Total Rewards Daily Tier Credit Bonuses

In 2013, Total Rewards started a daily Tier Credit Bonuses program which gives you additional Tier Credits for earning certain amounts of Tier Credits in a single casino/gaming day (typically a 24 hour period between 6:00am one day and 5:59am the following morning. Check the Total Rewards desk for the hours at your casino just to be safe).

      • If you earn 500 Tier Credits in one day, you receive 125 bonus Tier Credits
      • If you earn 1000 Tier Credits in one day, you receive 1000 bonus Tier Credits
      • If you earn 2500 Tier Credits in one day, you receive 5000 bonus Tier Credits
      • If you earn 5000 Tier Credits in one day, you receive 10,000 bonus Tier Credits
        Only the highest bonus achieved is awarded.

Earning 2500 Tier Credits plus the 5000 bonus Tier Credits is enough to give you Platinum status in a single day. Earning  5000 Tier Credits plus the 10,000 bonus Tier Credits is enough to give you Diamond status in a single day.

Harrah’s Overview

I consider Harrah’s to be a reliable hotel with a good North-Strip location, giving easy access to The Mirage, Caesars Palace and The Linq. Thanks to the Monorail stop, it also allows for easy access to the Las Vegas Convention Center and  MGM Grand Garden Arena, too.

It was built in 1973 as the Holiday Casino and became Harrah’s in 1992.  Harrah’s has made some changes over the past years. One  of the more notable changes are replacing the cafe with the Fulton Street Food Hall – effectively a nicer food court area (they call it a “chef-driven marketplace”) with fresh salads, sushi, pizza, tacos, sandwiches and a coffee and pastry bar. Another is remodeling many of the Carnaval Tower Rooms and renaming them  Valley Tower Rooms. The remodeled rooms run about $20 more per night than the regular Carnaval Tower rooms.

Total Rewards Free Buffet after 50 Points Promo Extended & Expanded

UPDATE  (March 8):
This promotion ended early   for non-local   players. If you have a Nevada ID, though, you can still take advantage of it through the end of March.


 

At the end of last year, Total Rewards ran a promo at the Rio and Planet Hollywood,  where  you would receive a free buffet after earning 50 points in a day. 50 Points is $500 coin-in on video poker or $250 coin-in for slots. The promo now covers the  Flamingo, Harrah’s, Paris, Planet Hollywood and the Rio and has been extended through March.

After you earn 50 points go to the Total Rewards booth or promotional kiosk at that casino to receive a voucher for a free buffet at any of the participating casinos. It is limited to one redemption per card, per day, but you can use it multiple times through the end of March.


The LINQ Hotel and Casino

I stayed there so you don’t have to.
OK. That might be a bit harsh, but it is how I feel about The LINQ Hotel.  I started to write this review months ago, but stopped because of my strong negative feelings about the hotel.  Months later I still feel the same way, so here’s the review.

The LINQ Hotel and Casino is the former Imperial Palace, which  Harrah’s/Caesars Entertainment bought in 2005. It was named The Quad for a little over a year, too, when Caesars’ license for the Imperial Palace name expired.  It had been a low-roller favorite for as long as I can remember. It had a lot of kitsch going for it and was one of the locations for the Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery movie. Continue reading The LINQ Hotel and Casino
