I spent this past weekend in Atlantic City, one of my guilty pleasures, because I had an offer for two free nights at the Borgata, which is now part of M Life.
If you have Hyatt Explorist or Globalist status, you can instantly status match to M Life Gold, which came in handy for me in many ways this weekend.
Not too long ago, I blogged about a way to get a free night at the brand new Hard Rock Atlantic City that’s opening this summer. M Life Gold and Total Rewards Diamond members are entitled to one free night (no restrictions).
I’m also extremely excited about the grand re-opening of the former Revel, which will be renamed as the Ocean Resort, a Hyatt Unbound collection hotel. I hope there will be tier-matching and complimentary free night opportunities at this new property, too.
After following this Reddit thread that discusses an instant status match offer from M Life Gold or higher into Total Rewards Diamond status that seems to be working in Atlantic City, I decided to take a ride over to Harrah’s casino to get matched.
I was able to get instantly matched in minutes by visiting the Total Rewards desk, showing my valid M Life tier card, and verifying that I hadn’t taken advantage of a status match previously.
Included with my match was a complimentary night room voucher valid at Total Rewards properties.
Some benefits of Total Rewards Diamond status I’m especially excited about include:
- Tier Status match with Wyndham Rewards (Diamond)
- Complimentary stay at Atlantis, Paradise Island in The Bahamas
- Free and/or discounted hotel stays
- No resort fees on any hotel stay
- $100 Celebration Dinner
- Two Free Show Tickets Per Calendar Month in Vegas
- No Parking Fees
- Paid access to Diamond Lounges
I’m glad I took a ride over to Harrah’s during my stay to match my M Life Gold to Total Rewards Diamond. Having another top-tier status in another program is good leverage for others, and the benefits are generous and worthwhile.
Being able to save on hefty resort fees in Vegas or other casino properties is HUGE and gaining top-tier reciprocal Diamond status with Wyndham Rewards is a nice perk as well.
If you’re into miles and points and want to get your toes wet in casino loyalty (or vice versa) for more deals and strategies like this, there’s still time to come join me in Vegas in a couple of weeks at ZorkFest.
ZorkFest 2018 Las Vegas takes place at TI, Treasure Island Las Vegas May 25th to 27th, 2018. The weekend starts with a cocktail reception on Friday evening May 25th at 6pm. All conference sessions start on Saturday.
Not only will ZorkFest be a fun weekend filled with mingling and socializing with like-minded travelers, it’s a one-day conference featuring travel and casino loyalty sessions. You can use code zorkangelina for an additional $10 off registration.
Have you taken advantage of the in-person Total Rewards status match?
