I don't have anything specific to this year but can tell you the last +/- five years that I've had the card there is worry this time of year and it always gets renewed. Basically, I've stopped paying attention and just assume it will get done....of course, I could be wrong someday but will ride the FC as long as I can for this perk.

I've read the posts from last year and I'd like to know what the difference is between getting diamond status with Wyndham Business credit card and with the Founders Card, in terms of benefits:
Is the celebration dinner and the 4-night stay at the Atlantis hotel in the Bahamas available for the Founders Card as well? Are there any other benefits that I wouldn't get with my Founders Card status?

A couple years ago they made several Diamond levels. I'm pretty sure with the FC match you don't get the 4-nights. I thought I read somewhere that the Celebration Dinner was going away with FC in 2024. I'm not really sure about the Wyndham match.

By far my biggest perk is the waived resort fees. I think they're up around $50/night now so it really only takes a few nights to get what I pay for the FC. Add in parking, speedy check-in and potentially better rooms/rates and I really only need to go to Vegas once/year and the FC pays for itself.

What's the cheapest price for Founders Card? I'm trying to get a P2 on Caesar Diamond, I just booked 2 rooms and the 1st room is $100+, and the 2nd room is $600+ (because no Diamond). P2 has no access to US credit card (Barclay Wyndham) so Founders Card may be the only viable route to get Caesar Diamond status.

I also got the JetBlue Founders Card (which is terrible), but they claim I can upgrade for $295 to get ELITE version, which comes with complementary extra user. Can anyone verify if this is a full-fledged actual membership for the extra user that has Caesar Diamond match?

Diamond status at Caesars really doesn't help much with base room rates. It just gets you out of the ridiculous resort fees. Rates are generally based on past gaming activity.

can we confirm about the $100 dinner going away or not? I may apply for this card but that would be a big reason I would

Not sure there's a way to know until you go ask at the hotel. You might be able to call and get someone who knows. They used to have dedicated rewards desks in all the casinos but most (all?) have gone away and it's just handled through the main cage.

I'm not sure since I have been a member for a long time. Hopefully you will have enough time before your trip.

Just sent the match request in yesterday to Caesars. Said February 22 due to where I am in the queue. That is in the middle of my trip so not the worst to get resort fees off but celebration dinner wouldnít load probably and that would suck a bit. Hopefully itís quicker!

Yeah, that's a lot longer than it was for me and what I've seen reported here. Hopefully, they are just giving you that as a worst-case. I think it's usually 10 days or so.

Hoping so too! Heard that it takes another 7-10 days for the celebration dinner to show up too. We are 24 days from our trip so hopefully itíll line up. Iíll update

Not sure you need a code... have you tried emailing or calling them? I'd just reach out and tell them you see people getting 295 and will do it for that. I've even heard rumors of 195.
