For me, these two benefits are the most important benefits a casino can offer. Skipping to the front of the line at a Caesars-owned sportsbook could mean the difference between booking a bet or missing out on some action, especially during busy times like March Madness or Super Bowl Sunday.
The Diamond Lounges in Vegas aren't much to write home about, but some of the regional lounges like in New Orleans are much nicer and offer a more attractive spread than just chicken wings.
One benefit not previously mentioned is that Diamond players are entitled to two free Vegas show tickets a month.
if I make diamond in jan 2015, the tier status wont expire till march 2017?
and when do the bonus points show up in your acct? next day? next business day? or..?
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.
you mean their email clock is 4am-4am?
their tier points clock is still 6am - 5:59am?
hm.. what time zone? or is it local time of the casino you're at?
If you get Diamond Jan 1 2015 it's good through March 31 2016. Haven't seen it go two years.
Their tier clock is 6-5:59 am. Not sure what their bonus clock is. However, if you know you made the tier if you include the bonus points, you can go to the TR desk in the casino and they will give you the tier card. Did that once at Bally's, once at Paris in April as I went from Gold to Diamond. They can see it in your play and give it right then.
Babs, Diamond is good for the following year after it is earned, plus a 3 month bonus. So yes, if someone earns it today, they will have it the rest of 2015 and then get the benefit for 2016 plus the 3 months in 17. No different than earning it a little at a time all year long, just hitting it in December and then you would be Diamond for 16, plus the 3 months.
