You can if you're 7* -- see post 8 above.

Unless you are 7* you can't use your Diamond Dinner at Mon Abi Gabi and if you pay in points it will cost you 200 reward credits per $1 vs 100 per $1 at Caesars owned restaurants.

We had 4 diamond dinners ( 2 each ) this year and on our most recent trip used one our Diamond dinners at Raos and one at Bugsy and Myers..................both were excellent but the bill was about $150 at each so we also used points.

Check at the players desk, you probably have 2 dinners if you didn't use any in 2020

I had looked at Bally's Sterling Buffet, but they don't accept it there. We're not particularly looking for a buffet. In fact, my guess is that wifey will probably reject most buffets. Just looking for ideas and recommendations. . .
If you mean your specific Diamond status will expire in January and you have a Wyndham account it's very easy to keep you Diamond status at CET ( and Wyndham) as they have staggered expiration dates. This won't save this years DD but you will get another next year as well as other Diamond benefits

Complete Caesar's Rewards noob here. I forgot I status matched Wyndham to Caesar's Diamond but realize I still have it (I see it's expiring end of Jan 2022 though) and I don't think my Wyndham has been extended as I status matched from Marriott. I was planning on going to see a Detroit Lion's game and realized I could perhaps stay and take my family out at the Caesar's in Windsor the Saturday night prior through this. Few questions:

- It seems I should have 2 celebration dinners that I should use by end of Jan 2022 based on everyone's comments. How can I confirm this? I guess I just have to go to the players desk when physically at Caesar's in Windsor? No other way? Also, what do I have to bring to the players desk? Just an ID?
- What's the success rate to redeem both celebration dinners on the same meal (i.e. $100 + $100 credit). I see online it says the second dinner is posted after a few weeks but I've also read that people have been able to use both immediately (although they had to be used on different meals). Probably taking wife and parents
- Any additional discounts/tips for staying at a Caesar's hotels? The rates at the Caesar's in Windsor even when booking through the app seem quite high ($300/night).

On 1/2/2022 your Wyndham status will drop from Diamond..............match your CET status to get Wyndham Diamond back......................on 2/2/2022 watch Wyndham Diamond status to CET and you will have Diamond again

Yes. My Wyndham status already dropped. May have been due to inactivity given the pandemic. I do see I can status match it again to Caesars in Jan 2022. And then rewatch Wyndham To Caesars when it drops in Feb 2022. Nearly status matched to higher Wyndham status this December and then realized that would be a critical mistake given it'd reset end of the calendar year.

Any thoughts on how I can confirm my dining credit?

CET and Wyndham are partners, you can match status back and forth anytime you like.

It's not the same as say matching Marriott status to get Wyndham Diamond and then Wyndham to CET.

Since January is 16 days away you may as well just wait but as long as you have Diamond status in one program you can match it to the other at any time.

AFAIK the only way to check Diamond Dinners is at the players desk

Nothing to really check if you were Diamond previous year and didn't use it. Can call CR to verify for sure or if you receive emails you should've gotten an email already that states "Use benefits before they're gone..." or something like that.

Takeout?

Anyone have experience during the pandemic using this credit for takeout rather than dine-in?

Edit: It looks like it's not valid for takeout, but any conflicting experiences in practice?

I assume the certificate can be used for lunch as well?

Should be good for any meal, I've just put my Caesar's card with my CC and say I'd like to use my $100. To answer OP, I'm NOLA native and have used mine at The Steakhouse in Harrah's casino (soon to be Caesar's) whenever I can't make it to Vegas. Not to be confused with BH steak on Fulton (closer to the Harrah's hotel) which is not eligible for the credit.

The celebration dinner credit seems to have quietly gone away if status matched.

"For members who qualified for Diamond and Seven Stars based on their 2021 Tier Score, the 2021 Celebration Dinner will be added on 2/1/21."

I'm status matched and was able to use one from 2020 in May 2021 and my 2021 one on Jan 2 2022.

I guess I may not get another one if they meant 2/1/22 instead of 21, but I'll be interested to try.

Several DPs saying not there. One was even told in a smug way, "You're matched with Wyndham, try earning it."

We need DP for any status matched diamond who used celebration dinner credit in 2022 after January.

Bummer, but figured they'd catch on at some point.

As long as they dont start charging me resort fees I'll survive.
