Next up in holiday shopping events is the 2017 Grazie Gift Extravaganza at The Venetian and The Palazzo.
If you’ve been a player at either casino this past year, now is the time to cash in! The ultimate shopping experience will be held Nov. 18-26 where you can redeem Grazie Gift Points for a wide variety of exciting gift items. Some of the most popular products will include brand name high-tech electronics, luggage, home accessories and décor, apparel, jewelry, housewares, health and beauty, handbags, crystal and more.
Club Grazie is the loyalty program (slot club) of The Venetian and The Palazzo. One card will work for both properties and combines and shares points. The Grazie card can be used at slot and video poker games to earn both slot rewards and status points, and at table games and in the poker room to have your play rated. You can also use your card at participating partners to earn Status Points and to receive discounts and upgrades.
Grazie members earn one Grazie Gift Point for every dollar of theoretical win on reel and video reel games, as well as on video poker, keno, and table-based video games in addition to regular club points earned. Also receive one Grazie point for every $1 spent at designated retailers.
Points earned at retailers can be redeemed for slot credits, gift cards, cash back, and other amenities, and work toward Grazie status. For each point earned receive one Grazie Gift point for the Extravaganza. To have points added to account, bring receipt to booth within 30 days of making purchase. Grazie Gift Points expire at the conclusion of the annual Extravaganza.
The schedule for this year’s Grazie Gifts event is as follows:
• Saturday, Nov. 18, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
• Sunday, Nov. 19, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The location will be the Bellini and Congress Center ballrooms. The formula for point earning varies by machine type and denomination being played. Coin-in per point also varies based on theoretical game hold and card level. Points are awarded higher and faster to players at higher tiers.
There are three tier levels with all players starting at Grazie level and moving up to Gold after earning 20,000 points, then Platinum after earning 175,000 points. Members earn Status Points on qualifying slot and video poker play and through all charges made to their suite. Members earn Slot Reward points on qualifying slot and video poker play only and can redeem 2,500 Slot Rewards points for $15 free slot play or $15 in comps that can be used at restaurants and other amenities.
Earn Status Points on slot and video poker play, and throughout the resort on suite accommodations, restaurant meals, nightclub drinks, show tickets, spa services, retail purchases and more. Simply charge any purchases made at participating partners back to your guest suite. As status points accrue your status level rises from Grazie to Gold to Platinum, unlocking new benefits, discounts and privileges.
You can check your point balance online at clubgrazie.com, at either Venetian or Palazzo Grazie desk, at any of the available kiosks on the casino floor, or at slot or video poker machines with the IView screen. Show your Grazie card at the tables and your play will be rated. You will then be eligible to receive comps and additional offers. Poker players receive $2 per hour in comps.
Slot Reward Points expire after 12 months without any rated play or purchases. Status Points balances reset to zero on Jan. 1 each year. You must re-qualify for Gold and Platinum levels every 12 months.
New members signing up for Club Grazie can earn extra rewards on their first trip, from $10 free slot play for 500 earned points up to $100 in free slot play for 5,000 points. Visit the Grazie Desk at Venetian or Palazzo for full details. Once an established member, mailers are sent out to both locals and tourists offering free slot play, tournaments, discounts and more, based on level of play.
