so, on my upcoming trip in a week, intend to hit the diamond level..my reservation at the linq is comped for the five nights, except for the 25 dollar a night resort fee. so, after I get the necessary points to qualify for diamond, can I go to the total reward center, get new cards right away? can I use the diamond lounges, even if there might be a lag time before points from one tr property, say paris, hit the computer system back at harrahs or the linq? do I need to point out to the front desk the new status, and will I be able to get the resort fees backed off of this stay? hope this is in the right forum, if not please move it, mods!
