    I don’t think I got any of mine yet. Went from June 28-July 2. Strangely I just got an 1100 bump in the last day or so... I don’t know if this was a single 1x bump from my first day or what. 100ish points could be for the cocktails at Vanderpump Garden which I charged to my room but then the 4 45 dollar resort fees times 5 do not equal the remainder. Only had like 4 cocktails.

    Mine for the 5x Vegas just posted. TC’s & GGWU only, though. Missing the RC as of right now.

    I received my Vegas 5x Tier Bonus only no Rewards Credits Bonus yet. I did not receive my Reno 5x awards yet.

    Ugh. I am 261 points away from Diamond Plus assuming all tier promotion points have hit which it seems they have. I know I will easily hit it next trip but on the off chance there are certain offers or promos sent only to plus and up... it would behoove me to go ahead and have it now, no? What’s the easiest way to hit 261 without traveling? I see 100 for making my first marketplace purchase or maybe I can convince someone online about to visit Vegas to let me “refer” them? Any other options?

    My Bar Chart Appears to show my final Tier Score after Reno 5X are posted. CET 714.jpg

    I just had 20,000 TCs post. It appears they gave me 4K per day for my 5 day trip. The promotion was limited to 5K per day and I had several days where I hit way over 1000 earned, one day I had almost 2000 earned, so the math doesn’t add up to what they gave. I figured I’d get the entire 25K cap. Oh well

    My tier score and graph is almost identical to yours....But I never went to Reno nor anywhere else. So I wonder if the bar chart is just a glitch.

    I got the 20k Tier Bonus as well.

    I earned 2.5k+ Tier Credits on each of 5 days in June at Caesars Palace.

    Somewhat bad taste in my mouth as I feel like they shorted me 5k with misleading T’s and C’s for Las Vegas (thinking you could max 5k bonus TC’s a day).

    I am now at 78k Tier Credits for 2020 with plans to play in next week’s Apple promo and a target of two more 2.5k days.

    I will have to do an internal “cost benefit analysis” looking at offers for rest of 2020 to see if it is worth the additional 4.5 rated days at 2.5k after (post Apple event) to get to Seven Stars.

    I agree entirely as I'm in the same situation exactly (less TCs per day earned, but still at a level for the 5K bonus each day). I also feel shorted 5K total for my play and have the same bad taste in my mouth - had I known that the cap was 4K, I would have played differently.

    I questioned the T&Cs on VMB when the promo came out, in relation to how the daily bonus fits with the 5X and many people posted their interpretations. There was not really a consensus and obviously the ambiguity is now proven based off my results.

    So mine posted and I'm officially Diamond Elite. One problem though, apparently there is a glitch in their chart and it still shows the Diamond Plus card and Diamond Elite "locked" yet my next tier to advance to is 7 Stars.

    Now if only Vegas would get back to normal so I can use that $600 airfare credit.

    I am also thinking now that I will only be getting 37,500 Bonus Rewards Credits (7,500 x 5 days) instead of the planned upon 50,000 Bonus Reward Credits (10,000 x 5 days). That’s another $125 in value shorted because I didn’t clearly understand the T’s and C’s of daily limits.

    The last thing I want to be is a newer member quoting "I told ya so" - Many of you guys have much more experience than I do, and I 100000 percent agree it is horrible how they word their terms and make everything so ambiguous, in addition to covered in disclaimers that say things can change at any moment - but it seems my stronger, albeit late to the party, hypothesis on the 5x bonus was correct. I come hoping to offer the best explanation or illumination that I can on what I think ultimately came down or happened.The bonus did say two things that had me think we might get 4x ADDITIONAL. One being that bonuses weren't doubled (aka if you get the earn 1000, get 1000) then you can't get another 1000, plus, it was a multiplier, meaning, you earn 5x instead of 1x, so the first 1x is already counted when you get it, and then the rest comes later. Still, absolutely sucks the way they write things and I lament for you all, including myself, because I am a few hundred short now of Diamond Plus. Please take my post with heart and not with sour.

    What I would do is just take a day trip down to Harrah's SoCal. You should be able to earn a few hundred tier credits without issue. They'll post the same day and you can go to the Rewards desk and get yourself a nice new Plus card. It isn't like there is anything fun to do in LA right now anyway. At least you could get a drink or something and a meal.

    Thanks Paul, is that Harrah's nicer than the one in Vegas do you know? Harrah's isn't my favorite property but you're right its the closest if I do have to leave the house. Unless you think doing so won't make a difference to my offers. I'd be much more excited by it if it were closer to the beach and San Diego... are we even sure they're doing anything fun there either? It is getting difficult deciphering Garcetti and Nuisance's regular updates on what we can and can't do every day and to which areas the rules apply... it seems he particularly hates churches and nail salons but thankfully I don't go to either. Anyways :) :) :)

    The Harrah's in Cali is a higher level hotel than the one in Vegas, though it is smaller. The rooms are very nice for their price point, especially the resort rooms. The casino is modern with high ceilings. The pool has a lazy river which is fun. I'd look up some Youtube videos of it and see if it meets your standards and if you think it is worth going. I've stayed there before and liked it. Was booked into one of the mid sized suites there with a balcony this April but the Rona cancelled that for me.

    I'm of the mindset that being so close to a status bump would be silly not to go for it. As discussed before there are a lot of variables that go into your offer but having the better tier level certainly shouldn't hurt you. Like I said before, only reason I'm not going for 7 Stars is because I still have 50% of the way to go and I have no desire to gamble for several hours daily for several days to get it under these conditions. I also don't know if I would even be able to use the perks this year. However, if I was only 10,000 TC's away I'd make the effort just because. A few hundred? I'd be driving there right now. As a note, you should still be able to tier match your CR card with Barona's as well as any free stay offer. In case you want more time away.

    Ok, sounds/looks quite a bit better than Vegas Harrah's. Since that's the name brand they use around so many other cities, they should put more TLC into the Vegas one as a sort of Flagship... re: Baronas, hmmm, thanks, just googled them. I would feel bad though if I didn't gamble too much there, which I likely might not, since it feels like "wasting" money when I could be working towards leveling up on MLife or Caesars... (Though let's be honest, I'm not surpassing Mlife Gold or Diamond Plus unless there's a 7 or 8x tier credit multiplier from either, lol. Plus, MLife's benefits per tier are extremely vague...)

    You don't get a lot of benefits with Mlife when compared to Caesars. I'm Mlife Platinum and on top of the Gold perks, you get VIP Lounge at Excalibur, Luxor, NYNY and use of Stay Well's Lounge at MGM Grand. Excalibur, Luxor and I think NYNY also have some Platinum parking spaces. You get a free cruise every year, can cut the taxi line, and if the desk agent remembers, a letter when you check in and the ability to see an attraction of your choosing from their list.
