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.

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

Las Vegas Diamond Lounges

Total Rewards Diamond Lounges are private VIP lounges where Diamond and Seven Stars members can relax, get a free drink and a snack away from the casino floor. The specifics vary from lounge to lounge, but as a general rule they have a small bar, tables with cocktail service and a small buffet featuring chips and veggies throughout the day and  a small hot food assortment during dinner hours.
