I was debating making this post but it's too good not to share. Currently if you're a C&A Diamond or above, there's a backdoor way to get a match to Caesar's rewards diamond status and a way to keep that status indefinitely. The main benefit of having a Caesar's diamond is no resort fees, but there are a lot of other nice perks as well. Personally I think the Caesar's rewards are superior to the MGM rewards. Note that this backdoor does require that you've never had a Caesar's rewards account before and you'll need to make a trip to Vegas (or some state that has an MGM casino) sometime before the end of the year (12/31/2023). First, get the MGM match to Gold tier for C&A diamond and above. Jenna has a great post about how to do it and the benefits. Next, head to Vegas! While there stop by any MGM property and get a physical players card that has your name and status (Gold). Then go to any Caesar's property and stop by their players club and ask for a Diamond tier match from your MGM card. They will verify you've never been a member before and then sign you up and create an account on the spot. You'll also get a little bit of free play and match play for signing up (around $10). Note that your new Caesar's diamond benefits don't start until 7 days after you sign up, so you won't be able to use benefits like the $100 meal credit or waived resort fees until the next visit. If you want to try and keep the status indefinitely past this year there's a little more work and you'll need to keep up with it each year. First, create a Hyatt account if you don't already have one and match your MGM gold status to get Hyatt explorist status. Next create a Wyndham account if you don't already have one and match your new Caesar's diamond status to Wyndham diamond status. Since each status expires at different times each year, you can just keep matching statuses back and forth when one expires. January 1st, Wyndham resets so match back from Caesar's status before the end of the month. February 1st, Caesars resets so match back from Wyndham before the end of the year. Hyatt also resets so match back from MGM before the end of the month. March 1st, MGM resets so match back from Hyatt (or call in for C&A match again) before the end of year. I can personally vouch that this method works as I performed it myself this past week while in Vegas. I can already see several comp rooms available at several properties available to me throughout the year (non-weekends of course) on the Caesar's rewards app and it's a true full comp as the resort fees are waived. I only played the new sign up match-play while I was there so I'm not receiving any benefits based on gaming (I only have 19 tier points out of 15,000 needed for true diamond status). I have reminders set for the beginning of Jan, Feb, and March to try and keep the status match gravy train going!
