    i read someones trip report and they said they had 400,000 reward credits! that is a lot.

    how many do you have? not tier credits just reward credits you can use to buy things.

    i have 26,280 i got 10,000 from the visa and the rest from gambling between me and my mom who gambles on my card sometimes so i can get comps.

    That was me with 400k, I empty them out when I find the rare 1:1 freeplay redemption promo. I also play a lot of 10x days. I know people with over 1,500,000.

    I have about 158,000 and my husband has 160,000---but we really don't do that many expensive restaurants and our rooms are free---we usually use them for gift items before the holidays and odds and ends when we are on a trip

    I only accumulate RCs in AC and NOLA as I'm hooked on Aria in Las Vegas.
    They emptied my account last time in AC and I only have 5K now.
    I actually have no idea what the value of that is in terms of paying for dinner at a restaurant.
    Does 5K equal $50 credit toward in house dining?
    I should probably know since I've been a Diamond for years but always charge stuff to my room and it all gets wiped out at checkout.

    As CET debt payments get closer to due (~2015) I would think about trimming that RC balance down eventually. However with CET's Vegas debacle over tier points for full-pay VP as discussed in your excellent TR, I have a feeling you might be trying to trim that huge balance in the near future anyway.

    I thank God that I was able to get ~90% of the value of my player's points when PokerStars shut down in the US. When they shut down, they forced us to turn the points directly into cash, and higher statuses got a higher conversion rate. I was a "Supernova" there, somewhat between the equivalent of a Diamond/Seven Stars, and had the highest conversion rate. Lower ranked players get a lot less back (lowest tiers closer to 60%). But in reality, they owed us nothing and could have just taken my near $4000 of player point value. I am sure in the TR rules, there is "everything is subject to change" cause. There definitely was at PokerStars, but they didn't do a total "smash and grab", fortunately for me, points were about 30% of my bankroll and were useful for the tax payment...:grrr:

    As for this low roller, I have about 61k RCs left. 95% of my RCs from the last two years have come from the "Race to Rewards", which they unfortunately did not continue for this year. :cry: I will be spending about 13k of these in a few weeks for weekend rooms at the Quad. :beer:

    I have about 420! I spent $12 worth of resort credits last week on some Powerbars and a Diet Pepsi.

    Yes, one RC equals one cent. So 5000 would equal $50.

    Oh and to answer the original question, I have about 6k RCs. Although that will probably drop to below 5k after the triple bacon cheeseburger I got at 3 am at Harrahs Joliet last night.

    This is very surprising to me--generally it is best to blow through all available RCs every trip in order to maximize comps at CET...they will not give you discretionary comps beyond your initial offer with RC balances sitting there....

    How often do the 10x days happen? Do you find out in advance or is it just one of those things where you show up and it is happening?

    That's what i do. I have enough RC's per day to get me snacks, coffee, soda at the hotel convenience store. I finish my gambling about 12-1 am, then hit the store at the hotel to load up on snacks and soda before heading up to the room for the night. I do this everyday and at the end of my week i still have about $4.00 which i'll start using next time (in Nov.). I always go solo, so that's why i use my RC's on a per day basis.
    My rooms are always comped, my RC's are never wasted each trip, and that seems to be my best bet...........i never have to pay cash, i just use my TR rewards card at the store, usually it's about $10.00-$12.00 per day.........simple. YMMV.

    I have 120K. My wife has 104K. We use them for restaurants since the rooms are comped. I'm hoping for a 1-for-1 deal in which I would convert about 100K of them to $1,000 cash.

    RC's

    The wife and I both have over 20000 each. Would have had more but I purchased a Tommy Bahama shirt and the wife bought a jacket. As Diamond players at Caesers Windsor, Wednesdays are 10X RC's for us.

    Not to mention any possible changes to the program impacting a large balance or an unexpected gap in returning wiping out your balance after 6 months.

    I always cash out all points (cash or freeplay if possible) before I check out of any casino. MILFe, Boyd, Stations, CET, Four Queens, etc..

    I have about 200,000. The thing is when you have a local CET they can add up quickly, especially with the multiplier days. For instance in AC they have been doing 10x multiplier every Thursday this summer. They have them all the time. Plus I barely spend any in AC because those are short trips and they send monthly dining vouchers and buffet passes anyway, and you also end up eating the lounges sometimes. The most RCs I used was in Vegas a couple months ago. Used over 50k mostly for Celine tickets. Some people also use the TR visa which could add up to a lot.

    If I ever see a 1:1 redemption for freeplay I'll jump all over that shit.

    I had a little over 400k before last trip. Used it for a nice dinner and a bottle of wine.
