    You would think...but most of the changes they have made to those who actually give them the play are foolish. Most cost them LITTLE & those high rollers appreciate it.

    I have loved my 3 years of Founders Card. But every year it's a crapshoot. Luckily my membership is up in April so I can see from year to year if it is worth it to renew. (since we have gotten virtually no other use out of it; it did get us Marriott Gold status for 3 months, and with a week at the Waikiki Marriott it got us some nice perks--room with a view, 7 drinks, 7 breakfasts)

    If Founders Card is dropped, I may consider DIAD with my level of play now. Makes me nervous, though!!

    Correct, I changed my post. I was adding the bonus RC days, like was mentioned, but my sentences were flip flopped.

    I say play it all in one day.

    Every year I give CET one day of video poker play. I play $50,000 to earn Diamond and to establish a high ADT (about $1,500 per day). With that ADT I get incredible offers including airfare and about $5,000 in free play. I take advantage of many of the offers and almost all of the free play but I don't put another $1 of my own money in. After about six months the offers dry up and I don't go back until the first of the next year. Repeat each year.

    On a RC multiplier day. Does this count for TC too? Can I get to DIAD faster? What exactly do I need to earn to get to DIAD in this equation, if so, & based on the fine print? I'm Gold now. Thank you.

    Negative, only on RCs earned, which are based on tier credits earned. So, for example, you earn 1000 TCs, resulting in a 1000 tier credit bonus, and have an offer for 1000 RCs, on a multiplier day. Only the 1000 RCs based off if the original, earned 1000 TCs are multiplied. No tier credits are multiplied.

    RC multipliers/promos don't apply to TCs and TC promos/bonuses don't apply to RCs. RCs aren't really "based on" TCs or vice versa. They're both based on coin-in or spend.

    Quick question - can you confirm that promo is for a local CET place? I don't see it on the TR site and didn't get an email. And the playing day is midnight - midnight.

    It is for Cesar's Windsor, Ontario Canada. It's on their website. I live in Michigan & this is the closest for me.
