I believe the only path is to use a referral and then negotiate a 2-year deal after using a referral code for a trial.

I'd settle for 395 w no fee, I guess. Might as well keep it in the FT family if the person giving the referral gets a benefit too.

You basically have to use your preferred referral code and then negotiate the price. I believe they are quite negotiable on the $395, even though the current price is $495. I do not follow it very closely anymore. Caesars runs 5x and 10x tier multipliers (different periods throughout the year), and if you are any level of recreational gambler, it is easier to achieve Diamond Status in 2022 than it has been at any time in the past.

This. Have already comfortably requalified for Diamond despite the loss of a lot of Tier Credits that I would have earned in past years before Caesars sold off LaD.

Now whether that Diamond status actually provides anything of value in 2023 is an entirely different story!

Give that MGM gold now provides a $100 dinner and no resort fees I don't expect any negative changes at CET for Diamond

I do have reservations in 2023 booked at MGM Grand and Paris in case one decides to change some rules.

But, just to be clear, you DO NOT get the $100 dinner for MGM Gold if you match to MGM Gold (via Hyatt or otherwise). The $100 dinner benefit is ONLY for "earned MGM Rewards Gold."

I am aware of that, I was comparing tier levels ( Gold vs Diamond) and how IMO the benefits may or may not change in 2023.

MGM has so many other perks ( free play, $$ off meals, BOGO , etc ) via my vegas not getting the $100 dinner isn't that big of a deal, for us the savings is in waived resort fees and of course much faster check in.

Hopefully things stay the same we keep both ( via Hyatt and Wyndham) in 2023

I figured that you were aware, but it's a valid point to remind folks -- since many still do not seem to realize.

I highly doubt there will be many changes for MGM Rewards since the main changes and rebrand were completed this year. I expect Caesars Rewards to end Diamond matching (re-matching) except for perhaps, Wyndham Credit Card folks.

I do agree, that waived resort fees are the "biggest deal." I seldom bring MyVegas into the conversation since it's just not of interest for many to deal with it, but I agree it's a great program - even if, not as "great" as it was years ago.

We have the Wyndham Business Cards and match MGM from Hyatt..........thus why we have a reservation at Horseshoe and MGM for Memorial Day week, if we can get MGM Gold we will probably stay there.......more about why down my reply.

We still get $175 ( wife bought some chips years ago ugh, lol so she gets 4 awards) in free play via My Vegas every trip (even if not staying at a MGM property) plus BOGO at Wolfgang Puck in MGM and Lupo ( MB) and the Nine Fine Irishmen BOGO is nice. The $20 off $40 at Public House, Diablos and Vagabond are also good but often the lines are too long at the rewards desk/cage at Excal/Luxor.

I also noticed ( at MGM at least ) if you have 3 paid nights ( even if those nights are like $25 and you can also have comp nights but 3 nights have to be paid ) the person whose name the room is in can use regular my VEGAS free play so my wife can get $200 in free play via my vegas using the $100, $50 and $25 FP and $25 Konami. I'm not sure if it's true but we were told go the rewards desk on one of your paid nights to redeem. If they say no we just use 4 My Konami free play but f course have to stop at 4 different MGM properties to redeem

I haven't heard much about it and in case you aren't aware you can get 12K LP per day very easy if you have an android tablet. I have no idea why but it only seems to work on android tablets...........I just set it at 27K per spin ( lowest it can go) and gives me LP's for about an hour which is 4k LP. I do this for slots, Konami and Black jack so 12K per day or 84K per week.............adds up as we both have close to 5 million LP. It's been going on for nearly a year now and before this we used to struggle to get the 400K or so we each needed per trip. Now I don't even bother doing the daily spins or collecting points around the strip on my Vegas slots.

I don't think this is possible....names have to match.

OK I think I made a slight typo..............my wife also has ~ 5 million LP so she uses her own points

This was supposed to say "regular my VEGAS free play" as opposed to My Konami.............the typo made it seem lie she was using my LP
