.
I figured this out after getting a few error messages that said ‘information could not be verified’ so i made sure all details match up exactly by updating my Total Rewards info. Their system is strange as it always messes up the information you enter which isn’t remotely what you originally put in so watch that!
As soon as everything got corrected the match was done instantly:
The benefits (especially on the Diamond Level) are actually quite significant on the part of Total Rewards where it comes with a waiver of resort fees and access to the Diamond Lounges.
For Wyndham Rewards Diamond members benefits include Early Check-In, Suite Upgrades, Welcome Amenity and the option to gift Wyndham Gold Status once per calendar year.
I can’t remember when I stayed at a Wyndham Hotel brand during the last ten years but you never know if the opportunity won’t arise at some point and in that case it will certainly be beneficial to have the status. A similar situation happened to me last week when I had a last second overnight at a Best Western and got really great treatment there as a Best Western Diamond which I matched last year.
The real gem in this relationship between Wyndham and Caesars is the option to match to Total Rewards and get the benefits at the casino properties. Those who carry Wyndham Rewards status should certainly take advantage of it. Unfortunately Wyndham doesn’t match with other hotel chains at this point.
