Free Drink Devaluation for Caesars Diamond

Just learned of a new devaluation of Caesars Rewards Diamond status. One of the nice little perks of Diamond used to be two free drinks at certain bars/restaurants. At the bar in Jack Binion's Steakhouse (Horseshoe SHV) the bartender said this benefit had been discontinued as of a month or so ago.

I'd much rather enjoy a high quality cocktail at the bar of a nice restaurant than a poorly mixed one on the casino floor or in a crowded Diamond Lounge.

Just for kicks and with no evidence whatsoever, I will blame Founders Card freeloaders for this devaluation!

This was never a listed benefit, it's more of an extended courtesy by some bars and restaurants. So a devaluation in that aspect is kind of null since it was never there to begin with.

With no evidence whatsoever also, I don't think FC holders make that big of a dent with CET/CR benefits. If it did, they would've ended that relationship by now. If anything, its the non-stop tier matches they have been doing for the last 3-4 years.

I disagree. When a benefit is consistently available and then discontinued, that's a devaluation. I don't care if the benefit was "listed" or not. It was a real benefit if you knew about it (if memory serves, the information on its availability was publicized on Seven Stars Insider?). It wasn't a series of one-off decisions by some bartenders or servers to be generous. It was policy at those bars and restaurants. And now it's gone.
