    I am Canadian (no US address) and want to add some money (or purchase something) on my TRewards, so I can extend the expiry date.

    I know via Facebook, I can add $ on the Caesars Casino online games. But I want to know if there is any other way. I can't buy a Caesar's gift card as they won't ship to Canada.

    Any ideas?

    If you have a lot of points you could try sending your card to somebody going down and have them put a couple of points on.

    I've done that for a few people in the past but probably can't help here since I am not going again until December.

    I just had this situation play out. I was unable to use my card and the expiration date for mine and my wifes was 10/06/12. We are arriving in Vegas 10/08/12! So we would have lost our TRewards.

    Go to their marketplace and order something. We did something small, a Restaurant.com gift card and used a coupon code for 60% off. We spend $1 and change each and got a 2 restaurant.com gift cards to use in Vegas. They credited our TReward balance in about a week and extended our expiration for 6 months.

    Just buy something through the TR market place like walmart. You can easily find stuff on there for $1 or buy something you actually need.

    How many TR points are you trying to save?

    Keep in mind that this activity will lower your ADT considerably and may result in less offers.

    Which activity are you taking about?

    Buying something on the Total Rewards Market Place or sending your card with someone to play it for a few points?

    Play for sure will trigger.
    Not positive about market place... but would expect it would. Do not know for sure.

    Total Rewards Marketplace shouldn't affect ADT.

    If you have a good enough ADT, then one dingle usage shouldn't trash it either if you sent card with someone else. However, if you are a lower level player it could damage offers. Some people sending their card all over the country on the Great Race to get $750 in RCs could spend all of that on a room if they were a lower level comp player yo begin with.

    shopping thru the TR Marketplace will extend the "life" of your RCs and increase the balance as long as you shop "through" the Marketplace...

    DH & I were in Vegas this past February, and since then I have earned a whopping 2,660 RC since getting back - which is a lowly $26.60 in actual credits but my personal goal is to get up to $100.00 in credits by the time I head back in January..and my RC dont expire until 3/16/13

    I have recently made a few large purchases that should bump me up to close to $40 in the next few weeks and then my plan is to shop online for Christmas and go through the Marketplace each time..

    However, I will lose my fabulous Tier Score of 553 on Dec. 31st...:eek:
     
    We're booked - hope we can keep this trip!!!

    I've used the TR marketplace before, it did not have any noticeable effect on my ADT or offers... I actually have to do this again, as my rewards are going to expire before my FEB trip.

    Thanks, I bought a restaurant.com certificate through the Marketplace. We'll see if I get some more TRewards and a six month extension.

    Interesting thread.

    As said, Tier rests Jan 1.

    Total Reward credits expire after 6 months of no activity.

    Meanwhile, I wonder if TR is catching the stupid-bug the MILF has...

    I've got 3 separate dates for the expiration of my TR credits, two from different emails, and a third from the TR site.

    This worked like a charm. I bought a Hussong's certificate. Today, my extra points were applied and my expiry date extended into March 2013.

    Now I can use my TRewards this December! I'm doing the happy dance!:santa

    I downloaded one song for 99c from iTunes via the TR Marketplace and about a month later one Reward Credit posted and my credits are now good through February 2013.

    When i clicked the iTunes link in the TR Marketplace it opened up iTunes on my computer. I was suspicious that it would actually work, but sure enough it did.
