Fontainebleau Las Vegas status match comes back

by Staff

Last week, The Points Guy announced that Fontainebleau Las Vegas is offering an “Elevate Your Status” match whereby they are matching status from other casino/resorts. When the news first broke, I wasn’t seeing the list of qualifying statuses on the Fontainebleau website, but they now list what will match where and for those with current Hard Rock Rock Royalty / Icon status, it will be worth doing this match if you’ll be in Las Vegas before June 2nd.

The Deal

  • Fontainebleau Las Vegas is offering a status match for members with elite status at competing casino loyalty programs. Now through June 2, 2024 you can match status in-person at Fontainebleau Las Vegas from several competitor programs that will last through 12/31/24

Quick Thoughts

Fontainebleau opened its doors last month and for the first day in business they were matching status for some members, but that died quickly. They are now back with a fully public status match offer.

Hard Rock Atlantic City has long been matching Caesars Diamond or MGM Gold to Hard Rock Rock Icon status (previously called Rock Royalty) and I believe you can do the same at Mirage in Las Vegas. I specifically call out that opportunity for several reasons:

  • Caesars Diamond status is relatively easy to get through their partnership with Wyndham Rewards by matching Wyndham Diamond status to Caesars Diamond status (which is going slowly this year – I don’t think matches have gone through yet since the new program year started on 2/1). You can get Wyndham Diamond status by simply holding the Wyndham Earner Business credit card.
  • Caesars Diamond only matches to Fontainebleau Silver status, whereas Hard Rock Icon status matches to Fontainebleau Gold status.
  • Fontainebleau Gold status comes with a $150 spa credit for one-time use and $150 dining credit for one-time use (see full benefits here). Note that Silver status comes with a $100 dining credit for one-time use, but no spa credit.

The biggest roadblock for some will be that Hard Rock is apparently now treating the Icon match as a once-per-lifetime deal, so if you’ve matched to Icon / Rock Royalty before, you likely won’t be able to do so again.

It is worth noting that the Fontainebleau website lists a number of other programs from which they will match. One of those competing programs is Genting Rewards, the program at Resorts World. When I was there recently, I saw that Genting Rewards was offering a status match (I overheard another customer inquiring about it). At the time, I looked at the benefits of their program and didn’t see anything of value to match for, so I didn’t inquire about where they would match Caesars Diamond / Hard Rock Icon / Ocean Prime / etc (I now regret not asking!). That may be of interest since Genting Monarch matches to Fontainebleau Gold as well — but, again, I don’t know at what level they will match Caesars status at Resorts World.

Finally, it’s worth noting that terms indicate that match processing may take up to 7 days, so this isn’t something you can count on definitively if you’re only visiting Las Vegas for a few days. That said, if you are matched, that matched status is scheduled to run through 12/31/24.

Overall, I think this match will be of high interest to those who can match to Gold status or higher.
