There are so many free night and status match opportunities happening in Atlantic City this summer, that it seriously may be worth a trip! Just to recap, here’s everything you need to know in one place:
Borgata – 2 Free Nights
Borgata recently joined M Life, but their booking systems are not yet fully integrated. With that in mind, if you have existing M Life Gold or Platinum status from the Hyatt reciprocal match, you’ll have to go and separately activate your Borgata M Life status.
After doing that, as a M Life Gold member, I saw I had several comped nights available in my account all summer long (even after staying for 2 free nights during Mother’s Day weekend)!
Hard Rock – Up to 2 Free Nights + Tier Match
The much anticipated Hard Rock Atlantic City is opening June 28 and is offering tier matching and up to two free nights (weekends too) if you have M Life or Total Rewards status. If you haven’t taken advantage of this opportunity yet, you can read all of the details here.
Additionally, casino hosts at this property are sending out emails with additional free night and resort credit offers, so keep an eye out on your inbox!
Total Rewards Properties – Free Night Voucher + Status Match
There are several Total Rewards properties in Atlantic City (Harrahs, Caesar’s, Bally’s), and now there’s an in-person opportunity to get matched to Total Rewards Diamonds with M Life Gold or higher status.
When I successfully status matched, I was handed a paper voucher good for a free night at any Total Rewards property (including Las Vegas).
Additionally, Total Rewards Diamond status does come with compelling benefits such as 4 free nights at The Atlantis, monthly show tickets in Las Vegas, and a $100 celebration dining voucher.
Don’t forget that you can instantly match your Total Rewards Diamond status to Wyndham Diamond status too.
Ocean Resort – Hyatt Unbound Collection – Status Match + Up to 2 Free Nights
I also recently learned that the Ocean Resort will be a category 3 property, redeemable for only 12,000 Hyatt points per night, which is fantastic! You can now book free nights at this property on Hyatt.com.
I’m still waiting to hear about details regarding Hyatt elite benefits at this property such as upgrades, the free breakfast benefit, etc.
When the Ocean Resort was formally the Revel, I’ve seen room rates reach $700 on weekends and holidays, so when prices are high, this can be an amazing use of the category 1-4 annual free night certificate from the Hyatt credit card (learn more) or points.
Additionally, be sure to check your junk mail! My husband, who formally gambled at the Revel, received an offer of instant status, two complimentary nights, match play, and many other perks.
This gives me hope that the free nights will also be offered to others during their in-person matching promotion.
As a Jersey girl, Atlantic City has always been a guilty pleasure of mine, so I’m delighted about all of these opportunities to have fun summer nights out on a dime.
Keep in mind that you can double the status and number of free nights this summer if your spouse/friend/significant other also qualifies for the status match and complimentary night opportunities.
