Total Rewards Card for Vegas, Baby!

Las Vegas is always changing and that is a great thing. If you go one year then wait a few more years to go back it’s a whole new and exciting adventure. The rewards programs change just as often in Las Vegas as do the bar, casino and hotel ownerships. Total Rewards now covers not just the Bally’s but also Planet Hollywood and Caesar’s.

You earn back everytime you make a purchase anywhere including at malls and even bowling alleys. Earn Rewards Credits in your Total Rewards account managed by Harrah’s Entertainment who owns Harrah’s, Rio, Showboat, Harveys, Horseshoe, Caesars Palace, Grand Casino, Flamingo, Paris, and Bally’s in Las Vegas. The Reward Credits earned through use of your Credit Card will be credited to your Total Rewards account each month. The maximum amount of rewards credits you can earn per month is 40,000 which is equivilent to $40,000 in spending each month. Since you earn 2,500 Total Rewards points with your first transaction on this Visa Card you can get an edge over other people when you goto Vegas or other Harrah’s properties. It will make it look like you have at least some credits in your Total Rewards account and that gets you all kinds of benefits at Casinos.

You must be 18 years of age to be eligible for the credit card but 21 to be involved in the Harrah’s Total Rewards program.

More about the Total Rewards Program:

It is free to enroll in the Total Rewards program from Harrah’s but you better use the program often since it does expire.  Reward Credits are valid as long as at least one Reward Credit is earned every six months. If no Reward Credits are earned within a six-month period, the entire Reward Credit account balance will expire.  Total Rewards Credits are not transferable.

Harrah’s Total Rewards Diamond and Platinum members now receive all-new perks and benefits including a free hotel stay in Las Vegas plus exclusive slot tournament entry,  Two for One show tickets in destinations like Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe, and New Orleans, Special birthday gifts, Reward Credit Multiplier Days (not available at Harrah’s Cherokee), 30% off of select Reward catalog merchandise at participating casinos, and Exclusive gifts for 2006 tier card renewals.

Special Events with the Harrah’s Total Rewards card include invitations to the World Series of Poker.

Will this card from Harrah’s increase your chances of winning?

I doubt it has the power to make you win but it will save you more money so you can “invest” it into your gambling strategy while in Vegas or other resorts where you get Total Rewards.
