Over the last few months I’ve written several articles that shed light on the many benefits of holding Total Rewards Diamond status and why you should submit a status match.
Even a few of my non-gambler friends were thrilled about the prospect of being able to match their hotel status to Total Rewards Diamond through a matching offer provided by Wyndham Rewards. Mostly due to the fact that they could pick up a free dinner and have 4 nights free at the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas.
As of today, Total Rewards no longer exists. Instead, Caesar Entertainment Corporation has replaced it with one that represents their company name, Caesars Rewards.
New Program, Same Benefits
As I wrote about one of the great things that Caesar’s did with this program was retain all of their benefits. A quick review of the best benefits includes:
- 15% off best available advertised rate on rooms and suites
- No resort fees on any hotel stay
- Complimentary valet & self-parking at many destinations, including Las Vegas and Atlantic City
- $100 Celebration Dinner.
- Complimentary stay at Atlantis, Paradise Island in The Bahamas
- New in 2019: Free Nights in Vegas, Atlantic City and Dubai
Achieving Diamond in Caesar’s Rewards
For those individuals who took advantage of the status match prior to January 1, 2019 their Diamond status expired with the new program roll out on January 31, 2019. For those that applied for a status match after January 1, their status will be good through January 31, 2020. Therefore, those individuals who applied last year and are losing their status will need to rematch their Wyndham status over again to retain their Diamond benefits.
- To cut back on your travel expenses while visiting Caesars properties, use cash back cards like the Chase Freedom or the Capital One Savor Cash Rewards Credit Card to cut back on incidental expenses.
The first step is getting a Wyndham status match, see our previous post on how to do that.
Once that is complete click on this link, which will take you to the status matching page. From there you simply need to complete a few quick steps to match your account. Remember to click the “I am a Wyndham Rewards Member Match My Status” button that is found on the right side of the page. You will then be prompted to log in to your Caesars Rewards account, which the the same as your old Total Rewards account. From there you will be asked to provide your Wyndham Rewards. Input that, hit enter and you will be all set to be a Caesars Rewards Diamond member. Personally, I went through the steps around 8am on February 1st and had my new Caesars Rewards Diamond status in my account by the afternoon.
Mlife Status Match
Also just a reminder for those of you in the Atlantic City area or willing to travel. The Borgata is still offering their promotion to match Caesar’s Rewards Diamond status to Mlife gold. In addition to Mlife Gold, they will give you a free comp night (good on the weekend even), $100 in slot credit, and access to their VIP lounge or buffet. This promotion, combined with Hyatt Explorist status and club access awards, is the reason that I am flying to Atlantic City for a poker weekend in February for 2 nights.
- Use the Chase World of Hyatt Card to earn 40,000 points that can be used for free nights at Mlife properties.
Even though the new Caesar’s program has a new name it is still offering the same great benefits. Therefore, if you are planning on visiting any Caesar’s property in 2019, or want to take a trip to the Bahamas, then now is the time to enroll for Diamond status.
