    I just noticed it tonight so it may not be new. Your monthly card score accumulation is posted on the B-connected web site. It is located just beneath your card score and named: "View Card Score History". You can calculate your daily card score by dividing that score by the number of days visited for the month. Remember that when a card is placed in a machine, it will count as being in play for that day.

    You can add the totals for the year and divide it by the number of days that you visited a Boyd casino. Scores are only displayed for the past 12 months. Since accumulation of points depends on the type of VP or slot machine, my belief is that offers are now based on daily Card Scores.

    Thank you HAWJOHN!

    I noticed that about 4 nights ago and thought I was an idiot for not noticing it before! Glad to hear it's new :)

    Yeah, that card score (and the little "picture dial") , as well as your bonus comp points, have been shown on your account pages for a long time. I know that we have been checking it for almost 3 years now.

    *** To edit my above comments ... I was doing too quick of a read, and I missed the emphasis on the new "Score History". My bad ....

    I also just noticed it the other day. A nice addition and you can also see how many points will expire next. Although I have a spreadsheet for that, this makes it easy to check.

    Your Card Score as of March 7, 2014: 60,508
    Card Score expiring on April 1, 2014: 7,569


    So what exactly do I lose? Do the points mean comps?

    You should have 2 point scores. Card Score points expire on a 12 month rolling basis. From your numbers, you will have 52,939 on April 2nd. This is the number Boyd uses to determine your card level (ruby,sapphire,emerald). You should also have a Slot Points balance. These are the comps you have banked. These points don't appear to expire, but don't quote me on that. Slot points are the points you can use for free play, meals and gift shop purchases.

    25,000 = Sapphire so I should be OK with 4 trips looming.

    6400 Slot points. I think that's like $6?

    Yes. 1000 Slot Points = $1.00.

    Thank you. I am a low roller and always wondered about the expiring points. This is very helpful.

    I believe this started on March 1st. I like this new feature. I never knew how much I put through in a day or a trip. Now I can track it.
