    I found a "back door" into TR Diamond through multiple status matches. I haven't yet requested the final match to Diamond because I read somewhere that the celebration dinner resets in February - can anyone confirm this? I won't be in Vegas until mid-February, so if that's the case, does it make sense to wait until after February 1st to do that final match to TR Diamond? Thanks.

    in general, yes. I would wait either way.

    Maybe a NFL betting weekend? Or ping pong betting?

    Points reset on Jan 1 but the card expiration is 1/31. That is if you get diamond or 7* (for the first time) in the last few days of the calendar year you have the next month to use the offers that are associated with this level. You build your point between 1/1-12/31....hope that helps.

    My guess is through Wyndham as I know another poster on here did the same "trick"

    Yes. Wyndham will match just about any hotel's elevated status.

    Can you give specifics on what levels you need to do this match. I am Diamond from gambling but would also like my wife to be. We are Marriott silver but used to be gold and might get back there. My sister is also a Wyndham time-share person and she keeps telling me that they have more Wyndham points than they can use. Maybe she could take advantage of this. What are the levels at Wyndham and what does it take to match to Diamond with CET?

    I'd also be interested in hearing about the route using a match to Wyndam - my hubby has an IHG gold elite card if that would help with anything.

    OK - I just went to the Wyndham rewards website and quickly found the answer to my question. They have Platinum and Diamond levels to so they crossmatch at the same levels with CET. Marriott Gold matches to Wyndham Diamond and Marriott Silver matches to Wyndham Platinum. Doesn't help us with CET as my wife is already Platinum - but if we bumped up to Marriott Gold it would I guess. Problem is we are traveling to other places less than we used to so probably would take more effort to make that happen than it is worth for us. But might be helpful to others.

    It is easy to find this on the Wyndham website. IHG Gold Elite would match to Wyndham Platinum - which would then match to CET Platinum. CET Platinum is not worth much - but that is what you can get at the current level it looks like.

    If you were to match diamond now, I believe you would get the status until Jan 31, 2020 regardless, no?

    If you earned diamond from gambling now, that would be true.

    If you match to diamond now, that may be true, but would depend of the terms of the specific match program.

    My question was more about the celebration dinner. I'm trying to be a bit vague on the tier match path here as I don't want any bots or deal sites picking it up and ruining it if/when people start doing it in mass. If anyone would like specifics as to the route I took, feel free to message me.

    I went to match Diamond from CET TO Wyndham & received the following message: Something's not right - please try again later. Possibly because I did this match a couple years ago when they first started the CET/Wyndham affiliation? They pushed it out pretty heavily via email at that time & I believe the match was good for a year. Since I wasn't staying much at Wyndham I didn't bother to try to rematch (pretty much a Marriott girl when traveling). I figured I'd try Marriott match to Wyndham, however they require you to upload a pic of your card - heck I never use the card, don't even know where it is lol!

    @jgates8 , That happened to me a couple of times when I did it the last 2-3 years. There seems to be issues with the tier match link/page sometimes. I'd say give it a try again. As long as you have your CET diamond, you can get matched to Wyndham again and again. I've been doing it for the last 3 years. I just match it again beginning of the new year after it expires. Give it a shot again
