    :wave: Ok, so after all the posts I have read about which is better for who and the type of player you are. I have come to the realization that I am more along the lines of a Total Rewards type of guy. I am a low to mid level player who can only get out to Vegas about once or twice a year if I am lucky. So with my players card for the strip already determined what card would be good for me down town on freemont? I am normally a Craps or Blackjack player with some slots if I get hammered at the tables (meaning I am on a cold streak). So I need the experts advice. Also I plan on bringing about 5K with me to put into my home casino as front money so I do not have to deal with carrying cash on me or ATM fees. Opinions about this would also be helpful as well. Thanks

    Total Rewards is only on the strip. Check totalrewards.com for a list of casinos.

    As to $5k - I would carry a few thousand with me, and some in the safe. That way I can play where I want vs dealing with cage. Just me.

    Personally I've been treated well by the El Cortez on my $200-$300/day budget, qualifying for free Cabana Suite rooms, free food and free slot play every three months. Plus they send a bi-monthly newsletter with more coupons with 2-for-1 entrees and double-point days.

    One thing to remember with getting comped rooms downtown is that most weekdays you can get those rooms for $30-$40 anyway, and unlike Caesars you are only earning points at one hotel (except for the three Boyd properties). Free is always great, but certainly not worth breaking your budget over.
