So i no longer work at CET but one of the lines one hears often is " But I'm a diamond " or I have had Seven Star Status for 5 years now.. I am certain the same is true for other brands be it Emerald, Pearl, Black.. etc etc... This viewpoint also isn't what i personally consider fair, unfair, equitable or dis-equitable it is just for informational purposes when making an ask. *** The Tier gets you what ever it that is advertised that comes with the tier level. Not additional things. Lets take a look at Diamond as a status with CET because that's the one I am most familiar with. So 15,000 tier points to 149,999 is Diamond.. As you can imagine there are a LOT of different type of players between 15,000 points and the latter. So when a guest explains they are a diamond.. that actually doesn't offer up much information as to the level of their play when they are asking for additional consideration. The Tier is in and of itself the promise of core defined benefits you have earned and are welcome to. Though there are offers tied to the tier level the majority of your offers are tied to your play amount, risk per day, time on device, and comp to play ratios. ( For example i always feel bad for those people that win like a million in comp because really they are just about to tank their offers for a lifetime ) ... Anyway... Offers also change based on if you are a local, regional or national guest visiting a place. Here is a prime example one sees often enough. ( simplified ) I have a single room remaining. 2 different players would like that last room on a Saturday. The first is a local who gambles $300 a week $150/visit twice a week risking $15,600/ year and is a Diamond. The second is a national guest who comes 2 times a year gambling $2500/visit they are a Platinum ( lower tier ) gaining only $5k / year toward the casino. 100% of the time the room will go to the second person. The first is going to likely put $150 into action whereas the second is going to put $2500 into action. Status is inconsequential. The casino also sees the second as using less comp and resources of the casino on a yearly basis, the second player is just more profitable and requires less service that the prior even though the first is worth more over time. Discretion is almost always short sighted. That's all i've got for now im actually at work but it was just a thought i wanted to share, and i hope it helps someone understand how it is looked at a little better. I also realize the post is rambling and disjointed but well.. yeah. That's how that is guess.
