Your Tier Score qualifies you for Tier Status from the day you achieve the status through the remaining portion of current year, all of following year, and 3 months of subsequent year (expires 3/31). During our Tier Renewal period in March, your expiration date will be extended. Once your expiration date has been extended, you can pick up a copy of your Total Rewards card showing your new date by visiting any Total Rewards desk, with valid ID.

TOTAL REWARDS - TIER STATUS - MARCH EXPIRATION


Quote: RS

Don't think that's true.

I earned my Diamond status in 2014 (DIAD) and says it expires March of 2015.

Yes, that is true. Unless there is something different about the DIAD thing than getting it in the "normal" degenerate's way. What "says" to you that "it" expires? Probably you are looking at the date you see printed on your card. But your card is not your tier status. Your tier status remains even if you feed your card to your cat.

The cards always expire every March. Always have. They usually put out a new design for the physical card annually. That has nothing to do with the expiration of your tier status. You just pick up a new card. You do not lose your tier status because of the expiration date on the card. You keep the tier status for the rest of the year in which you 'earned' it, and all of the following year, and the first three months of the year after that. If you become a Diamond today (degenerate!) you will remain Diamond for the remaining 364 days of 2015, and all of 2016, and the first three months of 2017, enjoying crappy chicken wings in Diamond lounges for a total of 819 days in this example, even if you never "earn" another tier credit, ever. Refer to the official voice of Caesar in the link above. But your physical card will expire a couple of times and you'll need to go see a Total Rewards booth critter so they can hand you a new plastic card each calendar year.

People are also often confused by the new Diamond "aspiration levels" (*cough*cough*) within Diamond (there's a ghetto Diamond, a cul-de-sac Diamond, and a big swingin' dork Diamond level within Diamond, determined solely by current year tier credits, all with the same color card). Those mini-distinctions within Diamond do not carry over from year to year like the major Platinum, Diamond, and Seven Stars certified degenerate levels do.
Nevermind.

DD, couldnt have said it better myself. Though the hot sause for the wings isn't as bad as the wings themselves. And those Pretzel Rods are to die for.

I absolutely did not know this, DD, and I really appreciate you pointing it out. I thought the card reflected the tier length, end of story. I will be sure to have them re-issue mine next week. EDIT: looks like I can't re-issue before March, reading more closely. But I'll still be Diamond. Nice.

I'm pretty sure (like about 71.6%) that I've had them re-issue my annual card as early as January. I could be wrong about that, but that's what I believe I remember doing in a couple of past years.

I definitely have milked my own tier level for about the length of time people are discussing here. My calendar year tier credit total reached Diamond for the final time sometime about early to mid-year in 2012 (I was already Diamond from prior years) and shortly after that I decided to fire The Empire for most of my degenerate gambling needs. I accumulated nearly zero additional tier credits that year, and the following year, and the year after, beyond a couple to keep my ridiculously fat Reward Credit balance alive. Besides continuing to use it throughout 2012, I got my card re-issued early in the following year and continued to take advantage of Diamond stuff with it throughout all of 2013, and used it for the final time in March of 2014 to treat some visiting relatives to VIP check-in, extra-spiffy Diamond floor hotel accommodations, comped show tickets, jumping lines by escorting them past the suffering peasant hordes to eat, and other similar big-shot type stuff (to out of towners who are more easily impressed than people on boards like this). I think I logged in with it at a Diamond lounge to enjoy the privilege of gnawing on raw vegetables & stale chips & sup "free" coffee for the final time at the Rio just about 9-1/2 or 10 months ago. That was nearly two years after doing much of anything except spend down my RC balance at their properties, and cycle through some trivial amount of coin for the minimum necessary token 1 TC per 6-months to re-age the RCs so they don't expire.

But as of 3/31/14, I am now an officially worthless space-wasting pond scum Gold card within that system, so Mr. Loveman says you should totally ignore me, and encourage me to p*ss-off and die. Just check the link to their FAQ on it above to confirm that's the deal.

In fairness, the Diamond lounge down at Harrah's Laughlin, of all places, generally had some stuff I'd call actual food. You could make a decent lunch or maybe light dinner out of it. Seems strange to me that they put out more of a spread with a notch better quality than their big brothers to the north, the more spendy Las Vegas properties, but that was my experience.
Nevermind.

This is true. If you earn your points NOW (no idea how you would do that in two days, $100 slot?), you would have Seven Star for all of this calendar year, next calendar year, and 3 months in the calendar year after that.

You can actually just do your play the first three months of the year every two years and keep up Seven Stars status indefinitely.

Yeah, I think it's worth it. Just finished a great Seven Stars trip to New Orleans.

No sweat. In the racebook you could just make one $500,000.00 wager. Or a $2,500,000.00 sports bet. It probably would be hard to play 8,824 hrs of 1/2NL poker.

Yes, considering that there are only 8760 hours in a year.

Oh OK. That's kinda funky. My card expires 3/15 but I "keep" my status until 3/16.

Two years ago I was a 7Stars super duper level and last year all I was is diamond. The benefits for most players are almost identical unless you enjoy taking cruises with a bunch of geriatrics or like yearly trips to places you don't care much about. My experience is that 7stars players lose 10 times what diamond players do. So unless you're Rockerfeller or like to brag about card holdership, go for diamond every year.

I've noticed I get the "bonus points email" after the following day's end.

ie: clock runs 4-4. If I ran a card on Jan 1 (clock ends Jan 2 at 4am), then I'd get the email around Jan 3 at 4am.



called up total rewards.
they said it takes 3 business days for the bonus points to show up
