After lots of request I decided to actively pursue a Status Match with Wyndham Rewards this week, requesting a match to their Diamond level and after update cross-matching it to Caesars Diamond.
Members from select competing programs are invited to match their status to Gold, Platinum or Diamond. Platinum and Diamond status requires members to complete 7 or 14 nights over a 90 day period to keep the status active through the end of the following calendar year.
You can access the status match promotion on Wyndham Rewards website here.
These are Wyndham Rewards Elite Benefits:
You will follow the link above and then select your current program from a drop down menu. If your program is not listed just select “Other” for Wyndham’s consideration (I used Hyatt Globalist).
Good news: After completing and sending the form it took ~ 36 hours for Wyndham to process it and adjust my status to Diamond, sending me a welcome email!
I then went to the corresponding Caesars Rewards website to match my new Diamond status over to them.
Keep in mind this also works vice versa if you’re a Caesars Rewards status member and want to match back to Wyndham (I wrote about the Caesars Diamond Match for competing casino tiers yesterday).
Again this match was approved within 48 hours, but can take up to a week. Since this is a players club with age restriction you have to go to an actual player club booth at a casino to pick up your credentials and set up a pin. ID verification is mandatory to ensure age restrictions.
I already had an active Caesars Rewards (former Total Rewards) account so that wasn’t a problem. The bonus items such as the US$100 dinner voucher and free show tickets should be loaded into the account soon. Also all resort fees are waived when staying as a Diamond at Caesars properties.
Even though you won’t fulfill the Wyndham status match requirement the Caesars status will usually stick until the end of the annual membership period (Jan 31st of each year).
This is a very efficient status match combination that brings plenty of benefits and can save you a lot of money over the course of the year so it’s definitely worth looking into.
These are the Terms and Conditions of the Wyndham status match:
Pursuant to these terms and conditions (the “Status Match Terms”), each member of any hotel loyalty program identified below (each individually, a “Hotel Loyalty Program” and collectively, the “Hotel Loyalty Programs”) who has achieved status in such program pursuant to its terms and conditions is eligible to apply to match his/her Hotel Loyalty Program status to the equivalent Member Level of the Wyndham Rewards Program, as set forth in the chart here (the successful completion of such process hereinafter referred to as the “Status Match”).
To request the Equivalent Member Level, an eligible Hotel Loyalty Program member (an “Applicant”) must: (i) visit https://www.wyndhamhotels.com/wyndham-rewards/status-match and either sign into their existing Wyndham Rewards account, or complete and submit the “Join Wyndham Rewards” form to become a Wyndham Rewards Member; and (ii) complete and submit the Status Match Request Form, including proof of their Hotel Loyalty Program status. Upon Wyndham Rewards’ verification of an Applicant’s Hotel Loyalty Program status information, such Applicant will receive the applicable Equivalent Member Level. Member should expect to receive such validation via email between 5-7 days from submission of his/her Status Match Request Form. Such Equivalent Member Level will become effective upon such verification. Unless extended or superseded in accordance with the Wyndham Rewards Program terms and conditions (the “WR Terms”), each Wyndham Rewards Gold Member Level obtained pursuant to these Status Match Terms will expire in accordance with the WR Terms. Each Wyndham Rewards Platinum Member Level obtained pursuant to these Status Match Terms will expire ninety (90) days after the date of the applicable Member’s Status Match verification email (the date of such email, hereinafter, such Member’s “Effective Date”), unless, prior to the expiration of such ninety (90) day period, Member completes seven (7) Qualifying Nights or his/her Wyndham Rewards Platinum Member Level is extended or superseded in accordance with the WR Terms. In the event that Member completes seven (7) Qualifying Nights within such ninety (90) day period, his/her Wyndham Rewards Platinum Member Level will remain in effect through December 31 of the calendar year following the calendar year in which such 7th Qualifying Night was completed, unless it is extended or superseded in accordance with the WR Terms. Each Wyndham Rewards Diamond Member Level obtained pursuant to these Status Match Terms will expire ninety (90) days from such Member’s Effective Date, unless, prior to the expiration of such ninety (90) day period, Member completes fourteen (14) Qualifying Nights or his/her Wyndham Rewards Diamond Member Level is extended or superseded in accordance with the WR Terms. In the event that Member completes fourteen (14) Qualifying Nights within such ninety (90) day period, his /her Wyndham Rewards Diamond Member Level will remain in effect through December 31 of the calendar year following the calendar year in which such 14th Qualifying Night was completed, unless it is extended or superseded in accordance with the WR Terms.
Members who obtain the Wyndham Rewards PLATINUM Member Level or Wyndham Rewards DIAMOND Member Level as a result of the Status Match will receive all of the perks offered to PLATINUM and DIAMOND Members, respectively, who earn such status as the result of completing the requisite number of qualifying nights at participating properties, with the exception of the points bonus (3,000 Wyndham Rewards points for PLATINUM Members and 6,000 Wyndham Rewards points for DIAMOND Members). For clarity, the point bonus is not available to members who have obtained their Platinum or Diamond Member Levels via the Status Match.
Should Wyndham Rewards be unable to verify a Member’s Hotel Loyalty Program status, as determined in its sole discretion, the Hotel Loyalty Program member will not receive the Equivalent Member Level.
For clarity, Hotel Loyalty Program members must be or become Wyndham Rewards Members to apply for the Status Match. Any Applicant who has already obtained the Wyndham Rewards Member Level this offer otherwise would have afforded them will retain such preexisting Wyndham Rewards Member Level in accordance with the WR Terms, and the Status Match will be deemed ineffective.
Any Hotel Loyalty Program member who completes a Status Match in accordance with these Status Match Terms, and subsequently upgrades to the subsequent status in the respective Hotel Loyalty Program, will be eligible, at the time of such upgrade, to apply for a Status Match to the subsequent Wyndham Rewards Member Level in accordance with these Status Match Terms.
Status Match eligibility is not transferable and may not be substituted for or combined with any other offer. A Member Level earned pursuant to this Status Match cannot be transferred, purchased or sold. A Member’s Hotel Loyalty Program status and the benefits applicable to each such status are subject to the applicable Hotel Terms and Conditions. A Member’s Wyndham Rewards Member Level status and the benefits applicable to each Member Level are subject to the full WR Terms. This offer may be cancelled or modified at any time, without notice, and is void where prohibited.
