It’s Time to Tier Match

While tier status has been extended in some casinos, this might be a good time to play the tier status match game. And, while you’re at it, maybe coax some friends and family to take advantage of new member promotions at New England Casinos. Here is a list of Tier Matching Offers in New England’s Casinos and beyond. It’s Time To Tier Match, Everybody.

What Are Tier Matching Promotions

Casinos will try many ways to get you on their property and then other ways to gain your loyalty. Tier Matching does both.

When a company offers a tier match, they offer a status rewards level similar or equal to another property’s group that you may already have. Here is my personal story of how I took advantage of these promotions.

How I Took Advantage of the Tier Matching Game

The months before MGM Springfield opened, Ocean and Hard Rock in Atlantic City opened in March. We had finished achieving Gold at MGM’s Borgata previously, and through FlyBorgata, we had planned another AC junket.

With the MGM Gold, we were able to match Ocean’s top level. In addition, she gave us a free weekend later and VIP lounge access. Then, we walked down the boardwalk to the new Hard Rock AC, where the Taj Mahal used to be. We proceeded to tier match their top-level because we had top-level status at Ocean – another free room offer.

We were eating in the Premier Lounge at Oceans after getting Top Level at Ocean.

Now, back to MGM. Before MGM Springfield opened, they had a pre-opening offer to get your MLife rewards card or possibly Tier match. This event at MassMutual Center enabled MGM staff to increase my status to Platinum, which I still enjoy today.

Knowledge is power, and knowing that these offers were in place gave me top-level status at three casino companies in one month. With MLife, I was able to extend my offers to Las Vegas. Many casinos extend higher status advantages to the rest of their properties across the country. It was a great deal all around for a bit of shopping, timing, and matching.

MGM Springfield – MLife Tier Match Time

Visit the M life Rewards desk for a list of qualifying casinos. This promotion is only offered at MGM Springfield specifically.

Tier matches are a valuable resource when it comes to companies with many casino resorts. For example, MGM has 16 properties that use MLife interchangeably, and that includes Borgata shortly.

Here is the list of MGM tier matches at casinos in New Jersey, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.

Summary – It’s Tier Matching Time

As you can see, the offers are out there. We haven’t even touched the surface of matching casino tier levels with the partner hotels these of casino companies. Of course, some are for new members only, but a year of casino benefits is still better than none, in my opinion. This is especially true if it’s a casino you visit enough to make it worth your while.

If you don’t visit that property often enough, maybe wait. But these offers don’t stick around forever. So I wouldn’t be surprised as the summer casino season rises to a feverish pitch; you might see those offers go by the wayside.

Timing IS everything.
