caesars rewards status extension

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….

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