Ever innovative Caesars Entertainment and Rewards Network, a leading operator of dining rewards programs, have launched yet another new benefit for Total Rewards club members – Total Rewards Dining. By dining at over 11,000 participating restaurants, bars and clubs nationwide, Total Rewards Dining members earn Reward Credits that are redeemable at Caesars Entertainment-owned resorts, retail outlets, restaurants and spas.
For a limited time, Total Rewards Dining members will earn three Reward Credits – an increase of two points – for every dollar they spend at participating restaurants, bars and clubs. Members simply register their credit or debit cards and pay for their meals at program restaurants and instantly begin earning points. The process is simple and seamless, with no additional loyalty cards to remember.
In addition, Total Rewards Dining members who are also Total Rewards Visa cardholders have extra incentive to dine. Every dollar spent at participating restaurants will earn them five Reward Credits – up from the standard three – for an introductory period.
“We are extremely excited for the opportunity to partner with one of the world’s premier casino-entertainment operators, offering over 10 million Total Rewards members the opportunity to earn Reward Credits for dining at more than 11,000 fantastic restaurants, bars, and clubs nationwide,” said Dan Kazan, CEO of Rewards Network. “As the Caesars Entertainment brand continues to grow both nationally and internationally, Rewards Network enriches the Total Rewards experience by simply doing what it does best.”
“Rewards Network offers something no other company can provide – rewards for dining at a nationwide network of leading restaurants,” said Bob Morse, president of hospitality for Caesars Entertainment. “We are thrilled to offer our loyalty members such unparalleled restaurant offerings through Total Rewards Dining, in addition to all the other benefits and opportunities they enjoy at our resorts every day.”
There are four distinct levels, or tiers, of Total Rewards membership. The more you play, the more Tier Credits you’ll earn and unlock more benefits. All Total Rewards members upon joining immediately enjoy Gold status (tier) benefits at all casinos. Platinum status begins at 5,000 credits, Diamond at 15,000 and Seven Stars at 150,000, all accumulated within a calendar year, all earning greater benefits at each higher level.
Five dollars coin-in on most slots and $10 coin-in on most video poker machines equal (at least) one base Reward Credit. Some higher-payback video poker machines require $25 coin-in for one tier credit. Some machines have lower earn rates and these games are clearly marked with the different rate.
One hundred Reward Credits equal $1 in comp value. Using Reward Credits for free slot play is based on your tier status as follows: 125 Reward Credits equal $1 for Seven Stars, 175 equal $1 for Diamond and 200 equal $1 for Platinum and Gold. Reward Credits expire unless at least one Reward Credit is added every six months.
Reward Credits can be used for most anything in the hotels including rooms, dining, shopping, shows, golf, spa treatments and much more. You can even use Reward Credits to buy into the official World Series of Poker. In addition to earning regular Tier Credits, players earn gift points that can be used at an annual holiday shopping event held every November and December in Las Vegas.
Additional ways to earn Reward Credits include playing table games and live poker based on type of game, your average bet and how long you play. Earn one Reward Credit for every $1 spent on any participating hotel accommodation and one for every $1 spent at participating restaurants. You also earn one Reward Credit for every $1 spent for shopping and at any participating outlet.
