    OK so my last post had some inaccuracies, so I am re-posting with updated information that I hope is cleared up for you all:

    GOLD
    -Reduced pricing at restaurants stays the same, however they are doing away with the 10% discount for retail, spa, and golf.
    -Everything else stays the same.

    PLATINUM
    -All benefits stay the same, including retail discounts and ability to turn RC's into free play.

    DIAMOND
    -The following stay the same: $100 celebration dinner, RC's into free play, Diamond lounge access, Priority lines, 20% discount at retail shops, VIP reservations line.
    -NEW benefits:
    *15% off best available public rate on rooms and suites
    *15% off CET golf courses
    *Guaranteed room with 72 hour notice
    *Guaranteed table/cabana access with 72 hour notice

    DIAMOND LEVEL 1 (40k+ tier points)
    -Complimentary 4 night stay and $100 folio credit remains the same
    NEW benefits:
    *4 high roller tickets instead of 2 as part of monthly benefit
    *5000 tier points will automatically be deposited beginning of 2016, so you get a head start

    DIAMOND LEVEL 2 (80k+ tier points)
    -Everything remains the same except for following additions:
    NEW benefits:
    *5k tier points automatically applied beginning 2016
    *Four happy hour high roller tix (cabin with bar during evening hours)

    SEVEN STARS (150k+ tier points)
    -Everything remains the same with exception of following additions:
    NEW benefits:
    *Instead of one $500 celebration dinner, you can now break it down into 5 $100 increments
    *Instead of just the signature event in Las Vegas, there are now signature events in AC, NOR, LV, and Tahoe. There will no longer be signature cruises.
    *For the appreciation gifts, we have added a new Samsung Galaxy tablet redeemable on property. The tablets will be distributed during Tier Renewal on-property events (limited availability)
    *Earn 1 Experience Credit for every 250k tier credits earned in 2015. Experiences will be posted online. Once I have the comprehensive list I’ll post on this thread. Instead of a linear increase in experiences like last year, you will see the experiences have an exponential increase in value as you earn EC's. Like I just said, I'll post the experiences once I have them, and they will also be available online.

    MAJOR HIGHLIGHTS (IF YOU READ ANYTHING, READ BELOW)

    -If you make Diamond Aspiration 2 (80K) you will have earned two 5k bonuses from reaching Aspiration 1 and 2, so you start out 2016 with 10k Tier Points.

    -Seven Star Experience Credits and Diamond Aspirations can be redeemed up to 6/30/2016.

    -NCL annual voyage is still an automatic benefit for being 7* - it’s good for a room on any 3-7 day cruise; customer pays their own port fees and on board items

    -We removed the Signature Event cruises

    BENEFIT START DATE AND DEADLINES:

    BENEFITS (Discounts, Celebration Dinner, Priority Service, 7* Annual Trip, etc) for Platinum, Diamond, and Seven Star: 4/1/15-3/31/16
    DIA ASPIRATION OFFERS (High Roller, 4 night stay, Getaway, etc) 2015 Tier Score when attaining 40k and 80k: 4/1/15-6/30/16
    SEVEN STARS EXPERIENCES (Exclusive Property Experiences) 2015 Credits earned for every 250k: 4/1/15-6/30/16 *They cannot be combined with EC's earned in 2016.
    SEVEN STAR ANNUAL TRIP: 4/1/15-3/31/16
    DIAMOND 80k OR SEVEN STARS COMPANION CARD: 4/1/15-3/31/16

    *The reason that the Diamond Aspiration trip ($750 airfare) deadline is 6/31/16 whereas the Seven Star Annual Trip ($1200 airfare and $500 folio credit) is 3/31/16 is because the Seven Star trip is considered a tier benefit, whereas the Diamond Aspiration trip is an aspiration earned similar to Seven Star Experience Credits.

    Now open for questions...

    Only two questions both relating to 7 star benefits:

    1. You mentioned adding a Samsung tablet as an appreciation gift redeemable at home property. Do we still have the option as we did in the past of selecting something else and having it shipped directly to us?

    2. In regards to 7 star complimentary room benefit. Do we still get the wifi and pay per view movies or has that been eliminated. The language released addressing that is vague at best.

    Thank you for al the information. I'm 7*s (first year) and haven't received any information.

    One big question for me. HOW do I book my Signature event? Do I go through my host or call a specific number?

    Thanks for your time.

    Scratch off question #1. I noticed over at Slot Fanatics you mention that the other 7 star appreciation gifts are still available on line.

    You can book through your host or the reservation line. When you call the line 1-800-Caesars (1-800-223-7277), it will ask if you are a total rewards member and upon entering your number will direct you to the VIP reservations line. I believe there is another VIP line but can't remember it off the top of my head. I recommend booking through your host so you can avoid any issues that might arise that can be prevented.

    I would give it a little while, not sure if they will post very next day. Most likely similar to the lag in bonuses that post from daily play. I am sure there is a TON of administrative stuff going into it, so be patient shouldn't take too long.

    The 7 Stars brochure indicates the retreat has a $500 dining credit. The rules and regulations mentions that the $500 is for dining and on property shows. In the past, in Las Vegas it was just a folio credit and spa was covered. Has this changed?

    If everything else remains the same, then wifi, in room movies, gym, Qua entrance and spa and salon discounts remain intact?

    The email I received about the bonus has a date of April 15 for bonuses to be posted to accounts.

    I am also wanting to know if the Samsung tablet is the only appreciation gift. If it is not then do we have to opt out of the Samsung to get a different appreciation gift? Will they be online as in the past? Or can we get both the Samsung tablet at the Seven Star renewal event and order an appreciation gift online as we have done in the past?

    Hi Hunter, with the Diamond guarantee on tables and cabana access, you still have to pay the going rate for them right?

    Do Seven Stars members still get the Diamond Aspiration trip when we exceed the 80,000 tier credits this year?

    Major downgrade of the Seven Stars Experiences. Last year a credit was worth roughly $300-$500. This year it's pretty much the same.....except you need 5x as much play to earn a credit this year.

    Yes, that is a pretty major hit for Seven Stars players. Only worth 20% of last year!

    These were a good promotion because they were comps that had no effect on comps based on play. They were additional to the comps I could earn on a trip.

    I might have to start rethinking where I play!

    Agree!

    There's no reason to go beyond 150k tier anymore. CET just cut their own throat.

    I also just noticed that they removed the Appreciation Gift section of the website, so it IS likely that the tablet is the only gift. To me, that's a joke. I have no need for a tablet, especially one that's NOT an Apple product. Just more BS cutbacks from CET.

    I'm hugely disappointed with this change. The old system meant I was basically guaranteed $500 for a few days strong play - now it's $100?? And the experience I was planning on aiming for, the NCL penthouse cruise, isn't available at any level. If offers don't rebound - quite a lot - CET will only see me as a (free) hotel guest in most markets.

    AND.....you have to show up to your home property on specific dates to get the tablet.
    AND.....you have to book under the tablet offer and it cannot be combined with any other offer (free play etc).
