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.
