This is the November 12 update
Bally’s rewards center let me take a photo
Thanks for posting!
Under Flamingo, it has Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips. Is this the one on the Linq Promenade, or is there another one?
G R fish is at the linq promenade
this is an error on the paper
That makes more sense! We enjoyed GR Fish & Chips on our last LV visit but I hadn't realized we could use the LL benefit there. I guess that means we could also use RCs or charge to our room to be comped off at end of stay.
Hmmmm, I was there two weekends ago and was told twice, by two different bartender, that I couldn’t use these at vista lounge or NOBU. Has this been updated since then and thus been added?
They seem to update the list weekly.
November Diamond Plus drinks update
Laurel Lounge Free Drink Restaurants
Current Diamond plus drink benefits?
This is great. I am very glad Caesars has been expanding the list.
GR Fish and chips is on the Promenade but part of the Caesars Rewards network. You can use your reward credits there and the Laurel Lounge rewards.
The list can also be found here:
The bottom of that page says one offer per member per day. So it’s just one drink a day? Did you have to get a voucher from TR?
Now while nothing would surprise me when it comes to this benefit - even Caesars would no run a promo giving you 4 drink vouchers only one of which you could redeem!
At Paris you get your vouchers from the TR desk , not sure about all the Vegas Casinos. In Tahoe the vouchers get spat out daily by the electronic kiosks which are exactly the same as the Vegas kiosks. Why they can't program the Vegas kiosks to do this - see the first sentence of this post!
At Paris, you now get vouchers from the kiosk.
Same with Caesars Palace now.
I think all Vegas casinos are now onboard with the drink and $10 food vouchers from the kiosks.
For awhile there, there was a loophole where you could get double the offers at the places that didn't offer the vouchers (so I could get the four drinks/$10 food at Caesars by swiping at the restaurant, then go to Paris and pick up vouchers for four drinks/$10 food).
Good to know they've finally gotthe kiosks setup.
First week of November at CP they were trying to convert to vouchers, but communication was all messed up. Multiple times during that trip I was told they moved to vouchers, go to kiosks and print them out at Starbucks and DiFara. I'd go to the kiosk and the sign says just use your card at the vendors, then I'd walk over to rewards desk and go wtf is up? and they'd ask where I'm being told to print vouchers and then roll their eyes when I told them Starbucks and say we already called them to correct them. It was very frustrating waiting in a long line to be told can't use benefit. I just charged to my room knowing i'd get it comp'd off, then went to print vouchers for later just to find out I didn't need vouchers.
Also, there were even issues with different locations that weren't using vouchers. I used my food credit at GR Fish and Chips and a Starbucks in the Promenade, and when I went to Starbucks at CP the cashier asked how many drinks i'd like to use and if i'd like to use my food credit. So I went how many do I have left, and I was told all 4 and the food credit. I didn't abuse it. Another day, I used 2 drinks at Harrah's and when I went back to CP I asked and they said i had all 4 drinks still. So they weren't too organized with it.
Don't you think 7 stars should get more drink vouchers than Diamonds since it's double to reach 7 stars?
Is that how it is in the Lounge? Nope
7* get additional guests so in reality you do get more value from the lounge if you bring an extra guest or two. That's where it sucks. If you are with a group of 4 people the 4 drinks won't go very far vs. the lounge where you could drink to your hearts desire.
Plus 7 stars can designate a companion so they can bring in 4 people plus themselves which should translate to 20 drinks
I kind of think they should issue vouchers at each property, for use only at that property, seeing as how you could visit the Laurel Lounge at each property.
I don't mind that Seven Stars gets the same number of drinks (it's another degradation of Seven Stars vs. Diamond) -- though woudn't mind if the $10 food voucher were a bit more, say $15 since most sandwiches/salads at the grab'n go places are $12+.
For me, the 4 drinks daily are plenty and I can never use all of them. I much prefer the vouchers to the Lounge, since I can stock up on waters (especially the large Fijis when available) and juices and sodas.
But yeah, if going for bar drinks with others, then the 4 drinks are limiting.
