I originally applied for a Wyndham status match on 10/10/18 and was matched to diamond on 10/15/18.
Total Rewards benefits can be found here. Those include free hotel stays in Total Rewards properties, comped valet parking in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, waived resort fees for diamond members, and more. You can search for free nights in Atlantic City and Las Vegas when logged in as a Total Rewards elite member.
Additionally, Platinum members get a free 3 night stay in the Atlantis Paradise Island Bahamas Beach Towers. Diamond members get a free 4 night stay in the Atlantis Paradise Island Bahamas Beach Towers during peak season or a free 4 night stay in the Atlantis Paradise Island Bahamas Royal Towers during off-peak times. You can call 800-752-9711 to book your free stay.
My Wyndham status was downgraded back to Blue after 90 days, but my Total Rewards Diamond status is valid through 1/31/19. I went to match my Total Rewards Diamond status back to Wyndham and was upgraded from Blue back to Diamond! It doesn’t state how long the Diamond status will last for, but if it makes it to 2/1/19 I should be able to match it back to Total Rewards Diamond after that expires on 1/31/19…
Have you been able to take advantage of free nights with your Total Rewards status?
