Thread: Get automatic Diamond status at Total Rewards properties through "status" match

  1. #21
    So here's what's really weird about Golden Nugget.

    Apparently not ALL Golden Nugget properties are doing the status match. (You can match to any property for Total Rewards, but the reverse isn't true.)

    So I tried to do it in Vegas, and I was told they aren't doing it.

    However, they conceded that Laughlin (95 miles away, also in Nevada) is doing it, even though it's the same 24K program.

    Then they said they will match status from any 24K property.

    So I replied, "What you're saying to me is that I can drive to Laughlin, match my Seven Stars card there, then drive back here and you'll match me to that one?"

    "Yes, that's what I'm saying," the supervisor told me.

    "Do you understand how ridiculous that sounds? Why not just save me the 190 mile round trip and do it?"

    But she couldn't.

    I gave up, as 3 months of elevated status there isn't worth very much, so I wouldn't drive to Laughlin for it, nor would I put much effort into getting an exception made.

    But how lame is that?

    Pretty ridiculous that a consolidated program has different status matching rules from property to property.

    As nonsensical as Total Rewards is sometimes, at least their program is uniform when it comes to statuses and matching.

    Dan even Total Rewards has some differences.

    When you check into Caesars Palace as a Seven Stars there is a flat $200 hold put on your credit card. But check into the Flamingo across the street and it's $100 per person who has "charging privileges" to your room.

    Now, if you're a "couple" you wouldn't notice the difference. But if you want a third person to be able to charge to your account, it makes a difference at Flamingo.

    That's not what I meant.

    I'm saying that, aside from some local property differences, the base Total Rewards benefits are uniform among the properties. You will never have a situation with Total Rewards where you can do a status match in Las Vegas but you can't do it in Laughlin, or vice-versa.

    I was Diamond for over 10 years. They stopped almost all their offers, so I quit playing as much- so much I was lowered to Platinum. Marguarittaville was the shocker- lowered me to Islander from top level. Now here's the kicker- I still get dining at M-ville and 1 ever so often from Caesar's. M-ville sent me $100 free play for my birthday while Caesar's sent me a FREE DRINK offer! I don't even try to improve at Caesars . Diamond means nothing to me.

    Sounds to me like a ploy to get people to go to Laughlin. It has been a long time since I was at the GN in Laughlin but they had some FP games there like the one where you get bonus pays for 4 K,Q and Js. You could get some value out of Laughlin still. Being Red Card at Aquarius has some value. They have a FP progressive DB bank. The Blazing Sevens are playable around 1500. My problem was I got tired of driving down there for offers and tournaments. That tournament line bothers me.

    You're talking about Margaritaville Louisiana, right?

    Which property from Caesars sent you a free drink?

    Yes- Louisiana. Horseshoe, Bossier sent the free drink offer. With my now limited amount of play, $50 would have been thoughtful. It's just that I've been playing for over 10 years at Horseshoe and only a couple at M-ville. Maybe familiarity DOES breed contempt.

    Whenever I go to a new casino I have a habit of asking if they will match the status of other casinos. Only one casino has ever matched my Seven Stars at Caesars -- and that was the Pauma casino in San Diego County. It matched my Seven Stars with their highest level but only for four months.

    Recently I signed up for players cards at Sams Town and Arizona Charlies and the Fortune Casino in Vegas and none would match a Seven Stars or even offer an upgrade. I even asked at the various bars in Vegas that are members of a multi-bar loyalty card system and the answer was also "no."

    Perhaps this move by Caesars will open the door with other casino companies?
    Yes Alan,

    And just however did you find out about Pauma's match offer and how they also matched your freeplay?
