Mlife announced last month that they would extend status through Dec 31, 2021 and adjust the program year to align with a calendar year, igniting some speculation that when Caesars finally did their extension, they might also realign the calendar year, putting a possible wrench in the Status Match Merry Go Round.

No Effect on the Status Match Merry Go Round

While the primary on-ramp to the Merry Go Round, Wyndham, remains paused, this is great news. It means that Caesars’ calendar year will remain one month off from both Wyndham and Mlife, keeping the Merry Go Round alive for now….

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

Here’s a reminder of how that flow works (when Wyndham is matching again):

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
