If you’ve got Hilton status or the Platinum Card from American Express, pay attention. It’s about to pay off for your next Vegas visit.
A series of status matching through two different hotel brands (Wyndham Rewards and Caesars Rewards) can get you Diamond status at Caesar’s, which gets you some great perks in Las Vegas including a $100 “celebration dinner.” On paper, this status matching merry-go-round only works for one year.
But thanks to a quirk in how the two hotel chains define their status years, it’s possible. You see, Wyndham status ends at the end of December, while your Caesar’s status won’t expire until the end of January. And that gives you an opening to keep it going, as Miles to Memories laid out.
Because Caesar’s Diamond status won’t lapse for another few weeks, you can actually use that status to match to top-tier Wyndham Diamond status. And once February rolls around, you can use your newly extended Wyndham Diamond status to match back to Caesar’s Diamond status.
Got all that? Good. It should only be a few minutes of work, and it will get you another year with waived resort fees at Caesar’s properties, a $100 dinner free, free show tickets, and more.
Haven’t climbed up to Caesar’s Diamond status yet? Follow our guide to get started, then revisit this guide when it’s time to re-up.
How to Keep Your Caesar’s Diamond Status for 2020
If you’re ready to renew your status, start by heading to Wyndham’s dedicated page for Caesar’s status matching. Just sign in to your Wyndham account and plug in your Caesar’s account number – the matching process should be automatic.
Come February, you’ll be able to re-up your Caesar’s Diamond status by heading to Caesar’s site and selecting: “I’m a Wyndham Rewards Member, Match My Status!”
And it’s really that easy.
It’s no small feat that you can use low-level hotel status to unlock top status in Las Vegas – and all the perks that come with it. Extending top-tier Caesar’s Diamond status for 2020 should be even easier!
