Caesars Rewards Diamond Status – 2021 Update

Caesars Rewards Diamond Status – 2021 Update

Caesars Rewards is not what it used to be.  Caesars Entertainment was purchased by Eldorado and it seems that they are cutting costs left and right. In my opinion, they are making visiting Caesars Rewards properties a lot less pleasant and appealing.  Here are a few things that have changed.

No Laurel Lounges

All Laurel Lounge locations in Las Vegas remain closed.  If you are a Diamond elite, you are out of luck.  Those with Diamond Plus (or above) can swipe their card at a kiosk and get four coupons each day for free beverages.  The coupons expire that day at 11:59pm.  Seven Star elites also get one $10 food coupon per day.

The list of locations where you can redeem the coupons is available here.

No Free Show Tickets

One of my favorite perks of Caesars Rewards Diamond status was the free show benefit.  Even as shows have reopened in Las Vegas at full capacity, the free show benefit has not returned.  I think it is unlikely that this benefit will ever return, but I hope to be proved wrong.

Instead they are offering free tickets to see the Real Bodies exhibit at Bally’s.  I also noticed when I logged in to the kiosk as a Diamond Plus I received an offer for two free High Roller tickets; however this isn’t a listed benefit for all Diamonds.

No Spa Access

Historically Caesar Diamond elites could get a spa day pass at a discount (or for free).  While anyone can book treatments, the facilities (hot tubs, steam rooms, sauna, etc) remain closed.

However there are still few benefits to having elite status:

$100 Celebration Dinner

One benefit that remains intact is the $100 annual Celebration Dinner.  The locations seem to be always changing, but I was able to find this list (current as of July, 2021).

No Resort Fees

Probably the best benefit of Caesars Rewards Diamond status is that you never have to pay resort fees.  These fees are often around $50 per night.  When I get comped nights at M life properties, I still have to pay this fee.  Not so at Caesars properties.

Other Perks

There are a few other minor perks such as free parking, priority lines, and some discounts.
