Total Rewards now gives you a discount when dining at their buffets, cafes and many other casual dining spots. The program is currently in effect at all Caesars Entertainment buffets (like Carnival World Buffet at the Rio and Flavors, The Buffet at Harrah’s) and most of the cafes. The program should be fully implemented by April 1, 2012.
The discounted prices are clearly marked on the menus. As a general rule, if the casino owns the restaurant you can probably get a discount by showing your Total Rewards card. This includes places like the All American Bar & Grille at the Rio and Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill at Harrah’s in addition to the buffets and cafes. Planet Dailies, the cafe at Planet Hollywood is not participating.
Another way to look at this is that Caesars Entertainment owned restaurants in Las Vegas are going to charge you more if you don’t join their Total Rewards players club. The Total Rewards card is free and there is no obligation to gamble in order to get the discounted price.
