World of Hyatt Report: Other


From Marriott Rewards Silver Elite
To World of Hyatt Explorist

This is a long one with multiple matches that I will post individually also but I think illustrates what can be done. My original intention was to match Marriott Silver to Hilton Silver. In late April I filled out Hilton's form at statusmatch.hiltonhonors.com with proof of Marriot Silver Status even though the site says it's only for Gold and Diamond. I got an email saying they weren't matching silver status but they offered me a challenge for gold--5 stays or 10 nights within 90 days to get Hilton Gold through March 2020. By early June I had completed 10 nights. I saw La Quinta was status matching so I emailed at ccservicecenter@laquinta.com and requested a match with Hilton Gold. They took almost a month (June 8 to July 3) to respond but finally gave me Elite (their highest status.) I immediately connected my LQ account to Wyndham rewards at www.wyndhamhotels.com/wyndham-rewards/laquinta-returns/status-match and was given Wyndham Platinum status (make sure your email on file is the same for both accounts.) I then signed up for Total Rewards and got matched to Total Rewards Platinum from Wyndham Platinum at www.caesars.com/total-rewards/tr-partners/wyndham_resorts which took about a week to process. Last week I was in Las Vegas and went into MGM Grand to sign up for Mlife Rewards. I asked if they status match with Total Rewards. They asked what status I had and I said Platinum. They had me go see one of the hosts who looked at my TR card, picked up the phone, said some random numbers and muttered "yeah, Gold." He hung up and said for me to go back to the regular Mlife desk. A minute later they came back with my MLife Gold Card. After verifying my online Mlife account said Gold also, I went to www.mgmresorts.com/en/mlife-rewards-program/preferred-partners/hyatt-hotels.html where I connected my Mlife account to my World of Hyatt account and was automatically upgraded to Hyatt Explorist until Feb 29, 2020. (PS I tried to then match Mlife Gold to TR Diamond at both Planet Hollywood and Paris even though the offer is supposed to be only in Atlantic City since there were a few isolated reports of it working in Vegas but it didn't work for me. :/ )
