I did this last year as well and it seemed to generate some good discussion and include some good information. I know @DaiLun does one for 7 stars, but we seem to be getting a lot of questions about whether or not attaining Diamond is worth it. This has been my/my wife's experience and value retained for 2019. I can post this now as we are done with CZR in 2019 having re-upped Diamond25k already. Any future trips will be at non-CZR properties until the Super Bowl party in 2020. This year our play and comping was done exclusively in Atlantic City as we were unable to travel to LV, so while some of the value perks for Diamond are different, there is certainly a corresponding or proportionally better benefit in LV. I will try my best to note those and some major differences. Also this information and value of Diamond for us is posted with an understanding that 25k is the Diamond threshold being discussed and that comps are derived from play not status, but that playing for the status typically generates these comps. Play is about 75% VP (6/5 Bonus triple play) 20% slots 5% table play. 8+ hours of play every full day Points = Tier Credits This year's Diamond was accomplished in 3 trips totaling 11 nights over 3 weekends (Super Bowl, June, August). February was a 3 night stay with 3 1k point days and 1 500 point day at check out. Total points received 6,625 (give or take a few for overage on the bonuses.) These were doubled as February was a double point month putting me at 13,200 + about 1000 from end of year bonuses. For the trip we were comped 3 nights (Fri Sat Sun) in a centurion room over the super bowl (Valuing at 200 per night including resort fees = $600) I figure Value as close as friends of our who were coming and backed out last minute had room at Ballys for same night for 725 all in with no status. Meals covered were 125 to Gordon Ramsay Pub and 135 to Nero's brunch and 45 to the noodle bar for a total of 305. We also ate/drank in the DL multiple times each day (snacks and booze) figured to the tune of 150 bucks if we were paying for the snacks and drinks. We were comped tickets to the super bowl party which, with top shelf booze and high quality food we figured was about 75/ ticket for another 150 in comps. Total comps of about 1200 dollars and around an 800 dollar loss. June was a 4 nighter and was a big loser. Arrived late Thursday and so play was 500, 1k, 1k, 1k, and around 2 for total points earned of 3700. Bonuses of 3125 are applied to this for a total earn of 6825. Comps were 4 summer nights with a value of about 250 per night all in. At time of booking Friday and Saturday booking at 399 and then 499 with 299 for Thursday and Sunday. I personally would never pay more that 250 per night so that's always the top of my comp value. Meals covered were coffee shop, noodle bar and nero's brunch for a total of 200. Multiple DL trips including 2 full dinners figuring and 2 full lunches about 300 out of the DL. We also had 2 beach days with free chair rental (35 each day) and free pool access to Caesars roof( 25/ea) and access to Bally spa (20 ea) 160 total. We figured roughly 1660 in comps and a loss close to 1500. Last trip, last weekend 4 nighter. Arrived Thursday early so points were 1k 1k 550 900 200 for 3650 earned with 2250 in bonuses for 5900 give or take. Closing the year with 26228 in TC. Again summer room rate in full forces including them not comping in laws 1 night so figure 250/nt comp We took BIL/SIL with us and ate pretty high end relative to our normal routine with a dinner at Gordon Ramsay steak (total comp of only $50 after a gift card, celebration, and dining credit) Nero's brunch for 4 of 265, noodle house for 75. total food comps of 390. 1 beach day rental $35, caesars pool 25/ea, and more DL entries than I could keep track of. 1 day I know the lady commented I had been in 8 times. We were just going in and getting drinks to go most of the time. Figure DL saved roughly $500 in drinks between us. Roughly 1950 in total comps and a break even trip thanks to a royal. Total used comps for 2019 were 3810 with a loss of 2300 give or take. Unfortunately we missed a lot of good opportunities as we booked out trips to coincide with concerts at Hard Rock instead of better giveaways. I also don't factor any free play into this but average about 60 dollars in free play per day between Caesars and Ballys. As to the major differences of earning Diamond in AC and using it there vs LV. Lounges in AC are first rate all the way. Food is always available when open and dinner includes carving station and multiple entrees. In LV even when hot food is available it's usually meh. By contrast the value in LV is made up in show tickets as AC has almost no shows. (Ballys comedy club with comp tickets available.) Spa access in LV outweighs Spa access at Ballys AC. Beach access in AC with full lounger setup outweighs pool access in LV. From most of the replies the consensus is that comps are a little easier to come by in AC as opposed to LV so that may make my Diamond Value worth it. If you have any specific questions I am happy to see if I can answer them. But 2019 was worth retaining Diamond, now we start all over again in 2020 lol.
