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!!
