Wyndham Rewards Now Offering Status Match Up To Diamond Status

Wyndham Rewards is offering people the option to match their status from other hotel programs to their Platinum and Diamond status levels. The status match lasts for 90 days, with the status being extended if you meet certain stay requirements.

Wyndham Status Match

The Deal

Key Terms

  • Proof of Hotel Loyalty Program status required.
  • Upon Wyndham Rewards’ verification of an Applicant’s Hotel Loyalty Program status information, such Applicant will receive the applicable Equivalent Member Level. Member should expect to receive such validation via email between 5-7 days from submission of his/her Status Match Request Form.
  • Status match lasts for 90 days. After that, status can be extended:
    • Platinum – Stay 7 nights in 90 days to keep Platinum.
    • Diamond – Stay 14 nights in 90 days to keep Diamond.

Quick Thoughts

Wyndham Rewards Platinum status isn’t particularly exciting given that you can earn that status from their credit card (albeit with a $75 annual fee).

Diamond status on the other hand is much more enticing, mainly due to the fact you can use that to match to Total Rewards Diamond status. Diamond status with Total Rewards waives resort fees, offers $100 towards a Celebration Dinner, Diamond Lounge access, a complimentary stay at Atlantis, Paradise Island in The Bahamas and more.

Even better, you don’t even have to have top tier status with other hotel programs in order to match to Wyndham Rewards Diamond status. If you have another hotel’s credit card (or an Amex Platinum card), there’s a good chance you can match to Diamond status:

  • Wyndham Rewards Diamond status – match from:
    • Marriott Rewards:
      • Gold
      • Platinum
      • Platinum Premier
      • Platinum Premier with Ambassador
    • Hilton Honors
      • Gold
      • Diamond
    • Choice Privileges
      • Diamond
    • Best Western
      • Diamond Select
    • World of Hyatt
      • Globalist
    • IHG Rewards Club
      • Platinum
      • Spire
    • Radisson Rewards
      • Gold
      • Platinum
    • Omni Select Guest
      • Black

As you can see, that means if you have an Amex Platinum card (due to SPG Gold>Marriott Gold), one of the Amex Hilton cards with an annual fee, IHG’s card or one of the Radisson Rewards credit cards that comes with Gold status, you’ll be able to match to Wyndham Rewards Diamond status and then the equivalent with Total Rewards.

That’s a very generous offer, especially if you’re then able to stay 14 nights in the following 90 days.

I can’t seem to figure out how to match Wyndham Diamond to my TR account.

Will the match to TR be limited to 90 days as well?

On the Total Rewards site, the link to the complimentary Atlantis stay list Diamond/15,000 tier credits to be eligible for the free stay. Does anyone know if you have to earn those 15,000 credits in addition to the matched Diamond status with Total Rewards to take advantage of the Atlantis stay offer?

How long does this promotion last? I want to wait until February to do the free 4 night Atlantis stay but this is only good for 90 days. What if I match and book the trip for February now? Do I need to still have the status when we complete the stay?

Also: if my wife and I both complete the match, can we sign up for two consecutive free stays, one under each of our names?

Lastly, can we use our Platinum Elite benefits if we book under the free promo?

Wondering the same as well, in addition to Bob’s post above. I have an upcoming LV stay in December so it’d be nice to have TR Platinum and status match to Mlife while I’m there, but the Atlantis benefit is more valuable to me. Does anyone who has matched know if I’d be able to book a ’19 trip or should I just wait until new year to match my TR?
