    In March I used my CET diamond status to match to Fontainebleu silver.
    This weekend I will be in Vegas and plan to match my CET diamond at the Wynn to their platinum status. I see that Fontainebleu matches Wynn platinum to their Gold status.
    If I go back to Fontainebleu and flash the Wynn platimum card, any chance they will match to gold?
    I expect they won't, but I am gonna try it any way.

    Based on this report, I highly doubt it.

    Here is what the T & C say.

    5. Members may request only one Tier Upgrade during the Promotional Period subject to these Promotion Rules.

    FB seems to think their "$15 and $15" promo is some generous, amazing gift.

    while im not a fan of the owners at all, "$15 and $15" is more than what other have given when I got a card, as a match or as a new member getting a card. Caesars I got a T-shirt, MGM nothing, golden nugget nothing, circa nothing, boyd nothing, Hardrock nothing, ellis island nothing, Penn play $150 and get $150 a month later, sahara spin to win up to $1000, got $20 free play.

    Agreed—$15 and $15 is more than anyone else is offering.

    I'm also curious if the OP will be able to status match twice. The T&C quoted state that you cannot participate if you participated in the previous period that ended Feb 6, 2024. But the current promotion period started Feb 7, 2024. The T&C also state - "The Fontainebleau Rewards ’Elevate Your Tier’ Promotion (“Promotion”) is available to new and existing Fontainebleau Rewards Program members (each a “Member”) during the Promotional Period (as defined below)."

    But, embedded in the T&C is "Members may request only one Tier Upgrade during the Promotional Period subject to these Promotion Rules."

    So, it appears that it's a no. But if the OP tries anyway, I'm curious of the outcome. I'm following along.

    It certainly looks like they won't let me match again since I just did it in March. But if I am close to the Fontainbleu this weekend I will go in and give in a shot. I will report back with the results.
    Thank you all for your replies, they were very helpful.

    Sorry, but I was never close so I didn't try it. I will be in Vegas next weekend and if I am in the neighborhood I will give it a shot.
