    I've been doing some research and have come upon some conflicting information. If anyone could help I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks in advance!

    Basic Diamond. Good for resort fees, parking and little else.

    VIP checkin, $100 annual celebration meal. You can also use it to match mLife, Wynn, Circa for their benefits.

    No resort fees is the best.

    Get it while you can. I don't have any inside info, but with the way they have been cutting, I see them re-examining their FoundersCard and Wyndham partnerships soon.

    I didn't even think about that. Good point.

    I would still make sure you are going to use the benefits fairly quickly after you sign up just in case. Currently, if you cancel or don't renew, your diamond status is revoked shortly after. If the CET/Founder's Card partnership isn't renewed, you would lose your diamond status also. There is a thread about this every year in January before CET expires as the CET/Founder's Card partnership doesn't usually renew until February.

    Get it while you can even if it’s already half the year and they could stop the partnership early next year. I got it last Sept for $99. Only downside is it’s $100 higher the following year but if you’re hedging your bet that Caesars will end the partnership it might be the way to go.

    Stay a few nights and use the $100 birthday dinner and you’ll be ahead. Winning!

    I'll be in Vegas in August and October so I'll definitely be using the benefits quick! Plus I'll try and tier match as many properties as I can while I'm there.

    I just got an email about getting Founders Card for a 12 month free trial. I am already Diamond, so not much for me.

    But a friend is heading to Vegas soon. Do they get the $100 meal thing? Gonna guess they do not get the daily 4 drinks at entry level Diamond.

    Anything else worth it in Vegas?

    For me, it was the diamond dinner, line cutting, and diamond show tickets (RIP). If they're staying at a CET property, they should get resort fees waived as well.

    Base Diamond and NO points. If you want a higher level, you're starting from 0.

    Last time they offered this (that I know of) it didn't include Caesars Diamond. https://www.doctorofcredit.com/founderscard-3-months-of-membership-for-free/
    Do you know if that has changed and it's now included in the free trial?

    I didn’t finish the application because I’ll end up staying at CET only once this year and it won’t be worth it this year. They told me to send them a business card or linkedin profile and I might be able to get a free 6 month membership. I did but then they said they were all out of free memberships…

    Founderscard has been a great benefit for us, we have/will stay at a Caesars property about 14 nights this year, with no resort fees. Wife and I both used our $100 celebration dinners, and we are religious about using our 4 daily drink vouchers (Starbucks mainly). All that for $200 for both my wife and myself. They've been predicting the demise of the partnership for the last 6 years, but it keeps getting renewed. My renewal comes up in May, so I have plenty of time to decide if I want to keep FC or not, I would not pay over $200 though.

    Remember to keep in mind after you sign up for founders and enroll for diamond it can take 2 weeks to actually see Diamond Status applied to your CET account. So don't sign up last minute. At least 1 month prior I would say. If you plan to travel to Vegas once per year for 5nights+ then you break even. Remember Lake Tahoe and other destinations not just vegas. I traveled to a few other placed with my founders Diamond when I was getting comp'd rooms everywhere all the time. Waived resort fees and the Laurel Lounge access where the key benefits. Also skipping the lines at CET Buffets was nice and the 100dollar celeb dinner. Well worth it if you can get it for 300 or less.

    I will definitely be trying it out next year. I want to make sure I take full advantage of the perks. Planning on a February trip so I’ll sign up in January. The resort fees alone should cover the cost of the card.

    The 4 daily drink vouchers are for Diamond Plus and higher. Just obtaining a Founders card does not get you that perk

    If you're getting the vouchers, you may have inadvertently earned Diamond plus, also since you're only earning 4 vouchers that tells me only one of you is Diamond plus.
