    Quick question, when you tier match to TR Diamond at the TR desk in a casino, do they give you the Diamond Card then or is there a waiting period?

    Just found out about the mlife gold match to get diamond at CET. I plan I’m doing that this weekend at Planet Hollywood. Will I also get the celebratory dinner voucher and the two free tickets on the same day I tier match? Or does it take a few days to come through?

    Once you get tier matched, you'll be able to get your diamond card and also redeem for the 2 monthly show tickets right away. But the celebration dinner will take a week or more.

    It's too bad that MGM doesn't status match. :(

    How is the dinner reward applied- is a voucher mailed out or will it be put onto your card?

    You visit a TR desk and they will apply it to your card.

    You don't necessarily have to go to the TR/CR desk anymore. The celebration dinner is automatically loaded into your card when you hit Diamond, and you can just use your player's card at the restaurants. In general, any restaurant that accepts RCs, you will be able to use your player's card. There's probably a select few that don't and you would need to get the voucher from the TR/CR desk.

    So in the case of a tier match they will load it on your card but it will not be right away?

    That's correct. There's several other threads on here discussing this. Reports of several days up to a little over a week for the celebration dinner to be loaded onto account.

    Hey guys.....
    On the note of tier match....
    I am Mlife Plat, so did the Tier match in Sep last year and got the Diamond.... (was a 'gold' account with 0 TC credits)....
    I played a little, but not enough to get 5000TC to retain the Diamond into this year, so am back to Gold.......
    I didnt ask about Dinner voucher or show tickets..............
    So on that note, would they still be available as a 1 off from last year ?

    We are staying in CP for 3 nights next month. Plan is to get my wife tier matched to Diamond on the 1st day of our trip, so when we do check-in at CP, we get free parking :D I guess maybe she might get x2 show tickets and a dinner reward ?

    I didn't realize you got the upgraded card right away. I'll have to take advantage next trip to Vegas. I managed to get gold with mlife due to crown and anchor status with royal Caribbean so I'll be able to get diamond with cet with little play with them. Will the free tickets become available right away??

    If you didn't earn enough TC's to maintain diamond, then I assume you're back to Gold? The $100 celebration dinner expires January 31st, so not much you can do about that.

    AKAIK, I believe you can only do the match every other year. The T&C's state people that did it last year are not eligible this year. The below excerpt was taken from CET Tier Match T&Cs. You can always try it again and the worst they can say is no.
    "Participants that had their Caesars Rewards accounts upgraded via the 2018 Diamond Tier Match Offer will not qualify for this offer.

    When I did it in 2017 we received the diamond right then, BUT, it can take a few days to update in their system. Luckily the players card desk warned me, and advised me to do the below:

    If you are staying at CET on a diamond match, you need to be diamond before you check in, to avoid resort fees.

    When you check in, just go to diamond check in, tell them you were just upgraded to diamond, and ask them to check and see if it is showing in their system. If it is not, they can make a call to expedite the internal update to your account. We did this, and the gal checking us in said we WOULD have been liable for resort fees, but once she made the call, we weren't. (And she was really nice! )

    Much easier to take care of it on the front end versus squabble to have them removed on the back end... So get the card AND have the front desk verify status before checking in. Good luck!

    Experiences vary. This was mine:

    I tier matched last year from mlife plat to cet diamond. We did not stay at a CET property.
    I got the diamond card immediately
    Players desk told me it could take a few days for the dinner to post on my card, but it was posted later that same day.
    The two show tickets were available immediately (we forgot to use them :()

    I tier matched as well and was concerned when I heard about the waiting period for the diamond celebration dinner because a lot of my plans revolve around us being able to use that. But it sounds like the waiting period only really applies to someone doing a tier match in person. I've already done it online and I'm officially a diamond member and will have been for a few weeks before I try to use the $100 credit for the celebration dinner. I didn't ask the question specifically in my recent correspondences to customer service, but they did tell me that the celebration dinner was already on my account and ready to use. I just have to actually pick up my card from the CR desk when we go.

    How do you accomplish this on line? Was it from Mlife? I'd rather do it on line than in person but cannot imagine how they can tell your Mlife status. I would think if you were doing it from a hotel partner that CET would have access to that information.

    I did it from a hotel partner. My Hilton Diamond matched to Wyndham Diamond then I matched from Wyndham Diamond to Caesar's Diamond. I'm not sure there's a way to do it online if you're doing it from MGM Gold.

    This is only partially true. Most CET casinos in Vegas will apply it directly to your card except for Bally's, Planet Hollywood and Paris. If you want to use your Celebration Dinner at any of those properties you need to get a physical voucher from the Total Rewards desk.

    So if I don't have my card and I pick it up at Harrah's I need to also visit the desk at Paris if I want to use my celebration dinner there?
