If I was going for seven stars i'd worry more about it. My main reason for diamond is not paying resort fees, if I don't get the dinner for next year it's not the end of the world.
I did a little digging and found this page: https://www.caesars.com/caesars-entertainment-updates

Scrolling through the faq points I found:

If I use Tier Benefits, like the $100 Diamond Dinner, in 2020 do I get those benefits again in 2021 as part of the extension?

No. If you use your benefits in 2020 you will not have them available in 2021. If you do not use your benefits in 2020, they will be extended and available to use in 2021.



If you have earned status for 2021 then you will have a new set of benefits available, like normal.

Good to know.

That's kind of teh suck, even though the dinner doesn't mean much to me. I usually get about 40 bucks worth of comfort food. At least these days they should be agreeable towards take-out.

Re: Diamond in a Day - CET Total Rewards

If resort fees and line cutting are your main interests then it probably doesn't matter. It'll be a little bit before pay-for-parking returns, at least in this town.

I earned seven stars in late april of 2019, mostly due to the most ridiculous mailer I ever got from the Tahoe properties. Earning it then meant about 21 months of Seven Stars perks, including getting the once a year things in both 2019 and 2020.

Outside of those, the key benefits for me are getting three guests into the laurel lounges instead of one guest, and free use of the spa at Caesars. Also, the companion card for my wife, which lets her use the spa for free as well, which is convenient for her commute home from work, especially since she can use the seven stars valet which is super close to the spa.

And naturally, cutting the line in front of all the diamond members is awesome too, and fairly useful for the lounges in vegas.

Of course, who knows when the spas, lounges, or poker rooms will be back open. So it seems unlikely that I'll try and earn Seven Stars again in 2020, unless there are some really, really juicy offers.

Re: Diamond in a Day - CET Total Rewards

I'm hoping they wind back the odds-tightening on vp they did this year, to stimulate business again. Especially since Caesars and Flamingo have crappy vp and Tahoe is still closed.

Re: Diamond in a Day - CET Total Rewards

when casinos re open I will be at 100k tier. so making 7 stars should be very easy this year. As long as poker is shut down online poker is booming, im doing a minimum of 8k tier a month online, and I am sure there will be several 5x tier promos when things reopen. This will be my first time making 7 stars, so besides whats on the website, what benefits are there... You mentioned spa at caesars, does that mean free massages? you also said something about 7 star valet, there is a seperate valet area at caesars?

The 7 star valet is located at the south side of the building on Flamingo Blvd.

No free massages, but you get access to one of the nicest gym/spas in town; I used it all the time when I was 7 star. You also get to skip a bunch of lines... cabs, restaurants, sportsbook, WSOP, etc.

Not sure if it's still the case, but some of the bars (eg Rio, Flamingo) would comp your drinks, no play necessary. Also gave you access to better alcohol at the poker table.

Re: Diamond in a Day - CET Total Rewards

Yeah, if you come off the highway at Flamingo, you head towards the strip and turn left into Caesars a little bit before the strip. It's opposite the Bellagio's north valet.

It's super nice to be able to use it, it's a big time saver over the main valet or self park. It's also right by the spa, diamond lounge, and diamond/seven stars check-in.

You don't get free Spa Services. You get a discount, but they'll still be overpriced as ****. But, the spa is one of the better ones in Las Vegas, normally a day pass would be something like $50. I use it for the gym, sauna, and hot tubs.

Side note, this is where you want to walk if you're walking to the WSOP in the summer and want to spend the least amount of time outside. I can get from this entrance to inside the Rio in about 12 minutes.

Re: Diamond in a Day - CET Total Rewards

Yep, just go to the left of reception towards the Augustus tower and hang a left to the doors just past Starbucks.

Good route to Bellagio poker room when the traffic is light late at night (there is no crossing light)
and enter thru Bellagio North Valet. But be careful.

It's the road to nowhere I always turn into by mistake and then have a hard time getting out of.
