Players Club Comps and Tier Advancement Cheat Sheet

Updated Sept. 29, 2016
This is a quick reference for how you can earn comps and get a higher level tier at some of the Las Vegas players clubs.

As you can see Total Rewards and Identity give you comps and let you get a higher tier by tracking everything.  Mlife and Club Grazie don’t give you comps for purchases and Backstage Pass won’t let you buy your way to a higher tier. Note that Mlife gives credit for lodging, dining and entertainment, but not retail purchases.

The earning rates for Club Grazie will vary with the game. The rates I used are a reasonable estimate.

For more details on accrual rates and Tier status, visit my posts for each Players Club.

Club Grazie Players Club for the Venetian and Palazzo

Today I tackle the Venetian and Palazzo’s Club Grazie players club.
Like many players clubs, Club Grazie does give you some perks just for signing up. They also let you earn comps and improve your tier status through room charges.

That practice was standard across Las Vegas until a few years ago. It is worth noting that even though table game based comps are tracked differently, they can still be banked for a year and saved for future trips.

I was at Planet Hollywood recently and was able to take a picture of the desk copy of the list of free shows for Diamond and Seven Stars players and 2-for-1’s for Platinum players.  The list hasn’t changed much since my last update.

The picture is a little blurry, so here is the current list: Continue reading Total Rewards Free Shows for premium tiers update

The Cosmopolitan’s Identity Players Club

This page is no longer up to date. It is here only for archival purposes. Please visit The Cosmopolitan’s New Identity Players Club page for the latest details.


Unlike most of the casino/hotel/resorts in Las Vegas, The Cosmopolitan is primarily focused on dining and nightlife. That is the image they created and that is what people go there for. The Identity players club reflects that focus. Just like Total Rewards, Mlife, Club Grazie and Backstage Pass, Identity gives you comps and/or tier points for purchases as well as gaming.

Earning Identity Points
$1.50 through a slot machine = 1 Identity Point
$7.50 through a video poker machine = 1 Identity Point
$20 table game bet = 1 Identity Point
$1 of lodging, dining or retail purchase = 5 Identity Points Continue reading The Cosmopolitan’s Identity Players Club
