    It looks like Caesars had started updating the 2015 Great Gift Wrap Up web site.

    I am curious to see how much they change the point values for the gift cards this year.

    My GGWU points are about double my earned TCs (not counting bonuses).

    I must have played on some of the “Bonus Days” without realizing it. I thought you had to be booked on the Bonus offers, but I usually book under free play or shopping/gift cards.

    How do your current GGWU points compare with your Tier Credits?

    As an FYI, those GGWU bonus days in Vegas where they offer you 42500 ( going from memory on the number), for just showing up, can be stacked with another offer. I think Vegas has those bonus offers 4 times/year. Your host can stack your offers. You have to go to the TR desk to have them swipe your card to get the GGWU bonus credits.

    The December event is the same weekend as mLifes event, so I can kill two birds with one stone.

    My GGWU points are the same as my actual TC, not counting bonus credits.

    I have no idea how these are calculated. Last year I earned 13,700 ish tier credits but ended up with close to 25,000 points. I didn't go to any events or anything like that. This year, I have 7,800 TC and 5,8000 points, though obviously some of those 7,800 were awarded on the 50% bonus. I plan on going to the November event to use my points (will be my third trip of year, after July) so hopefully I get enough to get something worth it. Last year I just got $100 in freeplay

    Barring bonuses or adjustments it's roughly the number of Rewards Credits that you earn in casinos that encompass CETs "Western District" only, which is California, Arizona, and Nevada. We ended up asking about this because in 2012 we were coincidentally in town, and I actually had enough GGWU points to get a $10 gas card (which was 3500 back then) while my g/f and only about 100 GGWU points, and I didn't think I gambled THAT much more than she did.

    Well, the $3/$6 IP mix game still existed then, and I played it on 3 trips that year, for roughly a total of 30 hours. Poker gets 17 Tier Credits plus 83 Bonus RCs for 100 total RCs per hour. Well the GGWU points were based on that full 100 RCs per hour and added about 30c per hour extra in value for me.
