    I am very close to hitting the 80000 tier credits needed to reach the Diamond Level 3 and have some questions.

    I know once you reach that tier you get a $750 airfare credit which has to be booked through the TR travel department. But what I'm not sure of is how long I have to use that credit. Is it only good through March 31st? If so, that's going to be a problem for me. Let's say I reach that tier in December, does that mean I only have until March 31st to take my trip using the airfare credit? Or do I have all of next year too?

    Also, I know we receive the r/t limo service within 50 miles, but is that for every trip booked or only the trip booked using the free airfare?

    Thanks!

    Dunno on the airfare, but the limo is only once, likely the trip you use the airfare...air/hotel/limo all in one package

    and bear in mind, that limo is only in Las Vegas, not r/t to your local airport

    "ASPIRATION Level 3: 80,000 Tier Credits
    Unlock an Annual Retreat to any Total Rewards destination with a $750 airfare credit, invitation to a NYE party, VIP round-trip airport transportation within 50 miles, Companion Card to share your priority service benefits with a friend, early check-in/late check-out, upgrade to best available room at check-in, as well as waived fees on check cashing and credit card advances.

    Diamond Aspiration levels are based on your 2013 Tier Score, and the privileges of each level you reach can be enjoyed through March 31, 2014. Some restrictions may apply. Please see Total Rewards Center for complete details."


    I would say you have to take your trip by March 31, 2014. Plus you need to give them 30 day notice for airfare.

    I would also say you separately get the VIP round-trip airport transportation within 50 miles to their properties.

    I was told by my host that the Diamond Level 3 airfare must be used by the end of March 2014. I haven't used the airfare yet, but have used the limo on 2 separate trips since reaching that level. In fact, we're being picked up Saturday at MSS and heading to the strip (wasn't sure if they'd pick us up somewhere else rather than the airport, but no problem booking it). Hope this helps.

    I'm just a **** hair away from getting Diamond Level 3, I should have just taken care of it on some recent trip to AC instead of playing at Borgata but since it wasn't a CET multiplier day I didn't bother going there and forgot about Level 3.

    Question: Can the $750 airfare credit be used for 2 people and I just pay any overage? My flights to Vegas are typically only $400-$500 or so roundtrip so it'd be nice to use the entire $750 towards two tix and just pay the difference.

    Also, is the companion card good for the entire next year or does that expire in March 2014 like the other Level 3 benefits too?

    We used the $750 for both our tickets. We actually did an open jaw with part of it in first class. I think we kicked in a few hundred when it was all said and done.

    I did the research on what flights I wanted and provided that to them.

    airfare thats good it can be use for more than one person at once...how about using it multiple times, there would be a lot of leftover for people that get the $1200 airfare, so for seven stars let say one use $150 for the first trip then that person still have $1050 left on their airfare for future trips?

    Yes, you can use the $750 credit on any airline, any time. You or your host has to book through CET's travel agency. My understanding is that one or two people may travel but you have to use the entire credit in one trip or lose it.

    My question is--the limo benefit seems to be characterized as an everyday, ongoing one, not single use only. I always get a limo when staying @ CP anyway, but sometimes the cost is charged to my rewards credits when departing. Does anyone know if the arrival and departure limos are automatically picked up and NOT charged to your room/RCs if you are Diamond III/Seven Stars? Or is it just another "fake" benefit and simply charged to your RCs/discretionary comps as it normally would be? My national casino marketing host pretends as though he doesn't understand the question, which is ridiculous, and makes me think the limo will be charged as usual to RC/comp acct. I have not made a trip w CET since making Diamond III so I really don't know.

    I will ask this morning as we'll be using the limo to head to the strip today and again using it again tomorrow to head to the airport. I'm pretty sure it did not come off my comps the last time we used it but I'll try to confirm that it is truly complimentary.

    The Limo via the Aspirations booking does NOT come off your Reward Credits.

    And, to confirm again, you can use any airline. As I said, I actually gave them the flights, times, etc. And at least one leg was in first because there was a good price.

    But you MUST have the CET people book the flight.

    DO NOT book the flight yourself, and then expect a $750 refund, it does not work that way

    By the way, you all have now made me curious about the limo service, whether it's a one time comp (no RC's or discretionary comp $$ used) or if every trip to a CET will provide a free comp limo service while Diamond III

    It is part of the one time trip. Not ongoing.

    If your play is higher enough, the host might help you out, but it is not part of the Diamond Aspiration trip thing.

    Just return from Vegas after reaching 87,500. So I went on line to find out how to get the airfare and found this thread.

    Very helpful, now if I can only talk my wife into NYE
