    .25% of what? The only cash back you're going to get is as part of an upfront deal if you're an international player or as an airfare reimbursement based on actual loss or large theo and unused comps.

    Some casinos will give cash back based on coin-in. For example, assume 1 dollar coin-in equals 1 point. If you accrue $1,000 coin-in = 1,000 points, they may give you $1.00 to "cash in" these 1,000 points.

    In this scenario, it'd be 0.1% cash back. Of course, $1 is somewhat meaningless in this example, but if you accrue many thousands and thousands of points, it may be helpful.

    I believe that this is the way Boyd does it. But they give you this option OR you can spend the points on food and get a 40% discount (I choose the latter).

    I've seen some machines at some Boyd properties (Sam's Town, Gold Coast) where you can exchange points right on the machine for freeplay... 5,000 points for $5.00, for example. I've done that, too.

    I don't accrue points at other properties enough to speak for other companies, though... Though I do know at CET properties, "Tier Credits" can be reedemeed at the gift shop for 1 penny per.... For example, a $4 beer can be "free" for a 400 tier credits redemption.
