    I can not see any issue with giving them your credit card. We charge just about everything to our credit cards. Yep, had some fraud a couple of times. Just get a new one, and use another one in the interim.

    I'm curious about the value of Visa RTM for Vegas.

    Overview: Real time messaging is all about getting an ad in front of you when correlated with another activity - in Visa's case, with the use of their credit card. For Mlife/TR, presumably you'll get an [STRIKE]ad[/STRIKE] "offer" when you either:
    • Spend Money in Vegas
    • Spend Money at a Casino
    • Complete a stay at a Resort somewhere in the world
    • Book a flight to Vegas (or anywhere near one of their properties)
    That offer may show up almost immediately...or may come at a date & time when you're likely to spend money at MLife/TR locations. Pretty much the same concept as Google Ads, just with a different profile setup for you.

    The best value to MLife/TR is when you're in Vegas, maybe purchasing tickets for a show or staying at a restaurant, and MLife/TR/Visa can spam you with similar offers for the following evening. You might get an offer for 50% of an upcoming visit after going to Hawaii, or dropping a few bucks at the local casino, but these are very generic offers that (in all likelihood) won't be correlated with your MLife/TR tier or rating at all. Offers from MLife/TR or from your host should always be much better. I could be wrong about MLife's IT integration ability of course....:rolleyes2:

    Here's the catch that doesn't make sense for me: People with MLife/TR membership usually charge their purchases to their room, whenever possible. And with the Vegas duopoly, you're probably staying at MLife and charging stuff only at TR properties (and vice versa). How useful it is for MLife to spam you while you're staying with them is questionable. Maybe TR thinks they can draw you in further while you've escaped from your MLife resort...but that would require very quick, very targeted messaging that isn't exactly a hallmark of this program (yet).

    This might be quite useful at MGM/CET locations outside of Vegas. Not sure about Vegas itself - happy to hear how it benefits...anyone, really.

    Bruin - I agree with you. I just can't see how this is beneficial while in Vegas? This just seems like an odd concept.
