We just booked last month through Premier desk using a referral from our friends. We didn't get any discounted rates because we booked in Bash tower but was told we would still get all the benefits that members would get. Now, if TTR is talking about taking away the incentives then why should I waste my time listening to their presentation. We still get access to rooftop area and butler service (which never showed up on last visit) just not premium alcohol (brought our own last time). One of the main reasons for us booking through Premier was for us to see what membership would be like. I know some people are posting that they did get the black bands but will that still be available in November when we get there?
