FoundersCard is a membership community of entrepreneurs and senior-level professionals. It offers discounts and other VIP perks to members for a $595 annual fee. The best benefit of FoundersCard was that it provided Caesars Rewards Diamond status. That benefit is going away and I see no other reason to keep the membership.

The membership offers other travel benefits like Hilton Honors™ Gold status, IHG® One Rewards Gold Elite status, a fast-track to Marriott Bonvoy® Platinum status, and discounts at several airlines like Delta Air Lines and United Airlines. None of this held any value for me as I either already had the same status or higher in the programs offered.

Caesars Diamond

The one sweet spot was Caesars Rewards Diamond status. This offered an annual $100 celebration dinner at a host of restaurants in Las Vegas, room comps, waived resort fees, and more. It’s a valuable status and without it being included there is no reason for me to pay for my FoundersCard membership. I’ve been a member since 2015, but this will be the last year unless FoundersCard finds some other compelling benefit.

Anthony’s Take: Goodbye, Diamond and au revoir, FoundersCard. This was the benefit worth paying the annual fee for and without it, the membership is nothing more than a shiny piece of wallet candy.
