Thanks!

I'm headed to AC tomorrow. Staying at Caesars comp'd Sunday and Monday. Including room rates, resort fees, and taxes I am saving just under $300. That doesn't count the value in free drinks after I pay $10 to get into the diamond lounge and eat!

Thanks FoundersCard!

Thanks for all the PMs. I went ahead and signed up for a $295 for 1 yr + $95.

Just an update on the two current (best) deals for 1 year :

$295 + $95 initiation fee. (which is basically $390)
and my "regular deal" which is $395 (waiver of initiation fee)

The misleading part about the $295 mentioned (for 1 year), is that there is an initiation fee for all of those (1 year) sign-ups. Just verified that with FoundersCard.

But, there is still a 2 year deal ($295 x 2 prepaid) that gets a waiver of the initiation fee. (and is there "truly" a $295 yearly rate)

Confirmed upgraded to Diamond on my TR page (which looks funny with the "TR Points: 0" right underneath it). Success all around - well, will be true success when I get the $100 restaurant credit, but I'm hopeful.
You and the previous poster must have happened to submit during a slow week. I submitted on May 26 and was given an estimate of June 17th. I'm hoping I'll get lucky and get it before then but it looks like I'll be gambling on an upgrade by booking a trip next week with checkout on the 17th. I'm hoping that at the latest, Diamond status pops up on June 17th and I'm also hoping if that's the case, I'll be able to get the previous days resort fees comped when I check out.

Obviously, if it happens to post sooner (two weeks will be in a few days) or even just 2-3 days before, I'll get awesome value as I definitely won't have to pay resort fees, and I can use the Diamond lounge and get the free show tickets.

The only reason I'm probably going to book without the upgrade posting is that I have someone to split the room with so the $15 per person loss be night is somewhat palatable.

I once gained Platinum status during a stay (back when Platinum waived the resort fee) and had no hassle getting the resort fee removed on checkout (this was at Bally's LV). So as long as your account shows Diamond by the 17th, I'd wager you'll be fine.

I bet they'll get it done sooner than their estimate, and if you're checking out that date my guess is that you'll be able to get the resort fees waived, at least for the number of days you've been Diamond.

[EDITED: I exchanged email with FC - this will not work for Diamond or HHonors etc during the trial month - would have been too good to be true]

I just got my physical FoundersCard in the mail. Along with it came a "VIP Trial Membership for one lucky person in your trusted membership". Has anyone used this to get a month's FC membership and parlayed that into a year's Diamond status on TR? If so, how long did it take from application to Diamond, and did they then cancel their FC membership?

Can someone PM me a referral? I would like to pay $295 a year. In the past pages, people gave codes that remove the initiation or 100 AMEX GC. Is that deal still there so I can only pay $295 today?

Just an update: my Diamond status processed on Monday June 13. As I stated above, I was emailed the June 17 date as my expected date. I was gold status when I checked in the morning June 13 and Diamond when I checked in the afternoon.

I submitted my request on 6/9 and got the confirmation email I was upgraded on 6/14. Very fast for me.

So you were processed in -5 days??

That's pretty cool. I guess time really is relevant.

Honestly if that was the case I'd ask if he had the lotto numbers.

Sorry about that, meant to say I applied 6/9 and got approved 6/14. Edited the original post.
