Editor’s note: Caesars Rewards no longer allows members to match Wyndham status obtained via a match from Caesars to match back to Caesars. See this post for more information.


Several hotel loyalty programs have partnerships with large casino loyalty programs. And one of these partnerships involves Wyndham Rewards and Caesars Rewards.

Through this partnership, you can redeem Wyndham points to book Las Vegas Caesars hotels. You can also transfer points between Wyndham and Caesars. And, if you have Platinum or higher status in either program, you can request a matched status in the other program.

Even if you aren’t big into gaming and don’t visit Las Vegas frequently, you may benefit from matching your Wyndham Rewards status to Caesars. Here’s what you need to know.

Benefits of matching Wyndham status to Caesars Rewards

Wyndham Rewards elite statuses match to Caesars Rewards tiers as follows:

  • Platinum: Caesars Rewards Platinum.
  • Diamond: Caesars Rewards Diamond.

Here’s a look at the perks you can expect from these two Caesars tiers:

Caesars Rewards Platinum perks

Even though Platinum is the lowest elite tier for Caesars Rewards, it carries some useful perks over the entry-level Gold tier, including:

  • Complimentary self-parking (and complimentary valet parking at some destinations).
  • 15% discount at casino gift shops.
  • Complimentary stay at Atlantis in the Bahamas once per benefit year (two to five nights based on when you travel).
  • 10% discount on select Norwegian Cruise Line vacations.

That’s right: Caesars Rewards Platinum members can get up to five nights at Atlantis each year. Sure, you’ll still have to pay resort fees and maid gratuities, and food isn’t cheap. But, it’s worth trying at least once. Personally, I love the water park and marine exhibits throughout the property.

Even if you aren’t interested in traveling to Atlantis, the complimentary self-parking at all Caesars destinations should be useful. Just use your Caesars Rewards card when parking to avoid the fees.

Caesars Rewards Diamond perks

I enjoyed Caesars Rewards Diamond perks for several years when traveling with my husband, but I finally leveraged a status match from MGM Rewards Gold earlier this month to get my own Caesars Diamond status. Caesars Rewards Diamond includes the following perks over the Platinum tier:

  • 15% off the best available rate on hotel stays.
  • No resort fees on hotel stays at Caesars properties.
  • $100 celebration dinner per benefit year at a participating Caesars-owned restaurant.
  • 20% discount at casino gift shops.
  • Priority lines at hotel check-in, restaurants, casino cages and the Caesars Rewards Center.
  • Complimentary valet parking.
  • Complimentary stay at Atlantis in the Bahamas once per benefit year (two to five nights based on when you travel).
  • 20% discount on select Norwegian Cruise Line vacations.

We’ve taken two trips to Atlantis through this Caesars Diamond perk. Both times, the front desk agent assigned us a high-floor room with an impressive view. The waived resort fees at Caesars destinations can also provide significant value.

How to match Wyndham status to Caesars Rewards

Now that you know the potential perks of Caesars Platinum and Diamond status, here’s how to match your Wyndham Rewards Platinum or Diamond status to Caesars.

Start on Caesars partnership page for Wyndham and scroll down to the “Match Your Status” section. Under “I’m a Wyndham Rewards member” click “Match my status.”

You’ll need to log in to your Caesars account at this point — although you can also create a Caesars account if you don’t already have one. After logging in, enter your Wyndham Rewards number in the appropriate box.

Once you click “Request matching status,” you’ll see the following confirmation message.

Note that the message says the match will take up to seven business days. And, based on my husband’s matching experience earlier this year, the match does indeed take several days — so don’t wait until right before a trip to match your status.

Once you match your Wyndham Platinum or Diamond status to Caesars, you’ll have Caesars Platinum or Diamond status through the next Jan. 31.

How to earn Wyndham elite status

One way to earn Wyndham Rewards elite status is through qualifying nights at Wyndham properties. Specifically, it takes nine nights to earn Wyndham Platinum and 24 nights to earn Wyndham Diamond this year. But you can also snag Wyndham elite status for as long as you’re a cardholder with the following Wyndham credit cards:

If you’re looking to earn Wyndham Diamond status and then match over to Caesars Rewards Diamond, the Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Card could be an excellent option. After all, there are many ways in which you might be eligible for a business card.
