    So, here is the situation.. I am fortunate enough to have received 2 comped nights through the total rewards website but it only allows me to book through (I believe) June, it's for a 3 month period I believe (March through June). I am going with my fiance (soon to be married) to Vegas in August for a semi-honeymoon (the real one will be some place tropical during the cold/rainy season in the Northwest), we would naturally be delighted to receive two free nights at Paris or Planet Hollywood as offered from March through June for our stay in August!

    Do you guys think that I am likely to either receive the same offer for the August time frame or that I should call them and see if they will book the offer now for August? This offer is coming from a trip we look for 4-5 days over the 4th of July 2012 and gambling I did then. Since there isn't any casino in my area and I can't go to Vegas any sooner I think my points that I earned 7/04/2012 will be expired by 8/8/2013, does that mean I will lose the offer too?

    If you don't think they will extend the offer into August, do you have any ideas about what I might be able to do about it? :D

    Thanks for taking the time to read and maybe even respond will all your experience!

    With CET, generally no need for an offer. Go to their website, log in with your TR account, go to the Reservations page, put in your dates and you may have more nights comped there than you would with any offer code and you can see a year into the future, I believe.

    You can keep your points from expiring if you earn points on Total Rewards Marketplace. You can earn 1 Reward Credit for every qualifying $1 you spend through Total Rewards Marketplace.

    I'll have to take a look at that, never visited their marketplace.. Maybe I can get a deck of cards or something and keep my points alive :p


    I believe, I'll go take a look now, but I believe I can only book out as far as June. I'll take a look though and see if I'm maybe looking at the wrong screen :)

    It isn't just for casino related things. They have partners like Target were you can buy just about anything you would normally buy anyway.

    As mentioned before, don't go by the offers they have given you, but log in to MyTR, put in your dates, then view calendar. You can go past June.
    I already have my comped rooms reserved for Halloween!!!

    Just what SMO said. You can book/compare up until the middle if April 2014 on the calender, just click the latest starting date, then click 2 months, etc. The calender allows you to see all the hotels, just a few, or one hotel including weekly, or by month. This will continue to update as time goes on for 2014. Currently it goes up to April 2014.

    Okay - for all those CET newbies.

    1 - When posting, try to put your question in the subject. It helps others find answers.

    2 - CET offers are not the best way to get rooms. Log into the site and attempt a booking for the dates you want. The results are often better than an offer.

    3 - Do not go crazy trying to hold onto points. Your worth to each casino is measured in your Average Daily Play. Doing something that looks like you have become a player for a day will lower you average. Buying something online should not cause this problem. But, make sure you know what it is you are trying to save 1200 Reward Credits are worth $12.00 - big deal!

    4 - Your TIER points expire Dec 31st each year.

    5 - Your reward credits expire after 6 months of no activity.

    I use the marketplace all the time. I'm always buying something from iTunes or target. It's great and easy.

    Yeah was noticing that when I logged on, it appears they already went away! :p

    Well, I'll take a look around and see what I come up with. Thanks for the responses everyone!
