Changes are coming. Has anyone noticed that you now earn 5-1 TC on purchases? Tier level can now be bought, not earned, like MGM. See all of those people standing in lines for the buffets? They bought their rooms. The current system can't support all of them advancing in tiers at the current levels. My prediction is that Diamond will be 45,000 TC next year. Two nights in a fancy room pretty much gets you diamond this year:

The Sake Suite
NIGHTLY RATES:
FRI07/12/2019 $1,583.75
SAT07/13/2019 $1,347.50
Subtotal: $2,931.25
Resort Fees: Complimentary
Taxes: $392.20
Total: $3,323.45
Earn 14,656 Tier Credits and 3,323 Reward Credits® on this purchase



Can't tier level be bought ALREADY? Isn't that the whole point of DiaD? Besides, $1,500 a night on a hotel room is a pretty big chunk of change you're giving them. That $3,000 for two nights probably outweighs most if not all of the benefits they're giving back with that Diamond card.

I think it's a good move on Caesar's part. Has buying tier levels hurt MGM in any way?

The 5 to 1 has been happening for almost a year now. Has. Nothing to do with the sale.

I noticed it before the sale, but didn't realize how long its been going on. I didn't pay for anything on my last trip in May, so I didn't see any extra tier. I frequently will pay for a night or two over busy weekends though, so this will benefit me for sure. I still predict 45K TC for Diamond next year though. It's a set up.

Platinum is 200K Tier for MGM. I'm not saying it hurts them, I'm predicting that they're going to raise the levels to even it out.
