GUIDE: Casino Status Matching (Now that Wyndham Match is DEAD!)


Casino Match Status

Casino Status Match Opportunities are a popular topic since casino rewards programs offer a ton of ways to get perks and benefits even when you're not visiting Las Vegas or other gaming destinations. You can receive a Caesars Status Match to Diamond From Other Casinos. The Covid Pandemic has had both positive and negative affects on customer loyalty and travel rewards especially when it comes to loyalty program elite status. Generally, Casino status matching starts with a hotel loyalty match promotion (like this one covered by Travel Fanboy) whereby Wyndham Diamond status is earned through matching an existing elite status with a different hotel chain. Unfortunately, Wyndham has discontinued it's status match promotion until further notice, so the typical path to casino status is no longer available. On the other hand, it seems that nearly every casino program is offering Status Matches to elite members of competing casinos. Even more exciting than that is the freebies that come along with many casino match promotions. UPDATE: Mlife Status Match is now available through the end of 2020. 

2020 Caesars Rewards Guide (Plus Earning and Redeeming Tier Credits, Rewards Credits and Benefits)

The key here is to earn casino status but without burning any major match opportunities. Starting out in Atlantic City- which is highly recommended since Ocean is an excellent place to start without wasting any of free night and or play offers. (I'm also not entirely convinced it'll be open next year.)

How to Earn Casino Status

Caesars Rewards Credit Card: Platinum

Wyndham Rewards Wyndham Rewards Visa Card with Annual Fee : Platinum

World of Hyatt Credit Card: Discoverist Status

Mlife Credit Card: Pearl Status

Royal Caribbean Cruise Crown & Anchor members receive a complimentary tier match into M life Rewards

Honorable Mention: Founderscard Offers Caesars Diamond (UPDATE: FoundersCard Renews Caesars Rewards Diamond Benefit Through 2021)
