    No, not the "Escape to Total Rewards" but the "Epic Escape" which is being held during May 18th-20th.

    It says you can play at any CET hotel but then it states the location is: Paris Las Vegas Promotions Desk (Guests must swipe their Total Rewards card to activate)

    What does that actually mean?

    Does it mean you can play at PH, Caesars, Ballys or any other property but need to go to Paris at the end of the day to swipe the card to officially register?

    I too received the same email, but there was nothing about Paris.

    Here is a snippet from the contents: DON'T MISS OUT ON OUR ESCAPE TO TOTAL REWARDS GRAND FINALE WEEKEND -
    MAY 18-20 ACROSS EVERY TOTAL REWARDS CASINO AND RESORT ACROSS THE COUNTRY!!

    Click your favorite property to see what fun events and fabulous prizes you could win over Escape weekend, May 18-20 across every Total Rewards casino and resort!

    Just click your casino and it shows the date and times.

    BTW, Paris is my "home" casino so maybe I missed something there.

    When I clicked on Caesars for more info, this is where it mentioned about registering at Paris.

    When you click the casino and check Location. If you selected Paris then it will be the same, but if you Caesars or PH or any other and check the Location it has Paris.

    You are so right! What a screw-up that is.

    Going to my local NA casino - Harrah's Ak-Chin.

    Bet the place will be crowded as heck during the 6 hour window for our locale! Glad I have lots of TR credits for food while I'm there waiting. :bang:

    Just got back from my local Harrah's for this offer. It was bigger than I thought.

    Every half hour they gave away 3 gift cards to 3 lucky winners (drawn at random) for one of 3 stores through The TR Marketplace. The stores were Best Buy, Home Depot, and some shopping channel. The denominations varied from $150 - $500. Oh, and a trip for 2 to any CET property in the US and Canada.

    Not that many people knew what was going on or what this Epic Escape offer even was, so I thought my chances would be great!
    I didn't win a darn thing, but I did manage to pay for someones $500.00 Home Depot gift card while I was there. :grrr:

    So if any of you think about going on Sunday, go and try it. It might pay off for you.

    The points entered into this contest started accumulating April 1st, and you earned one entry for every 25 Tier credits earned. You also get one entry the day of the promo by swiping your card at the purple Kiosks or the TR desk.

    Had this same issue yesterday. The promotion at Joliet was that you had to join the Escape promo last month and earn stamps with your play. You got a stamp for every 200 points you earned up to five a week. I don't think everyone was even invited. Yesterday was the redemption day. You got a mailer telling you how much you earned and a reminder to come in. There were a bunch of dummies who got in line even though they had no idea what was going on and didn't get anything telling them to come in. They didn't even put signage up at promotions which should have told them it was invited guests only.:nono:

    Same deal at Horseshoe SI, drove down from Cincy to reedem stamps from play in April. 14 Stamps. It was a fisaco. They had signage posted and ropes, but not enough marketing staff to handle the crowd. 2 people, One for 7 Stars and one for everyone else. It was a 40 minute wait in line. I almost think they create the wait to discourage people from redeeming.

    I got my $75 bucks in TR comp dollars, and I did get lucky to hit a premium quad hand on $1 VP, and a few non premium quads. Racked up some decent points for my trip in two weeks and cashed out $1K ahead.
