Caesars to MLife Match for rooms??

I'm a Caesars/Diamond guy and have long loved their program. In an unexpected twist, my trade association conference is at the Bellagio (MGM property) this fall and I'm wondering about status match to get a cheap/free room at the same place as my conference. Everything online says, "visit the desk for an instant match." That's great, but by then I've already secured a room elsewhere. Is there a way to match BEFORE I get to Vegas and, if so, can I expect a free room matching Caesars Diamond to MLife Gold? At Caesars I can get free (as in really free - no resort fees, etc.) rooms but would rather not take the L O N G walk each morning across the street to my conference. The "discounted" rate through my conference starts at $225/night + taxes/fees so for a 4 night conference I'm looking at $1,000. For that I'll walk across the street but it would sure be nice to stay at Bellagio.

All casino-to-casino matches will always require an in-person match at the rewards program desk.

You're not going to get much from matching to MLife Gold besides the advertised perks. You get a 10% discount off rooms base rate if I recall correctly. Comp rooms are based off play and not status, unless there's some promotion going on or you get matched in with a host, given that you have historical play from the matched property.

If it comes to this, book an Octavius/Augustus tower room and go out the Flamingo Rd. exit, then cross at the traffic light that goes into the Bellagio north entrance to minimize the amount of walking. If mobility is an issue or prefer escalator/elevator then you can still go out that exit but then turn towards LVB for the pedestrian bridge.

If you don't have any play/spend at MLife I doubt simply matching from CET brings any instant free room offers especially these days where rooms in Vegas are $$$$$$$$$$$

Caesars and Bellagio are next door on the same side of LVB, yes you cross 592 ( W Flamingo) but it's only 10 minute walk tops door to door.

Bellagio resort fees are over $50 a night with tax so with room tax you are looking at more like $1100

All matches have to be done in person...........

Status match isn't going to get free rooms - just contact a Bellagio host and get comped or casino rate up front.

Is there actually a pedestrian crossing there? My recollection is no.

Google Maps/Streetview agrees with you -- I don't see a marked pedestrian crosswalk -- but it's definitely do-able. But as I said if there are any mobility concerns etc. or you just don't want to save your gambling for inside the casino you can still exit Caesars on that side and then turn left to access the pedestrian bridge. Have done that a lot with a friend who uses a wheelchair. At least then it reduces how much of the casino/crowd you have to walk through.

With mlife, you really can't rely on the tier match. I am a Caesar's Diamond and Hyatt Globalist, and last week I went to the Player's Desk at the Aria and got my mlife status matched, so I got a gold card. Yet, online, it continued to show as Sapphire. Finally, a day or so, I asked the customer service at mlife when I could expect the gold match to show up (I'm now out of Vegas). They raised my status to Pearl. So, even if you show up and get the match, the system might not show you at the matched level.

My wife and I both matched CET to MLife ( previous Status Pearl) and we both show up as Gold online


I was also able to match our new Mlife Gold status to Hyatt Explorist a few days later which is what we really wanted, MLIFE gold is not much of an upgrade over Pearl as we have the credit card for check in line access.


Did you do the Wynn match while you were in Vegas.............we did and already received 3 night offers at Encore, no resort fees and $200 in free play.....we both played $20 at Wynn that day and had never been there before.

No, I matched my Caesar's Diamond to mlife gold, but no other matches. I did it in person at the Aria, and then I went and played $1k at the Blackjack table (also which did not show up online). No decent offers now that I've been back home for a week.

MLife usually updates their offers on the 1st of every month, so if your stay was in mid-July you should see updated offers on August 1. If the 1st falls on a weekend, the offers are usually updated the following Monday.

I think you missed out not doing the Wynn match, it's far better than MLIFE Gold which basically gives you nothing in Vegas you can't get by simply signing up for the Credit Card.

The Value in the Mlife Gold Match for us was the Hyatt Explorist status.

If you are back in Vegas before 9/1 I suggest taking advantage of the Wynn offer.

All of my play from last trip in June is showing up on my June win/loss statement

I wonder if somehow your mlife # is not correct, have you compered your account # when you log in to the # on your new old card ?

I'm already Hyatt Globalist, so an mlife match doesn't mean much for that. The number on my mlife card and my account are the same, though. I might go back over Labor Day (assuming that the COVID situation there doesn't spiral out of control), so I'll take advantage of the Wynn match if I go. Where can I find the details on that match?

Yeah, my stay was mid-July.

The wynn Match is set to expire 8/31/2021................https://www.wynnlasvegas.com/wynn-rewards/tier-match


If you were already Globalist ( or Explorist) at Hyatt you could have matched that to MLIFE Gold online and saved a trip to the players desk......................https://thepointsguy.com/news/match-...atus-to-mlife/

I won't be in Vegas until late September - is this Wynn matching thing a rare event or do they do it regularly like some of the other casinos?
