Tier Matching to Palms in Las Vegas

Reader Peter B. sent in a great tip for those in Vegas looking to take advantage of tier matching at the newly reopened Palms Las Vegas. I’ll soon add this to the official MilesTalk Status Match Merry Go Round post.

I’m not there to go through the steps myself but they all make sense.

As Peter says:

Palms comps the resort fee for Amber and Diamond level, but they don’t match Amber with MGM Gold or Caesars Diamond directly.

However, he points out a work around:

1) If you don’t have it yet get MGM Gold from match with Caesars Diamond (remember that MGM Status Matches are still wide open).

2) Head to Resorts World which matches to A-Lister from MGM Gold

3) You can then head to Palms where you’ll be granted Amber status using the match from Resorts World A-Lister.

This gives you free parking and and a resort fee waiver.

  1. I am at the Palms Las Vegas now. They do not match tier for tier as I heard. They have a list and bump you down according to that. I have a top tier Westgate Diamond card and only got an Emerald card. When I questioned it they showed me a laminated page showing that 90% of the Las Vegas Loyalty card will be bumped down to a much lower tier. Not to happy about that.

  2. I’m a diamond plus with CET and they just gave me the Amber status match at the Palms. Anyone know what kind of discounts they give for the theater?

  3. How do they check your Resorts World tier status at Palms? My RW Genting rewards card is just the generic red one, despite being A-Lister. Do they just take your word for it?

    • Update: I had to show them the RW app which showed my status as A-Lister.

      One useful bonus perk is that Emerald and above (including Amber) at Palms includes free access (no points or comps needed!) to the Club Serrano VIP lounge, which includes free snacks and drinks (similar to Caesars Laurel Lounge when it existed). Unfortunately, it seems like this status match is for first-time new signups only, so likely no rematching next year.

  4. I saw the tier and offer match webpage for Yaamava in California, so we made the drive there to check it out. What a waste of time. It was a complete bait and switch. I even called beforehand and confirmed that if I show my MGM offers on my phone, that they will match it. Yes, confirmed. I’m MGM Platinum. The rewards person called the manager, and he of course said they couldn’t match my offers. He claimed that they were pre-conditioned offers, or something like that, and that they couldn’t match them. It’s the ONLY way they make offers. Complete BS. Don’t believe it, even if they confirm on the phone. They lie to get you out there and hope you just dump a bunch of money. For MGM Platinum, they matched Amber, which gets me what? Free parking? …which was already free, ha. Stay away from Yaamava. Not like Vegas at all, and the machines are super tight. I stayed a bit because we were with other people, and I didn’t see one hand pay, or even a bonus payout of more than $300. I played a $3.75/spin carnival game, hit the bonus, and I got paid $0.50 for one line hit. So hilarious. There are no regulations on payouts. I just saw hundreds of people pumping money into slots – these are just average, everyday Angelenos – and these people are robbing them.
