Caesars as a company tends to move at a glacial place. Back in February, the standard Wyndham Merry Go Round steps were available as normal, but unusually it was taking players like myself weeks without any notifications before seeing an update.
Around the same time many players saw their status match go through, an update was made to the Caesars Rewards website where you go to match stating that if you hadn’t earned your status from Wyndham normally, vs. a match from Caesars or some other source, you would not be eligible to match to Caesars Rewards.
A few days later, many players (but not all) saw their status matches revoked. I was one of them. (In a weird loophole, I had status matched from Caesars Rewards proper to Tropicana Laughlin, which is still running on a separate system. They only revoked my main status at Caesars Rewards, so I was able to match back from Laughlin to Caesars Rewards.)
It’s now mid-April, and I guess enough people complained about the order of events, because Caesars Rewards has opted to reverse course, at least for some in 2022, and honor the status matches previously processed. In an email, they said:
After re-reviewing your original Tier match request and your account, we are postponing enforcement of the exclusion described above for your account until our next program year. We have upgraded your Tier Status to the level it was before the downgrade, and this Tier will remain in place until January 31, 2023.
The wording indicates this may not be a global thing, and they decided to grant certain accounts their status back, but not all were revoked to begin with either. But now at least some will get Diamond back for another year, giving players time to earn it outright.
One of the easiest ways is to do Diamond in a Day (or two), or take advantage of some of the tier credit multipliers offered throughout the year.
