    Yep, just got mine "Through March 31st, 2015, we are giving you a 50% bonus on the first 50,000 Tier Credits you earn! So, you could walk away with up to 25,000 EXTRA Tier Credits to count towards your Tier Status, and we even started counting on January 1st.*

    This is great news, should be able to renew my diamond status by April 1st. Will be interesting to see if they keep the other bonus tier points in place as well, if so, this is even better.

    Just gotta hope they don't revamp the whole program (in a negative way) on April 1st. To me, this seems like an effort to soften the blow of future changes. Hopefully I'm wrong....

    Also got this email, really really exciting about it

    In Vegas from March 5 to 9th and if I have money left over after, I may have to make a run to Casino Windsor when I get back to keep on adding up the credits.

    Just read this email also. Came here to see if it made sense or if I was missing something. Guess 50% extra is good!

    thats a serious bonus IMO....

    I guess if you heard 5000 you would get that 5k bonus plus this 2500 bonus......

    Yeah everyone we got word of this the other day, wanted to let our emails go out. Best part is that the points earned from tier credit daily bonuses goes towards this program above, so it's almost like double dipping. Great way to make aspiration 2.

    I guess I'm a little confused. The way I'm reading this is that you only earn this 50% bonus on earned tier credits, thus the tier credit daily bonuses would not count toward the 50% bonus. For example, if I earned 5,000 tier credits in a day, I would get a 10,000 daily tier credit bonus and then a 50% bonus on my 5,000 earned credits, for a total of 17,500 credits. I would not get a 50% bonus on all 15,000 credits. Am I reading this correctly?

    So I am planning a trip to Caesars in Vegas in early April. If I accumulate 10,000 tier credits by March 31st, will I be able to get the resort fees waived? It says these bonuses aren't added to the account until April 15.

    No surprise. I expected no changes that would effect the hotel guests.

    I would like to know that answer to that also. Hunter's post makes me assume that you get the 50% bonus on the daily bonus tier credits also. If so then in your example you would end up with 22,500 tier credits off of 5,000 of credits for play. It is tier credits and not reward credits so you can't cash them in for anything - but it would make it easier to reach upper levels. This is the key part of the fine print from above:

    "50% Tier Credit Bonus will be awarded on up to the first 50,000 Tier Credits earned from January 1, 2015 through March 31, 2015, for a maximum total bonus of 25,000 Tier Credits. Daily Tier Credit Bonuses will count toward the 50,000 Tier Credits maximum."

    Question is whether the "daily bonus" tier credits are included as "earned" tier credits as that term is used in the first sentence. The second sentence makes it clear that the daily credit bonuses do count toward the maximum - which I think might imply that they are considered "earned" tier credits. Otherwise I player who gets more daily bonuses would be at a disadvantage and would get fewer of these "bonus credits" before hitting the 50K maximum.

    50K maximum to me is not in the ballpark. I generally just get to the basic Diamond in a year - but I have already had a couple of 1,000 credit days this year which got me 1,000 bonuses. If both of those qualify for the 50% bonus that would turn those 4,000 tier credits into 6,000. If I just do that a couple more times at the local joint before 3/31 that along will get me almost to renewing Diamond. Makes me at least think of I might possibly get to that next Diamond level this year. Not even sure what that takes or what you get though as I have never really even thought about it.

    No the way I read it you would get the 50% bonus added to base tier and daily bonus tier, however not to loyalty credits (I don't know what they are) . So if you get 2500 points a day you would get your 5000 bonus points, giving you 7500 tier points the added 50% 3750 points would have you earning 11,250 points a day, almost diamond in a day. 4 days would have you tier one diamond aspirations.

    I would guess not automatically if you are not already Diamond. But if you explained that to a host I woud bet they would comp you for those resort fees if you give them decent play in Vegas.

    Any tier credits you earn this first quarter, original and the existing tier bonuses, count as earned tier points. If you earned 5k tier points in a day, you get the 10k bonus, meaning you earn .5 tier points extra for all 15k. Bonus t.cs are considered earned tcs as well. It won't reflect until after q1 so don't expect the extra points to show up right away.
