When I received the email notification from Caesars Rewards, my heart dropped for a second. Was this the end of one of my favorite travel perk of all time? I carefully read through the email and to my delight found that the status match marry-go-round will live on. Find out more about how Caesars Rewards Extends Status & More below!

Status Extension

All Caesars Rewards members will automatically have their Elite Status extended through January 31st, 2022. Typically, the status ends on January 31st of every year, so they only moved it back a year. This is the best case scenario as if they moved the calendar days around it could have had implications on the status match.

Easier to Earn Status in 2021

Caesars Rewards has lowered the thresholds required in order to earn status in 2021.

  • Platinum: Now 4,000 Tier Credits (was 5,000 Tier Credits)
  • Diamond: Now 12,000 Tier Credits (was 15,000 Tier Credits)
  • Diamond Plus: Now 20,000 Tier Credits (was 25,000 Tier Credits)
  • Diamond Elite: Now 60,000 Tier Credits (was 75,000 Tier Credits)
  • Seven Stars®: Now 125,000 Tier Credits (was 150,000 Tier Credits)

Rewards Credits Expiration

If you don’t already know, instead of points, Caesar’s rewards members earn credits. These credits can be earned from gambling in Caesar’s casino, making purchases at stores and restaurants in a Casino Partner, spending money on the co-branded credit card, or taking surveys on their website. Credits can be used like cash, where 1,000 Rewards Credits equals $10. For Diamond members and above, this is the price required to enter a casino lounge where you can find free food and drinks. Reward Credits will NOT expire for six months of inactivity until September 1, 2020, at the earliest.

Status Match Refresher

One of my favorite Travel Hacks which results in some pretty great perks each year will continue on! Basically, by matching hotel status from various credit cards, you can earn elite status with Caesars Rewards. Why is it worth it to jump through the status match hoops?

Basic Breakdown

I’m really excited to get back to Las Vegas and use my $100 Dinner Voucher. The plan prior to the Coronavirus was to use it when the Buffalo Bills play the Las Vegas Raiders during the 2020 NFL Season. I’m hoping that I will still be able to take advantage of that promotion and attend that game next Fall. Especially since I’ve already been accumulating points & miles to use towards a Free flight and Hotel for the Bills Vegas Game!

Were you relived as I was when you seen that the Status Match Merry-Go-Round will live on? I’d love to hear your reaction down in the comments below or over in the 4,000 + Member Basic Travel Facebook Group!
