I had a brief trip to Vegas recently and put $60 in slots at Paris while waiting for my table at Mon Ami Gabi. I played for probably 30 minutes at most and left with $60. So minimal play - I have a TR card but haven't played at their properties in probably 3-4 years as I've been loyal to MLIFE. Anyway, I looked online and I have Sun-Thurs comps at most properties - which is crazy to me I can book 5 nights in a row comped at Planet Hollywood in December. I had a look at Caesars Windsor because it is a 3.5 hour drive away and we were looking for something to do on our vacation - sure enough can get a room there too. I have confirmed with Caesars Windsor that they are accepting Gold MLIFE cards to do the diamond upgrade. Which is fantastic for me since I had an unusual year with 3 trips and got gold for the first and only time. It expires Sept 30 so it would be great to use it to get something else. I had a look at the extension offer which would give me diamond until January 2019. I'm planning 2 trips to Vegas next year so it would be nice to get to try using the Diamond perks while there. It says that if your tier match date is Aug 1 - 31 you can earn tier credits between Sept 1 - Dec 31, 2017 and if you get 5000 you will kept diamond for another year. I'm not familiar with CET tier credits how much $ would I have to run through the machine to achieve 5000 points? We could tier upgrade on Aug 31 and start earning Sept 1 on the same trip. However, I'm thinking it might take me a couple trips by Dec in order to achieve that. I only play slots. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to maximize the tier credits I can earn? Is there a way to do it online by playing gamers, etc? I am in Canada so can't get the credit card.
