    These are the instructions on the Total Rewards website:
    --------------------------------
    "HOW DO I REDEEM REWARD CREDITS?
    Total Rewards members can redeem their Reward Credits in a variety of ways. Whether you use them during every visit or save them up for something special, the choice is yours!

    REDEEM AT OUR CASINOS
    Reward yourself by using your Reward Credits for what you want, when you want. Below are a few suggestions on ways to splurge!"
    --------------------------------

    But there is no place I can see where they tell you how much your Reward Credits are worth. Is there a chart somewhere that explains how many credits it costs for use on food, spa, shows ? How much free play are the Reward Credits worth? How much off the hotel bill ?

    I only have 2000 reward credits. Enough for a sandwich ??
     
    Vegas in December, better than Illinois

    yeah, that $20 in RCs will get a sandwich. I don't know why they are doing 2:1 on food when most every other casino is trying to incentivize players to use points on their food over taking freeplay or cash. Another easy way is to apply any RCs to your room charges.

    I believe the issue is that this happens with restaurants where they are leasing the space vs operating it themselves.

    So they make a deal to still use them. but not as good a deal. Still tons of uses for RCs.

    As others have indicated in general - 1 reward credit = a penny. 100 = $1. That is the rate to apply against a room bill or at most restaurants on CET properties. At a few it is 200 = $1 so good to ask first - but those are still the exception. No reason to use them at those places IMO as there are plenty of other places to use them for more value. You can turn them into freeplay but the rate is 200 for $1 of freeplay for gold members.

    I appreciate why they are doing it. But It's just a contradictory policy when they seem to want people to use their RCs to get them off the books. 2:1 is a disincentive for using RCs. I know someone who encountered it all over in NOLA and they ended up using cash over RCs.

    @jercheer22 - for every 1,000 in rewards credits you have $10 spending power (virtually everywhere). To spend them simply give the cashier your total rewards card and your id. You will be required to sign the bill just like you were using a credit card. If you don't have enough credits to pay for the entire bill, you can pay the balance as you normally would. The credits cannot be used towards the tip, and common courtesy is to tip on the full amount of the bill, not the balance after the credits are applied.

    If you are staying at a CET Property, you can instruct them to use the credits to be applied towards your room bill at checkout as well. That is why many people charge their spending to the room and then pay at the end with their reward credits (rc's).

    The rc's can also be used at the gift shop in most casino's as well.

    You can also accumulate RC's at home which then can be used next time you're in Vegas. It's free and easy. I use my rewards credits to pay off the resort fee. Here is the link: http://web.socialrewards.com/sr/
