hey folks. i'd like to do this to get diamond status for 2019 - Jan 2020. (or beyond.) ideally, it would be great if i could get the diamond match before Jan 17 since I'm going to Vegas then. (not a big deal though, more important to have it during summer and Jan 2020.) what's my best play given this info? sign up for FC now or wait until 2019?

Definitely wait. Not worth doing it for barely 2 months, worst case. It's a gamble, no doubt. They may renew. They may not.

You might want to point out that if they are using it for back door Diamond status with CET, it will expire on Jan 31 2019 with no guarantee of renewell. Also, Diamond status alone no longer gets you free entry into the Diamond lounges, you can still get in, just have to pay $10 per visit (per person).

I know you would not want to mislead anyone.

It's almost time for the annual speculation about FC/CET renewal. CET has already made changes to the program to take away some of the perks for those that don't gamble enough for "full" Diamond card status. My guess is they keep the arrangement, it still gets people in the door, it still fills the hotel rooms (yes they lose the resort fees, but if you're staying, you're spending money). Or, they kick FC to the curb and tell all of us freeloaders to start gambling again if we want the status.

If you are 100% booked for rooms at CET property Jan 17th then it will probably be worth it to sign up for FC for the Diamond Perks.. Waived resort fees will save you 40.00 per night. You'll also be able to use the 100 dollar celebration dinner. and 2 free show tickets.
Then Jan 31st it will reset and you may or maynot be downgraded to Gold and upgraded back to Diamond again if/when FC renews their contract with CET which would happen pretty quickly.

It would depend on how many nights you are staying. The shows are mid tier at best and I put zero value in them. Yes, the $100 food voucher helps, but if you are getting the FC solely for the CET Diamond perk, and the partnership is not renewed, keep this in mind from the Founderscard website....
