Founderscard Extends Caesars Rewards Partnership

We have talked about Founderscard quite a bit in the past (our full review) and one of the better perks of membership is their partnership with Caesars Rewards. Well, the good news for current and future Founderscard members, the Caesars Rewards partnership has been extended for another year.  With this partnership all Founderscard members can get Caesars Rewards Diamond status without spending a dime in a casino. Diamond status comes with a lot of perks, although some have been removed for partnership status earners. Let’s take a look.

Caesars Rewards Partnership

Here is what you get for Caesars Rewards from Founderscard:

  • Complimentary Diamond Caesars Rewards Status, now through Jan of 2022
  • Exclusive Member Rates of 20% off most rooms at select properties

The Fine Print

Diamond upgrade valid through January 31, 2022. This upgrade does not include Diamond Plus or Diamond Elite benefits, and does not grant you tier credits.

Must be 21+ to redeem this benefit.

Please allow up to 3 weeks from the time you submit your request for the Diamond status upgrade to process. We are unable to expedite this process. You will receive an email directly from Founderscard when we have received your request for the upgrade, along with an estimated date as to when you can expect the upgrade to be processed. A second email will be sent as soon as the upgrade has been processed, at which point you can visit a Caesars Rewards desk to collect your Diamond credentials.


What Does Caesars Diamond Status Get You?

Once you get upgraded to Diamond status you will get the following perks:

You no longer get the Atlantis package (now based on tier credit earning), although that may be a good thing.  And lounge access was downgraded a few years ago where you need to pay $10 in reward credits to enter if you haven’t earned 25,000 tier credits in the current, or previous, year.

Other Ways To Get Caesars Diamond Status

Because of Wyndham’s partnership with Caesars Rewards you can match top tier Wyndham status to Caesars Diamond status.  I give you more details on that here. It used to be much easier when Wyndham matched other hotel status but that went away early last year.  But if you currently have top tier status with Caesars Rewards or Wyndham then you can match it back and forth and play it that way.

The other way to get Caesars Diamond status, without gambling, is through the Wyndham Business card. The current welcome offer for the card also includes Wyndham Diamond status, which you can then match over to Caesars Rewards Diamond.

If neither of those options work for you then Founderscard is your only option for achieving status without actually gambling.

Founderscard Extends Caesars Rewards Partnership – Final Thoughts

As you can see Founderscard has a lot to offer, but if it is right for you depends on your habits and needs. The fact that they also renewed the partnership with Caesars Rewards is another feather in their cap for sure.  Many people list this as their favorite perk.

If you have an upcoming trip to Vegas, and could stay at a Caesars property, Founderscard is worth considering. The savings in resort fees on one longer trip alone covers most of the membership cost.  Then you throw in the celebration dinner, free parking, show tickets, cutting the lines and you could come out ahead after your trip.

FoundersCard extends Caesars Rewards partnership, does that make you more likely to give it a try?

  1. Do you need to sign up for Founders Club Elite benefits to get the Caesars Diamond or does the plain vanilla membership come with all the Caesars benefits?

  2. I see that Caesars Rewards now allows you to set up a players card account online instead of only at their casino location. So if we are approved for FoundersCard, and we sign up for a Caesars Rewards card online now too, and then ask Founders to process it, would we have access to Diamond Celebration etc. for a Vegas trip 2 months from now? I know it used to be that you needed to get to Vegas and then set up your Caesars card, and then you couldnt use Diamond perks thst trip because it took 3 weeks for Founders to process the diamond approval.

  3. Caesars Diamond also can get up to 20% discount on Norweigen, Oceania and Regent cruises. It doesn’t sound big but cruise lines don’t give out big discounts off the lowest rates usually anyway unless you have a good travel agent.

  4. This is timely as I was just thinking about this a few days ago. I’d be curious to know what your take/analysis is on the Caesars credit card. I was looking to book a Caesars stay a few days ago and the credit card offer popped up on my screen. I had never really considered it before, but it had a 10,000 reward credit welcome offer for $750 spend. At first I just ignored the offer, but like you mention in this article, if you are a matched/comped Diamond member and want to go to the Diamond Lounge, you have to pay 1,000 reward credits. I know the Diamond Lounges are closed right now, but the credit card offer got me thinking of it as 10 lounge visits (or 5 visits of two people). So maybe that is worth more than the face value of $100. Do you see what I mean? It’s not a 100k Amex Plat offer, but realistically, if you have a few drinks at the lounge, you are getting more than $10 value. And with not many ways to earn RC’s outside of spending at Caesars or gambling, it might be something to consider for a low roller like me.

    • If you are not earning the reward credits by gambling but still want to take advantage of the lounge I would suggest grabbing one of the Wyndham cards instead. You can transfer Wyndham points to Caesars Rewards credits at a 1 to 1 basis in 10K chunks (up to 30K per year). I think the current offer on the personal card is 45K after $1000 in spend. That is like getting 45 lounge passes right there 🙂

      The no fee card is 30K after 1K spend. The 45K is probably the better deal for most even with the $75 annual fee the first year.
