    As long as they keep giving me 5 free nights (and others don't without hosts having to "Pull strings") I will stay with TR.

    Being a diamond member is FAR from special anymore.
    7* still has a bit of an elusive feel.. but even with all those bonus's that is out of my risk level

    Is there a program to get put in a higher tier from another program that will also translate into the diamon tier for cet? Like a credit card sign up?

    The only other "program" or card I know of that gives you Diamond is the Founder's Card. Haven't heard any CC's that gives you Diamond. Actually belay my last. CET and Wyndham just partnered up. So if you're Diamond with Wyndham, you can match to TR Diamond if you have status with them and vice versa.

    Diamond status means nothing now.

    that's just not true for many people, especially if they are paying resort fees in LV

    Also some of the locals customers can get a lot of benefit if their diamond lounge is decent, and the locals joints can have diamond only promos and giveaways

    Line cutting, too, can be nice.

    There are a subset of people for whom diamond is well worth the cost of a founders card.

    I think your statement is truer about platinum, which lost a lot of its value when they had to start paying resort fees.

    Yeah I just got the email regards to this so when I'm in Vegas over the summer I'm gonna take the offer and upgrade to diamond; currently platinum @mlife I want to take advantage of their lounge, does all Cesar's property offers Diamond lounge?

    Interesting. I may be within range of Gold Identity this summer which is on their match list. Even if there's not a TON of benefits it's crazy not to take them up on it if you have status elsewhere. Certainly worth spending 10 minutes in the TR line.

    Not all properties offer Diamond lounges. Most do. The only one that I know of in LV that doesn't have one is Linq. Also FYI, in AC if you happen to go, you need to have 25K TC the previous year or current year in order to get in Diamond lounges for free. If you don't, you need to pay 10K RC for entry.

    thanks SOOOO much for sharing this! We were kicking around trying CET this trip, but since I don't pay resort fees, with mlife right now (I know, lucky), its been killing me having to go back to rf.

    I know it's not a huge deal to some, but it definitely makes a property much more attractive when I don't have RF. Or maybe I'm just a big cheapo...oh well. :)

    I am absolutely looking into this since we are platinum mlife and identity gold....thank you for the tip!

    Think I'll be taking my Platinum Identity card over there in September. Does the Diamond Lounge offer food and alcohol ?

    Does anyone think that upgrading but then not matching the play level will have impacts on future offers? I have platinum at mlife from a link with Royal Caribbean and would like to "double dip" to diamond with CET just to not pay resort fees on my upcoming trip but I'm afraid of messing up offers down the road.

    The Diamond lounge usually has hot appetizer (chicken wing like) from 4 or 5 for a couple of hours. Alcohol yes all of them do though Caesars and Paris have a nice bar, Planet Hollywood has a set up for drinks in a room off the sitting area but all have very good service. They are a nice place to get a way for a break.....Rick

    Just upgraded at Bally's Atlantic City with my Borgata Black card. Very easy process, took less than 5 minutes. Will not show updated for about 10 days so I'm glad I did it now as we are Vegas bound on June 27th.
    Update: Just checked my account and it is showing Diamond so it updated within an hour.
