Round and round it goes…. (although possibly with some changes – I’ll discuss in this post)
Today on the Status Match Merry Go Round™, we have two moves to make.
In this article
Step One: Wyndham to Caesars
First, your Caesars Diamond was not extended.
So, since you made sure your Wyndham was still Diamond in January, this is no problem – as long as you have a Wyndham Business Earner credit card which confers “earned” Wyndham Diamond status.
Now, head to this page and match back from your Wyndham Diamond to Caesars Diamond. Hit that button on the right as indicated below.
That’s all there. Give it a week or two to update.
Step Two: Hyatt to MGM
If you are like me, your MGM Gold went down to Pearl today. That just won’t do 😉
So head to this page at Hyatt and click “Learn More” as indicated below.
Then, on the next page, click Opt-In and then login to your MGM Rewards account.
Tip: The MGM match should be instant. If it hasn’t updated in a couple of hours, do the exact match again. You will be Gold the second time based on several group mods, members (and my own) experiences.
The Merry Go Round Flow Chart Will Need Updating
Given that you can no longer match anything to MGM Gold, this flowchart falls apart unless you already have MGM Gold OR the “rematch” still works. I’ll keep an eye on it. But we know you can no longer match Caesars Diamond to MGM Gold.
Wording Change on Hyatt Page
This is *most likely* a nothing burger, but late last year, Hyatt changed the wording on their page to say earned status, rather than just Status.
Check out the difference via the Wayback Machine from May to October 2022, but note they also redesigned the page, so the word change could be coincidence.
Now – I have “earned” Hyatt Globalist status. By all accounts I should be matched back sometime soon. But I’m very curious about those that are Hyatt Explorist via the Merry Go Round and didn’t stay / earn 30 nights.
Would you please post your successes / failures below?
