My Las Vegas Casino Status Matches: Caesars Diamond > Wynn Platinum > Fontainebleau Gold > MGM Gold > Unity by Hard Rock Icon

Good evening everyone, I hope you had a great Memorial Day Weekend.  Over the weekend, Laura and I stayed at the Paris Las Vegas, I completed a few casino status matches, we had some nice brunches and dinners, and we saw 2 Cirque Du Soleil shows.  I will write more about our time in Las Vegas in a future post, but first, let me get this post out since it is time sensitive.  I carefully read and followed Nick’s post (Planning an epic status match run in Las Vegas) and this is what we did:

1: Caesars Rewards Diamond

As a reminder, I originally matched my Wyndham Rewards Diamond to Caesars Rewards Diamond thanks to having the Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card ($95 annual fee).  I stopped by the Caesars Rewards desk inside the Paris Las Vegas casino and picked up my new Caesars Rewards Diamond card.  My previous card expired 01/2024.

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your week is going well.  I just downloaded my recent Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card statement and noticed that there is an upcoming change to one of the card benefits:

“Effective July 1, 2024, Cellular Wireless Telephone Protection will be removed. For details about your individual benefits, please see the Benefits section of the customer website at Wyndhambusinesscard.com.”

I was not even aware of this benefit, but wanted to do some digging to learn more.

My Overly Ambitious 2024 Airline, Hotel & Credit Card Predictions

Good morning everyone, I hope your holiday season is going well.  Yesterday, I wrote The Results Are In! My Wild & Crazy 2023 Airline, Hotel & Credit Card Predictions.  In that post, I shared how my 2023 predictions did (spoiler: not great).  But I am not deterred because 2024 is a new year and I have several new predictions that are surely to come true.  Without further ado, here are my predictions for 2024:

My 2024 Airline Predictions

  • Alaska Airlines or Southwest Airlines will introduce a “family pooling” benefit for miles or travel credit.
  • American Airlines will allow Web Special awards to be changed online (currently, they can only be cancelled).
  • British Airways will add another airline (besides Finnair) to the Avios family.
  • Delta will change their 15% SkyMiles discount for Delta credit cards holders.
  • United will allow you to combine multiple travel bank funds and future flight credits for the same reservation.
