    It seems I'm discovering that many couples use only one spouse's card to play on. Having 2 cards with the same account.
    So, my husband and I have separate cards for Total rewards and I think a linked account for Mlife casinos. So, is it ok for us to each play a different slot machine while using my husbands card at the same time? Then just forget about mine, as he plays more than I do anyway?
    Not sure if I'm making it clear what I'm asking. Sorry. :eek:

    Yes its totally fine for you to play on your husbands card. Just have him go to the TR booth and get another card for you to use.

    Yep, that's what we do. Probably isn't officially allowed though. Make sure and run a $20 or so through with the other persons card to though so you can use them as a companion when looking up rates on the TR reservations calendar. It usually will give you slightly better rates than the one card alone.

    If twenty is enough to get an extra discount, then we must be doing it wrong or just not reaching that threshold of play on her card. I haven't looked with both cards in a long time because my g/f probably is barely over 100 Tier for the year. Any time I tried to look at our cards together, it changed nothing. Just checking now...yeah, still nothing. :( Generally speaking though, you're right, adding both people can help.

    And to be technical, I don't think playing on the same card is permitted by the rules, but they will generally look the other way for husbands/wives I think. But I was playing on my g/f's card when I was playing with you because I obviously wasn't gaining many points! :eek:

    LOL, no we weren't were we. It's hard to drink, talk, watch the sexy dealers, fend off drunk moms and still get much playing done!

    It's most definitely OK to play the same card in all CET properties. Obviously slots is not a problem and I have no problems with my wife and I using my card even at tables. Most times the boss will even ask "Put you two together" when him/her is handed only one card for both our buy ins. And if even an eye brow is raised by him/her I just tell him I paid for both buy ins, and then there's truly never a problem.

    Not relative to your specific question, but totally fine at downtown Boyd properties also. We only play on my card.

    Interesting.. I did combine with my Mom for Mlife, and I get nothing, ever. I'm starting to think maybe we would of been better off staying separate. Or gambling together on one card.

    That is what I thought but last week we were at Mandalay Bay and my wife did not have her mlife card so I gave her mine and then went and got another one. When I tried to put it in a machine it kept saying it was invalid. Tried more than one machine and it would not work. Same card worked later so I was assuming that somehow it was not letting the same card get logged into two machines at the same time. Maybe it was just a delay before my new card got activated?

    Thanks everyone for your replies. We will probably use one card then most of the time this trip and see what happens down the road. :wave:

    They can be logged on at the same time, might just have been a wonky card reader or a delay like you said.
