Title: Spg becoming partners with total rewards
Post by: miles lover on December 31, 2013, 12:37:34 AM
On January 9, 2014 spg and total rewards casino will become partners. Spg didn't announce how much they will cost yet. Being that casinos in general are pretty cheap it better be pretty low.
While the highest level status of total rewards can get a gold status by spg a spg members status won't convert at all . what nerve !!

Looks like you can get nights from stays at TR properties.  Since they often have free nights can be good for mattress runs...

If u sign up for a tr card and play for a half hr on slot machines u can get 2 free nights in their properties 1 in Atlantic city and one in Vegas. For that half hr u can play penny slot machines which u won't lose more then 1 buck .( if u wait in between each spin) That's about 50 cents per room not to shaby !!!

Question is if they'll count "free" night.

Earn SPG Points:

As of today, registered SPG members can earn 2 Starpoints for every eligible $1 charged to their hotel folio at Caesars Entertainment hotels. Plus, registered SPG members earn credit toward SPG elite qualification for redeemed and paid Caesars Entertainment stays, up to 10 nights per calendar year.  You can register now to link your Total Rewards and SPG accounts.  You will need a Total Rewards number to register.

Redeem SPG Points:

As of today, you can also redeem SPG points for stays at participating Caesar’s Hotels.  The award chart for redemptions was not available until today, and frankly I don’t think there is an award chart.  Likely that is because the points price is variable based on the current room rates at the Caesars Participating Hotel on the applicable dates.  Ugh.  You can search for hotel dates to see the points prices on this site.  The points prices seem often on the high side, if you value SPG points at somewhere between 2 – 2.5 cents each as many people do.

Here are a few examples of sample points prices:

Rio All Suites Hotel: Wednesday January 22, 2014 4,500 SPG points

Caesar’s Palace: Thursday January 30, 2014 12,500 SPG points

Planet Hollywood: Wednesday June 18, 2014 12,500 SPG points

Harvey’s Lake Tahoe: Saturday January 25, 2014 15,500 SPG points

Nobu: Wednesday March 3, 2014 72,000 SPG points

Is this an automatic comp or it needs to be requested? Can this comp be referenced if there's an issue?

that was their comp for a while don't know for sure if its still going on but I assume so. Casino's Always want new customers know ..
When I signed up for my card they gave it to me automatic.

Caesars & Starwood relationship over the years is the typical case of מחזיר גרושתו or משלחה והיא חוזרת
