    I am diamond plus, but haven't stayed at a Caesars Property since 2019. I did have reservations at CP last summer, but travel restrictions cancelled those plans.

    I understand Laurel Lounges are closed, and they are doing drink vouchers instead. In particular, how does this work at Caesars Palace? Do I need to go somewhere to get the vouchers activated, or are they automatically on my card each day? Is the number still 4, and are they up to $20 each? Can I use them at Starbucks still, and will 1 voucher allow a couple of Starbucks beverages? Sorry for all the questions, and I appreciate all the feedback.

    Domeboy, you print your 4 vouchers out from a kiosk, located near the Rewards Center counter. They can be used at any CET casino, not just the one you printed them out. They are only good for one drink for $20 or less, even if the value of the drink is much less than $20. They are only good for the day you printed them out and expire at midnight that day so they are use them or lose them (although I'm not sure that all bartenders, or baristas, look at them that carefully). Welcome back to Vegas!

    Thanks. I thought I had read somewhere that you could get multiple drinks at Starbucks. Thanks for clearing that up. I also read they raised drink prices to over $20 a lot of places, how does that work......pay the difference or multiple tickets?

    Generally, $20 drink or less (Vanderpumps speciality drinks are $18 so that works well). You cannot pay the difference or use two vouchers to upgrade to a speciality $20+ cocktail.

    I would double check on the Starbucks thing, I'm sure you can do that there. The CET staff has stated you can use em there and it'd be pretty dumb not to stack drinks for one voucher in that case :)

    Looks like Vanderpump is off the list, not showing up anymore on participating bars. I am here now, and headed over there to verify.

    If you go to the Montecristo Cigar Lounge you can get a 1 Ltr. Fiji bottle.

    Do yourself a favor and get them early in the day. Especially at CP. We were staying at Bally's but met friends at CP who was staying at Bellagio and decided to use our 4 vouchers at the CP Lobby Bar last Wednesday at 10pm. The machine was out of paper (by the cashier cage) and the cocktail waitress wouldn't take my word for it, so I had to go back to the cashier cage to get printed vouchers. Which took another 30 minutes.

    Morale to the story. Get them early in the day and don't be spontaneous.

    Crazy that (according to at least one member) you can get a specialty cocktail at Vanderpump with the voucher but I couldn't get a Tito's and Red Bull at Sully's Bar at Bally's (bartender said it was $24).

    Ballys and Paris had some dumb drink policy to where you couldn't get hardly anything comped even when playing. The red bull made everything more expensive than they could comp. It's lightened up since then but I still don't think you can get anything with red bull comped or with the voucher.

    ...So, I have clarification on Vanderpump. I'm here now, and they DO still take the vouchers, even though the Caesars website is not showing them anymore.

    In other means, no one from Caesars Management told Vanderpumps not to take the vouchers anymore.

    I have used them at the Paris pool many times. Cannot confirm any other CET pools, but I would assume so. Make sure to have your ID with, as some CW’s confirm the name on the drink tickets.
