Mlife and Total Rewards Tier Comparison 2014

Two years ago I did a post comparing Mlife and Total Rewards tiers. A lot has changed in that time, so I though I would revisit it.

On a very basic level, I view Mlife Pearl and Total Rewards Platinum as being similar and Mlife Gold and Total Rewards Diamond as being similar. Mlife Platinum is also similar to the Total Rewards Diamond level, but with a few more benefits than the Mlife Gold. Mlife Noir and Total Rewards Seven Stars are comparable to each other, but I’m not going to discuss those tiers since they require a very high level of action and are by invitation only.

Getting Around: The South Point Shuttle

The South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa is located far enough from the action of the Strip that if you are staying there or want to visit it for good video poker games and a meal and Steak ‘n Shake you will either want to have a car or familiarize yourself with their shuttle schedule. You could also take an RTC bus, but that requires taking multiple buses before getting to the Strip.

The South Point shuttle is run by Ritz Transportation and is not free. It is $8 for a one day pass. You buy your pass from the driver. Continue reading Getting Around: The South Point Shuttle

The Mirage Overview

updated June 2015

When Steve Wynn opened the Mirage in 1989, it was the most expensive hotel-casino in history and it started the mega-resort era of Las Vegas. The Mirage Poker Room was home to some of the biggest poker games before they moved to the Bellagio. MGM acquired the Mirage in a merger in 2000 which created the MGM/Mirage company which has since become MGM Resorts International.

The iconic volcano in front of the Mirage was redesigned in 2008 and now features a more intensive fire-show as well as music by Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart. It erupts every hour on the hour from 5pm until 11pm. Continue reading The Mirage Overview

Caesars Palace Las Vegas app

I’ve seen a few complaints about the Total Rewards MyTR app no longer working or being offered in the iTunes App Store. I don’t have any information on if or when it will return, but I do have a workaround.  You can use the Caesars Palace Las Vegas app to access to your Total Rewards account from your iPhone or iPad. Beware, though. Some of the other info in the Total Rewards section of the app is very outdated.
