    You will get full benefits for 2021 and benefits again in 2022.

    Be aware that unused benefits will NOT roll over into 2022. (ex. if you only use $200 of the $500 in meals, it will NOT roll over. You will lose it) unless an extension is announced. (which I highly doubt).

    Additionally, you have until January 31, 2022 to use your 2021 retreat. You must TAKE it (not book it) by 1/31/2022. Otherwise, you lose it.

    In addition to the points made by @DaiLun a Seven Stars for this year (up to Jan 31, 2022) should get:

    • Seven Stars Companion card (not much value other than line skipping)
    • Heavily discounted stay at Atlantis Bahamas
    • Two nights at Dubai (ya, right)
    • Two golfing events at Vegas at Rio Secco or Cascata golf range which you can book yourself online as a "Signature Experience" as a basic Seven Stars (see screen shot below)

    Signature experience is only after you get to 250,000 tier points. Some experiences require multiple points.

    That's what I thought as well but that's before I puttered around the Seven Stars drop down menu after I logged in under my wife's account who only has a few tier points after basic Seven Stars (and no experience point credits). After the Signature Experience window, press the "Book Now" button and you will see a drop down menu which shows every choice. The end of the menu includes the following choices:

    "4 EC -- Palazzo Suite Experience
    6 EC -- Drai's Beach Club or Night Club Experience
    16 EC -- WSOP Main Event Seat
    50,000 RC in lieu of the Annual Retreat
    Diamond -- 2 Free Nights at Ceasars Resorts
    Seven Stars -- Golf Benefit
    Seven Stars -- Golf Benefit
    Seven Stars -- 2 Free Nights at Ceasars Dubai Palace"

    Based on this menu, it looks like Golf in Vegas is a basic Seven Stars (150,000 tier credit) benefit.

    I am too technically challenged to take a screen shot but if you are Seven Stars, you can look yourself.

    I’m not sure what you’re saying. Are you saying that no experience credit is required and it’s just comes with basic
    150,000 tier credits? I thought that 1 experience credit is
    earned at 250,000 tier credits. In any case, if can get it for base good for you.

    Yes, at least for golf in Vegas. That is my understanding and is consistent with (the until recently) listed Vegas Seven Star benefits in sevenstarsinsider.com (may Darryl RIP).

    You are correct that the first Experience Credit is earned at 250,000. But no ECs are required to be redeemed for Golf benefit, or Dubai rooms or a couple of other choices on the Experience Credit menu.

    I too will be 7 stars for the 1st time. So does that mean I get 500.00 food when I go to Nola in December and then again next year? If so, is the 500.00 every time you go to a Harrahs casino? Or just once a year.

    The $500 or in 5 $100 increments. You spend them individually or together. However, when using them you need to utilize them to come to a $100 increment. When there is no remainder if you use less than $100.
    Example: your meal comes to $165. If you use two $100
    there is no remainder. It’s as if you spent $200.

    So if this is the case we want to take this years annual retreat to AC in mid December. Do I book it through a host? Do I book the airfare? Can I take my family (I know I CAN take them) but would their air fare be covered or partially covered? Anyone have an AC host they would recommend?

    In Vegas two free rounds of golf every six months (you plus three friends) at Rio Secco or Cascata.

    You're welcome but remember, after COVID as well as Eldorado's takeover, all bets are off so do your own verification to see if anything has changed.

    The golf benefit is basic 7stars and requires no experience tokens or whatever those things are called.

    they airfare (up to $1200) covers two people. so yes,you can take your family. CET will cover 2 tickets, and you'd pay for the rest

    I just noticed that you can choose 50,000 reward credits instead of taking the retreat.
    What a ripoff. The retreat will give you up to $1200 toward air fare, a free room plus $500 to charge to your room.
    They give you $500 worth of reward credits, that a great deal - for them.
    If you earn Diamond Elite you get $600 toward air fare.

    Let's make sure you're talking about the same $500..... There is the $500 worth of celebration dinners that can be used in $100 increments as others have discussed. These can be used at any CET properties and you have until Jan 31, 2022 to use them. You get another $500 worth next year. If you're going to NOLA as your 7 star retreat, there is a 50,000 ($500) rewards credit added to your total rewards account to use for food and drinks. This is part of the retreat. NOLA is nice in that you get rewards credit and you can use or not use it all during your trip. When you take your retreat to other properties, the $500 is a folio credit and has to be used up during that trip or it's forfeited.
