    When going thru the "reservations" tab, you can have 5 comped nites instead of 3. While in LV....2 free show tickets per month (limited list offered and not usually a top tier show although Jersey Boys occasionally are offered). My Diamond free play is higher than when I was Plat. Diamond lounge admittance. All I can think of right now.... :)

    Number of nights is not a perk. I've been platinum for only a year and gold for all time before that. I could regularly get 5 nights in a row comped.


    What comps you get are more dependent on your play. If you have increased your play recently, then your comps will go up. If you just go on more trips and play the same amount each trip, then they will just stay the same.

    2 free show tickets isn't listed there because it might be a Vegas only perk.

    Best perks to me would be

    Diamond Lounge
    Free $100 dinner each year
    2 free show tickets
    More priority lines. For casino cages at least this is not that great in Vegas since at Platinum you already had access. Dinner reservations might be easier, but I've never had issues even at Gold level.

    Very little.

    Comps are tied to your play, not your level.

    My favorite Diamond perks have always been Diamond check in at the hotels and the Diamond lines at the cab stands in Vegas. Once, I was walking through the "unwashed masses" registration area at Flamingo in the middle of the afternoon, and I swore I would never let my Diamond card lapse

    by the way, what is the $100 dining voucher I have seen mentioned? I have been Diamond since 2006 and have never received this. Do I need to check with a host or VIP services?

    It's new this year. Just go to the Total Rewards desk and they will give you a voucher for $100 that you can use towards dinner and a whole bunch of restaurants. It's good until March 2014 but needs to be used all at once. We used ours at the Mesa Grill in August and it was excellent!

    Most excellent!. We are only staying at Caesars for 2 nights this trip, and I have a $125 dining credit with my offer. We have plans to eat at Mesa, but I may need to find some other things to use the $125 on.

    Things to keep in mind on the $100 dining certificate: You must have it printed at the property where you plan to eat. (This per TR CSR at Horseshoe So IN) Not able to take to another property......even in LV. You can get one now based on your current Diamond status from 2012 and then another when you make diamond this year. Pretty sweet deal.

    Sooooo waittttt, I earned my Diamond for next year several months ago. SO I can go to the Caesars TR booth one night and get a $100 voucher for Mase Grill because I earned Diamond last year and then go to the Paris TR booth the next night and get a $100 voucher for Gordon Ramsay Steak the next night because I have more than 15K TC's now? Hmmmmmmmmmmm

    Karen....per the TR desk that I went to....it's only once each time you earn Diamond. She said to get 1 certificate BEFORE turning Diamond this year and then I can get another for earning Diamond this year. She said it is too difficult to determine eligibility status to get 2 certifs after I got Diamond this year.

    OK, so if I had gone in January, I could have picked up one based on my earning Diamond last year. but since I have already earned this year, I will only get one. Got it. But that's OK. Just glad I know about it now

    Actually, the voucher for the $100 Diamond Dinner says that it can be used at any CET owned dining outlet. This means anywhere, not just the casino that printed it for you. I confirmed with my host in IN that I can use it in Vegas.

    Thanks for the clarification. I had seen other discussions on VMB where people had gotten two $100 "Diamond dining vouchers" this year and I was wondering if I blew it by not getting the 1st one before I reached 15,000 TCs for 2013. Sounds like I did :cry: Of course, I think I only heard about this after I had reached 15,000.
