If you’re involved in the Status Match Merry Go Round, one of the biggest developments in the last year was the Tier Match program at Ocean Casino Resort that offered two free nights at Wynn in Las Vegas and a free cruise on MSC. (Read the Merry Go Round page for details on how that match works as you do need Hard Rock Rock Royalty to do it).
I discovered this last year at the end of August and I think it’s safe to say hundreds if not thousands of MilesTalkers did the match since then.
In the last few months I got many questions about timing. Since the program year ended June 2022, we had no idea if if would continue for the 2022-2023 program year. My status granted in September, for instance, expired yesterday. People wanted to know if they should match in June, for example, and I had no idea if the match would only be valid for a month or 13 months.
Happily, a reader already wrote in today and it’s good news. Reader Jake C. let me know that he matched yesterday and picked up his card today. His Prime card is good through next June 30th.
He also sent me all the collateral and it’s identical to last year. You can do the match if you are a new player at Ocean or if you have been inactive for 12 months.
So it’s important to note that if you matched November 15th, 2021, you both have to wait until November 16, 2022 and must not have played at Ocean the entire year. If you stopped in to gamble even once, you have to wait 12 months from that date.
Since I matched August 31st, I plan to go in early September or October to re-match. That will give me time to use the two free nights at Wynn Las Vegas in both 2022 and 2023. I’ll probably only take one cruise….
Here are all the flyers Jake collected for us:
As I mentioned, the collateral all looks identical to last year so if you did this last year, you should be able to do it again 366 days from your last visit to Ocean and the benefits will be the same.
Again, first re-read the Tier Match program at Ocean Casino Resort and then the details on getting Two Free Nights Wynn in Las Vegas and a free cruise on MSC.
You also get a free two night stay at Ocean with your match, valid Sunday – Friday, but you have to call to book and can’t use it until 72 hours after the upgrade.
(Tip: You can convert Capital One Miles into Wyndham Points which can then be transferred to Caesars Rewards)
