    I would have thought it would have been on the website but with Diamond there's a better shot at a room upgrade. There are also casino-specific Diamond and Seven Star benefits, which unfortunately are better laid out on the sevenstarsinsider website. But if you are Diamond, that typically entitles you to free entry at the Flamingo and Bally's fitness centers and spas (can't speak to Harrah's or Paris) and I believe Rio as well. At Caesars I believe being Diamond gets you comped access to the FITNESS Center at Qua and a reduced rate to the QUA SPA. Beyond the comped rooms this has historically been one of my favorite Diamond benefits.

    The Diamond show benefit isn't listed above but I believe that's really a Vegas benefit though I often get comped tickets to shows as a Diamond member (or based on my play) at CET casinos in AC.

    I find they will usually offer to bump me from Forum to Palace or Augustus at check in. And the free show tix, which I've never taken advantage of yet.

    I'd love to know which "participating restaurants" offer a discount. From another thread, I read that some offer things to Diamonds such as a complimentary appetizer or dessert.

    Most places inside a CET joint in Vegas have a banner strip in the side of the menu where the prices are showing a Total rewards discount.

    When I ate at BurGR in planet ho it was something like Cheese Burger $15.99 TR $14.99 next to that.

    1--NO RESORT FEES
    2--$100 annual diamond dinner
    3--2 free show tickets/month (if your trip is at the end of one month & goes into next month you can get a pair for each month)
    4--diamond check in area/diamond lines for shows & restaurants
    5--diamond lounges--free drinks/munchies every evening plus afternoons on weekends (can be nice if you have been losing all day & just want a drink...)

    Those are my favs

    I know there was a bar at Flamingo that was giving out free drinks daily during a certain time period to diamond cardholders. I can't remember which one and I'm not sure if this is still in effect.

    The circle bar across from check in at the Linq does this, and I've read that there is a bar at cromwell that does this too. They serve as a makeshift diamond lounge, since these are the two CET props in Vegas that don't have a proper DL.

    Not sure about flamingo...

    Thinking that was LInq that gave out drinks at a bar. Flamingo has a Diamond Lounge over by the buffet.

    BLT in Bally's offered us free appetizers (they just showed up at the table, you didn't order them from a menu) and I believe they offered free desert, both of us were stuffed so we had no interest in it.

    Also. Front of line for the shuttle that runs from Bally's, Rio, Harrahs. They always ask for seven stars, then Diamonds

    At Horseshoe Council Bluffs, drinks are free at casino bars for Diamond folks.

    Not so in Kansas City, however.

    Free drinks at the casino bars at Harrahs and Harvey's Lake Tahoe. Also, a ride on Harrahs boat around Lake Tahoe. I think for two people once a year.

    I know Diamonds do not have to automatically pay the resort fee, but can opt in.

    Are you saying that Diamonds get free wifi in all CET hotels in Vegas?

    Yes, Diamonds get the benefits of the resort fees now without paying. That was one of the changes this year (rather than them not charging but not being able to use it). Not sure if the resort fee covers all CZR hotels or just the one you're staying at though. I know with PH for example, they have free wifi in the casino anyways.

    I know some of the casino's will bring you a bottle of Fiji water if you show your diamond card rather than the run of the house casino bottled water.

    Also at Harrah's CB they USED to have an automatic car wash for diamond players. It took a different card to activate it than the usual diamond players card. It's been closed up for a few years now.
