Match Caesars Rewards to Wyndham

How To Status Match Caesars Rewards to Wyndham Diamond

I wanted to discuss how to status match Caesars Rewards to Wyndham Diamond status and why you should. Caesars Rewards and Wyndham have had a partnership for a few years now and if you play it right it can be very lucrative. How does free shows, a $100 dinner, free parking & skipping the lines at the casino sound to you?  Pretty great right! Those are just some of the reasons why you should status match Caesars Rewards to Wyndham Diamond status and vice versa.

Update: this is the last week to get this done.  If you plan to match back to Caesars Diamond on February 1st be sure to get this done this week!

The Status Match Program Carry Over

You may be wondering why we need to do this match from Caesars Rewards to Wyndham in January.  Well there is an interesting quirk between the two programs.  See Wyndham status ends on January 1st every year, like most programs but Caesars Rewards goes until January 31st.

What does this mean?  Well hopefully you were following along with us last year and you did all of this status matching back and forth last year.  That would mean you currently have blue status with Wyndham but still have Diamond status with Caesars.  That means you should now match your Caesars Diamond back to Wyndham Diamond.  That will give you Wyndham status through 12/31/2020.  Then once your Caesars Diamond status drops off on 2/1/2020 you can match your newly minted Wyndham Diamond status to Caesars Diamond and get another year of free shows and a $100 celebration dinner.

What if you weren’t around last year and have no status with either?  Don’t worry we will get to you in a minute 😉.

How To Status Match Caesars Rewards to Wyndham Diamond

To status match from Caesars Rewards to Wyndham go to this website.

  • Select I am a Caesars Rewards member
  • You will be directed to log into your Wyndham account
  • You will be asked for your Caesars Rewards number and some other personal info
  • Select match my status

Then you should see your updated status.  I matched Caesars Diamond to Wyndham Diamond.  I don’t care about Wyndham status much, since I think they are crooks, but I want to match it back to Caesars Rewards status for sure. Especially with our upcoming New Orleans meet up and them having a Caesars Rewards casino there with a steakhouse that works for the $100 free dinner!

What If I Have No Status With Either Program Right Now?

What if you were asleep at the wheel last year or are new to Miles to Memories? Well I welcome you and don’t worry we can still get you that valuable Caesars Rewards status!  All we need to do is get you Wyndham Diamond status first, which is easier than you think, and then match that to Caesars Rewards.

You can status match from other hotel programs to Wyndham Diamond fairly easily. Here is a chart of all of the options:

The easiest status to get for most of us Hilton Honors Gold or Diamond status or the IHG Platinum status.  All of these come as a perk of a credit card:

Once you have secured one of the status levels listed above you can match it to Wyndham Diamond status.  You can then match your Wyndham Diamond status to Caesars Rewards Diamond status.

Conclusion

If you have Caesars Rewards status then be sure to play the match game this month to keep it going. If you already have Wyndham status via their credit card or through stays then you can match it starting in February. Or you can status match from another hotel loyalty program to Wyndham Diamond status.  There are many ways to get this done so be sure to take advantage of it.

  1. Anyone got theirs to go through yet? I did this for myself and some friends last year and everything looked good for this year. Only one of them has completed the final stage though and is a Diamond at Caesars. The others did say it would take 7 days but so did that one. They may have just got a lot of requests all at the same time. Just wish it was automatic like going from Caesars to Wyndham. Oh well. Just seeing what everyone is is experiencing.

    • I think most people that did it on Feb 1 have Diamond status now but people that did it after that are still waiting. They do seem to be backlogged some.

  2. I cannot get the match from Wyndham to Caesars to go through. Have tried multiple times online. Have called; been given Rewards Center phone numbers(but no one answers).
    Now what? I just emailed Caesars…

  3. It looks like with Wyndham it’s a status challenge, rather than a match. Did they recently change the terms?

    • Well actually match and then challenge. But I guess it’s a moot point since the goal is to match to Caesars Rewards and not to retain Wyndham status. Carry on 🙂

          • 90 days, unless you meet the requirements of the challenge. If so, then I’d assume this applies: “With limited exceptions, a Member Level is typically scheduled to expire at the end of the calendar year following the calendar year in which it was obtained.”

          • If it is matched from Caesars it is good till 12/31/2020

            If from matching hotel status then 90 days.

  4. Is there a possibility that one can match status from 2 different hotel status. For example: Marriott Gold to Wyndham and Hilton Diamond to another Wyndham. 

    • I guess I am not entirely following. If you mean to another persons account no the names and everything have to match.

  5. Now that I am matched to Caesars Diamond how do I get the dinner and show tickets? I don’t see anything in the login explaining that part?

    • You go to the Caesars Rewards desk when in Vegas to get the show tickets. For the dinner you need to visit a Caesars Casino and ask them which restaurants on property work for the $100 dinner. It is usually already loaded on your card but it will depend on the casino and they will tell you.

  6. Mark, I did both status matches in November and my Wyndham account shows I’m Diamond until 2/1/2020. My Ceasars account says I’m Diamond until 1/31/2020. If my Ceasars drops on 2/1, will I be able to match back from my Wyndham Diamond on that day, and then rematch from Caesars diamond after Wyndham drops on 2/1? Will it work that fast?

    • You should be able to. I would try matching Caesars to Wyndham now just to see if it extends it past 2/1 for Wyndham

      • I just tried matching my Caesars number to Wyndham and it says “good news, you’re already registered” Any other suggestions? I don’t want to lose both of these on 2/1/2020

        • Do you have status with another hotel property that you could match back to Wyndham if they both drop off like Hilton Gold or Diamond?

          • I have Hilton diamond which I used to get the initial match. I also have Marriott gold. Would I be able to match from Hilton to something else and then back to Wyndham/Caesars?

          • You should be able to just rematch from Hilton Diamond or Marriott Gold if the status does drop off.

  7. Trying to enroll in Ceasars Rewards and I keep getting an error. I got this no multiple browsers and devices. I have contacted Ceasars support and they confirmed I do not have an existing account with them. Anyone else getting this error?

    The information you entered matches an existing Caesars Rewards account. Unfortunately, guests cannot have more than one account.

    If you are already a Caesars Rewards member but forgot your account number, or if you are not yet a member and feel this message is in error, please visit your nearest Caesars Rewards casino*, and a Representative will be happy to assist you.

    *Please note that if you are a member of the Caesars or a state-sponsored self-exclusion program, you are not eligible to participate in Caesars Rewards.

  8. Does anyone know if they match instantly and issue the card on the spot if you do it in-person? I am Wyndham Diamond, and will be checking in to PH on 2/1/20. If I go to the Caesars Rewards desk before I check-in, will they status match and issue the Diamond card on the spot?

    • You have to do the match online and it usually takes a few days to kick in afterwords. If you don’t have status with Caesars right now I would do it now – it should give you status to 1/31/21 since it is a new earn year. If you do have status it will deny the match.

  9. Has anyone matched Wyndham to Caesars for the first time in January 2020? If so, how long does it say you’re Caesars Diamond for? I see lots of questions about this, but no feedback from someone who did the match in Jan 2020.

  10. Mark,
    I just received notification Wyndham matched my Marriott status to Diamond. Given the Caesars year-end is 1/31/20 do you recommend I should hold off on requesting status match to Caesars until 2/1/20. Thanks

    • I disagree with Mark. Why wait? If between now and 2/1/2020 you will visit a Caesars property, or patronize a Caesars partner (e.g., a cruise line) or another casino that will tier match to Caesars, then do not delay matching to the highest possible Caesars status now and reaping all the associated benefits. Then, on 2/1/2020, rinse and repeat.

      • It depends. If you already have Caesars status from last year you can’t match till Feb since it will be denied.

  11. Mark, this has been awesome experience. 2019 was a blast due to this and now I cannot wait for 2020.
    Thank you

  12. Friend with no status, I know booo. I thought there was a way to get La Quinta Return Elite then match that to Wyndham Diamond. Was it Best Western to La Quinta? Any suggestions?

    • Sorry I can’t help more but I don’t know anything about the Best Western status match and what level you get when matching.

  13. Do you have a full list of Caesars Rewards casinos not in Las Vegas whose restaurants work for the $100 free dinner?

    • No I do not unfortunately. You can also call the rewards desk at the casino you are thinking of visiting and they can tell you the options for sure. But a lot of times the restaurants or buffets on site will work.

  14. Thanks for the timely reminder. I earned Caesars Diamond status in 2018 but it’s due to expire at the end of this month.

  15. Which restaurant is the $100 Dining Reward able to be used at in NOLA? I don’t see any on the Celebration Dinner list

    • The celebration dinner list is just for Las Vegas. You can use it at most restaurants at any of the Caesars Casinos as long as the restaurant is owned by them and some that are not I believe. There is a steakhouse at Harrahs New Orleans I have used it at before and I think there is a Oyster place and you may be able to use it at Mannings down the street but I am not sure on that one. Once you get to the casino the rewards desk can tell you your options.

  16. Thank you for the reminder. I just status-matched to Wyndham Diamond (got an instant confirmation) and will status-match back to Total Rewards next month.
    Very useful article – much appreciated.

  17. Why do you think they are crooks? I guess I missed the post(s?) that described some disastrous reservations. Would you give the link to the evidence? Thanks. (I like Wyndham — stayed last week at the Ravel in Queens — gorgeous 15K-point room with a balcony looking out on Manhattan and the 59th St. bridge.)

    • Kerry if you click on the link that is highlighted on that exact phrase it takes you to the post where I discuss my issues with them. That along with changing promo terms on the fly and refusing to pay out agreed upon terms makes them shady in my book.

    • You should because it is a free match and if you wait until after the 31st you miss out on the double dip to match it back to Total Rewards. Which brings you a lot of perks even if you don’t gamble or like Vegas like a free trip to Atlantis etc.

      • So you are saying match wyndham to TR now to have it until end of month….and then match again to have TR thru rest of 2019. Will that work? I only have the wyndham diamond as of now but would like to have it thru 2019 not just end of month. Is it possible to match now to TR and then again on Feb 1….or if I match now will it last thru 2019?

        • I am not sure if you match it now if it will go till Jan 31 2020. I suspect it will but I am unable to try since I already have Diamond till Jan 31, 2019. If you end up giving it a try let us know what happens. After February 1 you will be matched till Jan 31, 2020 as long as it works like it has in previous years.

          • So in the past I could have matched Wyndham in Jan to total rewards…and then match wyndham AGAIN in Feb when new status year begins? Let me know and I will try the match and tell you my Jan results.

          • I am honestly not sure what happens when matching in January. I don’t know if that will cause an issue trying to match in February if it only gives you status until January 31. I can’t say either way. If I had to guess I think matching in January (if you have no TR status) will give you status for the full year but that is just a guess on my part.

  18. Can confirm if you have TR Diamond status now it will not work. Need to wait till it drops on 2/1. Nowhere on the Wyndham site can I find when my Diamond status (through the TR match) expires.

  19. Is there a benefit to matching Wyndham Diamond to TR starting in February rather than right now? I may have jumped the gun as I just put it for a match Wyndham Diamond->TR Diamond. For example, I was looking at the Atlantis deal and I was confused whether or not I have to book my stay prior to Jan 31, 2019

    • If you already have TR status it won’t go through until after the status drops on Feb 1 I believe. But if you don’t have TR status right now then I think it would be fine and you should get it to Jan 31, 2020. Not 100% on that though.

      • I have the same concern: match now and have it only till Jan 31 2019 or do it in February and have it until Jan 31 2020. Can’t find any info about it on TR website. So you think to play safe and wait few weeks?
